Review: Thud by Skye MacKinnon 

This kitty loves to play with baubles…


Four years into being a mother, Kat needs a break. She’s barely killed anyone since she gave birth and the panther within her is frustrated. She needs blood, murder and mayhem.

When she’s offered the chance to infiltrate a strange cult’s annual festivities, there’s no stopping her. Along with her three devoted mates, Kat will have to look beyond the holiday cheer to find a killer.

A Christmas sequel to the bestselling Catnip Assassin series, an urban fantasy reverse harem romance featuring a bloodthirsty cat shifter assassin and her hunky mates. A book to warm you in the depth of winter.

This book can be enjoyed as a standalone without having previously read the Catnip Assassins series.13

My thoughts

I have missed Kat. There is no one who can have as much fun threatening someone who just tried to poison you with tree sap. (chuckle) I might be fibbing a bit there, but you will have to read the book to know whether I am telling the truth or not.

Thud is the fun romp you have been looking for this holiday season. Skye MacKinnon brings an unusual twist to how to murder someone or sacrifice someone (because no one in a cult would kill someone (wink)). Then you have Kat going undercover with the guys where the men and women are kept separate and Kat gets to clean all day. Like I said, Thud is unusual. 

Kat brings sass to the commune and she may not have all her weapons, but she can still bring style to her kill. I know it seems that I am leaving the guys out, but MacKinnon focuses all on Kat except for some key moments where Kat gets to play with more than catnip (wink).

I had a lot of fun being back with the gang again. I missed everyone working together, but I have hope for the future. In the meantime, Thud has me looking at one particular holiday decoration a little bit differently and wishing that MacKinnon had written a holiday series instead of just one for the season.

I received a free copy of this book and I am writing a review without prejudice and voluntarily.

Rating: 5 out of 5.
