Witch, Cat, and Cobb is a short, quick and lovely read, managing to really engross the reader completely in this world, even though we don’t actually spend that much time there!
Princess Breanwynne is not interested at all in her intended husband, and to escape her arranged marriage, she flees to the nearby swamps, at the suggestion of her cat, Fen, who has been keeping his ability to talk very quiet indeed. They search for the Swamp Witch, who will change both Brean’s and Fen’s lives forever.
For such a short book, Pendragon manages to squeeze a lot in without it feeling crammed in. She does a great job of slowly revealing the different aspects of the world without spoon-feeding, and really gets the reader to connect with the characters. It was great fun to watch this all unfold, and see how it’s resolved at the end.
It’s hard to say too much about this without giving big plot elements away, but this is definitely worth reading if you’re looking for a cute, short, queer fantasy tale you can zip through with a smile on your face, you’ll for sure want to check this one out.
