    Agh! I'm so damn torn about this.While I'm thrilled that this book has finally been released (after two and a half years of waiting for a word from the author), and while it was amazing to dive into Shreffler's unique, mysterious world again, I feel like this book could have been so much better.It's not a secret that I'm a huge and loyal fan of the Cat's Eye series. Over the past 5 installments, I've fallen hopelessly in love with all those beautiful, mysterious characters, most of all Burn and Agh!

Over the past 5 installments, I've fallen hopelessly in love with all those beautiful, mysterious characters, most of all Burn and Caprion, and I've re-read all books countless times in eager anticipation of the follow-up. But, now I feel kinda cheated. Between the constant change of POV, the lack of "screen time" of all my most beloved characters, plot holes, the strange pacing and Sora's regression from being a mildly bad-ass outlaw to a dress-shopping, swooning noblewoman (and I'm not even counting her piteousness when it comes to Crash because she's always been that way), this book had me annoyed and frustrated too many times to ignore.And don't even get me started on that ending!Still, while it wasn't perfect, I devoured this book, hence the three stars. This was quite a bit darker and gloomier than any of the previous installments (even more so than Volcrian's Hunt), and it had me on the verge of tears a couple of times.There are new allies, new foes and a few tragic losses. Be prepared.I don't even know if this was it. Can I expect another sequel or is this how the story ends? I can't tell! Agh!

Seriously though, WOW doesn't even begin to cover how wonderful and incredibly fascinating this series is. Every time I read a new installment I swoon and laugh and happily allow my heart to be broken. And let me tell you, Krait's Redemption was SO WORTH THE WAIT (over two years, my goodness!).What I LOVED:I loved that Krait's Redemption picked up right where Ferran's Map left off. Sora, Crash, Burn, and the rest of the amazing characters that have joined Sora's quest are still in search for a way to defeat Cerastes and his crazy plan to awaken the Dark God but they are quickly running out of time. Tension, mistrust, and powers beyond their comprehension are also catching up with them, making this a whirlwind of a journey that left me breathless and at the edge of my seat! I loved it so much! Please forgive me if this is nothing more than plain fangirling, but you must understand that this series is EVERYTHING to me. There are only a few series which I can 100% sincerely devote my love for and basically follow until the end of my times, and The Cat's Eye Chronicles is one of them. I love all of the characters, the amazing and complex world-building, the MAGIC, gosh, THE BEST SLOW-BURN ROMANCE IN EXISTENCE (Crash and Sora forever!) ♥. I simply love it all. T.L. Shreffler is a masterful storyteller and every time I get ready to read a book in this series I know I will not only love it, but that it will also destroy me.And Krait's Redemption did. Completely. And I would go through it all over again because it is THAT good. This installment was fierce and exciting! There wasn't a single dull moment, everything was a frenzy, what with plans to fight back, seeking out old alliances, and even partaking in old celebrations. But gosh, the epic battles and the prices to pay after them... so intense. My heart still aches to be honest. I am currently in a glass case of emotion and I don't think I will be recovering anytime soon. I cannot say much but old fans of this series must surely know why I would hurt so much. All I can say is: I NEED THE NEXT BOOK. NOW. (Please) This cannot be the last book. I REFUSE. No no no. THEIR STORY IS NOT DONE YET.Final Verdict:Krait's Redemption is the highly anticipated fifth installment in the Cat's Eye Chronicles and it is absolutely the book us readers and the story itself deserved. If you are new to this series then prepare to the most epic journey full of magical battles in the company of the most intriguing cast of characters led by a human, an assassin, and a wolfy. To old fans of the series... Brace yourselves!

It was so hard putting some of the characters next to their book one selves and the story pace left you gasping for breath.Sora's character progression in particular was amazing. She seemed so much more sure of her self and her desires and there were so many times I cheered for her. Gone was the awkward girl from the beginning of the series but I loved that she still kept her big heart and kindness towards others. I also really loved that she wasn't wholly against being a noblewomen and wasn't wholly for being a traveler and that she could see the good and bad in each path. This really made her decision much more relatable and realistic. Ultimately, I was very pleased with the decisions she made for herself at the end of the book.Also, Lord Gracen Seabourne....I see you! He was so unexpectedly swoony and made for a great ally, especially looking at his character at the start of the series and his initial meeting with Sora to how the characters again meet in this book. Their interaction had me laughing out loud multiple times. It also made me think you better make a move soon Crash!Speaking of our favorite assassin, Crash's role in this book was really reduced by Sora's abilities in my opinion. It wasn't that he was incapable, it was just that he wasn't suited for all the tasks. In particular I enjoyed how he stepped up to the plate to gather aid from The Hive and also still struggled balancing his feelings towards Sora. It gave him a humanity that he was missing from the start of the series. Also, I really liked the wide range of people that fought together against the Shade and how he, and the other male characters acknowledged Sora and her abilities and made her an equal part of the group. Well, not without some angst, but you know that's what we're here for. I'm also incredibly happy about him being able to pursue his goals and dreams as well as the development of his relationship with Sora. Even though Burn moved to more of a minor character, I really enjoyed how seamlessly he integrated into "noble" life and what a great support system he was for Sora............................................................I can't believe this is happening, but I am so incredibly heartbroken and quite frankly, pretty pissed off. There is just this heavy sense of deep unsatisfaction. Everything felt so...final. I am really upset about a lot of the ending because it simply did not need to happen...some of these characters deserved better, deserved a better ending. Deserved a better FUTURE. I am so conflicted over this book. Is book six even relevant? I don't see what story line can possibly come next now that all of the characters have gone their separate ways. Drowning in my feelings. Send help.

The characters lacked the depth they have had throughout the series,pore Burn could have been written out of the book completely, he served no purpose. As for the plot, the overall concept was wonderful but it felt rushed, there was to much cutting from one character scene to the next, and our major players were spread thin and separate from one another. I believe had this been split into two books it would have been more enjoyable and allowed for more storytelling on the authors part. My largest grievance is with the ending.....ARE YOU KIDING ME!!! I have never been so gutted by an ending as I was this one, it felt as if the previous books lead to this point that I was expecting and the author never delivered. To say I was disappointed is an understatement, I felt as if someone had died (there is plenty of that in this book)Even with my disappointments, this is still a fantastic series and the author should be commended on her imagination and creativity. If you are thinking of reading this series, perhaps leave out this book and imagine your own ending.

    This book felt really rushed. The way the ending played out was sooooooooo abrupt. I think this would have been a great book if Ms. Shreffler had elaborated on A LOT of scenes and events. This is my favorite series ever but this book just didn't seem like it had the same amount of effort put into it. I'm a bit disappointed since I waited so long for this book. Sad.

The Cat's Eye Chronicles have been all about Sora, her growth, and the relationships she has developed along the way. This book perhaps suffered from multiple POV syndrome. There are too many characters doing their part for the mission, yet at times, it serves to only dissipate the tension that was building. The book picks up right where the last one ended. We are still just a few days from the Winter Solstice. The Shade is a big threat and Sora has been poised. We learned all about the political maneuvering the humans are involved in and how The Shade has used it to its advantage. We get to see The Hive again and the Grand Masters are not that wonderful. We see Crash make some very mature decisions. We see the redemption promised in the title - I only wished it would have been longer and that Caprion may have enjoyed it a bit more.Sora has become a strong fighter and she is able to play the game. She has some insecurities and plays the socialite role - seems at odd with what we know about Sora, but it is short lived, so I am okay. We also see more of Seaburn - oh how I wish my heart didn't belong to Crash already...Overall, a very good 5th book. I would have been satisfy for this to be the end of things, since pretty much everything is resolved. However I am glad to see that the next book is set two years in the future. Highly recommend this series.

As soon as I saw the official release date announced, I crossed my fingers hoping that I'd be asked to read and review the newest book by T.L. Shreffler. Just a few days later I got said email and my answer was something along the lines of, "YES! GIMME GIMME!" Krait's Redemption picks up right where the previous book left off. So if it's been a while since you've read Ferran's Map, I'd recommend going back and giving yourself a refresher. Sora is still fighting off the effects of the poison she was infected with by one of the Shade assassins, Ferran and Caprion are trying to figure out how to read The Book of the Named, and everyone else is trying to do their part to figure out how to stop the Cerastes before it's too late. The fifth book in the Cat's Eye Chronicles starts right off with a bang and doesn't stop. It's fast paced and has a quickly developing plot. There is so much going on and each of the many characters have their own part to play in the story. The point of view changes a lot, but in a good way. There are so many strings to the spider web that is the plot that's it's necessary to see what each spider is doing and thinking. For those of you who are wondering about Sora and Crash, don't worry, their relationship continues to develop. Although, I was a tad disappointed I had to wait so long in the book for them to finally interact after everything that had happened in the previous book. Overall, I think Sora and Crash will be my favorite relationship of all time. It's just done so beautifully. After reading Krait's Redemption I'm definitely going to go back to the beginning so I can watch it happen all over again. In Krait's Redemption we also get a few answers that I know some people have had since book one. Such as, who hired Crash to kill Lord Fallcrest, Sora's stepfather? And so the plot thickens. As always, 5 stars of awesome for Ms. Shreffler and Krait's Redemption. The writing is superb, and I don't use that word often. The characters are well developed and complex and the story line is intense and moves quickly. This is definitely a book you'll need to clear your whole afternoon for because you won't be able to put it down. ** I was provided a copy of this book in return for an honest review

Wow.You know, I am honestly glad the wait for the book was so long, because if I was still raw from the last two and jumped right into this one, it might have broken my heart. Waiting 2 years or more, it gave me time to cool down and detach. While the story and characters still held a beloved place in my heart, they didn't consume me anymore. I could handle the ending maturely. Well, as maturely as *I* can.I am so proud of Sora! This is the quality character development we need in YA. The perfect coming of age. Before, in my mind, it was always always "Crash and Sora," but Shreffler very beautifully had Sora come into her own over this series, and now I can see her as "Sora" by herself. While what she and Crash had was electric, I no longer consider them a 'matching set', if you will. They stand on their own. Gut-stabbing, if you are super "Crora", mind you, but overall, begrudgingly satisfying.There is so much that happens in this book, too much for me to summarize, but thrilling and satisfying and many ways. I can't tell if this is the last book, which is a good and bad thing. While it very well *could* be, it's also open ended. Sora may have more adventures ahead of her yet!Now I will say, keep an open mind about this one. There are a lot of elements that die hard fans are not going to like. However, if you approach it like I did, open minded, and not overly emotionally invested the way we fangirls have a tendency to do, I think you'll see the bigger picture and be happy with it. A fantastic series, and now I can close this "chapter" of my life with peace. I'm glad to have some closure! You won't regret reading this.

Caprion knows his duty but is distracted by Krait, who may actually be his old friend. In the meantime Cerestes always seems like he's one step ahead.I really enjoyed this, I couldn't put it down...I had to see what happened. A lot of it was very emotional but also strangely satisfying to the story. I enjoyed Caprion and Krait a lot more than I thought so that was a pleasant surprise. I liked that we got more into Crash's psyche and all of the feelings he has about his past, present and future despite the fact that he tries to keep them buried. Sora, again, disappointed me. Through the first three books I thought she was amazing. She was naïve yet strong, bold yet shy, she stood up for herself while taking every opportunity to learn more about the world. In Ferran's Map I felt like she became a little too know it all, and acted more the sniveling spoiled heiress than before. On top of that she seemed to have lost her brain, she let rumors and gossip sway her without putting any actual thought into it. And ::SPOILER:: I didn't like how she led Lord Seabourne on and then acted surprised, that wasn't nice. Besides that though, I loved it and the fact I felt such strong emotion shows you how well written this was and how it just sucks you into the story. I know there will be a long wait for the next book but I sincerely look forward to it.

Then it was said that Sora stashed the long bow under her mattress, but then the next page she still has it and then the third page she does not have it? I am cunfuzzled.Small***SPOILER*** ahead.Also it was quite obvious that RIP Moss and Krait are one and the same in Ferran's Map and confirmed in this book, but it was not confirmed whether or not she is also "Bug" from Volcrian's Hunt? Is it supposed to be implied?, because "Bug" was never brought up except that one time. And it was hinting that the sacred weapons were destroyed in RIP Caprion's light, but never confirmed. So my last question is...Is there going to be another book? Or is it just left like this? I will be left feeling very unsatisfied and unhappy if this is it? Like talk about book torture with sucky ending... unless she is writing another, then an ending like this is fine.PS Viper and Sora CANNOT end like this! All in all I love this series! I could read over and over again. As always 5 stars and 2 thumbs up.

The main characters are Crash and Sora and why did I feel like she kept focusing on other characters throughout the whole book? And then THAT ending? Any changes and progression Crash had made were all null and void. Even the progression that Sora had made felt like it severely regressed to the point to where at the very end of the book, I was going, huh, this sounds just like the Sora that started this series. 3. THAT ending. I knew it was going to happen, because I read this thing where the author said she'd started the series with the intent for it to be "Sora's Quest" but it kind of turned into "Crash's story" and so I just knew that meant this ending was coming.3. Again THAT ending because it doesn't end. Which, knowing that it took years for this book to come out, does not bode well for me waiting around to read the next book.

I have been putting off reading this one because I didn't want to have to wait too long. And we don't even have a specified month for the release yet...

Secondly, we got only two scenes from Krait's perspective and I wanted her "Redemption" to take place throughout the whole book, not just within 5 seconds and then her death. Third, I didn't think that whole thing with Caprion was really necessary, I mean he was supposed to be this super powerful Harpy who could defeat any of the Sixth Race, but he gets taken down that easily and spends the rest of the book as a zombie? And then his death!!! Fourth and final, ARE CRASH AND SORA EVER GOING TO GET IT TOGETHER??!!!??!?!?!!? I mean come on. Oh well.

    I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed the book. Once I started reading, I could not put it down. The story was engaging, there was plenty of action, lots of loose ends being worked on or tied up. All the characters feel like I know them. The previews for the authors other works in the back gave me a sigh of relief that there will be a book 6. The writing is still wonderful, and much more mature in this book. It flows well, and I was always aware of what was happening, and where my point of view was I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed the book. Once I started reading, I could not put it down.

It flows well, and I was always aware of what was happening, and where my point of view was from, even following the 3 main threads that get woven into the tale. I can say there were still some surprises for me in those threads, but they were very pleasant. Given the nature of this book, it is a much better reading experience to have read the previous Cat's Eye Chronicles, and I'm happy to see that the treads that run through them are kept consistent.

    I cannot express how much I love this series and the characters, all of them except Cercetes. This book is bittersweet because it's a parting of the ways for my characters and my hope for their future together seems bleak. But, at the same time if you don't follow your heart to find out what you truly want then your life will be incomplete. They both have a lot to learn about themselves and neither are ready to settle down, no matter what their hearts tell them. I can't wait for the next story!!

    I've come to the conclusion that T.L. Shreffler hates me because she just made me sob until I got a headache, not to the mention the fact that Book 6 won't come out for another year. Shreffler, if you are reading this I need you to know that I just simply won't allow you to end this series. It has become my all time favorite and considering how much I read you shouldn't take this lightly. I love you and you are an inspiration! Great work on this series.

    The problem is that I pre-ordered. It dropped to my kindle and I read Krait's Redemption without reading any reviews. At least then I would have been prepared. Or, I could have chosen to skip the book entirely. I have truly enjoyed these characters, but the ending of this book...not so much! I do feel better now that I know there is another book coming.

    I’m curious where it goes from here; I was satisfied with this conclusion.

    Tbh, I’m losing interest a little. I liked the warrior priestesses, and I liked the ending.
