Book of the Week: Beasts of Tabat by Cat Rambo

I have been waiting to see one of Cat Rambo’s novels published for a long time, so I’m really pumped that this one is out now!


From the blurb:

When countryboy Teo arrives in the coastal city of Tabat, he finds it a hostile place, particularly to a boy hiding an enormous secret. It’s also a city in turmoil, thanks to an ancient accord to change governments and the rising demands of Beasts, the Unicorns, Dryads, Minotaurs and other magical creature on whose labor and bodies Tabat depends. And worst of all, it’s a city dedicated to killing Shifters, the race whose blood Teo bears. When his fate becomes woven with that of Tabat’s most famous gladiator, Bella Kanto, his existence becomes even more imperiled. Kanto’s magical battle determines the weather each year, and the wealthy merchants are tired of the long winters she’s brought. Can Teo and Bella save each other from the plots that are closing in on them from all sides?

Here’s a little bit that you need to know. It’s Cat Rambo’s debut novel, but  she’s published a -lot- of short fiction in the past. You can find a listing/discussion of those over on her website.  She’s also been putting up a bunch of free fiction recently as part of the book release–a list with pointers to all of them can be found on that same page.

And just so you know that I’m not alone in my love of Cat’s work, here’s a few of the early reviews:

I can honestly say that Cat Rambo’s Beasts of Tabat is one of the best and most interesting fantasy novels I’ve had the pleasure to read during recent years.

This was a fantastic introduction to Rambo’s writing, and I can say without a shred of doubt that her worldbuilding is outstanding, wrought with care and full of fine detail that makes it all pop on the pages and come alive for the reader. – Bibliotropic

This book is just tremendously written. It’s evocative, and intense, and uncomfortable, and utterly unlike most of the fantasy being produced today. – Amazon review

So go out and  get your copy today!!!
