Destinies In Motion by Liliya Galitskaya brings us into the adventures of Tacker or Tac, a house cat who is more than just that. He becomes the king of the forest and a feline that loves his family so much he seems to merge destines with them. He would do anything to help them. The Vladners family is a normal, everyday family. Lana is Tac’s mistress, the one he connects with the most, and it is Lana that must confront the magical changes that the family notices. The biggest problem in this, however, is that Lana does not actually believe in magic.

What a unique and adventure-filled romp. I have read stories and adventures from the pet's point of view before, but this one is a fresh breath and new take on that. I found myself smiling almost the whole time through this book even if I was not supposed to be smiling (serious parts) because I could see my cats in Tac and that will always make me smile. The writing is well crafted and flourished in a way that pulls you in. I found every passage descriptive but not overdone so that you could simply immerse yourself in the story and enjoy every moment. I could picture the characters, the places, and the adventures of treasure hunting and more. If you are someone who enjoys the outline of a quest with a unique telling of the tale, I would recommend this book. I fully enjoyed it from cover to cover.

Here is the link to the website of this very large and exquisitely-detailed new novel by Liliya V Galitskaya, which incorporates her background in Ukraine, her Biography and her reasons for writing this extensive first part of a trilogy.
From the lovely cover to the professionally-enhanced interior design, this book is a beautifully-told tale that is unusual in that it is uniquely suitable and emotionally-satisfying for readers of all ages. Enhanced by 22 black and white illustrations, all lovingly done by Mz Galitskaya and shown in color on the website,you can see where her insights have come from and have been the inspiration for this entrancing work.

This book took two years to produce and self-publish and I was so impressed by the original manuscript that I agreed to edit it meticulously although I no longer do such work, being retired. Along the winding road I laughed, became absorbed, exulted, empathised and enjoyed all the adventures of the many characters, both human and animal, which populate this wonderful fantasy.

This book will inspire you, astonish you and transport you into a wondrous land where humans display all types of emotions and animals who speak fluent English are also revealed as human as we are. One of the intentions of writing this book, flowing from both Mz Galitskaya and myself, was that this book will hopefully encourage us to look at and treat all animals in the same way as we treat humans, i.e with respect, compassion and love.

I strongly recommend this handsome, incredible and carefully-crafted tale for your reading pleasure and perhaps as a gift for anyone, young or old. Enjoy.
