When a werecat swears an oath to protect the human daughter of an Alpha werewolf, she and her charge become the target of a band of bloodthirsty werewolves in the spectacular urban fantasy, Oath Sworn (A Jacky Leon Novel: Book 1) by K.N. Banet. As a werecat, Jacky Leon is content with her solitary life as the owner of a bar outside of Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas. A hostile takeover of a werewolf pack is causing panic in the city, and Jacky is hoping she is far enough away from the chaos to stay out of trouble. When the eleven-year-old daughter of the deposed Alpha werewolf appears at her door and requests protection, Jacky is duty-bound to help her. Determined to stay out of the werewolf fight, Jacky reluctantly assumes guardianship. However, when a rogue group of werewolves oversteps their boundaries with the intent to harm her charge, Jacky ignores the law and seeks vengeance.
Fabulously executed, Oath Sworn by K.N. Banet is a phenomenal urban fantasy featuring werewolves, werecats, and other fascinating supernatural beings. The engaging characters, a dynamic plot, and a fast-moving storyline create a riveting tale that held me on the edge of my seat from the intriguing first page until the last; I stayed up all night to read it. All of the characters are skillfully written, including the villains. I admired Jacky and enjoyed her character's progression from a loner to a team fighter. It was heart-warming to witness her expand her personal boundaries and become part of a community, even if she opted to stay on the fringes. Containing action-packed scenes, a feisty protagonist, and a deadly conflict, it is a spellbinding novel that promises to enthrall urban fantasy fans who are shapeshifting story enthusiasts!
