How I got this book:
Downloaded during a 2015 Halloween Facebook party, All Hallows Reads

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A cat familiar on her last life searches for that purrfect witch. The only problem is the one she finds doesn't know she's a witch. A cute, witchy short story!

At just twenty pages, The Ninth Life is a nice introduction to Montague's writing style and could also be a novel prequel although I understand that novel does not yet exist - hopefully I will find out if/when it does! We meet a cat who hasn't been born yet and a young woman with unrealised witchy powers, and their meeting up makes for a cute tale. I especially liked reading from the cat's perspective. The Ninth Life's short duration did not allow much space for digression so I appreciated Montague's talent for scene setting and concise description. She has certainly piqued my interest towards reading her full length novels.
