The explosive finale to the Feral series by New York Times best-selling author Cynthia Leitich Smith.
Anti-shifter sentiment is at an all-time high when Kayla’s transformation to werecat is captured on video and uploaded for the world to see. Suddenly she becomes a symbol of the werebeast threat and—along with fellow cat Yoshi, lion-possum Clyde, and human Aimee—a hunted fugitive. Meanwhile, a self-proclaimed weresnake has kidnapped the governor of Texas and hit the airwaves with a message of war. In retaliation, werepeople are targeted by law enforcement, threatened with a shift-suppressing vaccine, terrorized by corporate conspiracy, and enslaved by a top-secret, intelligent Cryptid species. Can Clyde rally his inner lion king to lead his friends—new and old—into battle against ruthless, media-savvy foes? A rousing blend of suspense, paranormal romance, humor, and high action.

Cynthia Leitich Smith is the acclaimed and best-selling author of three books in the Feral series, as well as the Tantalize quartet and two graphic novels based on the Tantalize series, both illustrated by Ming Doyle. She lives in Austin, Texas, with her husband, author Greg Leitich Smith.From School Library Journal:
Gr 9 Up—Austin, TX, is the venue for the final battle between those fighting for humanity and free-will and those plotting world domination. A creature claiming to be a weresnake has taken the state governor hostage claiming that werebeasts are the superior species and need to take their rightful place. To capitalize on the already existing fear and mistrust of werebeasts, an incriminating video depicting a werecat's transformation is made viral. A secret police force now threatens the species with a serum to control shifting and behavior. Fighting back is an unlikely group of allies consisting of a werecats, a werepossum/lion hybrid, a geek/goth human, a vampire with a soul, a guardian angel, and others working to set things right. Smith once again weaves an action-packed plotline with campy alternating narration by Clyde, Aimee, Kayla, and Yoshi, all while dealing with the complex themes of acceptance, tolerance, freedom, and self-esteem. All this is done in a nonpreachy style to which readers can easily relate. A successful conclusion to a thought-provoking series.—Donna Rosenblum, Floral Park Memorial High School, NY
