Like the first book, this one seemed to be written for a young adult audience. I really liked the concept (of course, I'm a cat lover!), but the execution felt a little off. I felt as if the last part of the book was kind of tacked on at the end because it needed to be a certain length. Or maybe it just read more like a few short stories with the same characters. I still think it's a shame that they couldn't tie these barque cats together with the ones from the Talents series.
