A Short Story originally published in the Kiss Me Deadly anthology.

When reluctant teen witch Brenda Collins is sent by her mother to a magical pet shop to pick out her animal familiar, she settles on a small tawny-striped kitten not realizing it’s a shapeshifter currently in hiding. Discovering the gorgeous but troubled Owen’s secret plunges the witch-in-training into a dangerous and romantic adventure that will test her magical abilities like never before.

Familiar is a stand alone 10,000 word young adult short story, originally published in the “Kiss Me Deadly” anthology.

My rating: ★★★★★

Brenda is a witch...and not a very good one at that. Why? Because she just isn't interested in practicing witchcraft like her very talented mother. but to get her insisting mother off her back, she decides to give it a try. First things first, she must pick out a familiar...a witch's pet who will keep her company and help her with magic. Only she doesn't realize that the cute, little , striped kitten she chooses is a actually a shifter in hiding (Owen, who i like to call a werecat even though he prefers shapeshifter :P)

As she helps out Owen, Brenda find herself drawn closer to him...and Owen could possibly be feeling the same way. Or is it just the witch/familiar bonding spell?

I loved this story! It was very cute and funny! I read the story sooo fast that when I came to the end I was sure I had skipped some pages, lol. It was that great! I really wish there was more to the story though..

BTW I read this story in an anthology, Kiss Me Deadly.
