Another good book by this author. I always like reading shifter books with a twist. Something that is a little different than the norm. And this one did not disappoint. There was enough drama and twists in the story to make it interesting and not at all predictable. It also included a bit of romance, which I like. Dangerously Close to Extinction is definitely worth a read and I look forward to reading more from C.A. King.
Dangerously Close To Extinction (Knollville Legends Book 1) by C.A. King was a pretty okay read that kept me reading.
The first book in a new fun series, I went in with an open mind and excitement. As an avid reader of this authors works I knew I was in for something original, twisted and action packed. I will say that this book hit most points, but it did, for me, lacked a little when it came to the romance. But I think that more so had to do with the fact this book is a pretty short read. Coming in at 184 pages, there was a lot packed into this wonder, so I believe the love-development might have suffered because of that. To be a little blunt, it felt forced and a little off balanced, but I believe and hope that as this series goes on, it will even out. Just needs a bit more time for it to fully become believable.
Overall this book is worth your time and the read. It’s well written, well built, and it will hook you. It has a strong plot, that stands on its own, and the action and shifter lore was on point. To end, this book gets my high recommendation and my stamp of approval.

C.A. King has written another Beautiful story! In this book the Shifters are amazing! I love the twist and turns that this cats vs. dogs story has to offer. Knollville sounds like an interesting place and I can’t wait to see what happens next in this series of legends.
Dangerously Close To Extinction (Knollville Legends Book 1) by C.A. King
Dangerously Close To Extinction (Knollville Legends Book 1) by C.A. King was a fun and exciting fantasy novel. I loved Tawny and Felix and the variety of shifters in this novel. The author did an amazing job and was very creative with them. I also really enjoyed the plot and felt that the storyline was easy to follow. The reader is immediately pulled in at the start of the novel with the mention of Tawny’s dad disappearing. The story progressed quickly from the start which made it difficult for me to put down.
Something else I enjoyed about this novel was the artistic cover. It was very appealing and I felt like it drew me in and helped increase my interest in reading the novel.
Overall this novel was an easy and enjoyable read. I definitely look forward to the next book in the series and I highly recommend it!
Dangerously Close to Extinction by C.A King was a great read! I really struggled to put this book down. I would give this book a five out of five stars. I loved the air of mystery and all of the questions that you get right at the beginning. Tawny was a fun character to read, I loved her quirks and had a lot of the same questions she did.
Dangerously Close To Extinction (Knollville Legends Book 1) by C.A. King. This is the first book in the Knollville Legends book and I loved it. Its the story of Anthony Puma and his daughter named Tawny. Tawny is a young woman who has 2 rival gangs after her only to get to her father. Tawny is also a WereCat and she has no idea. She also has no idea why people are after her dad but when all these secrets from her past start coming to light it begins to make sense. Throw in one of the guys after her being super hot and throws a whole new spin on everything. This book is full of shifters, werewolves, dangerous adventures and its for sure a page turner. Its a fun read and I hope the next book continues the story of these characters!
I do not know about you, but when I see my favorite author releases a new book I am all about getting it first and fast. The problem is that I usually finish it right away and need to wait for the next book to read. C.A. King is that author. I love her stories. She really puts in her heart and soul into her work. You can always bet there is action, adventure, likeable characters, characters you do not like, far off lands, and many more exciting things. Dangerously Close To Extinction is no different. There is an adventure that makes you look around every page you turn to see what is going to happen next. The roller coaster ride starts on the first page and ends on the last page. I cannot wait to see what Ms. King is going to write next.
This is a story of werecat shifters. Tawny is a werecat but has no clue. Her father disappeared and now there are a bunch of people looking for him. Werewolves and werecats are the two main shifters here. I like the idea of this story but it seems unsettled. There is just something about this that doesn’t seem to flow. The conversations or the actions of the characters. I felt the “mate” situation need more time to grow. There were harsh words/actions between the two MC’s. Then the next page all is lovey dovey.
This isn’t my first book by this author. Normally I enjoy stepping into her world and seeing what she creates. I love reading shifter stories but this was just fell flat for me.
Dangerously Close to Extinction is the first novel in the Knollville Legends series by C. A. King. This is my second novel by this author.
Finding herself caught between not knowing about her past and being abducted by someone unknown to her, Tawny begins a journey to discover more about herself before it’s too late.
This was an interesting take on the shifter genre and one I hope there is more of. Tawny was a different protagonist then what I normally see and I felt her name fit her character because it was also unique.
There was a lot of twists and turns and left me wanting to quickly turn to the pages to see what happens next.
With school starting again tomorrow, I’m glad I got a chance to read this and can’t wait for the next book.
Dangerously Close to Extinction is the first book in the Knollville Legends series by C.A. King. I have read all of Ms. Kings books now and have loved exploring all her work. She is definitely one of my ‘no questions asked, just one-click it, authors’. Her stories never disappoint, so I didn’t even read the blurb for this story- I just snatched up a copy as fast as I could. So, I really had no idea of what to expect going into the story. I didn’t even know it was the first book in a new series. I saw the beautiful, intriguing, and elegant cover- and Ms. King’s name, and I was sold. This book turned out to be a completely wonderful surprise, in all the right ways. A paranormal/shifter story with an original spin- full of secrets, history, rifts, feuds, mystery, drama, kidnap, missing persons, discoveries, and so much more.
Tawny’s father is missing- and there are ‘people’ hell-bent on finding him. She’s a little afraid, especially when she sees some eyes looking into her home one night. She’s heard stories of large animals in the area, so that’s a little disturbing, too. Then she’s pretty much kidnapped… What exactly is going on? What do these ‘people really want? What is so important? And how does her father fit into the picture? What happens when secrets are revealed, and Tawny learns the truth? Will she trust her instincts, and if she does will they lead her astray?
WOW… What a great way to start a new series! Colour me impressed! Ms. King certainly knows how to tell a great story- I was hooked right from word go. I will definitely be reading the rest of this series, that’s for sure!!! I wonder what she has in store for us.
Thank you, Ms. King!
