P.A.W.S. by Debbie Manber Kupfer is an excellent little book. A good book for a young adult to read. It’s about belonging about finding your tribe. Mary spends many years as the odd man out. When she enters a new world and finds her people she finally learns what family is all about. Great story, with great characters. I think I will be remembering this author because I want a little more.
This was a really good book. Debbie Manber Kupfer added a bit of a twist to the usual shifter genre and I liked it. This novel had a few twists and turns which made for a very interesting read. I loved following the story of Miri as she learned about her heritage and also found love. Debbie Manber Kupfer is a talented author and I look forward to reading more from her.
P.A.W.S. (The P.A.W.S. Saga Book 1)
by Debbie Manber Kupfer
I enjoyed this book. I do feel that this is more appropriate for young adults/teens than adults but it was still a very enjoyable read full of magic. I liked the main character Miri a lot. She always felt different from others and I loved the feeling she got when she transformed for the first time, it made her feel more like herself. In this story there is friendship, growth, danger, adventure, history and more. This book draws you in and keeps you entertained needing to know what’s going to happen. There are many different characters in this book, some you will love and some you will loath. I recommend this book.
P. A. W. S. is the first book in the P. A. W. S. Saga series.
This is my first read by this author and it was a good experience. While I don’t usually read YA, this book was entertaining. There were a couple of references that would make this book questionable for anyone under the age of 16. I enjoyed the author’s unique touches on the supernatural and the world building was excellent. Overall, while this book was fairly tame for me, I think it would be a good read for the younger crowd. A teen would most likely relate well to the main character who feels out of place in the world and who is learning about who she is.
This was a great supernatural story.
Miriam thought she was a normal young girl that is until her grandma dies and leaves her an amulet of a cat.
Miriam doesnt know what i means until one day she shifts into a cat.
A werewolf called Josh comes to rescue her and takes her to P.A.W.S where she can learn to use her powers and learn all about her heritage as a shifter.
Miriam thinks her life couldnt be better but little does she know there are evil forces building up against her.
Alistair is Miriam’s biological father and a powerful werewolf. But that isnt enough for him. He wants Miriam or more importantly he wants her powers from the amulet around her neck. So he build’s an army to attack P.A.W.S so he can get to her.
Can Miriam learn how to control her powers to save herself and defeat her dad or will it be no good and Alistair will win.
The intrigue and mystery of this one will catch you by your bootstraps and keep you hooked from the beginning. Miri’s grandma has passed but she died with a secret. After such a heartbreaking blow, she’s left alone and isolated in a boarding school in a new state. Miri discovers she’s special in a very magical way when bullied at school that her grandma’s secret didn’t die with her after all. Miri is caught between the balance of her powers: Does she save herself and can she save her family as well?
The more she learns about these strange, magical powers by a few select others, the family’s history comes alive. This opens up the world to a completely different type of danger.
In the first of this series, we meet and go into the adventures of the Partnership for Animagi, Werewolves and Shapeshifters, better known as P.A.W.S. of St. Louis. Twisted, this book is, but in the best way: Almost like a guilty pleasure. Page-turner cause you’ll be craving for a new chapter after chapter. Wonderful characters who you can’t help but love from the way they’re special powers are connected to their stories is exciting to bring you more into the book. The world-building is incredible in this one! Easy read because you’ll be craving for more of the adventures these guys take us on.
I give P.A.W.S. (The P.A.W.S. Saga Book 1) by Debbie Manber Kupfer, 5 stars.
I will admit, I was recommended this book by the author a couple years ago as something I may like in an event, purchased it, then unfortunately forgot about. My TBR list is huge and I can stop buying. Anyway, I finally got the opportunity to read it and I can’t believe I waited so long. I would say this is a teen book, but as an adult, I enjoyed it immensely. As a cat lover, this is what drew me in and I really like Miri as a main character. She feels alone and not quite understood, but she learns more about herself and steps up when she needs to. It does have a feel of being inspired by the Harry Potter books, but the author makes it her own in the types of characters and the world she creates. There are so many other characters I am dying to learn more of as the series goes on. Then there is the story itself. Miri feels like an outcast and all alone. Most people, especially teenagers, can relate to this. She is finally able to find a place she feels more comfortable, but events happen that do not make it as easy as it seems.
If you like a world of magic and fantastic creatures and people in a young adult/teenage age group, this book is for you.
Review by @erinwolf79
P.A.W.S. (The P.A.W.S. Saga Book 1) by Debbie Manber Kupfer is a YA paranormal fantasy story that will delight its targeted audience. The story is about shape shifters of all kinds and there is magic and secrets, danger and violence, and lots of drama and adventure as we journey along with a young woman who finally finds where she belongs and the magic inside her. But there is a darkness that threatens all that. It will be interesting to see where Debbie takes us next as the story is open to many possibilities.

P.A.W.S. (The P.A.W.S. Saga, Book 1) by Debbie Manber Kupfer was a great fantasy read.I loved the world building and history that was introduced throughout the book. The story moves through different points of view which really helps the development of the story. I found it kept my attention more so than just pages of history and world building. Miri was such a young character and I found her adorable and I had a feeling of over protectiveness.
