Author: Sean Stewart & Jordan Weisman

Cathy cannot manage to find more than a few days to relax in her hectic (and mortal) life—she barely has time to put the mystery surrounding her father to rest before she finds herself targeted by a group of Ancestor Lu’s professional killers!Recognizing she is a serious threat to everyone in her life, Cathy makes plans to leave town. But her friends, Emma, Pete, Victor, and, surprisingly, Jun, unite to convince Cathy that they must finish Lu once and for all to have any chance at peace—mortal or immortal. In order to defeat Lu, the friends must come together in a way they never have before.Meanwhile—unbeknownst to Cathy—Victor has made the ultimate sacrifice hoping it will bring him closer to a normal relationship with Cathy. But when Victor is seriously wounded and Cathy finds herself attracted to another mortal with similar feelings for her, Cathy’s world turns upside down and she is forced to make a decision about her future with Victor, while his life hangs by a thread. What will Cathy decide, and how will their epic battle with Lu play out? Find out in the newest adventure-packed installment of the Cathy story!

Cathy's Ring almost got a Maura's Choice like it's predecessor, Cathy's Key. But I felt that Cathy's Ring started off really slowly and the ending was good but not how I would of liked it to end. I won't give any spoilers away, but I wish the ending, and maybe this book all together, would have had more action in it. I felt it was lacking in that, and the ending was one where the books ends but you know the world continues and you'll just have to imagine what will happen next without knowing completely. I don't think there will be a 4th book, I wish there was. Like I mention before the book started off a bit slow but then it picks up and it's just as fast paste as the the other two Cathy books. This book doesn't have you investigating anything really, which I was kind of sad about, you just read it like a normal book. Like the other two books it's in a diary kind of format with illustrations/doodles and words on each page. Which makes the book look attractive and entertaining. The best thing about the Cathy series, other then the interactive part of it, is the look and format of the book. The books are laid out in a way that is appealing to audience and will have anyone want to read it, even if you think it's not your type of book. I don't really have any complaints about it other then it's a bit slow, and then the ending. I also don't have anything else to say that hasn't been said in my previous review of Cathy's Key. I mean this series was wonderful and I recommend it to anyone. It's a easy read series, but is entertaining and will leave you wanting more. The illustrations are fabulous and the writing and dialogue are perfect. Many times throughout this book I found myself laughing out loud at some of the dialogue. I promise that you wont regret reading this series.

Superb review. I've seen this series and picked it up but then thought better of it. I just don't know whether or not I'll like it (and now I'm on my book-buying ban). I;ll look for it after the hols in all of the sales. I love after Xmas sales!
