Emma's sister is missing and her parents haven't been the same since she left. Emma just wants her life and family back, but how much is she willing to do to find her sister? Can she become a cat, fight a troll, and sneak past the faeries? Not even Emma knows.
The Grintis take creatures we're familiar with--along with some we aren't--and take a new twist on them. Shapeshifters and faeries have never been so interesting. However, the solutions to Emma's challenges seemed to either fall in her lap or was very similar to the last one, more variety would've added more interest. Overall, though, Claws was an entertaining read.
