I, Effing Feline, have little time to write today. Too busy cleaning up for Christmas, since all four of Mr V’s children will be home for the holidays and I don’t want them to think I neglect my fur. Here’s a picture of me, bathing:
Since next Sunday is Christmas, this will be my last post of the year. Also the last post from Newborn, Mr V’s latest release. Our assassin heroine wasn’t programmed for love; she was meant to kill quickly and commit suicide. However, a stint in hospital gives Jo the unexpected time to discover her full humanity, and she’s fallen in love with Darby, the bodyguard of the woman she’s supposed to assassinate.
But love weakens her compulsion to kill, and her distant programmers can’t allow that. And so one day Jo hears an ominous voice in her head.
“The instruments say you can hear me,” the voice said.
I swiveled my eyes to look around. “Who’s there?
“No one, Jo,” Darby said as though from the other side of the planet. I couldn’t see him; couldn’t see anything. “It’s just me.”
“I’m guessing you answered me out loud,” the voice said. The sound quality was different than using my ears—more muffled and hushed, and it stank of stale smoke. “Don’t speak; that’s an order.” The woman’s calm confidence hinted that she was used to having orders obeyed.
Effing Feline here again. What the hiss is with the censorship of my picture? I’m a cat. We’re always naked. Who the #@)(%@ censored my picture?!
She was born to kill
Jo Beaverpaw is born fully grown, well-armed, and impatient to tackle her Destiny … which is to kill her alien nation’s most wanted fugitive. Her life is pre-programmed and straightforward – until she meets the sexy bodyguard of her intended target.
If you’re intrigued by the idea that the Schwarzenegger-assassin in the original Terminator could’ve been a bad-assed (yet petite) female, don’t miss Newborn.
