Apprentice of Magic provides an introduction to all kinds of characters, among them is Puss, err, I mean Roland Archibald Whisperpaws V in all his kitten cuteness. I’m happy to say that and he and Gabrielle appear in Curse of Magic as well! But they made their original debut back in Book #6 of the Timeless Fairy Tales series – Puss in Boots.
I wanted to make it easier for you to catch up on their adventures–and even meet Gabrielle before Curse of Magic comes out–so I’m discounting the Puss in Boots ebook! For March 20-24 Puss in Boots is priced at only 99 cents on the Amazon.com store!

For those of you that have already read Puss in Boots – what did you think after learning more about Roland’s background in Apprentice of Magic? Did he deserve to have the collar put on him? 😉
Does anyone remember what the Shimmer Conflict is? It’s mentioned two or three times in Wild Swans and I can’t remeber what the heck it is.
Kitty hasn’t explained it yet. Its a major spoiler prob the final battle against the chosen.
I don’t think so because that doesn’t match up with the timeline. Wild Swans is before a lot of the other things that happen and the book talked about the Shimmer conflict seemed like it already happened or was currently happening in that book.
If you look carefully you’ll see that the shimmer conflict is only mentioned in the epilogue of wild swans which is set several years after the main events of that story

I think he was a good friend and helper for Angelique, but that the accident of wearing the collar for so long was probably a good lesson for him (even if we can’t see that right away in his interactions with Gabrielle). He totally deserved having it put on for a few minutes, as she originally intended ;-)!
Patricia King says
When he first appeared, I actually stopped reading and said yo myself, “I know this KitKat! He was the star of Puss ‘n Boots!” Even went back to make sure (and ended up re-reading that book.) As for being silenced, he’s lucky he doesn’t live with me. He’d been wearing that collar on and off – depending on how tolerant I was feeling that day. But truthfully, I like him a lot. He added a lot of humor to both stories. (Plus, I’ve had cats most of my life).
I think his presence was good for Angelique. I also think that he deserved to be silenced for a little while. Not as long as he had to suffer with it, though.
