Book Review | The Golden Owl (Clockwork Calico Book 1) by Lana Axe

A genre that is growing in popularity . . . A story that tweens and teens will love . . . A cat that I wish I could own!

This is a great story for youngsters who enjoy a great read, an intriguing story, and a really unique kitty cat!

This story is somewhere between Bolt and [the original] Inspector Gadget (I know . . . I’m dating myself a bit) with just a hint of Runaway (yeah… REALLY dating myself there).

If you’ve ever seen Runaway, you’ll get it. If not… well, IMDB can enlighten you, but it’s NOT a movie for tweens or even teens so maybe just don’t.

I can’t help it though – just the mention of robotic spiders brings that movie to mind – that or Wild, Wild West *insert shudder here* 

Thankfully, The Golden Owl has none of the creepiness – just the cool tech aspect!

Not to mention – you have to have respect for a cat who is actually concerned and determined to rescue her [not master] human friend!

Definitely recommend this book (and/or series) to tweens and teens alike!

More about The Golden Owl:

Calico Cogg is a cat like no other.

Rescued from the streets of Ticswyk by esteemed inventor Lionel Cogg, she has been fitted with implants to enhance her natural feline abilities. When Lionel is kidnapped, Cali must put her skills to the test to free him.

Dark schemes are in the works—a plague of tiny clockwork spiders are wreaking havoc on the city’s inhabitants. Only Cali, with help from her trusted mouse friend Emmit, can get to the bottom of it all. With a criminal mastermind planning a major heist, Cali must race against time to unravel his plot before he escapes with the city’s greatest treasure.






I received the book free in exchange for an honest review.

25 Posts of Christmas Day 17: Lights, Camera, Apple iPhone?

Have you seen it?

The new Christmas commercial from Apple…

I would have warned you to grab a box of tissues but it would have ruined it.

We “old-fogey” parents complain about technology ruining family time and we are bitter about our kids spending so much time playing video games or texting but this video shows an entirely different perspective, something a lot of people never think of when they see a teen on their iPhone® or Gameboy DS®.

I hope this commercial will give teens the idea that their family is more important than they sometimes realize. And I hope it will show parents that they don’t always know exactly what is going on with their kids. Don’t jump to conclusions parents. Just LOVE your kids.

OK… I have to go find another box of tissues now so I’m just going to keep this one short and sweet. I think the video says it all anyway.

I mean… How can I top that? Way to go Apple!

One other comment come to mind as I watch this. Too often, we participate in things but we miss the “little moments”.

The argument goes on and on that it’s better to “BE THERE” than to be video-taping but something like this can help us all hold onto those precious memories forever!

MERRY CHRISTMAS! 8 Days til Christmas

GOD Bless you!
