Book Description:

September 18, 2012
Kai Emery likes to be indiscernible; however, his infatuation for his classmate, Sienna Fynn, has made his invisibility status all the more impossible to upkeep. His world spirals out of control when he discovers that he is a shapeshifting were-leopard, and finds himself unable to control his newfound anatomy. An unpredictable vampire enters his life, leading him down a path that soon reveals his destiny, and discloses another world, filled with magic and terrifying darkness. When he finds himself in danger from the god of magic and darkness for disobeying a curse bestowed upon his kind, forbidding him from falling in love with a human, he has to fight for survival, and protect everyone that he loves.

 My Review:
 A Tale of The Other Kind  is set in the beautiful mountain range and forest-covered area of Sabie, in Mpumalanga, South Africa. This story is told from the teen hero's perspective. Kai is a strong character that finds out something about himself that changes his whole world. Kai is someone, or something different than he thought he was. As he figures out the secret of his true identity, and his lost father, new evils and other world creatures become a part of his life. Author Leandi Cameron has created a world full of powerful Gods and supernatural creatures. I was excited to read this book about Shape-shifters. If they fall in love with a human, the powerful and evil God Quinn, will destroy that love by killing their human lover/mate. There is a legend behind this evil villain's actions, too long to put here. You will have to read the book to find out more.

Kai and Sienna are a great couple whose love goes through many ups and downs.I like them together and how they truly fought for each other and for their love. The ending is quite shocking, but thrilling. It's nice to read a YA Paranormal book that has some new twists written in. This book will be enjoyed by older teens(ages 14+) and adults. I wouldn't recommend this to tweens or middle grade readers(ages 8-13) because of some violence and bad language. Everyone else will love this story full of action, romance,and sacrifice.
