REVIEW: Buttercup: Remembrance
Book Title: Buttercup: Remembrance
Book Description: This adventure starts off with a narration of the main character from their vehicle as they approach a space station, as the ship lands fear is visibly seen as the person doing the narration steps off their ship. The narration of the main character continues until they reach a table where a gambling game is played. The character is revealed to be a feline relic hunter of Terran Relics. Once the relic is in the hands of the hunter a flash back to a cat laying next to a woman using either the very relic or one similar to what is being sought after appears in the minds eye of the hunter. Within seconds of that a fight breaks out with the hunter and the group the hunter got the relic from. After the fight is over, the hunter remains standing with those that attacked, either too wounded to continue or slain. The hunter holds the relic against their head and the story ends.

This story is about hunting for what has been lost. I like that the relic hunter is a cat. Most cats large and small are referred to as hunters and usually find their prey. Another thing about this story I like is that it is well done in the vein of that one sci fi bounty hunter show that is currently popular. The combat sequence shown in the story is another indication of that, especially when combined with the natural agility that cats have. While the story ends with the relic hunter finding the sought after relic, I am not sure the story is strong enough to carry onto another issue without it just being more of the same, unless more of the background into why they are hunting the relics in the first place is revealed as the story progresses. The cover art looks great with vibrant space related colors and clearly showing the main character in all their combat glory and indicating that a cat has the ability to use all their paws to their advantage! The interior art is just as well drawn as the cover art, the only exception I have is that the entire book is black and white save for the flashback and the actions the weapon discharges are taking. I personally think that if they were going to add color, esp as sporadic as it was outside of the flashback, it might have been better to just leave it out. Overall the book is entertaining and has potential, and for those that love cats, this story could become quite something to ignite the imagination!
