Cat Karina Book
In this book, Coney lets his imagination flow freely as he comes up with a future version of Earth where nothing is the same as we know it today. On this version of Earth, the once large population of humans is now but a mere small one as very few humans have lasted.
On the other hand, the lack of humans is made up for with the planet being populated by a few different species. All of these species are either mutated and evolved versions of genetical experiments done a while ago or are here thanks to their alien ancestors who came to Earth a very long time ago.
The first species that live here on this Earth now that you get to meet from our review of Cat Karina book are the Cai-Men.
The Cai-Men are crocodile-like beings that also had crocodile ancestors and are a species who were initially bred for solitary work in the swampy lands. Thanks to their obvious advantage for the swamps, they are perfect for this type of job and can do it with ease, unlike the humans which will have a pretty hard time there.
Next are the shrugleggers, described in the novel as sturdy bearers of burdens, these creatures are descendants from an alien race that came to earth so long ago that no one even remembers anymore what they looked like when they first came to Earth. That’s definitely a pretty long time.
And last, but surely not least, probably the most prestigious race of all, the Felinas. Cat-like creatures who had jaguar ancestors, beautiful, smart, cunning. They can be described as very attractive creatures that have made a reputation for themselves as the most successful species among the ones that live on Earth.
This particular story of Cat Karina focuses on Karina herself. The most gorgeous of all of the Felinas, and it shows the story of her destiny, and how she is destined to change the world.
