Off Leash (Freelance Familiars #1) by Daniel Potter

When Thomas Khatt awakens to the magical world following the sudden, violent death of his elderly Archmagus neighbor, he doesn’t get the standard package of awesome power combined with a hero destiny. Nope, he trades his thumbs in for a tail, tawny fur and four feet with a very low co-efficient of friction on linoleum. His destiny as one of three talking mountain lions in the magical world? To be sold at auction and bonded to some pimply faced apprentice for life. 

Thomas would rather eat dirty kitty litter. 

Armed only with an impressive set of chompers and buckets of snark, Thomas faces off against a lightning-bolt throwing granny and a sexy union recruiter as he desperately tries hold the threads of his old life together. To stay off the leash he’ll have to take advantage of the chaos caused by the Archmagus’ death and help the local Inquisition solve his murder. A pyromanic squirrel, religious werewolves, and cat-hating cops all add to the chaos as Thomas attempts to become the first Freelance Familiar. 

My review:

Off Leash (Freelance Familiars #1) by Daniel Potter is my first experience from this author. It is a fun, sweet paranormal fantasy. After a sluggish start this develops into a really good story. It took me a bit to warm up to Thomas but he has such a great heart you can’t not like him. Thrown into a new reality and a new body Thomas has a lot to deal with and he does in his own way. I love that he is strong enough (unsure enough) not to fall in with the party line and that is what makes the story rock! A fun new series and adventures I am looking forward to. Looking forward to the next book Marking Territory.
