    1. 4.5When I borrowed this book from a library looking for an easy quick read I didn t expect that I will be hooked What a pleasant surprise Set in a world that is very familiar to ours, think of Alternative Universe with one major difference magic and magical creatures and magical persons are real and live with humans Emma s world is a bit too much similar with ours and that the main reason why I can t give 5 stars I will explain why In a world where magical creatures are real and live with humans [...]

    2. I think this book was very intriguing and I only rated this book 4 stars is because I didn t like when Emma figured out fairies were disgusting little creatures

    3. This is one of those surprising books that didn t go quite as I expected Most middle grade fantasy fic I m familiar with tends to take place in a purely fantasy world often with castles and pseudo medieval settings for instance The Star Shard or it takes place in a modern world where fantasy is unexpected but shows up like Cold Cereal But rarely have I seen this contemporary urban fantasy setting that is fairly common in adult fiction in stories for kids.Emma and her parents have just moved away [...]

    4. In order to find her missing sister, Emma must trust Jack, a one eyed, magic less cat and become leader of the forest cats On top of this she must deal with her newly judgmental friend and school bullies.I ve been wanting to read this book for months My library didn t have it so I just bought it on my nook Then I could never find time to read it Finally, I had an excuse So today, I sat down, powered up my nook, and I read this book Now this was a very good book It was beautifully written, it had [...]

    5. I really enjoyed this book I loved the action, and the world a lot I thought it was cool that people new about the enchanted creatures I did miss the humor and romance in this book I feel like it was lacking those two things a lot I did enjoy Emma s character and how she thought Definitely a good quick paced fantasy read.

    6. I LOVED this book Truly It is fantasy, but I didn t get lost The characters were truly charming and I am totally going to marry Jack I mean it Hands off He is my man I can t wait for the next one

    7.

    8. I really Liked this book, It is a little cheesy but the world is incredible If you are in a book slump, this will help

    9. I loved the cover of CLAW, it s simple, it s magical, it says everything of what the book is I especially enjoyed the facts given in every chapter about cats, witches and other supernatural being from CragWiki.I enjoyed the diverse cast Emma is clever, likable, real, independent and fearless Jack is funny, charming and a rogue I enjoyed the talking animals how they retain they re behaviors while being magical the descriptions of each of them, which I found fascinating.At first, you ll think this [...]

    10. In modern day America where magical creatures of many kinds roam some of them dangerous to humans Emma s older sister Helena has gone missing Their parents will do anything to find her, even move into a rundown trailer park next to where the crags magical beings hang out The first sign that anything is different is the talking cat who already lives in their trailer Before long Emma is up to her neck in magic and danger, determined to find her sister.I m far from being the target audience for thi [...]

    11. Hi How are you Oh, I m good thanks Since I finished my book, I would rate it a out of 5 Claws book s I rate it a 4 because at times this book gets a little boring but, sometimes you just have to keep reading and the book will slow start getting better.That s my opinion on a book called Claws Bye_For_Now

    12. As a first book from this couple, this story had great potential The idea of a very dangerous modern world where humans live alongside fantasy creatures has been done many times before, but not often quite like this I really like the idea of rat like creatures hacking people s cellphones and an online fantasy creature wiki called CragWiki My biggest issue with the book is that it seems like so many things established in the first half are never followed up on, or never developed At one point Emm [...]

    17. I love this book The world, even though it has aspects that I ve seen before in other books, is amazingly interesting and creative The characters have understandable but complicated motivations, and the story overall is just fun to read My main problem with this book, though, is that there isn t enough of it There are so many things hinted and sprinkled throughout this story that never really get as much time in the spotlight as they should have, such as the segregation between the crags and hum [...]

    22. I know this book was written for Middle School kids, or even kids younger than that, but even with that in mind, I still didn t care for this book.I found it odd that right off the bat, we know about all these fictional creatures The hag, the coatl, the pride, the trolls, the ratter, the faeries I mean I just found it odd that people knew about them and were completely okay with it I mean I think it would have been a bit interesting if Emma found out about them secretly and had to hide it from [...]
