I bought this book a long time ago after reading Tad WIlliams' Otherland series. I really enjoyed this book. the point of view of a cat. I always recommend this book to everyone I meet. It's one of my most treasured books. ( )

I loved this book when I was young. It helps if you like cats, but you don't need to be a cat person to appreciate the story. Some of the images from this book stuck with me for years. I recently read it again and it still holds up pretty well. ( )

I loved this book when I was 12 and I loved it again as an adult. Great adventure fantasy through the eyes of a cat. Really fun read. ( )

I just found it boring. Maybe because I don't like cats anyway? ( )

We are not shy

—W. S. Gilbert
Dedicated to my grandmothers, Elizabeth D. Anderson and Elizabeth Willins Evans, whose support has meant so much, and to the memory of Fever, who was a good friend, but a better cat.
First words
The Hour of Unfolding Dark had begun, and the rooftop where Tailchaser lay was smothered in shadow.
