Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Having saved the city cats from a fate worse than death, Varjak Paw finds himself the leader of a new gang. But will the pressure take its toll on this brave but sometimes naive cat? Soon the city erupts in an all-out gang war as the evil Sally Bones attempts to control all cats. Horrified and outnumbered, Varjak and the others must fight for their freedom or die trying.

Review:

"Said's spare, taut writing effectively propels an increasingly grim plot, and makes Varjak's growing maturity and leadership appear both natural and admirable. It's a rare sequel that so surpasses its predecessor..." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"It is fast paced with vivid battle scenes that make it impossible to put down. The society that Said has created with his warrior cats is both realistic and fantastic. The unique combination of animal tale and martial arts is a winning one." School Library Journal
