This sequel to Said's Varjak Paw was even better than the first book, and stands alone pretty well. The plotting is much tighter than the first, and I read this pretty much in one gulp.

Varjak has mastered the Seven Skills taught to him by his ancestor, Jalal, and saved the cats of his town from the Vanishings that plagued them in the first novel. But without the fear of Vanishings as a distraction, the fearsome Sally Bones and her gang have seized control of the entire city. No cat who is not part of her gang can hunt freely or move about unhindered, and those who disobey face fearsome retribution. It doesn't take long for Varjak and his friends to be labeled outlaws, and soon it becomes clear that if Varjak wants to end his days as a Free Cat, he must face Sally Bones head on -- and she is the only other cat he has met that also knows the Seven Skills.
