The Cat Masterby Bonnie Pemberton
I read a lot of good books but the great ones shine like gems among them to name a few: Wolf Brother, Inkheart, Eragon, and now... I wasn't expecting The Cat Master to blow me away; the blurb just sounded silly.
Bonnie Pemberton has populated her story with the animals you expect to find in an urban landscape: feral and domesticated cats and dogs, and wild animals such as birds, reptiles, and possums. This adventure story is told from the various animals' points of view. The characters range from the self-centered lizard named Orie, who never helped anyone until a cat's cry shook his world, to a selfless friendly dog named Tenba, who would help a cat in need if it asked for it, and a possum, who often thinks with his stomach and forgets about any consequences that may arise by chasing that runaway bug. And the cats? Well, wow... How do I describe all of them? Just get the book and enjoy it.

Synopses & Reviews
"Buddy stood in the fading sunlight, his muscles twitching and tense. The Gathering! The new Cat Master would be anointed tonight. His mind raced. Jett would do anything to stop Buddy's coronation, and if his plan succeeded, Zekki, Pris, and Shan Dara would be in great danger. The old Master's words echoed in Buddy's brain, and a resolute sense of duty filled his heart. He would honor his father's wishes...even if it cost him his life."
Tension is growing between the Ferals and Indoors, and the old Cat Master, spiritual leader of all felines, is dying. Time is running out, and he must choose a successor that will rule wisely and keep peace among their kind. Of all his descendents there are only two brothers that are qualified: Jett, the powerful, ambitious Feral who has survived the perils of the alley and quiet, complacent Buddy, who was rescued by a human and now lives the pampered life of an Indoor. With his last breath, the old cat decides. He alerts Buddy through mind-talk. "Rise from the alley, my son," he commands. "Of all my blood, you are The Chosen." But his message is intercepted telepathically, and Darkness suddenly reigns in the cat world. Driven by jealousy and desperation, brother is pitted against brother in the fight to rule their species...a struggle that will confront Buddy's deepest fears and threaten the lives of those he loves most.
Against a backdrop of dangerous alleyways and a scorching Texas summer, Buddy discovers the power of friendship, the lure of evil, and the knowledge that no peace can come without sacrifice.
A fantasy adventure about a feline world in which two warring brothers fight to become the next Cat Master.
