    A small band of cats lives in the labyrinthine alleys and ruins of Nizamuddin, an old neighbourhood in Delhi. Miao, the clan elder, a wise, grave Siamese; Katar, a cat loved by his followers and feared by his enemies; Hulo, the great warrior tom; Beraal, the beautiful queen, swift and deadly when challenged; Southpaw, the kitten whose curiosity can always be counted on to get him into trouble... Unfettered and wild, these and the other members of the tribe fear no one, go where they will, and do as they please. Until, one day, a terrified orange-coloured kitten with monsoon green eyes and remarkable powers, lands in their midst setting off a series of extraordinary events that will change their world forever.

    Ordeal reading

    The book has many inviting illustrations and a good blurb. It uses impeccable English not routinely found in Indian novels. The binding and paper used is very good. I would definitely commend the Editor Mr. David Davidar for having done a fabulous work.
    Reading this book was a big ordeal and I kept reading it in a vain hope that the story will appear and a plot will reveal itself. Nothing of the sort happened till the end. All it has is few cats some stray and some domestic which fight among ...
