The Golden Cat is a follow-up to the highly successful The Wild Road and the fairy-tale story of Tag the tabby cat, who after the death of his mentor Majicou inherits the task of the caretaker of the wild roads. When two of the King and Queen's three golden kittens go missing, Tag is asked to find them. One of the three kittens is the famous Golden Cat, but which one is it? Tag soon finds himself on yet another perilous journey across the wild roads with Leonora, the third kitten, in tow.
It's obvious that Gabriel King has a great love for the feline species, which shines out with great warmth from her writing. Observational detail rubs shoulders with moments of comedy strong enough to evoke a reaction from the hardest of hearts. There are also elements of high drama as she delves into the darkest side of vivisection and animal cruelty. A great read in its own right and a worthy follow-up to The Wild Road. --Elly Russell, Amazon.co.uk --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
