As for the magical cats, Goldeneyes seemed to mature quite a bit in this book, and, even though she was still impatient and cranky at times, there were also times when she softened her attitude somewhat and actually listened when others told her not to be so prickly. The relationship between her and Andy continued to grow and the bond between them became stronger.
Patches remained my all-time favourite cat. He was strange and goofy, but so adorable and willing to please that even the most jaded of the Catmages could not resist his sweetness.
I don't see a third book yet in this series, but I hope Ms. Yourish publishes it soon! I can't wait to see what happens next in Andy's and the Catmages's battle against Saunders and the Wild Ones.
The story continues the theme of the first book. The young people involved with the cat mages are challenged with unusual situations, developing maturity as they encounter the need to exercise good judgment, take responsibility for their actions, and struggle with many ethical questions. The cat personalities are very amusing, though the human characters, especially the adults, are sometimes rather shallow.
A child's story, definitely, but I will watch for and buy the next book because I'm only 70 years old and will never "grow up."
