The characterizations are very strong, consistent, and well done, Each member of the group contributes to their survival although their individual motivations are obscure, especially those of the alchemist and the seer. Their journey is difficult because of the mountains and weather although they follow something similar to the great wall of China with its frequent posts manned (?) by cat soldiers. The bulk of the story concerns the expedition with its trials and tribulations. Their rigid code of conduct is frequently tested, especially when they establish psychic contact with something, possibly an Ancestor.
I liked the book, although it dragged a bit and sometimes unecessarily dipped into the occult, but it was so well written that it was all enjoyable.
Leigh writes with the lyricism of myth and her world building reads as historical fiction. Reading her words is like sitting by the warmth of a heath sipping an exceptional vintage, smooth all the way down. In her romantic Asian atmosphere, a remade world of East and Middle East, you can taste the air, feel the ruggedness of majestic mountains, the the sough of the wind and sun on your back while your eyes are drinking in the amazing colors of her world.
And her characters are cats! Not just any old cats, but lions and tigers, panthers and cheetahs, a host of every wild cat there is and, lest we forget, a snow leopard. Prideful all with human attributes so uncanny that you forget that you are reading about felines instead of those around you.
She is just an amazing writer. It is the way of things.

Wow was I surprised. This is a wonderful blend of history, fantasy and scifi. I have already bought the 2nd one and am looking forward to reading it immensely.
I enjoyed this book and I'd recommend it if you can stick with it.
