In this heart-stopping sequel to The Tygrine Cat, Mati must pass through three gates of the feline spirit realm and confront his enemies. The first gate takes him to a place of chaos and flame; the second to the ancient land of his ancestors; the last to the world of memory, where his fallen friends remain. Can cruelty and despair crush Mati¿s will or is there an even greater power at work?
Inbali Iserles was educated at Sussex and Cambridge Universities and works as a lawyer in the City of London. She lives in Islington with four degus - exotic rodents rescued from the RSPCA. In her spare time she's a committed globetrotter, a passion that has taken her to the depths of the Amazon Rainforest and the bubbling geysers of Iceland.
"One of The Independent's 50 books every child should read...The Tygrine Cat (and The Tygrine Cat on the Run) by Inbali Iserles... If your parents keep going on at you to read Tarka the Otter, The Sheep-Pig and other animal fantasies, do - they're great books - also try Iserles' stories about a cat seeking his destiny." Katy Guest, The Independent on Sunday
