    Read This Book!

    Ever since reading Tim Powers' book, The Anubis Gates, I have been waiting for Powers to write another up to the high standard he had established with that work. His intervening novels, The Stress of Her Regard, On Stranger Tides, have been, frankly, disappointing. With Last Call Powers finally meets the standard he established with the earlier book. The novel is unique, vast in scope and adventuresome. I rank it only a hair below The Anubis Gates.

    The Hidden Prophecy-Chapter One┬┐Part One

    "Please tell me the story again!" Onekit asked Bluedust, his mother. His littermates, Frostkit, Blackkit, Cinderkit, and Ravenkit, were huddling beside him, their eyes wide. Bluedust looked at her kits begging to here the story again. Swiftstripe was beside her, his gray pelt bristled in excitement on the five kits. Onekit cuddled close to his mother. "Please tell me!" He begged. 'I want to hear the story again! It's so exciting!' Onekit thought with excitement. "Fine." Bluedust flatten her ears and looked at her kits. "But this is the last time. I was telling you the story around sunhigh, and now it is almost half-way sunset. Are you all ready?" Onekit laid down on the ground. "Ready." He purred, his white fur brushing against the mossy cold ground. Frostkit imitates him. "Ready." She mewed. Ravenkit and Cinderkit sat next to each other. "Ready." They both squealed. Blackkit, the eldest of the five kits, sat alone. "Ready." He murmured. Bluedust looked at all of them then began the tale. "It was one cold night. Our former clan was take over by a mysterious cat. Starclans says the enemy was granted everything he wanted by the cold-hearted Dark Forest. Your father, Tigertail, suddenly dissappeared among the shadows with the enemy close to him. We never did found his body, but he has been gone for so many moons, we both predicted him as dead. The day of his brave heroics was the same day I had my first litter of five perfect kits. Swiftstripe was with me then, and I asked him to be my mate after you five join the life. I might even have a second litter next new-leaf. We all live in this den now, but it is perfect. There are unlimited prey around it, its cracks are perfect for storing different medicines, and its mossy ground is so comfortable. If we go back to the clan camp now, it probaly isn't there anymore. It is now the enemy's camp. It is north from here, and it isn't far away either. But I don't want any of you kits going over there. It's too dangerous for little warriors like you five." Bluedust finally finished, her thin tail swaying back and forth. Onekit looked at Bluedust, his green eyes wide in glee. 'Wow...' he thought. Swiftstripe looked at Bluedust, eyes wide. "It is almost leaf-bare, Bluedust. And it is the first leaf-bare to the kits. What if they got sick or even..." Swiftstripe dared himself not to go on, but Bluedust knows what he is saying. "They'll be fine. Leaf-bare won't be a challenge to them." Blackkit nodded. "Yeah!" Ravenkit agreed. "We're tough enough to destroy those cats!" Bluedust giggled. "It's a season, Ravenkit." She chuckled. Ravenkit flatten his ears and looked at the ground in embarrasedment. "Sorry." He whispered, his blue eyes wide. "Its alright, Ravenkit." Bluedust murmured. "Onekt made the same mistake." Onekit padded over to Ravenkit and Cinderkit and sat down next to Ravenkit. "We're like twins!" Onekt meowed. "Yeah!" Ravenkit agreed. "Exept that you have white fur and I have gray..." Swiftstripe giggled. "Come on." He beckoned the kits with his tail. "I'll show you what is outside when it is almost the last day until leaf-bare." Onekit sat up straight. "Really?" He asked. Swiftstripe nodded and padded out of the den with the kits close behind him. Authors note: Part Two will come soon. -Flamepaw, Med. Cat apprentice of Leafclan

    Fascinating story

    The characters in the story are very well developed, several very normal villians and protagonists, moving through fantastic plots in a very exciting flow. Mr. Powers has done his research. The back story on Tarot cards and the creative license on the early days of Las Vegas makes this tale oddly educational, although I'm not sure where the line between fiction and fact lies... Well done.
