The story picks up four weeks after the Familiars leaves off. The Loyals and the Familiars are now being educated in magical defensive arts when there is a flash of green light disenchanting the human Loyals who lose their abilities to cast spells and which leaves the animals as the only magical creatures. As part of a prediction that the animal will now rule, the Familiars must now race to save the humans against the evil intentions of the queen's familiar, Paksahara who has tried to overthrow her in her quest to dominate the humans. The go on a quest to find The Crown of the Snow Leopard and Aldwyn finds his fathers footsteps which they follow. This leaves the Loyals behind fighting for their lives with hand to hand combat.

There is a lot of action in this follow up to The Familiars and we find the threesome matching wits and talents against a series of evil creatures such as goblins, a creature that can turn you to crystal by the touch of his tail and Aldwyn's uncle, who clearly is on another path in this quest. When Malvern, Aldwyn's uncle, escapes, there is a big opening for another one in this series and I can't wait to read what happens next. This story will appeal to kids of all ages and especially those a bit too young for Harry Potter. If you enjoyed the Spiderwick Chronicles, you will love this one. I also just read that a move of the first book is going to be made.

    Four

    I am active. I simply have a life that interferes, and time difference gets in the way as well. We are not always on at the same time. Redpaw, you should learn to collect all the facts before you judge. Be considerate.<p>
    On another note, l see that you chose to ignore my post telling you to go to 'tkam' result one to train. It was advice to me to get a private training spot and to have an ongoing training session there.

    Too violent for the age group recommended, like 8 year olds. Too

    Too violent for the age group recommended, like 8 year olds. Too graphically violent. Otherwise is a creative story.
    Ever since Harry Potter people keep shoving violence at kids. Read your kid's books before they do or to them or with them.

    I have not read this yet, but it looks like a lot of fun. I would suggest the Varjak Paw series and the Warriors series. They are both about cats. I'm in high school and I love both still!
