Llorona stalks into the new surrounding, her shady pelt dull and caked with dust.

Hey...it's Shadey. I was wondering what it would be like to join an evil Clan, so l was wondering if you could explain. I think l finally understand not to take the raids personally and know that these people just want to make things more interesting. Is that right?

[ OvO Hola frands. ] <br> Falconshard was downwind, stalking silently through the forest, not yet within the Clan's territory. His muscles were smooth under his multi-toned gray coat, and his amber eyes flickered about his surroundings as he took them in, his breathing silent. He didn't feel any twinge of guilt for leaving the others- if no cat cared to prevent the place from falling, that wasn't his issue. He'd heard from some other rogue he'd met on the way here of the formation of the cat group he found himself seeking. If they were going to be legitimate, and truly what they said they were, then perhaps he'd give being in a group of cats another chance. The scent washed over him, and he recognized the fact that he was in the territory. Hm, so it /was/ real thus far. Good. He lifted his head so as it was only slightly raised above his shoulders, his intent, yet stone expression already resting on his face. He angled his ears in alertness and entered the clearing. There were indeed cats here. He watched as he slowed to a stop in their camp, observing expectantly. <br>

This is an older text with typos, but nevertheless, it is a great read. It truely makes one ask, 'Am I a manalive, or have I died long before I have died?'

The poor digitizing of this particular version makes a very bad reading experience. The story is delightful and, of course, written by a master. It is too bad that one cannot enjoy this version.

The optical scanning of this book is so defective, it is literally unreadable. I don't think there are two uncorrupted sentences in a row. If the other 500,000 books from Google Books are this defective, I can't even guess why B&N even bothered.
