A leg is shattered, a summer is ruined, and the troubled life of Billy Brahm goes from bad...to cursed. When the mysterious cat appears at his bedside, Billy is haunted by strange and prophetic dreams -- the creatures in them speak of Watchers, and Shadows, and the Enemy that Awakens. Does this impossible realm hold the key to healing the broken boy? Is the golden-eyed cat there to help him...or to make the nightmares come true? Too frightened to share the truth with his strict adoptive parents, Billy realizes that the only ones he can turn to are the local vet's daughter, the town's 'crazy cat lady'... And a mystical TIGER, beckoning from his dreams! (includes 20 stunning pen-and-ink illustrations by COLIN MOORE, along with an exclusive BOOK 2 Preview!)

About the Author

BROOKE BURGESS was born in a tiny town on the eastern coast of Canada. After a youth filled with comic books, animation, and video games, he went on to receive acclaim for writing, producing, and contributing to groundbreaking interactive and multi-platform story projects.

Cats had a presence in his home from the very beginning, quickly becoming his siblings, friends, and (benevolent) masters, and playing a role in many of his future works. Similarly, an old graveyard on a nearby hill was a real (and beautiful) thing in Brooke's youth, which probably influenced his love of scary stories.

Brooke has written for videogames, animation, comic books, and film. He loves mythology, travel, really good TV, and frozen yogurt.

Many of the events in his work (dream sequences included) actually happened.

THE CAT'S MAW is Brooke's first novel.
