A magical partnership between a cat and a boy. A mysterious plot years in the making. Will they uncover the truth before it's too late?
Toby is a young tom with big dreams. He wants to be just like his father, who had a distinguished career serving the High Council until his disappearance. First things first, Toby must become an apprentice cat and study magic with other magical cats and mages.
Accepted into the King's Master School of Mages, he's partnered with Lorn Ribaldy, the human nephew of a notorious traitor. Before long, Toby and Lorn learn that they may soon lose their places in the school and society because of their association with Lorn's uncle. Their only hope is to find the secret to Toby's father's disappearance.
When the puzzle pieces start to fit together, they learn that a much greater danger is looming. Can they catch the evil mastermind at work -- and keep up with their homework -- before all of humanity is destroyed?
