Fifteen years ago, a young author surprised and enchanted readers with his first novel—the story of Fritti Tailchaser, a courageous tom cat in a world of whiskery heroes and villains, of feline gods and strange, furless creatures called M'an.
The book was Tailchaser's Song, the author was Tad Williams.The legend was born.
Fritti Tailchaser a young ginger tom not yet a full grown hunter, is the main catamong a host of appropriately named feline peersin this extravagantly detailed fantasy. When his best friend, Hushpad, vanishes, Fritti embarks on a quest to find her, and so enters the list of jousters against the evils of the world. His many trials and adventures bring him into contact with a veritable galaxy of cats, who speak a language for which a glossary is provided. This feline epic culminates in a decisive battle with an evil cat god. Creating as fully realized a habitat as that of Watership Down and other imaginative animal communities, California radio personality Williams's first novel should engage the fancy of cat lovers.

If you love just a book full of great imagination or fantasy I definitely recommend this book!
The book creates a world in a brighter light than our own. The writing Is beautifully and intelligently written with the slight feel of a fairy tale. This book could be considered the Tolkien of animal fantasy novels. Read it if you don't believe me.
A Fine Dancing Song
An enjoyable tale of feline adventure. It is well written and the pace is even. I would have given it more stars but it was a predictable story that seemed to pull most of it's imagination from Tolkien. Nevertheless I will recommend to my friends.
