Year of the Rat (Mark of the Cat #2) - Andre Norton

In Year of the Rat, Andre's never before published sequel to The Mark of the Cat, we find the natural water sources of the five queendoms of the Outer Region drying up. Hynkkel, not fully recovered from his previous trials, must now find a way to stop this loss and recover the missing water. For in a desert climate, water is the key of life. To do so he must first find out who, or what, is causing the water loss and where it is going.

When he and Murri, his sandcat, set out on their journey they make another, even more startling, discovery. A being of ancient evil has returned and along with it has brought the desert rats, hoards and hoards of deadly desert rats, bent on one thing - to destroy the queendoms one by one.

Can Hynkkel both find the missing water and stop the rats before all succumb to The Year of the Rat?
