Tailchaser's SongTad Williams
fantasy, young adult
Locus Award nominee 1986.
Meet Fritti Tailchaser, a ginger tom of rare courage and curiousity, a born survivor in a world of heroes and villains...
"The hour of Unfolding Dark had begun, and the rooftop where Tailchaser lay was smothered in shadow. He was deep in a dream of leaping and flying when he felt and unusual tingling in his whiskers. Fritti Tailchaser, hunterchild of the Folk, came suddenly awake and sniffed the air. Ears pricked and whiskers flared straight, he sifted the evening breeze. Nothing unusual. Then what had awakened him? Pondering, he splayed his claws and began a spine-limbering stretch that finally ended at the tip of his reddish tail."
And join him on a fantastic quest – all the way to cat hell and beyond.
