This is a very active story with lots of characters. It's a good read.
BooksGoSocial and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you). It has already been published and you can get a copy now.
The story starts with the cat being stolen. The King and his men go one way and the animals go in another. There is a lot of danger. The animals talk, and the poor bird almost kills himself trying to keep everyone safe.
The King takes a prisoner with him to rescue the cat. When the prisoner gets loose, he tries to kill the King. That's not the King's only problem. There are a bunch of witches that would like to kill him, too.
There are fights, close calls and you aren't sure who is going to win. Reading this is not boring.
