In a world where magical cats work with human companions and communicate through mirrors, journeyman Toby is still looking for his father, and something strange is happening in hill country schools. Author Virginia Ripple builds some intriguing artifacts into this world, blending ancient magic with modern technology, and adding very pleasing touches of science, myth, faith and even politics. Some believe in the One. Others seek New Life. But still others, cats and people, live just for the day, ...more

This novel is aimed at the Harry Potter and Narnia crowds, although this book veers away from the Harry Potter feel. Toby's father is still missing, a character from the first novel is murdered, and there's much still wrong in the world. Other characters are introduced and have a larger role. Toby and Lorn are well paired.

There are some scary scenes for imaginative young ones. The religious aspect is still there. The editing got a bit sloppy with mixing "they're" and "their."

While I think you co

Toby the magical cat searches for his father with his human partner. There is another cat, higher up who wants him to give up the search. Toby is willing to, for the sake of his partner, but when someone dies, he needs to go ahead. A fun, light, magic story. Loved it

Toby and Lorn continue their search for answers, as journeymen - working undercover in one of the temple schools. What they unearth is disturbing but are they any closer to finding answers? Toby suffers a personal loss that makes him even more determined.

The dual society of cats and humans works surprisingly well, as does the thinly disguised message of the One. There are fewer paraphrases of biblical texts in this volume but enough to be familiar.
