On a sunlit headland above the ancient castle at Tintagel, the King and Queen of Cats are raising their beautiful kittens. But which of their three offspring is the famed Golden Cat? And how to tell, when two of them disappear suddenly? Tag, new caretaker of the wild roads, must find them.

Have you ever wondered what your cats get up to when they go out at night? Do they just sit in the garden and watch the world go by, or do they travel into the night on wild adventures that take them to faraway places that human eyes have never seen?
The Golden Cat is a follow up to the highly successful The Wild Road and is the fairytale story of Tag the tabby cat, who after the death of his mentor Majicou inherits the task of the caretaker of the wild roads. When two of the King and Queen's kittens goes missing, Tag is asked to find them. One of the three kittens is the famous Golden Cat, but which one is it? Tag soon finds himself on yet another perilous journey across the wild roads with Leonora the third kitten in tow.
It's obvious that King has a great love for the feline species, which shines out with great warmth from her writing. Observational detail rubs shoulders with moments of comedy strong enough to evoke a reaction from the hardest of hearts and elements of high drama as King delves into the darkest side of vivisection and animal cruelty. A great read in its own right and a worthy follow-up to the Wild Road. --Elly RussellReview:
"A magical tale . . . Part feline Watership Down and part highly original adventure story, it shows there's more to the fantasy genre than goblins, wizards, and improbably proportioned women."--The Daily Mirror (London) "This splendid sequel to The Wild Road features an unforgettable cast of fur and blood characters on a globe-trotting mission of rescue--and deftly establishes author Gabriel King as a new master of epic fantasy."--amazon.co.uk
