The Catmage Chronicles
It's been hundreds of years since the Darkness last surfaced, a grim time when both humans and Catmages lost their lives. But now the Wild Ones work with humans again, and thirteen-year-old Andy Cohen gets the surprise of his life when a talking cat shows up in his front yard. Goldeneyes, a powerful Catmage, needs Andy’s help. In the exciting first installment of this new series, Meryl Yourish takes the reader into a world of magical cats, dark powers, and a boy who finds himself entangled in their war.

Yeah, sure, okay: Iran says that it chased half a dozen foreign jets out of its airspace during air defense drills. Also, sixteen UFOs, forty-five Zionist infiltrators, and Santa Claus on an early test run of the new RoboRudolph. Oh, … Continue reading
