Then he grows a tail in his sleep and has to travel to a realm called Between to learn how to use the magic now running through his veins.

Overview

Existence is a Balance. Multiple universes and myriads of worlds exist in their own time and space and through each of them threads magic. Seven great Spirits guard the Balance against the forces of evil and chaos. It is time for them to choose new Questors to wield their power and be their mortal advocates.

Charlie Waterman is eighteen and until he is assaulted by a cat figurine and wakes up with a tail, he is boringly normal. Apparently he is supposed to be the Questor of the Cat Spirit, but no one bothered to ask him if he wanted to be. It’s not the kind of thing that comes up when you’re taking your A Levels at a grammar school in Kent. When destiny catches up with him he’s two years late and past some mysterious threshold. Eighteen isn’t really old, unless you’re dealing with magic for the first time.

On meeting Akari, the man who claims to be his mentor, he is introduced to Between, a magical realm that exists outside normal time and space. Here he is supposed to learn how to fulfill his destiny. Accompanying Akari to Between to explore his new powers, he meets his fellow Questors: dragon; wolf; horse; spider; hawk; dolphin. They all seem to know what they’re doing, but, fighting to maintain control, Charlie’s causing earthquakes and accidentally turning into a cat while asleep, which is plain embarrassing.

Five sixteen year olds, a young, antisocial vampire and Charlie stand between the Balance and chaos. Nothing on Earth could have prepared Charlie for his destiny and in choosing him, he is sure the Spirits have to be insane.

Cat’s Call is the first exciting novel in The Chronicles of Charlie Waterman and is offered at a bargain price for all new readers of the series.
