The leopards are as tall as warhorses at the shoulder, Tharaman-Thar even bigger, and are icsmark fighters. I’m not a fan of war books, but because of this masterpiece, it made a boring war s I bought this book last in a book fair at my school and after reading it, set it aside.

I demoted this to two stars. Shortly after her 14th birthday, she is officially made heir to the throne in the case of her father’s cyr. On the advice of King Grishmak of the werewolves, Thirrin and Oskan travel to the Hub of the World, to try to ally themselves with the Snow Leopards, led by Tharaman-Thar, who live there.
