In the sleepy town of Appleton, a young loner follows a stray cat onto the road and is struck by a car. A leg is shattered, a summer is ruined, and the troubled life of Billy Brahm goes from bad...to cursed.
When the mysterious cat appears at his bedside, Billy is haunted by strange and prophetic dreams -- the creatures in them speak of Watchers, and Shadows, and the Enemy that Awakens. Does this impossible realm hold the key to healing the broken boy? Is the golden-eyed cat there to help him...or to make the nightmares come true?
Too frightened to share the truth with his strict adoptive parents, Billy realizes that the only ones he can turn to are the local vet’s daughter, the town's 'crazy cat lady'...
...and a mystical tiger, beckoning from his dreams.

Award-winning storyteller BROOKE BURGESS (Broken Saints) makes a haunting, touching, and inspired children's fiction debut with The Cat's Maw, the first volume in his new mystery/fantasy saga for brave young readers.
A moving, gripping, and quietly powerful tale awaits, with countless rewards for those who crave a creepy adventure, for fans of smart mysteries and contemporary fantasy...and, of course, for cat lovers of all ages!
BROOKE BURGESS was born in a tiny town on the eastern coast of Canada. He's an award-winning storyteller in videogames, interactive fiction, animation, and comic books. Cats had a presence in his home from the very beginning. They became his siblings, friends, and (benevolent) masters. An old graveyard on a nearby hill was a real (and beautiful) thing. This probably influenced his love of (somewhat) scary stories. Brooke loves mythology, travel, really good TV, and frozen yogurt. Many of the things in this book (dreams included) actually happened.
THE CAT'S MAW is Brooke’s first novel.
and many more never-before-told stories!
