There is a door in an artist's garden: an elaborate carved passageway into a realm ruled by a dark sorceress queen. There entities strange and wondrous roam the Netherworld––yet none as astonishing as the shape–shifting Catswold...
Raised by the oldwitch Mag, Melissa discovers a perilous secret. She has more than one form––human girl and magical cat––and once inhabited two worlds. And it is her destiny to return to a mystic realm of wonder and terror, to do battle for her people's liberation and the crown that is rightfully hers.
A man beset by tragedy, painter Braden West is intrigued by the calico cat who has charmed her way into his studio. But his "guest" is more than she seems, and Braden's very existence will be radically altered as he follows Melissa from the Hell Pit into the dread perils of an evil ruling court, thrust into the heart of a magical conflict with more at stake than he could possibly have imagined.

While new father Joe Grey is overjoyed to teach his three young kittens about the world, he misses his cop work — secretly helping solve crimes alongside his human friends at Molena Point P. D. But when beautician Barbara Conley and one of her customers are found dead in the salon, Joe makes an exception, he heads for the crime scene. He has no idea that the kittens are following him, or how they will complicate the investigation.
But this is not the only danger to the kittens. A stranger is lurking around the home of Joe’s tabby lady, Dulcie, where the kittens were born. Both parents’ backs are up and their claws out, ready to protect their babies and to protect Wilma Getz, Dulcie’s human housemate.
As the death of the beautician becomes entangled with a gang of thieves working the village, Joe, Dulcie, Kit and Pan are all into the investigation; and they are led to unexpected connections, to the building of the new cat shelter and to a neighbor who becomes suddenly an unexpected part of the tangle.
Joe Grey fans will relish this latest installment following their favorite feline detective and his growing group of friends.
The fleet-footed sleuthing duo is intent upon restoringan old friend's good name. But finding the missing littlegirl who was sole witness to the crime won't be easy -- especially with a hungry cougar on the prowl, a cat-killeron the loose ... and the kittenish antics of Joe and Dulcie'splayful new "ward" causing big trouble that could takemore than nine lives to survive.
Lorsqu’il commence à écrire les Rêveries à l’automne 1776, Rousseau est un vieil homme proche de la mort, presque pauvre, célèbre dans toute l’Europe et pourtant assuré que l’espèce humaine le rejette. Il continue cependant d’écrire et les Rêveries sont à ses yeux la suite des Confessions. Mais il ne s’agit plus désormais de raconter sa vie ni de s’expliquer aux autres pour dévoiler sa vraie nature. Dans une solitude propice à l’introspection, si des souvenirs épars remontent maintenant à sa mémoire, c’est pour lui-même qu’il les consigne en même temps qu’il cherche à se mieux connaître et réfléchir plus largement sur les ressorts de notre esprit humain.
Mais ces méditations sont aussi des promenades où la rêverie devient expansion de l’être, où le contact avec la nature est source de bonheur dans la pure conscience d’exister. Une nouvelle manière d’écrire s’inaugure donc, un libre parcours sans effort que la ligne mélodieuse d’une prose souvent poétique rend admirablement sensible. Ces Rêveries que Rousseau nous laisse lorsqu’il meurt à Ermenonville en juillet 1778, il se peut ainsi qu’elles ne nous soient pas adressées : elles nous sont en tout cas destinées.
