The main problem is that the Symbari have taken over, and the painting, the Grimalkin, has been tampered with, so the cat in the painting, Catina, has come alive, and she does not know her true identity. Kya’s housekeeper’s son is missing, and Kya and her friends Sebastian and Eliza, must find him. They also must restore Catina to her original self. Sebastian discovers that he can communicate with this gargantuan cat, because his deceased father painted the Grimalkin.


 

Opinion: 

I really liked the adventurous detail in this book. The detail really helps the magic, mystery, and characters come alive in this story. I disliked the abrupt start, and having to decipher their magical language, Reesk, for every chapter name. I also disliked the confusing sadness and violence.
