A thrillingly original story of the adventures of a small band of feral cats in Delhi who communicate by whisker mind-link and face an unprecedented threat to their tribe's survival; for listeners of Life of Pi and Philip Pullman. In the labyrinthine alleys and ruins of Nizamuddin, an old neighbourhood in Delhi, India, lives a small band of cats.
Prowling, hunting and fighting amidst the crumbling ruins of one of Delhi's oldest neighbourhoods are the proud Wildings. These feral cats fear no one, go where they want and do as they please. Battle-scarred tomcats, fierce warrior queens, the Wildings have ruled over Nizamuddin for centuries. Now there is a new addition to the clan: a pampered house cat with strange powers that could turn their world on its head. And something is stirring in the old Shuttered House - something dark and cruel and dangerous.
