The Wildings Publisher's Summary

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: Miao, the clan elder, a wise, grave Siamese; Katar, loved by his followers and feared by his enemies; Hulo, the great warrior tom; Beraal, the beautiful queen, swift and deadly when challenged; Southpaw, the kitten whose curiosity can always be counted on to get him into trouble....

Unfettered and wild, these and the other members of the tribe fear no one, go where they will, and do as they please. Until one day a terrified orange-coloured kitten with monsoon-green eyes and remarkable powers lands in their midst - the first in a series of extraordinary events that threatens to annihilate them and everything they hold dear.

The Wildings is a gorgeous evocation of Delhi, a love paean to cats and a rich, often savage tale of survival and conquering one's fears.

    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.
