AUSTRALIAN. Tessa has finally found Cat Connolly, only to discover she never wanted to be found. Cat is a Thyla now. She lives with Tessa's clan. Tessa was the one who turned her. And Cat doesn't want to go back. In the Thyla clan, Cat finally feels accepted, in a way that she never did in the human world. She doesn't want to return to a place where she was an outcast and a freak. But all is not well among the Thylas. The new treaty with the Sarcos is causing tension. Cat's friend, Delphi, is adding fuel to the fire with her suspicion that the Diemens may not be the true enemy. More bodies are being discovered. And Cat has made a discovery herself: a discovery about Tessa that threatens to tear the Thyla clan apart. Then, into Cat's life wanders a Vulpi - another type of shapeshifter - and this meeting changes everything for Cat as she finds out more about shapeshifters and Diemens, and about her own heart. Ages 9+.
