Millions of year in the future, super-evolved felines rule the Earth.  This is a classic story with an original twist.  While Leo fights over the throne with his cousin Tamir, he realizes there's something more to the world than what he was old.  The author's description of the fiery combat and breathtaking terrain makes the story fit together like a jigsaw puzzle.  I can't wait for the next book in the Pride Wars series.

As Leo ventures deep into enemy territory to find his long lost parents, he must overcome many challenges both physical and mental.  Oh, and he also has to complete the small task of stopping a demon from destroying the world.  The plot of this interesting book has so many twists and turns which made it impossible to put down.  I was surprised and pleased by the ending.  The Four Guardians is the second book in the Pride Wars series and it is even better than the first.
