The Outlaw Varjak Paw: 06/03/18

The Outlaw Varjak Paw

The Outlaw Varjak Paw by S.F. Said is the sequel to Varjak Paw. Varjak, now living on the streets with a gang comprised of stray cats and dogs has earned the ire of another cat, the leader of a rival gang.

Varjak continues to have spiritual dreams where he furthers his feline marshal arts skills. It's winter and food is scarce, so going against a rival gang that is unwilling to share what food they have is making things extra dangerous.

The first book had a weird dystopian feel with cats disappearing only to reappear as horrific feline cyborg toys. This book lacks that compelling side plot. The winter is dangerous and the rival gang is too but neither is as compelling.

Three stars
