(From the publisher):
There is a door in an artist's garden - an elaborate carved passageway into a realm ruled by a cruel enslaver, a dark sorceress queen. There entities strange and wondrous roam the Netherworld – yet none as astonishing as the shape–shifting Catswold.
A man beset by tragedy, painter Braden West is intrigued by the calico cat who has charmed her way into his studio. But his "guest" is more than she seems. In human form, Melissa once inhabited two worlds. And it is her destiny to return to a mystic realm of wonder and terror, to do battle for her people's liberation and the crown that is rightfully hers. Braden's very existence will be radically altered by this remarkable, mysterious creature - as he follows Melissa from the Hell Pit into the dread perils of an evil court, thrust into the heart of a magical conflict with more at stake than he could possibly have imagined.
