The Prince of Cats

by Quill

Original COMPLETED Action Adventure Fantasy Historical Anti-Hero Lead High Fantasy Male Lead Secret Identity
Warning This fiction contains:
  • Profanity

To stay alive, Jawad must succeed where all others have failed: he must catch the Prince of Cats. More legend than man, the Prince is draped in rumours. He can steal the silver teeth from your mouth in the blink of a smile. He is a ghost to walls and vaults, he laughs at locks, and Jawad must capture him before powerful people lose their patience and send the young rogue to the scaffold.

Ever the opportunist, Jawad begins his hunt while carrying out his own schemes. He pits the factions of the city against each other, lining his own pockets in the process and using the Prince as a scapegoat. This is made easy as nobody knows when or where the Prince will strike, or even why.

As plots collide, Jawad finds himself pressured from all sides. Aristocrats, cutthroats, and the Prince himself is breathing down his neck. Unless Jawad wants a knife in his back or an appointment with the executioner, he must answer three questions: Who is the Prince of Cats, what is his true purpose, and how can he be stopped?

The Prince of Cats is set in the same world as my other fiction, The Eagle's Flight, but the two stories are not connected. It updates every second Wednesday; the story has 23 chapters in total. Information and a map of the city can be found here.

Quill's mastery shows again. Absolutely brilliant storytelling. His writing flows like warm butter and the "pages" turn themselves.

Interesting and deep characters, a plot that keeps you on your toes and a style that soothes your soul after reading so many trashy stories. I'm not a man of impeccable grammar, but even under torture, I wouldn't find more than a handful of faults.

It's a great read and I give it my highest recommendation. It's sad to see it remain in the shadows of RR.

Interesting and unique characters, solid storytelling and a world that draws the readers in, even those who haven't read The Eagle's Flight. (Sacrilege if you ask me.) Even though reviewing a story with only 3 chapters out is not always advisable, The prince of cats is worth following and the author has yet to disappoint. I shall update to an advanced review once more chapters are out. 

Quill's mastery of the art is fascinating, and I can't wait to see where he will take us next.

Without spoiling much! Jawad is a thief, burglar, pickpocket. Your average everyday criminal with skills. He was caught and imprisoned in one of the worst prisons in the city. 

He gets offered a deal. Either he helps find the notorious thief, The Prince of Cats, or end his days under the creative hands of his torturers.

Style 5/5

the story is set in a medieval fertile crescent arabian theme. A new and refreshing, and surprisingly accurate outtake on the historical equivalent. The story comes to life with the descriptions and there are no wasted words. 

Story 5/5

A story worth every second you spend reading it, the intrigue of the story alone is enough to real you in. Who is the prince of cats? how will jawad find him? And many more questions. I literally cannot think of words to give the praise that this story deserves. I hesitate to call it a hidden gem, but if I had to pick such a story, it is this.

Grammar 5/5

Highly Professional. There is nothing more to be said.

Characters 5/5

The characters show a range of emotions and personality rarely seen on works that are as hidden as this. From the random thugs, to the crazy scientists, every character is beaming with life and intrigue, and they all play a part in this amazing machine.
