Clan Ground

A prehistoric tribe of wild cats learns the power of fire in this “page-turner full of suspense and action” from the PEN Award–winning author (Booklist). With her mastery over fire—known as “the Red Tongue”—Ratha now leads the Named, a clan of sentient, prehistoric big cats with their own language, traditions, and law. But her control becomes threatened with the arrival of an outsider. An Un-Named stranger with orange eyes arrives, bringing political savvy and a desire to use “the Red Tongue” for his own purposes. As the clan begins to worship the Red Tongue, they see their territory expand, but at what cost? The Red Tongue is an unthinking master of great force, able to destroy those who fail to reign in its power. Ratha may have the solution, but does she truly desire the responsibility of ruling her clan and the Red Tongue? Do the Named have a future without her? Author Clare Bell returns with Clan Ground, the second book of the Named series. Readers who fell in love with the noble cats and suspense of the first book will love this captivating tale that grabs you from the very first page.
