2nd Edition, originally published with the title "Cat's Eyes". This is the first book in The Land of Miu series.

Twelve year old Kate Dawson is unhappy at home. Her widowed mother has remarried and Kate has a stepfather and a six year old half-sister, Emma, who is nothing but a pest. She knows the resentment she feels towards Emma and her stepfather is making her mum unhappy, but Kate is confused by the deep feelings of guilt and jealousy that plague her.

One morning, Emma disappears down a mystical looking well. Irritated but worried, Kate follows and the two girls are thrust into the tunnels of Miu, an unknown place built within the lava tunnels of an extinct volcano. They meet a young Miuan princess and her guard, who are on the run, and the girls are instantly swept into a danger that will test their skills, their friendship and their love.

The idea for Cat's Eyes originated from a simple dream. One sunny morning, a little girl sat on top of a overhanging rock listening to her two cats talking about another land and the danger they were in. From that one scene The Land of Miu was created. The two main Miuan characters were inspired by my two kittens, Sophie and Jasper. Sophie has mysterious Cat's Eyes (which is where the title came from) and acts like a princess and Jasper isn't as brave as he'd like us to believe.
