Tailchaser's Song by Tad Williams was probably (to the best of my memory) the first time I had ever read something in the fantasy genre. It's been decades, but I always think back fondly on that book for lighting the reading spark inside of me. Tad Williams has remained one of my favorite authors to this day, but that one book about a band of adventurous cats has always stayed with me.
