A YA (Young Adult) novel from the 2000s, this book is set in a medieval type era. The main character is a girl whose parents are killed (I can't remember why) and she is living with her uncle.

She finds out that he wants to use her as she can access some 5th plane or dimension and summon elementals. She has a cat that comes to visit her.


Could it be "Daughter of Storms" by Louise Cooper?

The main character is a young girl, she lives with her uncle, her parents are dead, she uses her powers to summon "elementals" from a higher plane, she has cats.

Innocent of the power she controls, 16-year-old Shar is of great value to others - who lie patiently waiting for such a soul. But as Shar begins to realize her gift, the terror begins and a deadly power is rising. Can Shar summon the elements to become the Dark Caller?

    Can you explain why you think this is the correct answer? – Shevliaskovic Oct 15 '14 at 10:33
  • Yeah. The time period is all wrong and she doesn't live with her uncle. The only things which match up are elemental magic and the existence of a cat in the book. – FuzzyBoots Oct 15 '14 at 11:49

    Just to clarify, if you post a wrong answer, but provide the items which do match (and, honestly, the ones that don't), you generally don't get voted down because you made an honest try, and it can help people narrow down the possibilities. – FuzzyBoots Oct 15 '14 at 12:03
