Synopsis

Imagine a city. A place where respectable men and women rub shoulders with thieves and madmen. A place where two runaway children can easily be lost among the smoke and grime.

Reviews

'This novel deserves praise and prizes ... powerful stuff and as much a Watership Down for our time as an alternative to the popular Redwall series ... Bravo!'
The Times

'Skilful plotting, brisk narrative and sharply drawn characters put us firmly on the side of the ratpack and its gripping tale of apocalypse and triumph'
Daily Mail

'Inspired. A much needed bit of rodent PR'
The Sunday Herald

'a thoughtful, pacey adventure with a knack for conveying a rat's-eye-view'
SFX

'The much maligned rat emerges as an intelligent and sensitive creature in this exciting novel'
Independent
