In this futuristic fantasy, the rats led by Rule, their commander, live underground in the space between the earth's surface and the fiery pits of hell below. Although the human race, together with ninety percent of all other creatures destroyed by a biologically enhanced bubonic disease - have been extinct for centuries, the fight between good and evil continues. The surface alliance, led by the cats, must exterminate the rats before they succeed in their quest for global domination. This is a ...more

I was given this book in return for an honest review. This is a straight up Sci-fi book. I was a little out of my element with the book as I haven't read anything quite like it. Humans and most other living creatures have been wiped off the planet by a plague initiated by inteligent rats. Left to fight the evil rats are the cats, crows, praying mantisis,turtles, snails, scorpions, spiders, leeches, blackbirds, and a few others. Led by Muin the spider and the cat she raised, Jack, they are also a ...more

OK, erm, I don’t really know what to say about this little story. When I first started reading it I thought “eh, what the... what am I reading here?” but I was so... weirded out, that I had to carry on.

This is definitely different and most certainly original. I’m not telling anything about the storyline, other than this, I don’t think I will ever look at a spider the same way again! (and that’s a really good thing.) I want my very own Muin! And, if you have a love of cats, you will adore this b

What do spiders, scorpions, cats and crows have in common? A desire to eliminate their enemy, the evil rat hordes which fester away below Earth's ruined surface.
This is a fast paced book, full of action so pay attention. I thought the praying mantises were a lovely touch as were the snail and the turtle. This extremely creative book was inspired by the author's own cat - Jack, who is the hero of this story and leads the allies in their fight against evil.

10*s. I absolutely love it when authors write about animals and when the animals talk to each other. This author however, made it a war between animals. This was a marvelously intriguing and a fun and very enjoyable story to read. This book is one to remember and read over and over again!! I enjoyed this story from beginning to end!! It's a MUST read for animal lovers everywhere!! Thank you, Joseph Beekman, for this memorable story!! GO CATS!!!
