Audible version. 2.5 nonsense stars.

This was mediocre. The narrator did well but the story barely kept my interest. It was a forgettable way to spend 3 +/- hours. Wouldn’t recommend.

Rats: Tori: Three Steampunk Stories is a fabulous collection of short stories from Laura Greenwood.

Each story will take on a new journey with Tori and her husbands - Archie, Baxter, Edwin and Harvey.

I throughly enjoyed this reverse harem steampunk collection, which includes Ruler of Rats (book 1), Collector of Rats (book 2) and Yuletide of Rats (book 3).

Fun Steampunk adventures

This book is all three stories in one, so I will review each individual story below.

Ruler of Rats
The series starts us off with Tori and her three husbands looking to take over the “Rats” – the people so low of class that anyone of actual class pretends that they don’t exist. They have no official status or place in society at all. But, they have their own society, of sorts, which has traditionally been organised to benefit whoever is in charge, but Tori wishes t
Brianna Belbin
This was a great collection of short, but important events throughout Tori and her four husbands lives. As Rats from the bottom of society and lower than dirt in others eyes, she strives and peruses to bring her people the equality they deserve no matter the cost or danger it puts her and her harem in. Although this series focuses mostly on their adventures and journey, we still get to see a few sweet moments of their relationship. Archie, Baxter, Edwin, and Harvey each have different talents an ...more

Rats by Laura Greenwood is a collection of the following three related novellas: Ruler of Rats, Collector of Rats, and Yuletide of Rats. These three stories are all revolving around the main character Tori, the Ruler of Rats and her four husbands: Archie, Baxter, Edwin, and Harvey. The first story revolves around her rise to power, the second the improvements she made while in power, and the third trying to solve a series of murders and get justice for the victims. The stories are somewhat futur ...more

Ruler of Rats
This is the prequel to a new series about to come out and it was the perfect way for us to get use to the world building and the characters. While short it is just enough to give us a view of some of what is to come.

Collector of Rats
This is the second book in the Rats series and we watch as Tori deals with the fact that the rats are running out of money. Tori and her husbands decide to collect on a large debt. This is a excellent short read for the lunch break

Yuletide of Rats
Aug 02, 2019 rated it really liked it
Easy read trilogy although the 3 books are short enough to really make 1 book. The introduction of a different society from other books that I have read was new but still the same societal structure as we have today, those with much and others with nothing. The books jumped through many years making the accomplishments of the group believable, but there really wasn’t a great deal of substance to the books. Each book did have a mission which added some tension to the books but on the whole the bo ...more

I would have given this more stars but it just needed something more. This is three stories set ages apart. It is supposed to be a reverse harem but aside from a few hugs and kisses we don’t see anything between the main characters. As an excellent idea it could be a great series. However as it stands it leaves a bit to be desired.

Rats: Tori: Three Steampunk Stories by Laura Greenwood is an awesome box set that I have read.

There are three stories in this collection that were each a good read but could have been a great read. Each of the stories had great story points but they just were not as well written or developed as they could have been. These were a very clean reverse harem approach as there was not alot of sexiness in the stories.

This is basically a set of Tori's three short stories where it follows her adventures with her four husbands. Their story is sweet and they have a great relationship. The stories revolve around her leading and helping her fellow Rats. They're short and can be read in a couple hours.

This book took me on a trip of twists and turns with a strong female lead and her alpha males. The characters are well developed and engaging and the storyline flowed smoothly from start to finish.

This was a set of three short story's based round the same set of characters. I enjoyed the story's but felt they weren't fully developed. Would love to see them turned into longer books!

I thought this compilation was pretty good, with 3 short stories featuring Tori and her harem of Rats. I liked the steampunk aspect of the stories, anticipated the low amount of romance/heat because of Laura's other stories, but liked the focus of each of them. I did kinda get a little discombobulated with the jumping around in the timeline so much. I wish these had been longer stories and we got to see some of the in between (like the men becoming her husbands).

Rats: Tori by Laura Greenwood is a collection of three steampunk reverse harem stories that I listened to on audio narrated by Nicole Payten-Betts.

All three stories (Ruler of Rats, Collector of Rats, and Yuletide of Rats) are based around Tori and her four husbands. They all can be read as a standalone but I loved that they were combined into one collection for audible. Each story is only 42 – 66 pages in length.

I just love Laura’s books! They always leave me begging for more! This is the fir
Steampunk-ish story that features interesting world building with a tiered class system. Heat level is low even with a reverse harem. Main character has four husbands but not all four are fully developed as characters. Class issues are handled deftly, given how short the stories are. I would have liked to see longer stories about different parts of this world.

Laura Greenwood provides a box set of three distinct reverse harem, steampunk adventures. The main characters is Tori and along with her four husbands set out to change the class system. They are Rats and start off at the very bottom of society, the starving, homeless, jobless masses. In the first book Tori must steal a special necklace to become queen. In the second book she needs to recover funds owed the Rats to ensure their progress. In the third book she sets off to stop a murderer.

This is collection of short stories featuring a steampunk retake on the Pied Piper story.

This short story collection features a steampunk setting and a reverse harem. With three stories in the collection, we get an opportunity to know the setting and the characters which is a good thing, because both are well developed and interesting in their own right. Each story serves as a standalone, but you get more out of them as a collection. Each is well written and easy to read, with plenty of twists a

I really enjoyed this collection of steampunk reverse harem short stories, the three stories together make for a good quick read. All three stories focus on Tori and her husbands - Baxter, Edwin, Archie, and Harvey.

We're taken on a new journey/adventure in each of the stories. I love the world and seeing it through the eyes of Rats, the lowest of the low in society. Yuletide of Rats is my favourite of the three stories but I liked them all.
