Young rat Gabble is always being dragged into trouble by his brother Ash. But this time it's bad. Really bad. Gabble finds himself drawn into a dangerous adventure, from which he and his brother cannot return unchanged.


  • A thrilling adventure from Tom Moorhouse.
  • Exciting, adventurous, pacy story with great characters
  • Conjures up a powerful, believable, yet slightly alien, world belonging to the rats - running just alongside and at the periphery of our own world
  • Brilliant writing from a storyteller with a fast-growing reputation
  • Stand-alone story, but for fans of The River Singers and The Rising, there is the extra dimension that this is the story of the young Fodur the rat from those stories.
