If you liked the "Deptford Mice" and the "Deptford Histories", this book will come as no disappointmet.
Written from the point of view of a rat, it shows what life is like on the other side of The Grille. Fleabee is a rat but unlike the others she isn't evil and doesn't want to hurt anyone. The reader can feel the tension mounting throughout the book as she has to make a deadly choice.
The story is fits perfectly into the other tales from Deptford, you may even recognaise a few old faces from other books. Though the story is often dark there is also humour and hope in a dreary sewer world.
The illustrations really bring the story to life and I hope that anyone who reads this book enjoys it as much as I did. From the first page I was hooked and the last page left me holding my breath for the next one.
This a must-read for fans of Robin Jarvis and Deptford, if you don't know the author or his books: get reading!
