Synopsis

It was only when the bones of the first devoured victims were discovered that the true nature and power of these swarming black creatures with their razor sharp teeth and the taste for human blood began to be realised by a panic-stricken city. For millions of years man and rats had been natural enemies. But now for the first time – suddenly, shockingly, horribly – the balance of power had shifted… ‘The effectiveness of the gruesome set pieces and brilliant finale are all its own.’ Sunday Times.

    Assassin Animals

    Maybe I've seen too many 'Assassin Animals' B-movies in my life, making hard for me to enjoy these kind of plots, especially since more or less they all beginf and end the same way. Plus, I actually like rats. The characters are not bad, though and the book makes an interesting read overall.

    Rats

    I was introduced to James Herbert through a friend recommending his work, as an avid Steven King fan I wasn't disappointed. Really cleverly thought out with twists and turns at every chapter. I'm now going to read lair, who knows James Herbert might have gained a new fan.

    Chilling and vivid

    A chilling book about mutant rats. The backstories on some of their victims makes it especially easy to sympathise with them, getting to know them a bit, before they are brutally killed and devoured by giant rats.

    I blame The Rats

    When I first read The Rats, I was enthralled and had to read the sequels Domain and Lair and didn't want it to stop. Ever since then I have continued to read James Herbert books and never felt let down. The Rats trilogy, if you can call it that, remains my favourite trilogy to date. Closely followed by the David Ash books. RIP James Herbert you will be sadly missed.
