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.
This is a freaky book, particularly as there are a lot of rats around us. It is full of suspense and at times can be unsettling. There is also some blood and gore.
