The Twyning Summary

The Twyning by Terence Blacker

Imagine a city. A place where respectable men and women rub shoulders with thieves and madmen. A place where two runaway children can easily be lost among the smoke and grime.

But beneath this city there is another world. A world of Courts and Warriors, where the rat Kingdom is ruled by the great King Tzuriel.

This world is about to end. And it all starts with a young ratling called Efren...

The Twyning Reviews

'This novel deserves praise and prizes ... powerful stuff and as much a Watership Down for our time as an alternative to the popular Redwall series ... Bravo!' * The Times *
'Skilful plotting, brisk narrative and sharply drawn characters put us firmly on the side of the ratpack and its gripping tale of apocalypse and triumph' * Daily Mail *
'Inspired. A much needed bit of rodent PR' * The Sunday Herald *
'a thoughtful, pacey adventure with a knack for conveying a rat's-eye-view' * SFX *
'The much maligned rat emerges as an intelligent and sensitive creature in this exciting novel' * Independent *
