The third and final book in the trilogy of the Deptford mice, the book continues a few months after Audery Scuttle (nee Brown) returns back from the country, leaving her husband of convienniance behind.
However after the final events on the Crystal Prison the reader already knows that a nightmare is about to happen with the reappearence of few old nemeis' who have returned bigger and badder than before. As a new war breaks out between the mice and rats all hope seems lost for the mice and it is up to Audery and her friends to try and survive rather than win.
The final book in the series is probably the darkest yet in the trilogy and if you have read the first two books you'll understand that this series is pretty bleak most of the time. Robin Jarvis again shocks the reader by killing off a number of popular characters prompting a poignant moment for Audery that is almost heart breaking. Due to this again I will state like in my previous review for the Crystal Prison that this is for 8 year olds and over as some of the scenes and issues are too dark for younger readers.
The end of a great trilogy, if a little sad, read it!
