AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The second instalment in James Moloney's compelling Doomsday Rats series takes up the story exactly where Book One left off ... In a futuristic city ruled by an evil scientific genius, the resistance group of children known as the Doomsday Rats might be the only hope of saving mankind. Up until now their greatest advantage has been that no-one knows they live in the underground tunnels - but three of them have just been forced to reveal the secret. Now the rats are fighting for their lives, as they are tracked through the tunnels by the hideous Gadges - the city's security force - using a strange creature with the hearing of a bat and the sight of a vulture. Yet maybe this creature isn't on the Gadges' side after al ... There's worse to come, as the Rats must face the terrifying Firedrake - and a robotic scorpion that fires missiles from its tail. But when the Gadges decide to flood the tunnel system, how many of the Rats will survive?' (Publication summary)
