Description-
  • Every mouse knows: Beware the Grill.

    On the other side of the Grill lie the sewers, where bloodthirsty gangs of rats roam the tunnels. It is in the depths of this blackness that the mysterious god Jupiter has his lair.

    But one curious mouse can't resist the perilous world beyond the Grill, and soon no mouse can ignore its dangers any longer. Before the alter of Jupiter himself, a small band of mice must face evil at its strongest, or the entire city of London could be destroyed.

About the Author-
  • Robin Jarvis' first book, The Dark Portal, was short-listed for the 1989 Smarties Book Prize in England, followed by two more titles in the series: The Crystal Prison and The Final Reckoning. Mr. Jarvis lives in London.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Imparting life to talking mice, rats, bats, and cats would present a challenge to any narrator, but Roe Kendall manages the job with skill and imagination. A group of mice lives in an abandoned house, where they create a comfortable community for themselves, staying purposefully away from "The Grille," which leads to the sewers, the land of their enemies, the rats. All is well until Albert Brown wanders through the sewer grille, and his children and friends are compelled to follow, despite dire warnings about the kingdom below. Bats in the attic offer fortune-telling services, and a ship mouse joins the search for the missing neighbors. Roe Kendall gives each creature a distinctive voice. Her performance facilitates the story's required suspension of disbelief. R.P.L. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine
