Review this Book

A World Ruled by Mice


The Isle of Andronicus; mountainous and surrounded by raging seas it is, perhaps most importantly, ruled by mice.

Marcus, a timid mouse journalist, is still working his way up the pecking order and seeking the respect among contemporaries. What’s a mouse to do but volunteer for hazardous expeditions in the name of a good story? For the purpose is to learn about ‘The Origins of Mousekind’.

If he gains some mysterious new powers along the way, well, that’s just a bonus.

Delving into the life and power struggles at the newspaper, A World Ruled by Mice also examines life on the island as a whole. With parts of the island uninhabitable and undiscovered, the two main towns of Phoenix and Troy remain bitter rivals as class distinctions run rife. Underscoring it all is the ever-present question: what form of life held sway before the rodents took over?

And just how long can they remain at the top of the chain?

A World Ruled By Mice is an entertaining and easy to read, unusual book. The world is ruled by mice. A newspaper sets up an expedition to discover new things about the land they inhabit. It turns out that the expedition finds riches and other inhabitants that they thought had died out. Very engaging. I enjoyed reading it.
