With the Earth laid bare by environmental disaster, and mankind hell-bent on their extermination, there is only one place for rats to go. The g-force almost crushes his tiny body as the massive intergalactic ship blasts off into the cold darkness of space. Leaving behind all that is familiar, and catapulted into an unknown future, Uphrasia is destined to face the greatest perils of his short life. Let the Frontier Rats take you on an intergalactic adventure into a universe of perilous new worlds, strange life forms, killer cybermoggies, giant megoroslugs and hostile aliens, where only the bravest of rats can survive. Will Uphrasia be able to discard his self-serving rat ways and make the ultimate sacrifice saving his arch enemies the humans? Or will his bitter hatred for them lead to the extinction of his kind? Quest for Ratopia is the first book in the Frontier Rats super-fast paced sci-fi adventure series.

Introduction

After the great global environmental disaster planet Earth was thrown into a mini ice age. Only the hardiest creatures survived. The rats who did survive remember the details only too well. Another terrible bit of history that the humans brought about.

Grumthorpe city is surrounded by barren wastelands with the threat of death at every turn. Rats and humans compete for food or space and this presents the humans with a big problem. Typically, they opt for their usual solution: extermination!

The rats are left with only one escape, to stow away aboard a spaceship bound for a distant galaxy in the hope of finding safe refuge on an alien planet. When every enemy is larger than you, ferocious aliens, killer cyborg cats, mad scientists and a hateful human crew you have to be smart to survive. But will their self-serving rat ways bring about their own extinction?
