The mice and rats of Brystal cannot escape their destinies.
A secret will be revealed…
A prophecy will be fulfilled…
And the peace will come to an end.
AS DARKNESS DESCENDS, HEROES ARE BORN
Treachery is everywhere in Brystal
The mice of Windelwood have led a peaceful existence for twelve years thanks to the Korn Truce, which ended the dreadful war between mice and rats. But it is well known that rats can never be trusted…
In the desolate rat territory of Northrack, Lord Elnack vows to bring his empire back to the glory they once knew. He enlists the mighty warrior Otak to lead the vicious battle to conquer the mousefishing village of Copper Lake—even if it means breaking the Korn Truce.
After a surprise assault from the rat's Citadel Legion, young cousins Crycket and Sylan must quickly train for battle against enemies they never dreamed they'd encounter—evil frogs, an ancient snake with powers beyond imagination, and perhaps even each other. Neither of them knows the terrible secret that will change the course of history…yet.
Greg Hildebrandt Jr. has created an astonishing world in which mice travel on the backs of roosters, frogs are skilled warriors, and rats struggle for ultimate power. With extraordinary illustrations from Alex Horley and Dean Robinson, this is a journey unlike any other.
