    One thought on “Ratpaths”

    1. This is a wonderful story to lose yourself in a fantasy world with a gritty Oliver Twistish feeling.It is written beautifully and really conjures the images of the places and scenery in the readers mind I felt I was there and now I remember the story as if I d seen a film This is a credit to the author, as she has the balance of everything perfect Although I got to the end of the story and was satisfied with the conclusion, I sense there is to come This would make a great series and I hope anot [...]

    2. I picked this up and begrudged every minute I couldn t be with it The characters grow and develop with the story bringing surprises with every turn of the page From humble beginnings to a climax that turns every anticipation on its head this book has it all and I would unhesitatingly reccommend this book to everyone who loves adventure, mischief, humor and the thrill of meeting a plot being unfurled before your very eyes

    3. I received a free copy of this book in return for a fair and honest review.Ratpaths is a magic free young adult fantasy story about loyalty, freedom and dynasty Nivvo, a young thief, discovers the long dead heir to the throne is actually alive and needs rescuing from some sea fairing kidnappers The narration moves between Nivvo s quest to save and reinstate the heir, and the story of his own early life Nivvo frees Vilores from his captors and leads him to a fragile kind of safety He uses his ski [...]

    4. When young Nivvo is hired to do what he does best steal a valuable item he happens to overhear a very important conversation This leads him to a choice, one that could change the politics of his home as well as his own life forever Risking everything, he embarks on a mission to replace the ruler and put another man in his place.Nivvo s story is an interesting one His background is told in a series of flashbacks taking place between the present action of the main plot His father or the man he bel [...]

    5. I m not crazy about the cover, but I am crazy about the book Ratpaths is a fiction fantasy novel that takes it s cues from a Renaissance Europe The city state Istonnia has been in turmoil since Ravires murdered his brother and nephew nearly fourteen years earlier With clear succession to the throne, Ravires became a tyrant, using violence to maintain control of the city.Nivvo, a young thief, overhears a conversation while running an errand for a dear friend Ravires had left his work incomplete s [...]

    6. Amazing This is the word that comes to my mind when I think about this book.When I received the book I was happy because I won it and I got all giddy inside when it said that is written for me D haha for us the readers and I really appreciated this The cover was a bit strange and because I am sometimes stupid I tend to judge a book by it s cover it took me a long time to start reading it Also when I opened the book the way it was edited annoyed me You see, the alignment of the paragraphs is left [...]

    7. I absolutely loved this book The main thing about it that I loved was the fact that it is a fantasy tale, but without all the things associated normally with a fantasy tale I mean, I adore fantasy tales with elves, dragons, even magic, I absolutely thrive on them, but this book takes you on a journey that enraptures you in every second of the story without the need for those things Well it enraptured me at the very least.Nivvo is a very likeable and seemingly independent character who knows what [...]

    8. Ratpaths is the story of thief Nivvo who is living in a city ruled over by a tyrant who killed to secure his place on the throne I don t often enjoy historical fiction but I just couldn t put this book down The story was told brilliantly, with well defined characters and believable plot twists This definitely isn t your typical fantasy tale It has a gritty realism to it and some violent things happened, yet it never quite falls into the dark fantasy category and it would be suitable for young ad [...]

    9. I received a copy of this book as a prize in a drawing on a review site Based on this first book, I bought the sequel myself.The city state of Istonnia is ruled above ground by a ruthless tyrant and below ground by a crime lord Nivvo is a skilled young thief caught between them He is grateful for the crime lord s protection but wishes to maintain his independence He is a thief with honor While burgling a house, he overhears nefarious plans that lead to a daring rescue, perilous escape, unveiling [...]

    10. It becomes rather difficult to easily summarize a book as unique as this Although there are definitely elements of the book that one might find common in other literature, the whole is an entirely different beast that just begs to be read The story of Nivvo, the thief, is one that is filled with a rich background, both of a political nature as well as that of the seedy underground where he spends his time These two worlds clash greatly and Nivvo finds himself somewhere in the middle.For reasons [...]

    11. A wonderfully crafted political fantasy with strong Italian influences The premise is carefully crafted, and I really enjoyed the folkloric aspects that came through in their colloquiloisms, in particular those relating to ghosts or fire The characterisation was splendid and I found myself really drawn to Nivvo s character, along with his sister, Reka whom I hope we shall see of later I did find the flashbacks a little distracting at first not because they were not wonderfully written, but beca [...]

    12. A well written, believable fantasy adventure Ratpaths is the story of Nivvo, a thief, who lives an Artful Dodger esque life stealing to simply survive, using the ratpaths of the title to make good his escapes As a small child he has the unenviable task of providing for his destitute mother then later, his half sister The story is nicely paced, with a gradual build to Nivvo s flight back to Istonnia, and the inevitable fight to reinstate the rightful heir to power without giving too much away The [...]

    13. The first time I read this, it wasn t my favourite book and it was a couple of years before I picked it up again and gave it another go I m glad I did.I think the only way Nivvo could be described is as a cheeky rascal He s just that sort of lovable scamp, who might have a somewhat dark side to him but for the most part is honest in his own way.The city is living under the thumb of a tyrant who had Nivvo s father killed when he was but a child, and sent him to the streets The only reason he is a [...]

    14. Under the boot of the usurper and tyrant, Ravires, the city of Istonnia is a place of repression and swift violence When Nivvo, a young thief carrying out his trade, overhears a conversation between two conspirators, as they discuss the means and methods to kill the true heir to the throne, whom has been presumed dead for many years Compelled to prevent this murder, Nivvo keeps the information from the cunning head of the Rat s, Vicco Cambrosi, to whom he owes allegiance, to do what he knows is [...]

    15. This book is special to me I read it first as a beta reader, which didn t stop me from reading it again once it was published Rust creates a believable plot through the streets of Istonnia, where no detail is overlooked, and the story of Nivvo the thief is amazingly executed With a sense of adventure, a touch of suspense, and a dash of romance under a mafia esque tone, Ratpaths becomes one of my favorite books Highly recommended.

    16. An exciting Renaissance era story expertly blended with dark, mafia underpinnings The story of the charming young thief, Nivvo, is beautifully told The writing flows as lovely as poetry The story had me at the edge of my seat It s a tale loaded with humor and suspense.I will happily buy the sequel Angelika is a very talented author Highly recommended

    17. it took a couple chapters to get used to the fictional world and made up names but then couldn t put it down rewarded with fantastic characters, witty dialogue, good adventure Will be checking out book 2.

    18. This is a many layered and exciting story, with likeable characters and a subtle and original plot Brilliant I ve just bought part two
