RATGIRL: Song of the Viper

RATGIRL: Song of the Viper - Gayle C. Krause Review of Ratgirl

Star rating: 4 stars


Jax is the heroine of this story and I just loved her.

Ratgirl is set in a dystopia world, a world where no one goes out in the day, due to the severity of the heat. It would literally kill you. So at night time the underground city comes alive. Ratgirl reminded me of the Hunger games in ways as Jax scavenges abandoned homes for items of value, and sells them on the black market to keep her friends and family fed. Her ability to sneak around is great. For Jax is what pushes her so far is family and friends. But when Jax’s brother is taken she doesn’t crumble, she fights. But her fight gets more complicated when the magnitude of the situation is discovered and with a city infested with rats well it adds to the mix.
The idea of competing with rats for food had my skin crawling. I hate rats. Yet I was intrigued to understand what the rats had to do with anything, and then Jax sang.

This story has it all fight for survival, action and we get to meet some amazing characters. Colt being one of my favourite. :)

This story doesn’t give up for a moment and the plot was very well written. I truly enjoyed it and I would recommend Ratgirl to all lovers of stories like the Hunger Games.
