RatgirlTourBanner1Welcome to my tour stop and review for Ratgirl: Song of The Viper.

RatgirlSynopsis (Cover links to Goodreads):

Sixteen-year-old streetwise orphan, Jax Stone is an expert at surviving in a dangerous city, where rats rival the homeless for food and shelter, but she’s an amateur at fighting the immoral mayor when he kidnaps her little brother. Desperation demands she quickly master the role of courageous opponent. She uses her hypnotic singing voice to lead rats to their death, and all the children to safety, in a dying city cursed by the deadly sun.

My Rating: 4 Bookworms

My Review:

The world is not as we know it. As in any dystopian story things have gone awry and people pretty much have to fight to stay alive. This is no different. Jax is a street smart girl that knows what to do in order to keep her and her little brother alive. Every day is a fight. A fight against the rats that will steal your food, and the sun – that will steal your life.

This was a brilliantly described story in a setting that is quite easily believable. Not only do the inhabitants of this new world have to fight against the deadly sun, lack of food and the horrible guards, but there also seems to be a new element to the world. A supernatural one that none of them foresaw.

I loved the setting, the characters, the story line, the mean mayor, the super hot hotty and the fact that our MC has a hypnotic voice. A new play on the ages old fairy tale of the piper. I loved it.
