"Book one of the Deptford Mice Trilogy is a spooky and enthralling animal fantasy. Jarvis
provides counterpoint to the heart-racing adventure with scenes of haunting beauty.The author conveys
a sense of place powerful enough to elevate the South London boroughs of Greenwich and Blackheath to
requisite stops on any bookish child's literary tour of the British capital."Publishers Weekly
"Full of adventure, this shadowy tale will both intrigue and surprise anyone bold enough to enter the Dark Portal."
T. A. Baron, author of The Lost Years of Merlin
Every mouse knows: BEWARE THE GRILL.
On the other side of the Grill lie the sewers, where bloodthirsty gangs of rats roam the tunnels.
It is in the depths of this blackness that the mysterious god Jupiter has his lair.
But one curious mouse can't resist the perilous world beyond the Grill, and soon no mouse can
ignore its dangers any longer. Before the altar of Jupiter himself, a small band of mice must face
evil at its strongest or the entire city of London could be destroyed.
ROBIN JARVIS's first book, The Dark Portal, was short-listed for the 1989 Smarties Book Prize in England, followed by two more titles in the series: The Crystal Prison and The Final Reckoning. Mr. Jarvis lives in London.
