A lost friend. A family tragedy. A psychopathic scientist driven by greed.
All Shannon Dane wants to do is be with his girlfriend, Ally. So when tragedy strikes her family, he’s willing to do whatever she asks. Even break into Rat City, the run-down mansion owned by her geneticist uncle.
Ally is convinced the secrets hidden inside Rat City will give her the answers she’s desperate for, and reveal the truth behind her family’s loss. But what Shannon discovers could rip their lives– and the lives of a generation of teens – into shreds.
Rat City is a novel for young adults (13 years plus) that mixes science fiction, horror and a touch of romance with fast-paced action.
- “Ree has captured high school life in Australia to a tee and used it as the backdrop for a gripping tale that throws adventure, mystery, science-fiction, and horror into the port (school bag for the uninitiated), leaves them to fester for a while, then invites you to peep inside.” – Cameron Trost
