A young thief, caught between the rightful regent and the lord of the underworld. Fantasy novel with a touch of mafia and mystery.

 The book grabbed my attention from the first page, with a unique plot and interesting characters.

I absolutely loved this book.

It’s obvious that the author likes her characters.

The key to the book is the way the story is set and flows in a manner it is hard to put down.

Ratpaths is for the most part about Nivvo stealing a person, and the mess that makes of life in Istonnia and Nivvo’s life.

Ratpaths is an entertaining page-turner, by turns thrilling, funny, touching, horrifying.
