Driven by their blood-frenzied master, GoRec, a merciless army of rats swarms toward the underground mouse-city of of Tira-Nor to slaughter the mice and seize their ancestral home. But rats are not the only nightmare to awaken in the dying days of summer---a cold and bodiless evil stalks the lonely tunnels of the city, a shadow whose presence may mean that the doom of the Ancients has risen once again. Tira-Nor's last hope lies with JaRed, son of ReDemec, a mouse so small and young even his family calls him Runt.
When GoRec's vast rat hordes descend on the plains above the city, JaRed is torn between his inner conviction that "right makes might" and the common sense that tell him victory against such terrible odds is impossible.

Customer Reviews for Runt the Brave: Bravery in the Midst of a Bully Society - eBook
Review 1 for Runt the Brave: Bravery in the Midst of a Bully Society - eBook
Paralleling the Biblical story of David and Goliath, Runt the Brave is an excellent young adult fantasy novel, telling the tale of a mouse named JaRed. A Commoner. The author has a distinct and colorful narrative style, and a knack for creating interesting (often quirky) characters. As a natural result, a keen sense of comedy is prevalent. Contrasting and complimenting the lightheartedness is a wonderful depth in the characters, emotion, and overall story. The novel's structure is very sound--from an intriguing opening to a fitting conclusion, and all in between. "Right makes might."

Review 2 for Runt the Brave: Bravery in the Midst of a Bully Society - eBook
This book brings an excellent depiction of a biblical story in an unusual setting, yet one that incites and draws in. I will be looking forward to the continuation of this series, for the story given here is but the first.
