The mutant white rat had grown and mated, creating offspring in its own image. They dominated the others, the darkfurred ones, who foraged for food and brought it back to the lair. Now the dark rats were restless, tormented by a craving they could not satisfy. But the white sluglike thing that ruled them knew. Its two heads weaved to and fro and stickiness drooled from its mouth as it remembered the taste of human flesh...… (mere)

They killed all the rats susceptible to poison and pesticide and can you guess what's left? Right. The immune ones. Very smart idea.

But realistic, as we've done that a lot in history. We're foolish that way. We should probably be better about how often we do it. At least it's not bacteria becoming immune to medicine this time. Rats are scary, but our bodies attacking themselves or rotting is far scarier. Sorry, James, your book trilogy is just becoming a pretty cover and me rooting for the rats, not being afraid of them.

The amount of times they were described as "tenacious beasts" or "tenacious" was a bit on the tedious side. I get it, the rats are two foot long terrors.
They're so scary only the word tenacious can be used like Lovecraft saying "queer" for odd can be abused. Both James and Howard need to not repeat themselves like this. (R.I.P both of them)

They're also evolving into slugs basically. Two headed rats with pink skin crawling about feels less scary. Just gross. I'm here for horror, not nasty gross rat slugs. Why couldn't it be a terrifying rat king not a sluggish obese pink slug? Disappointing.

There's a few sex in the woods in a horror movie and then getting killed scenes. Instead of cringing at the sex, I felt like it was karma, especially when they knew the risks. All sex scenes are cringy to me even though I'm very sexually active. There's just something about them describing their breasts and talking about how good they're humping and all that that has always made me kind of disillusioned and unamused, there's very few exceptions to books that I do not like the sexual scenes of. It's nothing against this book because it could happen in any book even Stephen King's best books and I still would hate it. Especially when they're talking about their dongs and vaginas and abusing slang words or calling them things like the one-eyed snake and such.
So the rats were here basically to quell my annoyance at a sex scene breaking out in a horror book, that old trope.

Thank you, rats.

It's definitely a downgrade from the first book, but I also trilogy I never really expect the second book to be very good. It's a rule of my life to read the second book and find it less good than the first and to read the third book and it's either either the best book or the worst book. I have one more book to read of this series and I will be leaving in my review if it was the best of the worst.

I didn't really care for the characters in the first book because I expected them all to die, but I definitely felt like their deaths were more impactful in the first book. Here it's a bunch of characters that I don't care about, and I especially don't care about after listening to the first book because now I expect everyone from the first book to be dead. And with expectations like that, I don't really care about these characters because they probably won't make it to the third book.

3.8 stars. Rounded up to four stars. ( )

Lair felt a bit off for me. I think the addition of frequent sexual scenes killed it for me. The horror aspect felt a bit underwhelming at times. But aside from that still worth reading ( )

Another fine entertainment in the rodent trilogy. Actually better than its predecessor as Herbert gets his bearings aligned and full steam on so to speak. Herbert is no craftsman of metaphor; this is a straight ahead story full of suspense, romance, and most of all grue, so don't think you are going to come out of this a better person for it.

This beautiful Centipede edition is rather too high class for the writing which is better housed in one of those stinky mass market paperbacks printed on cheap, soon to be yellowed, paper. Really, a ribbon book marker? ( )

Theeereeyyy’rrrrre back!!! “Frenzied mutant super-rats bloodlusting for human flesh...”

It’s been four years since the Outbreak, and the black rats are hungry! VERY hungry! This is an extremely graphic, bloody read! Rats vs. humans - to the death! There's really not much else to say. If you like 'em bloody, violent, and horror-filled, this book is for you! ( )
