Paul has met his most audacious - and powerful - ancestor yet, Samuel Rector, who seemingly has the entire East End in thrall to him in the 1830s. His legion of 'rat boys' use terror and menace ordinarily, but with the demon seed inside them, their powers know no end. Their only match is Paul, the renegade, the one member of the Rector clan determined to strike each poisoned generation from the family history. But nobody is stronger than Lud, the King of London, struggling against imprisonment in his cell where the city's five gates meet.

'This is a brilliant book because it had a great storyline, the characters were unique and it was downright awesome! I've read the other ones in the series and this is the best one yet. Five star!
TEEN TITLES - Sean Murphy, Holy Rood High School

A brutal and atmospheric novel that combines gritty realism with pulsating, paranormal adventure ... Young adult literature at its very best
Lancashire Evening Post

Alan Gibbons is a master of theart of building tension slowly, so that the horror levels creep up page by page, without you conciously realising, but leaving you feeling uncomfortable at the same time... this is Stephen King and James Herbert territory we are entering... there is also a pleasing level of gore, and teenage horror fans will lap this up...
