    Following the resounding success of my Locus Quest, I faced a dilemma which reading list to follow it up with Variety is the spice of life, so I ve decided to diversify and pursue six different lists simultaneously This book falls into my FINISHING THE SERIES list.I loves me a good series But I m terrible for starting a new series before finishing my last so this reading list is all about trying to close out those series I ve got on the go.As a kid, I was a big fan of the Deptford Mice trilogy brave young mice take on evil rats and their badass overload cat sorcerer, Jupiter What set them above other talking animal adventures is the dark horror edge that is Jarvis trademark The rats are very big on skinning mice and eating them frying the ears is a particular delicacy He s not afraid to lay down a body count to rival Robocop.But where the Deptford world really takes off for me is with the Deptford Histories where the classic horror elements grow stronger The Alchemist s Cat tells the back story of the big, bad sorcerer cat, Jupiter that s a great book The Oaken Throne tells the back story to the Star Wife and the war between bats and squirrels that s my favourite book in the Deptford world and one I ve re read many times since I was young.Then we come to Thomas , the third in the Deptford Histories, which tells the back story of one of the main mouse characters, Thomas Triton the fierce old sea salt I somehow missed Thomas when I was young and never even knew this book existed until a couple of years ago I re read the whole series shortly before I joined GoodReads last year, and ordered my copy in then but what with the baby and moving house and all the other good books on my list, it s taken me a while to get to it.Reading Thomas has been a big nostalgia trip, filling in a few blanks from a series I know so well and tying together the back stories of a couple characters from the original trilogy It s a very enjoyable story everything I ve come to expect from Jarvis likeable characters, great tone for the dialogue Woodj s country bumpkin talk is adorable and a creeping sense of horror For me, the original Depford Mice trilogy are all 4 star books, as is The Alchemist s Cat The Oaken Throne is a personal 5 star But Thomas I can only give 3 stars though.It s nowhere near as tightly tied into the Deptford world The Thomas Triton we know in Deptford is an old sailor who s settled down on a moored ship We know he s got some darkness in his past that causes him sleepless nights and drives him to rum this is that tale It s a sailor s tale, so it happens in far flung corners of the world not Deptford It s a tale that touches only feather light on the Star Wife and on Jupiter not at all.We have a whole new big bad the horrific snake god Sarpedon who s trying to reincarnate and usher in an era of darkness, and the dark cult The Scale who worship him What Thomas does well is flesh out the wider Deptford globe visiting, Crete, India and Singapore and mentioning many Thomas makes it clear that London is not alone in hosting civilizations of small, anthropomorphised creatures they re all over the world It also gives Jarvis an opportunity to play with exotic creatures No longer limited to mice, rats, cats, owls, bats, squirrels, etc Thomas introduces us to Mongooses, Tree Shrews, a Jerboa, a Sable and a Loris The story itself is well told the beginning serves up the knowledge that Woodj will never make it home from this adventure, leaving a lingering sense of dread over the events The escalating adversaries in the form of Morgan, Dahrem, The High Priest and then Sarpedon keep the pacing fast and dramatic The big actions set pieces are vivid and memorable the crash of the Calliope, the showdown in the mountain temple and the big final battle, etc The little backstory tie ins for Morgan and Madam Akikuyu are nicely done, as is Madame Lotus vengeance on Thomas and the final twist for Woodj If I had read Thomas back when I first fell in love with the rest of the series, I would likely rate it as highly But coming to it fresh, now, it just feels a little too distanced from the rest of the books to really resonate But it s a good book and a fun read, and I m glad I ve now completed the Deptford Histories series After this I read The Enchanted Wood

    This is book 3 of the prequels to the Deptford Mice trilogy, but it stands alone And will probably make you want to read all the other books, too.Super dark and really well written The mice have their own mouse english country bumpkin dialect and mythology We ve got a classic tale of good v evil in the form of the Green good some kind of prophet god Vaguely Buddha esque vs super evil snake demon and his hideous servants The Dark Despoiler, reminiscent of Voldemort in HP 1, is trying to get his body back after a long ago defeat at the hands of the servants of the Green Thomas and his buddy, the unfortunate Woodget, get mixed up in the magical power struggle I never thought a story about mice could be so gripping.

    So many references to other books in the series, I m not sure how many people would get into this stand alone, but it s a good yarn.By this stage in his career, I feel like Jarvis knew his audience and what he could get away with Which is to say that this book feels darker and violent than any of his previous outings and the ending is the most morally ambiguous of any of his books to date.Still, if you like his other stuff, this is another great yarn.

    The last of the Deptford Histories trilogy, and probably the least good one But it was still a barrel of fun, and the trilogy as a whole is brilliant dark, often brutal YA fantasy about mice, rats, cats and other animals in a Game of Thrones esque world that features evil cults, magic, struggles for power, betrayal, ancient prophecy, ruined cities and friendship The series does veer into bloodsoaked grand guignol at times, but it s always engaging and tremendous fun.

    The last of the Deptford Histories features of the sort of dark entertainment you d expect from Jarvis, this time focussing on a young Thomas Triton and his adventures at sea.

    If you can t get enough of those Deptford Mice, here s the story of Thomas.

    Beautiful atmosphere, I just loved the descriptions and vocabulary used.

  9. says:

    One of the best books I ve read.

    I haven t read the other books in this series but this was fairly entertaining, for a book about mice who act like people.
