The Rats (Rats Trilogy #1) by James Herbert 99p on Kindle @ Amazon

Found 2nd Apr
It was only when the bones of the first devoured victims were discovered that the true nature and power of these swarming black creatures with their razor sharp teeth and the taste for human blood began to be realized by a panic-stricken city. For millions of years man and rats had been natural enemies. But now for the first time – suddenly, shockingly, horribly – the balance of power had shifted . . .

Magnificent trilogy. Genuinely terrifying reads, all three, with ‘Domain’ being one of my favourite books of all time

Same here. Scared the Bejesus outta me at the time! Thanks for posting OP. Heat added.
Remember getting these from the school library when I was 11........ Maybe that's what's wrong with me haha
Brilliant trilogy
Absolute classic horror. Don't really find it "scary", but a terrific thriller - really tense, edge of your seat stuff. Quite a short novel but is better for it, as it just hurtles along
Absolutely brilliant.... if you’ve not read them your missing out.
fantastic,,,what an autor
Is this for just the first in the series?

Or can you get the trilogy.

Not very savvy thank you for any help.
I remember picking this up at a car boot sale for 50p. Introduced me to the great James hebbert read every book of his after this.
I echo the rest...awesome series.
Remember reading these in the late 70,s , scared the crap our of me.

Just the first book. The other two are about a fiver each
Thank you.
Trilogy? I'm half way through the first one and it really really sucks. Couldn't imagine anything worse than reading two more of this trollop.
Give it a chance! The third book ‘domain’ is incredible, years ahead of its time. Modern works like the ‘walking dead’ pale in comparison to the harrowing post apocalyptic world that Herbert paints. The part where they are escaping the underground bunker as the water is rising kept me reading all night. Also his book ‘48’ is the greatest book you will ever read.
I like rats though, they make very nice pets actually. Probably wouldn't find it scary
Loved them, any character that gets a 2 page intro will be rodent food by the 3rd.
Have to agree with others James Herbert was a very good author, one of my favourites. His style of writing keeps you interested from the very start.

As Davey184 says "48" was a very good read as was "Shrine" IMO but my favourite has to be the first James Herbert I read "Nobody True". Haven't quite read all 23 of his books yet but enjoyed most of the ones I have although his last book "Ash" I thought was a tad long winded & was dissapointing by his standards.
Anyone seen the film..terrible, used Daschunds disguised as Rats.

I remember reading these as a teenager, and my first introduction to proper horror. Don't expect decent prose and you'll be genuinely terrified. Sex scenes from James Herbert were always a bit cringe inducing though. HOT (for the deal, not the sex).
As soon as I saw this, just had to say really miss him, he had that great gift of just putting you in the picture, but feeling all the angst of the story . He was a true genius of horror Mr James Herbert r.i.p.

He was a brilliant author. ‘Sepulchre’ and ‘Moon’ are magnificent reads, too. Highly recommend both of them.

‘The Dark’ is also ridiculously good! A fantastic premise for a horror!

The Dark is a proper page turner.

Creed is great also - a fabulous anti-hero, is the protagonist!
