All that stands between him and a lifetime of food is a Queen, his sister, and a surface world overrun by vampires. Will the King of Alley Rats risk everything for his throne and his pack, or leave it all behind for a pretty mouse in distress?

An excerpt from

King of Rats

As his cockroach spy and only friend, Skit, scurried away down the earthen tunnel, King Giles of the Alley Rats enjoyed a rare moment of contentment. His age had been showing lately. He was indecisive at times, and had even been seen showing mercy. In a king, these were unfortunate signs of weakness, and in his warren, the weak were shunned.

Fans are saying

I first read this story in the Tales from the Mist anthology. Like others of this author's works, King of Rats introduces a creative, believable world beyond (and better than) my limited imagination! 

I especially enjoyed the unique perspective and plot.

I absolutely loved this story! It's unique and imaginative, with a touch of humor - well written, with great character development. So great in fact, Mr. Carrico had me routing for a disgusting RAT. 

Full disclosure: I read this story in the TALES FROM THE MIST anthology and am one of the authors in the book. This story was definitely one of my favorites and I've read Mr. Carrico's other works as well. I highly recommend Mr. Carrico's books if you like horror and sci-fi.
