Accidentally sprung into intelligence by a brutal spell, Mus the mouse finds himself cast adrift in an astonishing new world. As companion to Miriam, a Half-Horse damsel in distress, Mus must protect his lady fair from sorcery and battle, facing sinister intrigues that seek to overthrow the very throne.
When the world seems all but over run by war, Mus proves that a tiny body can hold a lion’s heart…
Set in a delightful “Cavaliers and Roundheads” world filled with Centaurs, Satyrs and magic, “Mus of Kerbridge” follows the adventures of a house mouse who becomes magically blessed (or cursed) with intelligence. In a time of court balls, intrigues, spymaster and gathering war, Mus becomes embroiled in the events that are about to shake his new found world.
This is a book rife with romance, action and adventure – with a delightful array of very human characters.
This is a reprint of my first-ever published novel. With copies of the original Mus of Kerbridge selling for absurd amounts on E-bay, I thought it might be nice to bring Mus back into print.
It was a strange experience to go back and read my first book. Even after 20 further years of writing experience, Mus still read well. A delightfully fussy, fun style. It drew its inspiration from romances such as The Scarlet Pimpernell and The Three Musketeers – and put that degree in 17th Century History to damned fine use!
It’s a pleasure to bring the little fellow back again!
