Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Timothy Capehart
In the Dark Lands under the dimmed eye of Wotan, the Mice Templar fought for justice through generations until they went to war against themselves. The Templar became outcasts, but stories of their derring-do still delight youngsters. Karic and his friends play at being Templar until warrior rats attack their village. Karic is able to save the lives of his family, but he is plunged into the river where he receives a scary prophecy: he will revive the Templar. When he returns to the village, everyone is missing or dead. In the company of former Templar Pilot the Tall, Karic sets out (he thinks) to find his captive friends and save them, but Pilot and the mysterious mouse stalking them have plans of their own. This volume collects the first six issues (all that currently exist) of this exciting, creepy, and bloody epic. Equal parts Norse myth, Arthurian legend, and Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of N.I.M.H., The Mice Templar series re-imagines the warrior animal tale with just enough of its own spin to make it well worth adding to the collection. It might be difficult to tell the characters apart at first, but the dark, colorful, dynamic art will do as much as the story to keep pages turning. Fans of Brian Jacques and Erin Hunter will devour this volume and come begging for more, which could come by the end of 2009. Even those who have enjoyed the story already in single issues will delight in the forty-plus pages of extra art and information in this handsome, sturdy collection. Reviewer: Timothy Capehart
