Publisher's Summary

Kerry Nietz, the award-winning science fiction author of Amish Vampires in Space and A Star Curiously Singing brings you Rhats!.
 

Beyond the boundaries of civilized space lies the region of the Muto Empire. Mutos are a mammalian race that resembles a cross between a human and a Terran rat. Though spread across thousands of worlds, mutos - or rhats, as they are sometimes called - trace their lineage to a single dark world that orbits a ruined....
 

Enough of that! 
 

My name is Frohic, and I'm a muto. I've never seen the home-world, and I couldn't care less about civilization, empires, or space. Especially space. All I want is to survive in a family that sometimes forgets I exist. My mother is always pregnant, my dozen siblings are swarming over every available surface, and my father makes plan after plan to send us all away. Sure, our hovel is crowded, the food is sparse, but at least it's home. 
 

Then everything goes tails up.

why'd it have to be rhats

Rhats is a fun space adventure. it features a race of beings known as Mutos. They resemble Rats and kind of act like them too. The worst part is feeling empathy for the poor protagonist forced to serve on a smuggler ship against his will, and then remembering to picture him looking like a rat.

appearances aside, I loved this short novel that honestly had a kind of Firefly feel to it.

The narrator brought the book to life, in an entertaining performance.

Looking forward to hopefully seeing the second Rhats book in audio soon.

Addictive

I didn't realize at first that this was written in a universe already created by a game that has gone through several generations over several decades. It takes the burden off the writer to create a universe and instead focus on the fun characters and clever plot.

The hero keeps proclaiming he is nothing special and yet he is entirely endearing. He truly is humble and his reactions to the strange new worlds into which he is thrust are hilarious and very relatable. Watching the other oddball characters orbit around him is a true delight.

Loved all the titles in this series.

I know why this book is so short

I got this book on the last sale on Audible and I think it was a good buy.

the only problem is that the Narrator of this book was in an awful rush - he has awesome breath control coz there were very few silent spaces in the book. the rushed pace of the book is not all of it is the narrator's fault as the story moved abruptly in some spaces. I had to slow down the audio to 0.8 and it still sounded normal. This was a first for me!

That said, I would get the next book - but maybe on kindle as the story is brilliant and I want to know more about this universe.

Rhats in space I like.
