    1. OMFG more fucking rats and this time these 2ft critters are now climbing trees and launching leapfrog style ninja attacks. Lesson 1. Stay in built up areas to avoid potential of vermin dropping from trees in surprise ambushes. One of these mutant rats will of course go on to rescue and train the teenage mutant ninja turtles but that's another tale set a few years in the future. Ok, to the story, the rats that survived the gas attack from the first book decided a holiday was in order and disapp [...]

    2. This is the second in the famous Rats trilogy (in fact there is a forth called the City written 10 years after Domain but thats a different story - literally)Anyway I digress this is part of my nostalgia tour of the early books and authors I read as I was getting in to reading while at school. Being one of the earlier Herbert's the book is graphic, visceral and violent, just want an impressionable mind wants. But seriously now such book may not have met the same fame as it did back then but none [...]

    3. Nothing quite like reading a book where the whole plot is based just outside your doorstep! Apart from that, this book blew my mind. This is the second installment of James Herberts "The Rats" based five years later, after the carnage the rats caused in London they are back Bigger and bolder and much more cunning than before. I Absolutely loved this book! Like most of James Herbert's book's I've read so far I couldn't put it down. Well worth the read.

    4. The white rat that survived Herbert's first novel brings a whole new meaning to musophobia as it attacks humans and eats them. Really chilling and creepy novel, definitely worth reading.

    5. I’d been excited about reading The Rat series for quite some time, and although I wasn’t crazy about the first book, I was eager to dive into Lair. Personally, I enjoyed Lair a lot more than I enjoyed The Rats.Lair takes place a few years after The Rats, dropping us back into the wonderful horror of the monstrous creatures. It takes all the creepy aspects of the first book and amplifies them, taking what we were introduced to in the first book and making it even creepier. It is more than jus [...]

    6. The second in the Rats trilogy, this middle book takes place five years after events in the first novel. The Outbreak that plagued London was over, but the horror was about to begin again, this time in a forest preserve outside the city. Epping Forest is about to be awash in blood and torn, mutilated bodies, but the real horror is worse than imagined.James Herbert is one of the best ever, bar none, and one of my all-time favorites. While, sadly, he passed away a few years ago, his backlist is re [...]

    7. Another fine entertainment in the rodent trilogy. Actually better than its predecessor as Herbert gets his bearings aligned and full steam on so to speak. Herbert is no craftsman of metaphor; this is a straight ahead story full of suspense, romance, and most of all grue, so don't think you are going to come out of this a better person for it. This beautiful Centipede edition is rather too high class for the writing which is better housed in one of those stinky mass market paperbacks printed on c [...]

    8. LAIR follows on from James Herbert's early bestseller THE RATS, and in some ways it is just more of the same. That being said, personally I thought this was an even better book than THE RATS. A few years after the earlier outbreak, a new plague of rats begins to run amok, this time in the Epping Forest. It falls to a rodent control expert named Pender, to try and incite 'the powers that be' into taking an early and proactive action against the marauding animals.The carnage doesn't start immediat [...]

    9. Lair is about what you would expect from your average sequel. The plot is bigger and badder, but the overall gist of the action remains the same. There were new characters and a few allusions to old ones. Except for a few especially intense or creative moment, I felt like I had been there and done that. I think ill wait about a year before tracking down the third book, and maybe that will keep things feeling more fresh. The overall quality of the writing was excellent. Where else are you going t [...]

    10. Rollicking sequel to Rats. Didn't think you could make giant killer rats hunting down humans scary but boy was I wrong. Better than Rats and very exciting and terrifying

    11. I don't know why but I have such a weakness for animals turn on people books and movies (from great ones to The Birds to terrible fun ones like The Swarm). This one is part 2 of The Rats trilogy--and is very solid but The Rat books are more schlock than high literature. For a 40 year old series it's held up very well I think. I read earlier about how some think Herbert modernized horror and was an innovator and I have to agree. They're crude but very effective and almost impossible to put down ( [...]

    12. In the second book of this trilogy rats seem to have acquired a taste for human flesh after having fled from London and after having found the sanctuary in Epping forest. It could have also been a good standalone novel since the writing style is slightly better than the one of The Rats and there is a lot more gore. If you hate rats and fear them and if you additionally fear being eaten alive, these pages might give you nightmares.Mutant rats origin is also explained and we discover there is a hi [...]

    13. The second book in the Rats series is just as good as the original.Moving the setting from the busy city to the quiet countryside doesn't change the carnage or the pace of the story- in fact it adds to it more.The characters are actually pretty similar to the previous protagonists but obviously if the formula works, why change it?Again, I thoroughly love this trilogy and I really thought this book stepped it up from the first- giving a bit more story to the "real" mutant rats, attempting to almo [...]

    14. If you've read the first one, you will have a good idea of what to expect from this book. It starts out a little more slowly, but had no problem holding my interest. The rats are just as just as vicious, clever and disgusting as ever. The setting has changed from London to a wooded area outside of the city called Epping Forest. The characters are new, but overall, it feels very similar to Rats. I would recommend not reading this book directly after the first. The ending of Lair sets up the third [...]

    15. The second in the Rats trilogy. This one takes place four years after the Outbreak of the first book, the setting now transferred from the squalor of urban London to the idyll of rural Epping Forest. Harris, the hero of the original story is absent from this sequel, getting only a name check. The story begins with a slow-building, hidden menace, before erupting into the familiar frenzy. If you liked The Rats, this is more of the same.

    16. The second book in Herbert's Rats trilogy, picks up a couple of years later and has a completely different cast of characters from the first book. Some giant, mutant rats that survived the first book flee London to a nearby forest where they regain their numbers. They begin to terrorize the countryside, including a police academy that is in the vicinity. This shows Herbert's growth as a novelist. The story is more concisely told and the ending is more satisfying than the Rats.

    17. After really enjoying The Rats, I found Lair to be a bit of a step backwards. There was some good rat violence as you'd expect but overall this was a weaker story with weaker characters than the first one. However it does further the evil rats storyline and throws in an unexpected twist at the end which leads to the triumphant Domain.

    18. Lair is a truly brilliant sequel to my all time fave horror book, The Rats. This time, the rats infest Epping Forest, and once again the poor humans become helpless rat meat! Even more spine-chilling and gory than the first, Lair will send the hairs on the back of your neck prickling with sheer terror. The greatest sequel to the greatest horror novel ever. Read it . . . if you dare!

    19. The 2nd in the trilogy, after I'd read the 1st some 30 years ago. There is a new protagonist, and I enjoyed his view, along with a blossoming love story.This novel is set 4-5 years after the first, with the surviving mutant rodents relocating to a peaceful forest area outside London.

    20. you will be put off rats forever well written constructed and thought provoking ,out and out simple no frills horror that will leave image sin your mind to haunt you well described

    21. Over the years since I read this book, I've tried to put my finger on what it was, that I found so scary about the storyline. If I disregard the fact that it was so well written, the storyline was engaging and I could connect with the characters, I have to say, that all the time I was reading the story, I knew it was possible. That's what made it so frightening to me.Soon after reading this book, there was a report in our local paper of a rat that had been seen in a nearby city, which was as big [...]

    22. Before 2010 rated this as a 2 - not sure why as I am sure it was better than that.2016 - This time I gave it 3/5. We went for a walk just after I'd finished it and I can't say that I didn't keep glancing around as we were walking through the woods looking for anything unusual. Can't wait to reread the next one.

    23. Bigger and meaner sequel to the original "The Rats", this novel tells the tragic story of reservation forest, plagued by the bloodthirsty mutant vermin, which has caused the Outbreak massacre in London. James Herbert remains as nasty as in the first part and while the book can not surprise you as the original, it has better plot and more interesting characters. A must for gorehounds.

    24. more of the same different characters slightly different plot line bigger more gore and very detailed if you loved the rats then you will love this .

    25. Thoroughly enjoyed it- classic Herbert, build up of suspense then a crescendo of gore, guts, blood and senseless killing.utter joyn't wait to get my teeth into domain now

    26. A superb sequel to The Rats. It is all explained here, the mutation, the blood lust, the mad scientist (and first victim) - this is not to be missed.
