In a not too distant future, humanity is extinct. The world is now ruled by animals who wield swords, magic and technology to create and protect vast empires. As darkness grows on the horizon, an unlikely hero will be chosen to defend this new world.
Del Hatherhorne would rather stay inside and read about heroes than become one himself. But when it is discovered that he bears an ancient power with the ability to commune with and call on the elements, he is swept up into the Longtails, a mouse military force tasked with protecting the Mouselands and all of mouse-kind.
From gun-wielding minks, to terrifying shrikes and even a pack of squirrel skyrates, Del will have to leave his comfy home and face the many dangers of the world if he hopes to learn to use his new-found powers and uncover a plot more nefarious than he ever thought possible.
From Jaysen Headley, author of A Love Story for Witches and A Home for Wizards, comes the first in an epic fantasy series about mice, magic, adventure and the power that comes when we choose to believe in ourselves. Ready your sword, practice your spells, and answer the call of the LONGTAILS!
