*Starred Review* Gr. 5-8. Jarvis brings the Deptford Mice trilogy to a stunning conclusion in a story that resonates with mysticism, fear, courage, and horror as Jupiter returns to deal terror and death once again. It's been two months since events in The Crystal Prison (2001), and the Deptford mice find their larder inexplicably bare, and Piccadilly discovers that the rats are being stirred up by newly arrived Old Stumpy, who turns out to be Jupiter's old lieutenant. A third momentous event is the theft of the Starwife's Starstone by Jupiter, who plans to use it for his own evil purposes. It's a humdinger of a tale, with Jupiter stealing the stars from the sky and causing the bitterest of icy winters. The brave mice and bats desperately try to find a way to combat Jupiter, and the struggle is fierce, full of mayhem and many gruesome deaths. Things seem hopeless as Jupiter works his magic to extinguish the sun and "plunge all into darkness everlasting," until the cinematic finale, a poignant denouement that will satisfy the trilogy's fans.
