Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The murderous Rapscallion army is on the move. Dealt a humiliating defeat by Lady Cregga Rose Eyes, the Badger Lady of Salamandastron, who still pursues them, the Rapscallions are heading inland to take an even greater prize: the peaceful Abbey of Redwall. The elite fighting unit of hares, the Long Patrol, is called out to draw them off. At the forefront is the young hare Tammo, the lead sword in one of the most ferocious battles Redwall has ever faced?ready to fight to the death!

Review:

"Jacques sticks to the tried-and-true in the latest installment of the Redwall series. In the declining years of the characters previously featured in Pearls of Lutra, a menacing band of raiders again threatens Redwall Abbey. And once again the good animals of Redwall and Mossflower must join together to fight the invader. A new protagonist, the young hare Tammo, joins the Long Patrol, an outfit charged with the protection of all the animals in Mossflower Wood and fabled for its soldiering; he does well in battle but wants no more of it: "No, I'm not all right, sah. I've seen death!" Love, sparked by an attractive female hare, is more important to him. Meanwhile, at the Abbey, excavations lead to a treasure hunt, like the one found in Lutra though not as integral to the plot. These familiar story lines are seasoned with a few other new characters and groups of animals, notably a wandering female squirrel (who, unfortunately, survives only halfway through). The Painted Ones and the Waterhogs, based on what appear to be popular perceptions of African tribesmen and Native American warriors, also make guest appearances. And of course, there is the familiar roster of animal typesroyal badgers, officer-class hares, greedy but cowardly rats and the country bumpkin moles, who can always be relied upon for a funny "gem of mole logic." The formula, in other words, still works, and the narrative, as usual, is tightly plotted andexcept for the difficult-to-decipher dialects and lengthy descriptions of foodbriskly paced. A feast for the faithful." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"[Jacques is] a masterful storyteller....As in the other Redwall books, the combination of an absorbing plot, robust characterization, and detailed description make the novel a page-turner." The Horn Book

Review:

"The medieval world of Redwall Abbey — where gallant mouse warriors triumph over evil invaders — has truly become the stuff of legend." Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Review:

"Fans will find characters and connections from previous books, the familiar thick dialect, delicious language, dashing action, and the comforting happy ending they've learned to expect." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"...a worthy addition to a series that has found a definite niche among fantasy lovers." School Library Journal

Synopsis:

This New York Times bestseller features Tammo, a daring young hare hungry for adventure, who is sent with Russa Nodrey, the wandering red squirrel, to join the Long Patrol and defend Salamandastron against the Rapscallion horde. Illustrations.
