Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The most captivating Redwall novel yet!

There has never been a Redwall hero quite like Rakkety Tam, the roguish Highlander squirrel who sets off for Mossflower Wood on a mercenary errand and loses his heart to the charms of Redwall Abbey. And there's never been a villain quite like Gulo the Savage: a vicious beast-eating wolverine who descends upon the Abbey in search of a relic called the Walking Stone. Readers will cheer at the return of the Long Patrol, the antics of a renegade vole thief, and the emergence of a new champion to wield the sword of Martin.

As fans of Brian Jacques and the bestselling Redwall series know, the adventures just keep getting bigger and better.

Review:

"[A] tale of war and courage includes a cast of thousands that battle fiercely and relish their comradeship....Several intriguing characters stand out....The complex plot and frequent use of Scottish dialect may try a casual reader's patience, but Redwall fans won't be deterred." Booklist

Review:

"This fast-paced adventure will keep readers on their toes until the final battle....The colorful writing style, the strong cast of characters, and twisting plot will continue to delight fans of the series." School Library Journal

Review:

"This epic adventure will well-satisfy the fans waiting for the next Redwall novel....Elliot's black and white drawings at the beginning of each chapter provide a wonderful yet non-intrusive illustration of this adventure-packed story." Children's Literature

Synopsis:

Setting off for Mossflower Wood on a mercenary errand, roguish Highlander squirrel Rakkety Tam soon loses his heart to Redwall Abbey. When Gulo the Savage, a vicious wolverine, descends upon Redwall, Rakkety Tam becomes the new champion to wield the sword of Martin. Illustrations.

Synopsis:

Two warrior squirrels lead the battle against Gulo, a bloodthirsty wolverine who will stop at nothing to recover the Walking Stone that will give him the authority to rule the lands of ice beyond the Great Sea.

Synopsis:

The latest "New York Times" bestselling entry in the Redwall series tells the story of Rakkety Tam, the roguish Highlander squirrel who sets off for Mossflower Wood on a mercenary errand and loses his heart to the charms of Redwall Abbey.
