Rated 5 out of 5 by from i loved it This book is great! I espesially liked the way Tam got his quest after everyone was eaten by Gulo the savage and his horde. My favorite part out of the whole book was when Tam fought Gulo and won by his shield cutting off his head. This book is very imaginitive and very exiting. Mabye Brian Jacques could make another book about Tam like mabye a story about his daughter.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for the Redwall series   “Brian Jacques has the true fantasy writer’s ability to create a wholly new and believable world.” –School Library Journal    “The medieval world of Redwall Abbey—where gallant mouse warriors triumph over evil invaders—has truly become the stuff of legend.” –Seattle Post-Intelligencer    “A grand adventure story. Once the reader is hooked, there is no peace until the final page.” –Chicago Sun-Times    “Jacques’s effortless, fast-paced narrative gets its readers quickly hooked. He clearly loves this other world he has created—there’s a genius sense of involvement and care (lots of lovingly descriptive passages), as well as an overflowing, driving imagination.” –Birmingham Post   “Redwall is both an incredible and ingratiating place, one to which readers will doubtless cheerfully return.” –New York Times Book Review    “An excellent adventure with an enlightened conscience. Brilliantly complex. With vibrant and distinct animal characters, Jacques’s classically inspired plot-weaving achieves virtuosity.” –Publishers Weekly    “Only a churl would reject this morality play in fur.” –Kirkus Reviews   “Filled with the kind of vibrant storytelling that fans of Jacques have come to expect. His dialogue is lively and delightful to read aloud…so rich in detail that the sights and sounds and smells of the adventure pull the reader in.” –Grand Rapids Press (MI)    “A richly imagined world in which bloody battles vie for attention with copious feasting and tender romancing. Where males and females are heroes and warriors. Where the young triumph and the old endure. Where intelligence is as valued as strength and wit is frequently more important than size…[Jacques] continues to surprise and delight with intriguing plots and fresh faces.” –Cincinnati Enquirer    “The Knights of the Round Table with paws.” –The Sunday Times (London)
