The young haremaid Dotti and the badger-warrior Lord Brocktree—unlikely comrades—set out for Salamandastron together, only to discover the legendary mountain has been captured by the wildcat Ungatt Trunn and his Blue Hordes. To face them, the two must rally an army—hares and otters, shrews and moles, mice and squirrels—and execute a plan that makes up in cleverness what it lacks in force!
“The Medieval world of Redwall Abbey—where gallant mouse warriors triumph over evil invaders—has truly become the stuff of legend.” —Seattle Post-Intelligencer
“Great reading…entertaining. Classic confrontations between good and evil will never go out of style.” —The Orlando Sentinel
“Jacques’ effortless, fast-paced narrative gets its readers quickly hooked. He clearly loves this other world he has created—there’s a genuine sense of involvement and care (lots of lovingly descriptive passages), as well as an overflowing, driving imagination.” —Birmingham Post
“Completely drawn and full of surprises as the complex subplots. [Jacques] is an old-fashioned storyteller. His tale is layered and detailed—and it twists as tightly as the winding corridors and hidden passages of Salamandastron, until readers are completely immersed in his world.” —The Cincinnati Enquirer
“The Knights of the Round Table with paws.” —Sunday Times (London)
