Don't miss any of Brian Jacques' Redwall series.

"There is sacrifice, death, and bloody battles galore. Readers familiar with the series will relish returning to the Abbey." (School Library Journal)
Not in the same class as his first novels. Redwall was really very good. This novel did not add much to the series. A case of an author putting out books on a schedule rather than as a work of art.
Yes. I would recommend this book due to the fact that while not the best Redwall book, it show cases the best traits of the series. The story moves along well, the characters are engaging and the villains are a well written bunch.
The moments are not nearly as important as the choices of Atunra and Riggu Felis. Well chosen and delightful to listen too.
Aside from the well played songs of the book, it gives the characters a new life due to the characters, making the world seem more realistic.
Not particularly, though listening to the villains bickering was always fun.
The biggest flaw of the book comes about as the sense of danger is minor. It is a very middle of the road book, and one of the few with an otter main character (as well as the only female otter main character). So it is not the best, but far from the worst.
This review is of the audiobook only. The story was exciting, but the audio was somehow off, needing to be adjusted almost constantly. The narration was very quiet, but the dialogue between characters was very loud. As we listened, we felt we were being harshly reprimanded. We only made it through book one, as we couldn't bear to listen to anymore of the story. Additionally, the narrator sounded like a cross between Alfred Hitchcock and Capt. Jack Sparrow. At times, his words were so slurred, we had no idea what was being said, even after backing it up and playing again. The character performers, however, were easily understandable...just very loud.
