A missing eye. A broken wing. A stolen country. The last job didn't end well. Years go by, and scars fade, but memories only fester. For the animals of the captain's company, survival has meant keeping a low profile, building a new life, and trying to forget the war they lost. But now the captain's whiskers are twitching at the idea of evening the score.

The plot is straight, the characters somewhat thin, the prose is okay. It's a bit of western, bit of a team builder, all with anthropomorphic animals fitting into their role a but too well. There were a few points that the prose felt like too much word play but I suppose it comes with the characters. It picks up near the second half when the more action oriented scenes come up. The narrator does give each character a bit of a different spin and his non dialogue narration is excellent. But by the mid point having him do a whispy mouse voice in my ear grated along with a few other characters that don't suit his voice.
What do you get when Redwall meets the Wild West? The Builders! what a fun, bloody, howling good listen!
This was a great movie script, and a solid 6 stars if anyone makes it into a movie animated or live action but still great to just listen, this is for adults only worth to listen the narrator did a solid on this.
