On a moonless night, two rats follow hypnotic lights into the forest, never to be seen again. Such is the power of the Doomwytes, sinister ravens led by the deadly Korvus Skurr. And when the young mouse Bisky persuades the creatures of Redwall Abbey to go in search of a fabled treasure, hidden long ago by one of the abbey's most notorious thieves, they do not suspect Skurr and his ravens will be vying for that very treasure.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Good ending

What does Brian Jacques and full cast bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Makes the story fun and come to life

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

In search of the hidden eyes

Good story but still confused bu the book title. What was the Sea of the Trolls? Maybe Sea and the Trolls would be better.

Love this author and his children/juvenile literature. Did not realize this was for adults. Will not continue the series. (Story is good just not right age group for us. )

Did not enjoy the narration for this book – probably because I listened to all the other books. Simber having a southern drawl just didn't work.
