Publisher's Summary

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.

Bisky and his fellow Redwallers must summon all their courage to face the evil horde of slithering snakes and vicious ravens. From underground tunnels to the tops of trees, the fearless Redwallers, with the help of their woodland friends, battle some of their most vicious enemies yet in an exhilarating, terrifying treasure hunt.

Fun and well-performed, but...

Great performances by a lively, thickly-accented cast. A fun adventure but a bit anticlimactic, l thought. Not one of the strongest entries in the redwall series.

Another wonderful book.

A book well worth one's enjoyment. It has been the perfect beach book to hear behind the surf and breeze.

Sound quality

I remember listening to these audiobooks as cds. Absolutely wonderful stories and production, but this recording on audible has odd sound quality issues. The volume is constantly dipping and rising in an obnoxious waves. I think it’s just an audio transcription issue. One I wish audible would fix.

Slightly disappointing

I have listened to every Redwall book available on audible with the exception of The Sable Queen. This is the first performance that I am giving less than 5 stars. The volume of the voices in this performance changes randomly throughout the book. Not a huge issue, but I am still slightly disappointed. I will continue to recommend these books as they are all amazing!!!

Doomwyute

Another excellent Redwall book, full of all the usual suspense and drama. Korvus Skurr, a deadly raven, is an excellent villain - especially when he is attacked by another evil force, Balis, the giant adder.

Overall, this is a lot better than a the previous one Eulalia! which I found a bit dissapointing, but not as good as some other ones.
