Publisher's Summary

A shadow has fallen on the shore of the Eastern sea, a shadow called Marshank. In this cold stone fortress a stoat named Badrang holds dozens of innocent creatures as slaves, part of his scheme to build an empire where he will rule as unquestioned tyrant.

Among those slaves is a mouse named Martin who has a warrior's heart, and a burning desire for freedom: freedom not only for himself, but for all of Badrang's victims. There is no risk he will not take, no battle he will not fight, to end the stoat's evil reign, and in the process regain the sword of his father, Luke the Warrior: the sword that Badrang stole from him when he was but a lad.

Once again master storyteller Brian Jacques has crafted an epic adventure and filled it to the bursting point with unforgettable characters, including villains so hilariously evil you'll barely be able to keep from hissing at them, and loveable woodland creatures so brave you'll want to stand and cheer as they fight for their freedom.

A Fireside Tale for all Ages

The tales of Redwall narrated by the author Brian Jacques with his thick brog and a full cast of voices are a ticket to the unique theater of the mind. Reminiscent of radio drama mixed with the delightful fantasy of a JRR Tolkien Hobbit tale and the satisfaction and pleasure we all felt the first time we watched The Princess Bride. These books are filled with swashbuckling mice, evil stoats and weasels, heros and champions, romance and families, all spun together by a master storyteller who paints pictures of the world of forrest creatures so vivid that I could smell the oatmeal scones with maple cream.
Delightful!

Return to Childhood, with a Smile

An old favorite, I've always loved this story in book form. But now that I've listened to it in audio form, I've found new love for a childhood staple. A large cast contributes to a rich voice of characters, with the narration read by none other than the author himself. A must-listen to any fans of the Redwall-verse, and a beautifully-crafted piece of art to any connoisseur.

Another masterpiece.

In this epic tale of love and war, Martin's true backstory is revealed. It shows the events set before the book of Mossflower, and reveals how Martin became the solitary warrior that he is. Narrated by the author, the setting, characters, and plot are all exceptional. Can't recommend this entire series enough.

very funny adventure

I listened to redwall before hearing this book, and this book was very funny. the rabbit in each book sounded and acted far to similarly, but everything else was quite different. the story was very well thought out. the actor's brought the characters to life. the plot was a little forced, but it worked out in the end. the jokes were very cute, and it made the redwall book sound boring in comparison. a great listen for adults and children. however, the person reading the chapter numbers was distracting... I was honestly waiting to see if she would crock it the middle of announcing a chapter.

Simply Wonderful!

I loved this book as a child and it was even more fun to experience it once again with all the different voices and accents. It made me feel like I was watching the old Redwall cartoons which were equally fun and inspiring. The story is vibrant, engaging and the voice acting was very entertaining.

More audio books should be like this

I love that Brian Jaques has a full cast for his stories. It feels more like a story when it's acted out.
