Publisher's Summary

Joseph the Bellmaker is troubled. It has been four seasons since his warrior-mouse daughter, Mariel, and her companion, Dandin, set off from Redwall to fight evil in Mossflower. Nothing has been heard of them since. Then one night, in a dream, the legendary Martin the Warrior comes to the Bellmaker with a mysterious message. Clearly, Mariel and Dandin are in grave danger. Joseph and four Redwallers set off at once to aid them. As they push over land and sea, they cannot know the terrible threats they face: the impossible Foxwolf, Urgan Nagru, his mate Silvamord, and their vicious rat hordes. Can the impetuous sailor-otter Finbarr Galedeep help them cross the sea? What is the mystery of Roaringburn? And most important, will the Bellmaker and his companions arrive in time to help Mariel and Dandin?

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

An Excellent Work

A tale of adventure, friendship, battles, and food. Told by a full cast of actors complete with occasional singing. Listeners beware, numerous descriptions of food may make one hungry.

good story

the story fit well with the others of the redwall collection.
the cast brought the book and character to life.
while hints were left to the links to previous books, no direct mention it made about reunions or special weapons... the books were not written in a specific order, so it is understandable.
as opposed to "outcast of redwall", a character in this book findshis way to become a good rat, despite his up-bringing. he sees the right way to live and follows it in the face of certain death. i would highly recommend this book for teen and adults, but children my not understand the trials of stream-battle and mutta.

Sequel to Mariel

This was an extremely captivating story. I found myself just as caught up as I had been when I first read Mariel of Redwall. It had some extremely sad moments, some tense fight scenes, and new twists that always seem to draw me back to Brian Jacques. I love that he narrates most of his books personally, and the fact that he has a full cast to fill the roles is absolutely my favourite experience.

What an adventure!

One of the strongest works in the legendary Redwall series, the Bellmaker takes the audience along for a rousing adventure across high seas and distant lands, in a compelling rendition of the classic struggle between good and evil. Tenacious heroes find themselves battling against terrible vermin, ruthless nature, and grim odds as they strive to bring peace and freedom to the foreign realm of Southsward.

Courage and valor, humour and tragedy, good food and better companions - it's all here, delivered in the rich descriptive style Jacques has always kept as his signature. The cast does a generally excellent job delivering the performance, and Jacques' narration is, as always, robust and on-point.

If there were any single Redwall audiobook I would recommend above all others, it would be the Bellmaker, You can't go wrong with this timeless title. A wonderful story, for young and old alike.

A captivating Sequel to Mariel of Redwall

I loved this continuation of the tale of Mariel of Redwall in a new land. There's Pirates, Wolves, and ADVENTURE. I'm sure everyone will love this book as much as I did, and I'm 22!

As wonderful as anything I could hope for!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Bellmaker to be better than the print version?

The audiobook of the Bellmaker is all I cold wish for, being a massive fan of Brian Jacques, and all his stories. This does not disappoint.

What did you like best about this story?

I honestly have always loved the musical aspect to the audiobooks, and every song was put together beautifully, both with the singing and the music. The characters voices were spot on, and as a whole was excellent.
