Publisher's Summary

With more than 20 million books sold, Brian Jacques’ acclaimed Redwall series has become the stuff of legend. In this 21st swashbuckling entry, Vilaya the Sable Quean and her henchman Zwilt the Shade set their evil sights on Redwall Abbey. But also headed toward the abbey is Buckler, Blademaster of the Long Patrol—a brave hare perfectly suited to hero status.

Wonderful book, I love love love this series

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would definitely recommend this audiobook to a friend. It was a great story, told from the author's mind with his voice giving life to the story. AMAZING!!! There is one negative though as the last few minutes of the book simply didn't exist in the recording. BIG problem.

Who was your favorite character and why?

favorite character? Seriously? hmmm I suppose IF I had to choose only one I might choose Mumzy.

Any additional comments?

My only negative, which is a pretty BIG negative. The last three minutes of the book were not there!!! I would have been beyond ticked off if I didn't have the physical book here with me, but having the physical book and NEEDING to look up the end totally negates the point of an audiobook, doesn't it?????

Swilt vs Buckler

A great story but swilt’s death is a slight bit disappointing as a great story must have the hero about to lose but then somehow manages to win. Still a fantastic book.

Not the most tightly written Redwall story.

Charming characters and a strong villain, but suffers from several unnecessary plot threads that could have been cut out with no loss.

wonderful naration

great naration by author and full cast, can't believe these aren't more popular. this isn't my favorite of his books, but the narration added a lot, especially to the songs, which I usually skip when reading the actual text

A wonderful book!

The Redwall series has always been a staple for me in literature and this twenty-first in the series was just as good as the first. I'll never stop wishing that Mark Jacques will take his father's place are the new author so that one day we might read more tales of the abbey and Mossflower country. Though one is always welcome to revisit the stories of old or share them so that others may make new friends and hear of great triumphs over evil and adversity. After all, the doors to Redwall Abbey are always open to good and gentle creatures..
