Publisher's Summary

The otters of Green Isle have long been enslaved to the Wildcat Riggu Felis and his catguards, who torture the otters at every opportunity. The otters trudge on, waiting for the day their savior will arrive, the prophesized High Rhulain, who will lead them in battle and a return to glory. Meanwhile, young Tiria Wildlough, an ottermaid at Redwall Abbey, pines for her chance to learn the ways of the warrior, much against the wishes of her father. But when an injured osprey arrives at the Abbey, seeking help for its wounds and carrying tales of an embattled clan of otters, young Tiria knows what she must do.

What the Critics Say

"There is sacrifice, death, and bloody battles galore. Readers familiar with the series will relish returning to the Abbey." (School Library Journal)

Good.. not great

Not in the same class as his first novels. Redwall was really very good. This novel did not add much to the series. A case of an author putting out books on a schedule rather than as a work of art.

Like reading it for the first time again!

This was the first redwall book I read about 10 years ago. Since then I read all of the books in the redwall series and this one remains one of my favorites! Here's some of what there is to see in this book (without giving spoilers)

1. A vicious wildcat ruler wages war with a group of robin-hood-like outlaws on a secluded island, with a dangerous son plotting against him all the while

2. A giant water monster

3. A warrior so mad they think they're a shrew, sea otter, hare, and badger, among other things

4. A strong female protagonist who embarks on a journey worthy of standing out as one of the best in this enitre series

5. A really good set of songs and riddles (custom in redwall books)
