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.

A stable book in a great series.

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

Yes. I would recommend this book due to the fact that while not the best Redwall book, it show cases the best traits of the series. The story moves along well, the characters are engaging and the villains are a well written bunch.

What was one of the most memorable moments of High Rhulain?

The moments are not nearly as important as the choices of Atunra and Riggu Felis. Well chosen and delightful to listen too.

What does Brian Jacques and Full Cast bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Aside from the well played songs of the book, it gives the characters a new life due to the characters, making the world seem more realistic.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not particularly, though listening to the villains bickering was always fun.

Any additional comments?

The biggest flaw of the book comes about as the sense of danger is minor. It is a very middle of the road book, and one of the few with an otter main character (as well as the only female otter main character). So it is not the best, but far from the worst.
