Brian Jacques once again transports us to the magical country of Mossflower and Redwall Abbey, with it's brave and wise beasts, and evil, marauding vermin. The story of Lonnar Boldstripe and his quest for revenge is interwoven with the quest of Briggoon and Sarabando to find a cure for the paralysed haremaid Martha. The two stories mesh togother nicely and the ending is both happy and bittersweet. The production values on the audio are first class, with a large cast investing the characters with individual voices and personalities.

Although this is ostensibly a book series for children, much of the action would be a little too violent for the young ones and could cause nightmares. It is one of the best audio interpetations I have ever listened to, no surprise, give the author's background in radio, and his involvement in the project as both narrator and executive producer. Well worth acquiring, whether you are a long time fan of the Redwall series or a first time listener.

One of the better entries in Brian Jacques "Redwall" series.

The story begins near the seashore, where a pair of otters makes a shocking discovery - two badgers who have been attacked by the vermin hordes of Ragga Bol. One is dead. The other, Lonna Bowstripe, is badly injured. The otters take the great creature in and help him to recover. Lonna recovers, swearing revenge on Bol.

In the mean time, two of Redwall's prodigal "dibbuns" return home after a lifetime of wandering. Bragoon the otter and Saro the squirrel soon leave the abbey to find a cure for Martha, a young haremaid confined to a wheelchair. This cure can only be found at the ancient abbey at Loamhedge. They soon find themselves the unwilling teachers of Redwall's three current troublemakers, who have decided to join the adventure.

While Bragoon, Saro, and the others are off on their quest, Ragga Bol and crew attack the abbey, attempting to take it for their own, and enslave the peaceful creatures within. With the Otter crew gone for the season, and no warrior in residence, the residents of Redwall must rely on their own intellects to keep the vermin at bay until help arrives...
