A tale of Redwall by Brian Jacques, with many of the same characters as the previous tales of Redwall, Mariel of Redwall.

Vicious Foxwolf, his mate Silvamord and their horde of grey rats are triumphant: they are approaching Southsward which they intend to invade and conquer.

Mariel the mousemaid and her warrior companion Dandin are nearby, having left the safety of Redwall four seasons ago. When Foxwolf takes them prisoner, it is up to the legendary warrior Martin to send a warning message in a dream to Joseph the Bellmaker, Mariel's father.

Joseph realises that Mariel and Dandin are in grave danger but can he manage to track them down and, more importantly, can they be rescued before Foxwolf goes too far?

Reader's Reviews


An excellent Tale of Redwall, featuring many of the same characters that came in Mariel of Redwall; as such, the book is much better read after Mariel of Redwall. I really enjoyed this book, but, as usual, quite why it was better than some of the others I don't know; I do know that I really enjoyed this one!
