Quotes & Awards

  • “Just as wild and woolly as its predecessors…The only thing that’s certain is that the fur will fly and numerous feasts will be noisily consumed in yet another fur-tastic tale from beloved British storyteller Brian Jacques.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “This full-cast production of the brave critters and evil vermin is, like all of Jacques’ other productions, utterly splendid. The narrator’s thick brogue sets the tone for the cast to bring all these folks to life. The numerous songs are performed with great animation and verve, being in themselves worth listening to. The musical transitions between sides and chapters are an added special touch to this enchanting tale.”

    AudioFile

  • “Fans of the Redwall series will be mightily pleased by Jacques’ new action-packed adventure…The action never lets up, the bad guys are satisfyingly evil, and the Abbeybeasts seem like old friends. The story is laced with humor, the feasts are mouth-watering, and the language is rich. Yep, it’s another good yarn.”

    Booklist

  • “A fine blend of dramatic and comic action…Jacques weaves a vivid tapestry, capably mingling several plot strands and creating a myriad of colorfully limned characters…Even the smallest squirrelbabe and tiniest shrew come alive as memorable characters. Amidst the sieges, frantic chases, and full-scale battle scenes, there are moments of levity, rapturous descriptions of feasts, and heroic ballads, humorous ditties, and lullabies.”

Listener Opinions

    " I really enjoyed this book. It's full of heroism and loyalty in ones friends. A great read once one can get past reading cockney and Scottish highland accents. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 David Rankin | 2/14/2014

    " Not a great book. I enjoyed it because it had the memorable writing which Jacques puts into all his work. Otherwise the story is rather, bland as are the characters. There are no rollover characters from the other books. Overall I'd say you can pass this book up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 1/29/2014

    " Although this was on my toread list for a while, I bumped it up when I found out about Brian Jacques' passing. His books have always been favorites of mine, and I recommend them to students who like fantasy-adventure books (or animal-related books) frequently. One could say there is a pat formula to these books - there are almost always fights against vermin, a long journey, more than one storyline that come together at the end... but to me it is comforting in a way. The ability to always revisit the hungry hares, guerilla unions of shrews, fabulous feasts, singing otters, down-to-earth molespeak - I love it. I appreciate that there are 21 books in the series - there always seems to be another I can read when I want to enter that world... but I am saddened that after the 21st, there won't be any new ventures into Redwall. Of course, one could just start the series over again... "

    " a great read! Bragoon and Saro were great warrior and mentors to the young and foolish Horty, Fenna, and Springald. Great warriors lost and great warriors born. You'll be cheering for Lonna to recover, Martha to walk, and Redwall to be safe from vermin. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Molly | 12/25/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Harrisondiesl | 11/16/2013

    " Loamhedge is a very exciting book, filled with action and suspense. It is about the badger Lonna, the adventurers Bragoon and Sarobando, and the haremaid Martha. Each person adds a new element to the story, and it ends with everyone crossing paths to defeat murderous vermin. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Caroline | 8/25/2011

    " I had about the same reaction to this as I did to Legend of Luke--I was expected much more of the history of the past, rather than the story of the beasts going to discover the past. This one felt really weak, and I felt Mattimeo was a much better look at the ruins of Loamhedge. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ann | 7/19/2011

    " What an epic. Here we revisit Mattimeo's travels. We meet new characters and face unknown foes. Here is wild adventure. "

    " This book is so sad. Why do Sarro and Bragoon have to die in the end? I guess this is the only way that they would ever die, but it just tears at the heart. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Acton | 3/9/2011
