  • “A female protagonist, Mariel the mousemaid, lends a contemporary touch to the fourth installment in Jacques’s Redwall series, which narrates epic events among the animals in the manner of Watership Down.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Jacques weaves his customary magic, taking the reader to the heart and soul of the mythical Redwall—welcoming, terrifying, magical, and at times all too real.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

    " Not as good as the first 3, but still entertaining *audiobook "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richard Houchin | 2/15/2014

    " The Redwall books ought to be a perennial children's favorite. They are simple and formulaic, but it's a good formula! Jacques has a real gift for dialect, and culinary descriptions. I credit an early fascination with the Redwall stories for my modern-day feats of gastronomic delight. "Salad anna scone!" "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gale Ronning | 2/11/2014

    " Another good tale. Good to see that the female mice were not typecast as weak domestic Goddesses. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kipahni | 2/6/2014

    " There is very much a pattern in Jacques books. Adventure, Quests, Feasts, Triumph, Battles. But I can't help love it all. I want to try and make some of the woodlandy food! "

    " The best ever Redwall book!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ingrid | 12/18/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sam Grace | 12/4/2013

    " I grant you, she's no Martin, but this heroine with a knotted rope inspired me as a kid. I loved reading this adventure. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alice T. | 12/1/2013

    " Mariel is cool. Again not as good as Martin "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Smith Family | 9/15/2013

    " Mariel of Redwall was ok but it wasn't as grand as some of the other Redwall books. She was too much of a fighter. I don't think it is natural for women to fight and she was so hard. Funny parts in it of course, but not as good as many others. Didn't like the revenge in it either. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jordan | 9/3/2013

    " I thought it was (tied with the Bellmaker) the lamest book in the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Adam | 3/18/2013

    " This was another average work of Brian Jacques "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jaime Lara | 2/18/2013

    " The first Redwall I ever read, this got me hooked. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kendra | 2/17/2013

    " Although not my favorite Redwall book, Mariel is quite good. It has all the best characteristics of Jacques' books, including multiple plots of adventure and conflict. I did find some parts to drag a bit at times, but overall still engaging. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eleanor | 11/10/2012

    " I liked the characters ALOT I thought that it had a very good plot. OMG I LOVED Grumm (the dibbun) so much! He was soooo awesome killing all of the sea rats. Grumm would be soooo cute if he was alive! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Edward | 9/9/2012

    " A solid entry, loses a star simply for not including some of my favorite characters. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mckinley | 5/17/2012

    " Maybe because I started with the 4th in the series. Had trouble with the device I was listening to it with as well. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Victoria | 4/14/2012

    " For some reason I didn't like this book as much as liked the others. Maybe it's just me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Book_lover | 3/27/2012

    " Marial is in truth the first real female heroine of the Redwall franchise. In some ways I really did like her, but there were some things that happened to bother me about her. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Debbie | 3/9/2012

    " This book was not terribly well written and seemed not to have gotten the care in writing that Mossflower did. It was mostly about food, but was a decent book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Halimah | 11/8/2011

    " Never finished this book, but what I did read was really good! :D "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ann | 10/9/2011

    " One of the signature pieces of Jacques with a lead female character. This novel is filled with determination and danger and will not disappoint. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marcus Di filippo | 8/9/2011

    " Probablly my least faviourte because it bores me "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kaye | 6/8/2011

    " There are parts of Brian Jacques' books that I love - descriptions of Redwall Abby and its peace, the accents in which the different creatures speak, the food, the adventure. However, if you read too many or too closely together, they begin to have a sameness about them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Miller | 5/4/2011

    " Not as good as the first 3, but still entertaining *audiobook "

    " Another fun installment of Redwall, with quite an inspiring little mouse heroine and evil searats and brave hares and a big scary badger lord and many other interesting characters. Much swashing of buckles too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tanner | 4/28/2011
