A shadow has fallen on the shore of the Eastern sea, a shadow called Marshank. In this cold stone fortress a stoat named Badrang holds dozens of innocent creatures as slaves, part of his scheme to build an empire where he will rule as unquestioned tyrant.

Among those slaves is a mouse named Martin who has a warrior's heart, and a burning desire for freedom—freedom not only for himself, but for all of Badrang's victims. There is no risk he will not take, no battle he will not fight, to end the stoat's evil reign, and in the process regain the sword of his father, Luke the Warrior—the sword that Badrang stole from him when he was but a lad.

Once again master storyteller Brian Jazques has crafted an epic adventure and filled it to the bursting point with unforgettable characters, including villains so hilariously evil you'll barely be able to keep from hissing them, and loveable woodland creatures so brave you'll want to stand and cheer as they fight for their freedom.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 joanna | 2/18/2014

    " Marvelous! Read by the author and a full cast of colorful characters, whose voices brought their already vivid personalities to life. I love how Brian Jacques told real stories of heroic valor and war and strife and suffering, but made them accessible to children as well as adults by using animals instead of humans. Loved it. "

    " I started reading this book and decided that the audiobook would be better because of the strange accents. I absolutely detest reading dialogue with accents because it slows me down. So the audiobook was better in that regard, but evidently I'm not a Brian Jacques fan. I know he's popular and a genius with animal fantasies, but I wasn't entertained. The full cast production was entertaining, but I'm just not sure why I couldn't wait for the book to end. There have been animal fantasies that I have loved--Fire Bringer by David Clement-Davies is the first one that comes to mind. I did love the evil character Badrang--he made me smile.... "

    " One of my favorite child hood fantasy series. I still love it and occasionally pick one out to read for a light and easy novel. I have read the series many times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mulan | 2/14/2014

    " This book was alright,the writting was very good and creative, but I just wasn't really all that motivated to see what happened in the rest of the book. And I know you are probably wondering why I started on around the sixth book, but I don't why. I was really hoping I could give it a two and a half star, but I decided to be nice. But if you like thrills, castles and rodents, it would be good (I personally have a bias because I actually HATE rodents but...). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lizzy _3 | 2/7/2014

    " This was another of my favorite Redwall books. It was really fun to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nick Lanich | 2/5/2014

    " This was a really good book. I like it how in the first book they all worship martin but you dont know what his story was. Now here is his story Martin the Warriors story "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 1/28/2014

    " This is really good because it show Martin the Warrior. But it is REALY sad in the end!!!! It is still really good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Todd | 1/22/2014

    " This is a great addition to the series creating groundwork for most of the other novels. I greatly enjoyed this book and the action it. The writing is nothing spectacular and the secondary characters are not exactly dynamic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cecelia | 1/19/2014

    " What can I say, its another redwall book. "

    " Best children's book EVER "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew | 12/4/2013

    " I thought this book was one of this best of the Redwall series. It had sadness, action, and a sense of finality the others didn't have. The characters were some of the best and all the Martin books have good endings. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heron | 11/24/2013

    " Rereading all of Redwall. So good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yousef M | 11/7/2013

    " See my Redwall review. I've read many of the novels in the Redwall series, but I recall this one being the best out of all of them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ben | 11/2/2013

    " My favorite Redwall book growing up. "

    " This was my favorite Redwall "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brandi | 10/10/2011

    " Fun addition to the Redwall series "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela | 1/17/2011

    " Trademarks are good food, good songs and poetry and lots of swashbuckling. Another tale in the Redwall series with all the woodland creatures fighting an evil foe. This one tells more of the Martin story and furthers our knowledge of the founder of Redwall Abbey. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sdoconnor | 9/9/2010

    " This like the rest in the series is an amazing book. Telling the story of one of the enduring figures throughout the series, Martin. This puts a backgroung to the figure that would otherwise be mysterious. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendy | 6/11/2009

    " Brian Jacques has never failed to write fantastic children's epics! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Coleman | 5/8/2009

    " The story of a Legend "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 pearl | 4/15/2009

    " The best Redwall book and by far one of the most somber, real, and heroic. Loved it the moment my older sister bought it for me when I was about six years old, and she read it aloud to me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patrick Woolford | 10/28/2008

    " My favorite Redwall book of them all. The line in one of the last chapters when Martin gets his sword back and sees Rose lying broken by the wall after Badrang killed her and he says 'Rose, we could have chopped the sycamore down with this..." It made me sad... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caroline | 8/27/2008

    " This was my second-favorite of the Redwall series, and I think a lot of it had to do with the tragedy of it. Unlike most of the books, the ending is bittersweet rather than happy. Anyone who had read Mossflower before knew that something bad was going to happen, it was still a pretty big shock. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Raul | 7/21/2008

    " it's a book where everything is different. animals talk and make human things. it's not real but is entretaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bethany | 7/4/2008

    " A very exiting read about a MOUSE!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenna Garrett | 5/28/2008

    " I loved Brian Jacques - his stories were some of the first "chapter books" I read in 1st/2nd grade - I simply devoured his books and read them over and over. "
