    " Salamandastron is the longest word I've ever learnt to spell off by heart. This is allthanks to this book. As I've said about the other Redwall books. Salamandastron is funny, beautifully written and heartwarming. Salamandastron is the story of a young badger maid leaving the mountain of Salamandastron with her friend Prickle the Hare. They go in search of adventure and find many firends. Its a wonderful story. "

    " It took me awhile to get into this book. The plot lines skip around and the characters become muddled because there are so many. However, after I gave the book a chance, I realized how well written it is and I actually began to enjoy it. The action and cliffhangers actually built the tension very well for me. "
