Quotes

  • “Could it be another epic Redwall tale (tail?) thick with high adventure, heavy accents, and leek-and-turnip pasty from the beloved beast master himself, Brian Jacques? It is indeed, happy readers…Jacques’ fervent followers are rewarded with the author’s usual swashbuckling good storytelling, while the newly initiated will read with wide eyes, and quickly go back to hungrily devour the rest of the series.”

    - Amazon.com, editorial review
  • “Humor is plentiful, much of it provided by the gluttonous madcap hare, Scarum. And also present are the familiar feasts, all regaled in delicious detail. Of course, Jacques doesn’t skimp on violent, gory battles in which the good win but not without suffering some deaths among their numbers. The myriad Redwall fans will relish this.”

    - Booklist
  • “Jacques reads with such drama and insight that the story shimmer with immediacy…The funny bits are funny, the evil episodes are truly frightening, and the many ship escapades and battles are exciting. The addition of original music enhances this suspenseful production for Redwall fans.”

    - Booklist (audio review)
  • “Jacques has created a wonderfully imaginative and beautifully realized universe, filled to the brim with amazing and amusing characters.”

    " i didn't like this book, my friend tristen told me to read it last year "

    " Somehow I found the focus of this book to be all over the place. I was expecting Triss & her plight to save the slaves to be the main character of the story, turns out not really. That bit's only featured as a sideline. Hardly. Perhaps I would've given it more stars had it not been in Redwall series, but compared to the other stories in the series so far, this one's a bit of a dissapointment to me. "

    " This book is about three runaway slaves that have stolen a boat and are traveling to Mossflower Wood. It is very hard to stop reading this book once you have gotten into it. "

    " Despite all of Mr.Jacques's books being very long, I felt as if this one was TOO long. There were a few places near the end where I wished the story could just wrap up, but, at the same time, I'm glad I finished it. "

    " Triss. Oh Triss. My favorite out of all the Redwall books. I long to be like Triss. This novel has everything. Enslavement, freedom, battles with serpents and even a CODE. Which I still use to this day! This book keeps me coming back for more! "

    " I felt this was a lot better than Mariel of Redwall when it came to the "female warrior" idea, but even then it wasn't all that great. A fun book, but nothing remarkable. "

    " I enjoyed this little adventure and found the characters deeper than the usual Redwall animals, but the dialogue that Jacques uses continually leaves me skimming over sections with boredom. I enjoyed this book but I can't imagine giving it more than three stars. "

    " Interesting premises, although it wasn't as memorable as the rest of Jacques' other literary triumphs. Triss did not particularly stand out as an heroine, and I found myself just slightly bored towards the end. "

    " This is part of the Redwall series. Now, that series is usually a series with some fights in it and one huge battle near the end. Bu, Triss is more about a couple slaves running away and being chased, so there aren't any big fights, although there are a couple skirmishes. "

    " The book that killed Redwall for me. Granted, it wasn't as disappointing as Taggerung, but by this point I was too old to tolerate evil ferrets speaking Viktor Krum-ese. It was nice to have a female warrior, but otherwise it's the same tired Redwall fare. "
