Book Description

7 Oct 2004 Tale of Redwall
A dark force is rampaging through the forests of Mossflower. Gulo the Savage, wolverine, flesh-eater and brutal killer, has come across the seas in search of his brother, Askor. Askor stole the famous walking stone that will make one of them king of the lands of ice and snow - and Gulo wants it back. Anybeast who gets in Gulo's way is dead meat. Literally. Rakkety Tam McBurl is a brave border warrior, travelled south in search of adventure. But when his army is attacked by Gulo's flesh-eating band, adventure finds him. Gulo is heading for the ancient Redwall Abbey - and Rakkety Tam is determined not to let the savage Gulo destroy the peaceful ways of Redwall.

5.0 out of 5 stars An interesting change... 30 Jan 2005
By Tom B
With "Rakkety Tam" Brian shows a real change of direction. After the personal journeys of "Loamhedge", "Triss" and "The Taggerung" it is a pleasant change to have a truly epic entry to the series. Quick and pacy, the plot hums along very effectively as we find ourselves embroiled in the kind of war the series has not seen since "Mossflower".
Rakkety Tam Macburl is a squirrel mercenary, who along with his friend Doogy Plum has sworn his service to King Araltum and Idga Drayqueen. However, in contrast to Lady Melesme of Salamandastron these two self-proclaimed monarchs are rather foolish and egocentric. After speaking out against their ridiculous ceremonies and absurd rules Tam and Doogy find themselves imprisoned, bound by the laws they once purposed to uphold.
However, danger is quite literally on the horizon. Gulo the Savage, terrifying wolverine of the lands of ice, eater of his enemies' flesh, along with his band of white furred vermin, is sailing to Mossflower country in search of his brother, Askor, and the item he stole after the murder of their father, the object that gives validity to the ruler of their northern kingdom: the fabled Walking Stone. But with the former's death and the latter's disappearance, Gulo begins a rampage of terror and gruesome death through the woodland, bent on recovering the lost trinket. After news of the Walking Stone reaches Redwall, it is not long before it becomes clear that two of Redwall's own, Sister Armel and her friend the ottermaid Brooky, must set off to deliver the sword of Martin to the beast who will protect the abbey from the approaching terror.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yet another riveting read. 17 Nov 2013

Yet another ingenious story of Redwall Abbey and its allies fighting against villainous vermin who want nothing more than to kill those who stand in their way. Not to mention a few naughty wee dibbuns to boot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Series 11 Dec 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My daughter is enthralled by this series - and now my younger son and I are also amazed by Brian Jaques ability as we do night-time reading with the Redwall series. It is great. Old-fashioned morals and swashbuckling adventure set with believable animals in lives that praise the beauty of the natural world in clear, though often poetic, English.
