Product Description

Amazon Review

As the inhabitants of Redwall relax in the haze of the long, hot summer, they are unaware that the neighbouring stronghold of Salamandastron lies besieged by the evil weasel army of Ferhago the Assassin, and that the Mara, the beloved daughter of Urthsipe, Badger Lord of the Fire Mountain, is in terrible danger. But when a lightening bolt uncovers the sword of Martin the Warrior, young Samkin embarks on adventure that leads him to Mara, and their lives become inexplicably entwined.

Brian Jacques once again strikes to the heart in this stunningly executed adventure, another in the bestselling Redwall series, proving, if indeed proof was needed, that he ranks high among the best children's authors in the world. His genius lies in his ability to capture character and atmosphere with a stroke of a pen, drawing the reader in until the only way to start breathing again is to finish the book. --Susan Harrison --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
This incredible story by Brian Jacques is filled with adventure, excitement and moments good and bad. The tale begins with a badger Lord Urthstripe the strong of Salamanderstron and his adoptive daughter Mara. Mara and her young hare friend Pikkle run away from the mountain Salamanderstron ignoring the cautions of her pretective father, until they encounter an inocent blue-eyed weasel, Klitch, and his ferret friend Goffa. They soon befriend each other but little do they know that Klitch is the son of the evil Ferahgo the Assassin.....
The events of Redwall and Salamanderstron link up into an amazing quest to get back Martin the Warrior's sword and an amazing battle against Ferahgo and his horde.
An incredible book you must read it!

In Salamandastron, all is peaceful until Ferahgo the Assassin and his army of Corpsemakers arrive, putting Salamandastron under siege. However, who knows that Mara, daughter of Urthstripe, the badger Lord of Salamandastron is in terrible danger? But when a lightning bolt reveals the sword of Martin the Warrior to young Samkim, his and Mara's life become closely entwined. Danger is also heading towards Redwall Abbey, this time in the form of the deadly Dryditch Fever. It is rumored that the ony thing that can cure this are the Flowers of Icetor. So Throgg the otter sets out to find them. They grow only under the nest of the Wild King MacPhearsome. This series is truly enchanting!! - Katriel Cohn-Gordon

I read a real good book called Salamandastron, by Brian Jacques. It is a fantasy book about woodland creatures that fight wars with vermin like rats, weasels, stoats, etc......... This particular book is about the evil Ferrahgo the Assassin-an unmerciful ferret warlord that wants to take over the mountain fortress Salamanstron. But, Urthstripe the Strong has other plans. Mean while at Redwall Abbey, place of peace, the sword of their mighty hero has been stolen by two stoats that brought a disease and killed a man. See how they cure the sickness,recover the sword, and if Urthstripe can defeat Ferrahgo and the vermin in the action packed fantasy book, Salamandastron.

This book is very similar to the other Redwall books, except this one focuses not on Redwall or a journey outside Redwall, but on Salamandastron. Salamandastron is under siege and it's up to the badger lord to defend the mountain. This is an exciting book with a tragic ending, fast pace and plenty of cheerful, comic and heroic characters. There is, as usual, a bloody and dramatic ending.

I just finished reading SALAMANDASTRON, and I can't say what I thought of it more clearly than this: One of the best books I have ever read! I noticed that the illustrations are a bit out of proportion, but so what? It's the book that counts! I've read only one other Redwall book: Redwall itself. I loved, or rather hated(meaning the villains themselves)the way Klitch and Ferahgo were described, and grimaced at just how evil they were. "What in the world could be more evil than Ferahgo?" I kept thinking to myself. But about the better creatures, I like Thrugg the best, and Pikkle Ffolger. The scene I liked most was when Pikkle says "It's bad form to stop a fellow in mid-scoff!" Ha-ha-ha! The battle cry for Salamandastron is one of the only ways to describe this book in one word, so "Eulaliaaaaaaa!"

I think it's too good to be true! Salamanstodon is one of many wonderful Redwall books. I think anyone who thinks it's stupid IS STUPID, not to be rude, though. Feahrgro (I think that's spelled wrong), is one of the worst most evil villians in Redwall history! He and his braty son Klitch. Those two never got along, and when some vermin turned against their evil leader and tried to kill him, Feahrgro thought his son hired them to, so he really didn't trust Klitch. I thought Klitch was idiotic to kill himself, even though he didn't mean to. He should have known. I liked the good guys much more, and the way that Urthwyte was found, and how everybody came together. It was sad in some parts, but that didn't change how much I loved it! I love this series a whole lot, and I think that people of all ages should try it out!

From Redwall Abbey to Salamandastron, the evil weasel assassin Ferahgo will change every creature's lives. From the great treasure hidden inside Salamandarston to the legenary sword of Martin the Warrior. It is the best book that you will ever read!

Salamandastron has to be the most moving and captivating book that i have ever read.I sat enthralled for hours whilst reading this and became totally captured by the detail and personalities that each of the characters has been given.It has been read so many times that i have now lost count! I adore the bravery of Mara and the companionship that Pikkle Ffollger shows her.My favorite part has to be when Mara add's the last name to Urthstripes title - "father" as this was when Mara realised that she did love him.I think that Brian Jacques is a brilliant writer and is also a very unique writer as i don't know of any other writer who can write a whole page on the description of food!! well done!!
