6 Mar 2003 Tale of Redwall
A thrilling story of Triss, a young squirrelmaid. She escapes a life of misery as a servant to the tyranical ruling ferret family in Riftgard and sets off to find her way to the Abbey of Redwall. Parallel runs the tale of two young scamps, the hare Bescarum and the badger Sagaxus, who leave the Fortress of Salamandastron and set off on board ship in search of adventure.

Amazon Review

Brian Jacques' latest fantasy novel, Triss, continues the tradition of great storytelling that he established with his debut novel, Redwall, and as ever is stuffed full of animal adventure, action and suspense. Three separate storylines come together skilfully in this 15th Tale of Redwall to deliver a satisfying read to please both long-established fans of the series and courageous first-timers.

In Riftgard, far from Redwall Abbey, a brave squirrelmaid called Triss is being held captive by the ferret king Agarnu and his cruel daughter Kurda. Guilty of nothing more than wanting their freedom from slavery, Triss, Shogg the otter and Welfo the hedgehog engineer a daring escape and steal the King's purple-sailed ship. Kurda is in pursuit and on their tails immediately, the penalty for capture being death.

In the rugged mountain fortress of Salamandastron, two young badgers called Bescarum and Sagaxus, their backpacks stuffed full of provisions, steal away from their home under the cover of dark. Both crave excitement and are determined to seek fame and fortune in a faraway land. They set sail for Redwall with adventure on their minds.

At Redwall Abbey itself, in the shadow of Mossflower wood, Ruggum the molebabe and Bikkle the little squirrel, have adventure on their minds too. In order to avoid their nightly bath, they sneak outside and head off into the trees. It's only when night falls, and their stomachs grumble, that the plan falls apart. After a restless night under the stars, Ruggum and Bikkle inadvertantly discover the lost entrance to Brockhall, legendary home of the Badger Lords. It is a chance discovery that has immense implications for the whole land.

Jacques' exciting story comes together to plunder Redwall's past and looks to its future, too, with the discovery of a new fearless heroine. It's a great mix that should be savoured. Suitable for ages nine and over.--John McLay --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.


The excitement and magic of the author's Redwall are strongly apparent in this compulsive new title. Dramatic and exciting, this will win many new friends in the 9+ age range --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Triss 22 Nov 2004
TRISS is an amazing story about a brave young squirrel named Triss who is enslaved by the evil ferret King Agarnu of Riftgard and his equally evil daughter, Kurda. But secretly Triss is planning a daring escape by sea........ Brian Jacques is my personal favourite author I would reccomend his books to anyone over ten years old who likes animal and adventure stories. Filled with excitement, adventure,heartbreaking deaths and wild battle scenes. TRISS is the 15th book in the REDWALL series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brian's Best Book 4 Feb 2003
By A Customer
This is the best Redwall book so far, but The Taggerung is not far behind. It is a heart-breaking tale of a young mousmaid called Triss and her two companions on a far away island and making a great escape to Redwall. I would like to congratulate Brian on writing so many brilliant Redwall novels without keeping the story line the same. I would reccomend this book to anyone between 10 and 17. Enjoy.
