Product Description

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.

Format: Paperback
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.

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.

Format: Paperback
"Triss" is most definitely a very enjoyable "Tale of Redwall"; it has an excellent plot, a vivid cast of character and that indefinable charm that permeates every book in the series. While it does initially seem to play with some ideas already visited in the series it manages to move in an unexpected direction that makes this story feel fresh.
The plot can very easily be broken down into three converging strands:
First, we meet Triss the squirrelmaid, Welfo the hogmaid and Shogg the otter as they try to escape from slavery under King Agarnu the Pure Ferret of the northern kingdom of Riftguard. However, there is more to worry the royal mind than this as he sends his two children Princess Kurda and Prince Bladd on a mission to retrieve what he lost many seasons ago, a trinket without which he not by rights king.
Second are more would-be runaways Sagax, son of Lord Hightor and Lady Merola of Salamandastron and next in line to rule the fire mountain, and his childhood friend Scarum. Both are young and immature and, while set on adventure, know little of the outside world, so they decide to join up with the experienced wavedog, Kroova, and sail away with him in his boat.
Meanwhile the way of life of Redwallers is threatened by the discovery of a nameless terror dwelling in the newly discovered ruins of Brockhall, ancient home of the BadgerLords. This mystery is somehow connected to Riftguard and all that is happening there and it is only a matter of time before the true situation is revealed.
"Triss" is certainly one of the less grim entries to the series and while characters sometimes dance with death it is a merry jig woven with riddles, mystery and humour. Indeed, it has been described by some as the funniest "Tales of Redwall" yet and this has won the affection of many fans.
