Format: Hardcover
With "Loamhedge" Brian manages both to retain the quality and spirit of previous books in the series, while still pushing at the boundaries. In terms of plot it is a very difficult book to describe as there appears initially to be so many separate strands: Martha, a haremaid of Redwall abbey, has been unable to walk since she and her brother, Horty, were brought to the haven of safety. Held in the grips of some past trauma she is overjoyed to be told in a vision by Martin the Warrior that she may be able to walk again. However, the cure, it appears, lies far to the south in the ruins of Loamhedge Abbey. Who will travel into such dangerous territory? Horty and his rebellious cohorts are certainly game but in truth are far too young and immature to undertake such a quest.
Enter Sarabando and Bragoon, two former runaway dibbuns now growing old but still very much full of life. After years of wandering Mossflower country and beyond, they have decided to visit the abbey were they were initially brought up.
Far to the east a badger, Lonna Bowstripe, is consumed by a lust for vengeance and swears an oath to kill the beasts that murdered his dear companion. However, as he pursues the villainous Raga Bol and his crew he draws ever nearer to a certain abbey.
Lastly a bumbling crew of vermin are heading for Redwall intent on taking the fabled "magic sword" for themselves. They are led by a most amusing fox, Little Redd... sorry Badredd.
Your first reaction to this might be that Brian has put his fingers in too many pies but I am very happy to be able to report that the plot holds together very well as almost every plot group overlap and interacts with every other while still giving a very slick read. Character development is on top form and the cast is as strong as it is varied.

What can I say? I've just finished reading Brian Jacques's loamhedge and all i can say i that it's absolutely amazing! a sad and complex chapter the redwall saga that feels more like a grand work of high literature than just another redwall book. Jacques instantly taps into whatever mood he wants to create effortlessly. It's uproariously funny, beautifully mysterious, potently touching, thoughtfully dark and nailbitingly tense. This may sound like far too many emotions for one book but that just shows what a master Jacques really is. the book's real triumph is that more than in any other redwall book the characters are deep and believable, i found myself getting personally attached to them in a way the few books do. Especially Horty the headstrong teenage hare who's affection for his little sister and personal determination to prove himself to the world reminded me strongly of myself. I don't want to give anything away but by redwallen standard's the climax to loamhedge is quite sad, I genuinely felt Horty's pain as if it where my own, but inspite of that the book's end an uplifting one that would make even the worst cynic believe that that world is a good place where people can become wise and great.

Absolutely Brilliant. As a true Redwall fan i can honestly say this is one of my very favourites, the plot is really original with plenty of twists. it involves characters which have depth. Mr Jacques' fantastic style of writing means that we can identify with the characters in context. Set in a time after Triss, this book allows us to go back and explore Loamhedge, which has only evr been touched on in Mattimeo and Mossflower. It allows us to link back to the past of the story while time advances. For any real redwall fan, this is a must buy and a chance to once again get drawn back into the world of Redwall Abbey. They don't get much better than this one!
