3.0 out of 5 stars A disappointment....
I know I'm going to get some nasty e-mails, but I have to say that, as a great fan of all things Redwall, this book is not all that great. I had a difficult time trying to keep the hares distinct in my mind. The dryditch fever story was boring, and Samkin was uninteresting. The saving grace of this story is Ferahgo himself, possibly the most dastardly villian in the...

5.0 out of 5 stars Salamanderstron legendery home of the Badger Lords/Ladies!, 23 Nov. 2004
This review is from: Salamandastron (Red Fox Older Fiction) (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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Salamandastron - one of the books in an very good series., 23 Feb. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Salamandastron (Red Fox Older Fiction) (Paperback)
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

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is awesome, Two thumbs up!!!, 25 May 1999
By A Customer
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good, 23 Aug. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Salamandastron (Hardcover)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Redwall! Log-a-log! Eulaliaaa!, 20 Mar. 1998
By A Customer
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!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Oi thoink 'tis too gurt to boi true! -Mole speech)), 7 Mar. 1999
By A Customer
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book in the Redwall series!!, 13 Jun. 1998
By A Customer
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!!
