5.0 out of 5 stars This is the best Redwall book in the series!
Well, what can I say?.Except this is the best Redwall book that has been wrote by Brian Jacques. Martin is a brilliant character. Through all of the books written about him his character has become more and more developed. This even beats Martin the Warrior off the top spot as Brian Jacques best book. I love how the action just races along at a hairaising pace, it...

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
The fact that Mossflower has been my favourite Redwall book for years, I was thrilled when I heard that a new book featuring Martin and Co. was to be written. I was wrong. The plot is flimsy, the songs are bad, and there are too many of them. The villian is waay too sophisticated and cool to be hatable, Martin spends most of his time insulting Gonff, while Gonff...

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the best Redwall book in the series!, 17 Sep 1999

Well, what can I say?.Except this is the best Redwall book that has been wrote by Brian Jacques. Martin is a brilliant character. Through all of the books written about him his character has become more and more developed. This even beats Martin the Warrior off the top spot as Brian Jacques best book. I love how the action just races along at a hairaising pace, it never stops. And Folgrim he is so interesting. When Martin and his friends first meet him he is so savage and eats vermin. Grossarama!. But after a little love and affection off Chugger and Trimp he becomes a totally different person to who he was beforehand. It's excellent when the creatures sing. Most of the characters' songs have natural rythum and tempo. Brian Jacques is a accomplished balladeer!. It's so clever and ingenious how Brian tells us how Luke use to live in Saint Ninian's and how the tapersty is not really Martin but his grandsire whose name is also Martin. It's so compelling!. All children must read this book. I'm 17 but i'm not one bit ashamed because how can you be when a book is so engrossing and rich in content? Buy it now and read the best Redwall book in the world. I can't wait for thenext one which is supposedly about Lord BrockTree. I can't wait!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is my all-time favourite redwall!!, 28 Mar 2002

Hi, I have read the book, "The Ledgend of Luke" and I absolutly loved it!! It has a perfect blend of action, adventure, and family loyalty.
It starts out with a young stranger coming and singing an old hals-remembered song about a sea-faring warrior by the name of Luke. Martin immediatly sets out to find his long lost father. his venture eventually takes him to the place on the shore where he grew up, from there he learns of a old ship stuck between some giant rocks, a few old friends of Lukes tell him the ledgend of Luke. How he died, where he went, etc.....
All in all this is a great read! I can't find any gripes to complain about, so read on readers..... You won't be dissappointed.
Kyle

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Redwall books so far, 6 Sep 2006

(REAL NAME)   
'Legend of Luke' was one of my favourites in the Redwall saga from the first time I read it. Its plotline was gripping and original, the descriptions vivid and the characters well-created. Jacques is, in a sense, tying up the loose end of what happened to Luke, Martin's father; but in doing so he manages to make an exciting, dramatic and poignant story that you won't forget any time soon. It would be fine to read as a stand-alone story, but it's better if you have read other Redwall books such as Mossflower and Martin the Warrior, so you understand the story's background and relationships between characters. All in all, it's a must-read for any Redwall fan and I would recommend it to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing and fast moving with all the thrill of adventure., 16 Jan 2001
By A Customer
'The Legend of Luke' tells of a mouse called Martin the warrior who leaves his home with two friends: Trimp the hedgehog and Dinny the mole. These three are the main characters. Martin carries a blade made by a badger lord which was fixed to the handle of his father's sword. Together they journey to find out about Martin's father, Luke the warrior. Their journey takes them to a friend of Luke's who tells them of Luke's dramatic pursuit of the evil pirate stoat Vilu Daskar. My favourite bit was when Luke ran the 'Goreleech' into a pinnacle of rock.
I would recommend this book for anybody between the age of ten and adult.
I rate this book five stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars BJ Strikes again! Written by a true fan., 6 July 1999
By A Customer
Yes, Brian Jacques has struck again with his wondrous tales of fantasy and fun. The Legend of Luke, abbreviated as LOL by the Redwall community, is another stoke of genuis by Jacques. A tale of our old friends Martin, Gonff, Dinny, and all the GUOSIM shrews striking northward along with a young traveling hedgehog companion, a cute litte squirrel, and a mad otter. And that is only half of the story! The travelers arrive at their destination, and so begins the tale of Luke the warrior, Martin's glorious father. The tales of the <i>Sayna</i> and its crew will captivate any reader as Luke and his ever enduring friends pursue the villainous pirate stoat, Vilu Daskar. The Legend of Luke is sure to be a hit for all ages. Mums and Dads, get this book for your kid. It will be worth the money to see their face as they are enthralled with the lively songs, action filled fight seens, and compelling mystery that fills each page. The Legend of Luke is the most recent addition to the REDWALL series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb reading, great series., 4 Sep 2001
By A Customer
I have read many books by Brian but none as funny sad or whitty as the rest. The thing i love about these books is that although animals play the roles in this book the reality is bizarly real! A great book, cant wait for the next.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book-but not as good as some in the series, 31 July 1999
By A Customer
This is the latest in the Redwall series-I ordered it here and had it shipped to my home in the US. It is a great book, but not as good as some of the other ones such as Marlfox and the Outcast of Redwall. In this book, Jacques doesn't always have three or four storylines going on, like in the other books where he would often switch between the creatures at Redwall, the warriors on a quest, and the vermin. He usually sticks with one at a time. But there are some great moments, and you learn some interesting tidbits about what St Ninian's Church is and the tapestry of Martin at the Abbey, and oh yes, the villian Vilu Daskar is not a very nice guy. :-) I would recommend this book to any Redwall fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reasonably good book, 2 Sep 1999
By A Customer
The book is all about Martin trying to uncover his past and the history of his father. It also focusses on the lengths he has to go to, to do it! But never fear as he has the aid of Tansy (Hedge-hog maid),Gonff (A mouse theif),Chugger (mischevios squirrel dibbun) and Dinny (A podgy mole!) Reasonably good book, though I would not say one of his best, it is interesting though because it's good to hear about what Martin's father was like, but only one for avid Redwall fans, Chugger is also one of the sweetest dibbuns in the whole book! I also think Tansy brings a calmness to the book.
