Young Tiria Wildlough is an otter maid touched by the paw of Destiny. Her tale is an epic adventure which takes her from Redwall Abbey, across the wild Western sea to the mysterious Green Isle. There she will fulfil an ancient prophesy and gain her inheritance. Green Isle is the home of the Otterclans but they are beset by dangers from the Wildcat Riggu Felis and his catguard slave masters. Aided by two birds and a platoon of Long patrol hares, Tiria joins forces with the outlaw Leatho Shellhound and his Otterclan. This is a tale in the true tradition of the Redwall saga. Feasting and fighting, solving riddles from a forgotten volume, and questing in search of her title, Tiria strives to become High Rhulain!
About the Author
Brian Jacques - actor, playwright and BBC presenter - was first brought to the attention of children with the publication of Redwall, the first volume in his epic. Before he began writing for children, his life was as full of adventure as the stories he creates - at the age of fifteen he went to sea and travelled the world, before returning to his home town of Liverpool in England, where he still lives.

I would use this seller again.
This, the latest offering is I am sad to say also the poorest one, or perhaps it is that I'm just getting older. But there no longer seem to be any big battles in the Redwall series and there is no character ambiguity. In Mossflower one of the heroes is a kleptomaniac, Outcast of Redwall (my personal favourite) has a rat who is almost evil but redeems himself at the end paying the ultimate price. High Rhulain has none of these ambiguities, all the animals fit into the stereotypes given to them. An unfortunate feature that has plagued the last few Redwall books is the absence of likeable characters and this instalment proves no exception. All in all, this book just serves for a longing for the series to return to its original form.
