This is the best Redwall book in the series!
on 17 September 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!!!!!
