One of my all time favorite series! I love each and every one! A great book for young adults, and adults alike! I'm in college, and still read these, and enjoy them each! Good for animal lovers, adventures, and those who just like a good tale of good over evil! ( )

This is the story of Martin, the founder of Redwall Abbey. An heroic adventure of Fur and Freeeeeeedom! Searats have invaded the shores, along with stoats and various other unsavory characters. They have enslaved the smaller animals and intend to stay. Martin, who has been enslaved, humiliated, tortured and slated for death, comes into his own when he finds some friends to give him courage and help.

Jacques doesn't pull any punches with the drama, fighting and reality of war. I appreciate that he does not underestimate the audience he writes for. Also, his descriptions of feasts are amazing. Redwall is a terrific world to immerse oneself in, however, for me this time it dragged a bit. Some of the beast interactions became a bit quaint or repetitive and only slowed the story down. Perhaps that was the intent, but it made me begin skimming. ( )

In [book: Redwall], everyone knows of the famed Martin the Warrior, the founder and most valiant defender of Redwall Abbey. This is the story of how he came to be a legend. Martin is a fantastic character, and his adventures are enthralling. ( )

Martin the Warrior A Tale from Redwall. The book is filled with adventure, pirates, humor, friendships, and good food. This book is fun for all ages young and old.
PS- the ending is tragic. ( )

Mattias is a mouse in a city called RedWall. On day Cluny the scourge attacks RedWall. But luckily they have the huge red walls keeping them safe. What will happen. I reccomend this book to people who like war and mice. ( )

First words
"Amid the deep white winter snow,
Sleeps Mossflow'r until spring,
While snug in Cavern Hole below,
All Redwall's creatures sing.
Old autumn gave us plenty,
Our harvest did not fail,
No plate nor jug is empty,
There's good October ale."

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0441001866, Mass Market Paperback)

Bedrang the Stoat has his evil eyes set on ruling over his own empire, and will do anything to make sure that his ultimate fantasy is fulfilled. But little does he realize that the quiet, nameless mouse he is holding captive will one day turn out to be the heroic and fearless Martin the Warrior.

Brian Jacques uses the full force of his stunning storytelling talent to unravel the mystery and adventure that unfolds in this tale of Redwall as a quiet little mouse refuses to bow down to a tyrant and bids to fight for freedom at any cost. Brimming with cutthroat skullduggery and intellectual intrigue, Martin the Warrior is a mountainous tale that introduces the ethos and passions of Redwall with a host of well-drawn characters, each with their own Achilles' heel, making them feel as real as they are magical. --Susan Harrison
