Although my copy was missing pages; I went ahead and finished the book. Another good story by Brian Jacques, although not nearly as good as "Redwall" or "Martin the Warrior" ( )

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! ( )

A young stoat is taken in by the saintly woodland creatures of Redwall, who raise him as best they can. But his "true nature" is always making itself known--he plays lots of cruel pranks and keeps lying and stealing. At last, he runs away to seek his fortune elsewhere. The story follows several Redwall creatures as they go off on their own adventure; eventually they encounter the earstwhile stoat once more, who has joined with a band of ruffians. Fighting ensues, and the stoat throws himself into the path of an arrow to save his foster-mother. THEY DO NOT MOURN HIM. Because, you see, he didn't *really* mean to save her--he was just acting impulsively as always. WTF?

Years later, just thinking about the unfairness of this book drives me to clench my fists with rage. I have never read another Redwall book. ( )

[Outcast of Redwall] is another well plotted story from Redwall world of [[Brian Jacques]]. I like how he ties this story back to earlier ones, providing generational history of badgers and mice. Highly entertaining reading, with distinctive personalities for moles, shrews, ferrets, foxes, mice, hedgehogs, and badgers. Aside from his characterization and plotting, Mr. Jacques provides amusing descriptions of the various foods the anthropomorphic animals eat. He also creates a variety of songs and poems for his characters to sing and recite. This book is enjoyable for all ages. ( )

Book review by David H.. posted by CA Library:

"The Outcast of Redwall by Brian Jacques is the eighth novel in the Redwall series. The novel is fiction it is about one of the few Badger lords, Snunflash the Mace, that appear in the series. When the badger was young he was taken slave by Swartt Six claw the ferret. He escaped one cold night with the help of Skarlath a hawk.

Hunted by Swartt Sixclaw and his horde and accompanied by his new companion Skarlath, Sunflash the Mace travels to the mysterious Badger lord Mountain due to his strange dreams he keeps having. Meeting many creatures, making many friends and fighting many enemies along the way.

I give this book a four out of five stars. I rated this Novel the way I did because of the way the author , Brain Jacques, makes the characters come to life. How when a character is feeling pain you feel sympathy. If the character is triumphed you feel happy for him. I recommend this book to people who like adventure fantasy." ( )

"When blood of weak meets blood of strong,
Reap the whirlwind you have sown,
Beware the lightning summer mark,
Of one whom you have known.
To the Lord who scorns all pity,
Open wide Dark Forest gate,
There a little flower awaits,
One day to seal your fate."
- Nightshade the Seer

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0441004164, Mass Market Paperback)

When ferret Swartt Sixclaw and his arch enemy Sunflash the Mace swear a pledge of death upon each other, a young creature is cruelly banished from the safety of Redwall. As he grows, he seeks revenge on the people of Redwall and finds himself embroiled in a hostile battle with far-reaching consequences.

An epic tale of Redwall from the pen of master storyteller Brian Jacques, Outcast of Redwall is a kaleidoscope of color, range, and emotions that culminates in a bitter contest between good and evil. None of the passion of the earlier Redwall titles is lost, as some of the most cherished landscapes and best-loved characters from previous books are revisited, with a wisdom and clarity that has developed and endured.

On a basic level, this is a marvelous fantasy adventure story. Look deeper and you will find that Outcast of Redwall, along with the other titles in the series, has a divine, enduring quality that ranks it among he best in children's literature. --Susan Harrison
