A hastily assembled band of shrews, hedgehogs, and squirrels, led
by a detachment of hares from the Long Patrol, marches out to
defend Redwall Abbey from a horde of vicious rats in Jacques's
latest installment (The Pearls of Lutra, p. 59, etc.). Under a new
Firstblade, Damug Warfang, the thousand Rapscallions left after a
failed assault on Long Patrol headquarters at Salamandastron set
their sights on Redwall Abbey when they learn its southern wall is
in desperate need of repair. Fortunately for the abbey's peaceful
residents and many younglings, a platoon of the Long Patrol,
including frisky new recruit Tamello De Fformelo Tussock, arrives
to coordinate defense, and so does a relief column from
Salamandastron. Jacques uses the winning formula developed in his
earlier books, pitting treacherous, stupid, bloodthirsty woodland
predators against heroic, commonsensical - and mostly vegetarian -
good guys; opening with skirmishes, ballads, and feasts described
in loving detail; breaking off, though never for long, for more
meals and songs; building up to a climactic, seesaw battle; then
finishing with a wedding, more feasting and verse, and a
long-delayed homecoming. Fans will find characters and connections
from previous books, the familiar thick dialect, delicious
language, dashing action, and the comforting happy ending they've
learned to expect. (Kirkus Reviews)
