A shadow has fallen on the shore of the Eastern sea, a shadow called Marshank. In this cold stone fortress a stoat named Badrang holds dozens of innocent creatures as slaves, part of his scheme to build an empire where he will rule as unquestioned tyrant. Among those slaves is a mouse named Martin who has a warrior's heart, and a burning desire for freedom—freedom not only for himself, but for all of Badrang's victims. There is no risk he will not take, no battle he will not fight, to end the stoat's evil reign, and in the process regain the sword of his father, Luke the Warrior—the sword that Badrang stole from him when he was but a lad. Once again master storyteller Brian Jacques has crafted an epic adventure and filled it to the bursting point with unforgettable characters, including villains so hilariously evil you'll barely be able to keep from hissing at them, and loveable woodland creatures so brave you'll want to stand and cheer as they fight for their freedom.

Superb story and narration

The late, great Brian Jacques is my favorite author, and this particular entry in the Redwall series is arguably the best of them all. Telling the origins of the legendary Martin the Warrior, it is a thrilling tale of heroism, love, and sacrifice.

Jacques had his own radio show on BBC Merseyside, and with his connections there was able to assemble a full cast to create the best audio books possible for his works. Already a fan of the novels themselves, I remember the thrill of finding and buying this as a tape set in the local bookstore when I was a child. It was the first of Redwall story I'd heard as an audio book, and I listened to it all the time. It completely captivated me. The experience is that of a movie without visuals, each character fully brought to life by talented actors including the author, a master storyteller.

I would very highly recommend this audio book. It will always have a special place in my heart.
