The charming Redwall stories continue in "The Legend of Luke," which brings back some of the beloved (but not forgotten!) characters from earlier in the series. Brian Jacques' magnificent story telling weaves this tale of heroic adventure and woe.
This book is great! It was the first of the Redwall series that I read and I have been hooked ever since.
This was ok. I read most of the Redwall and they are all pretty much the same book. This one tells about Luke. Not a bad yarn.
The beauty of Redwall stories is that they have a strong exciting adventure in a moral context with none of the witchcraft and wizardry that some people object to in other fantasy literature. They make excellent reading for children from 11 to 13. Other than Martin the warrior and Mossflower they tend to be a bit canned because all the others are at heart stories about how Redwall Abbey thrives and prospers un-endingly. We rarely suspend expectation as to whether the good guys will win and evil will cease to prosper. But for the kids at the right stage, the stage before their tastes mature to more serious literature, beyond the world of 'chapter books', the Legend of Luke, like the rest of Redwall, is a good read.
Redwall's champion, Martin the Warrior, embarks on a dangerous journey to the northland shore to trace the legendary exploits of his father, Luke. This book is a great read. It grabs your attention and keeps it throughout the story.
good series for any age. A little "cutsie for adults, but I liked them enough to read several of the titles and to keep the earliest books for my granddaughters to read in a couple of years.
This was one of Brain Jaques' best books ever!
My son is reading all the books in this series. He thinks the books are great.
