I finished this "second" book in the Redwall series this afternoon. This is technically a prequel to the first story, telling the story of Martin the Warrior and his quest to Salamandastron. Meahwhile the woodlanders back home are busy trying to free Mossflower woods from the evil tyranny of Tsarmina the wildcat. This book is just as endearing as the first book in the series, and it's fun to read about the ancestors of the crew we met in Redwall. There's not too much else to say about this book; it's really quite similar to the first in terms of style, and to some extent, plot, but it's a fun read for the lazy summer before classes start.
violent but awesome! Not for young kids
Another cute story and interesting read.
The second book in the Redwall series, Moosflower is just as good as the first. Going back to the days of the famed Martin the Warrior, when the evil wildcat queen, Tsarmina, held Mossflower Woods in her sway, this is the tale of how Martin helped to free the land and build Redwall Abbey. It is also the story of how he got his legendary sword.
My children love this series. Action, adventure, honor, and integrity. What a great read.
