I was really hoping when I had heard that this book was called "Loamhedge" that it was more about the long-lost abbey. Unfortunately, I was a little disappointed that it was merely about a journey to the ruins and not a story about it. I had been hoping for some more history of the beginnings of Redwall. Still, the book, like all of Jacques works, is filled with adventure and intrigue, happiness and sadness, danger and more. I proudly add this book to my collection!

Fans of Brian Jacques should be delighted with this latest installment of the Redwall series. As in the fifteen books preceding, LOAMHEDGE is full of mystery, adventure, romance, tragedy, and a myriad of characters we care about. In this book we are introduced to the wheelchair-bound hare named Martha Braebuck. More than anything, Martha would love to walk again, and this possibility comes to her through a vision/dream in which Martin the Warrior gives her some hints concerning the old abbey. If she can uncover these secrets, Martha should be able to lead a normal life.
When she shares her vision with other folks at the Abbey, they all work together to turn this miracle into a reality. This "quest" is helped along by the zany and loving characters of Braggon the otter and Sarobando the squirrel, best friends and former pranksters of the abbey who have been on their own world adventures and are ready and willing for yet another.
As always there are many layers to these stories, as interesting little characters weave in and out, creating subplots and more adventures. They include Martha's mischievous brother Horty --- who runs off with Sarobando and Braggon to help his sister, the evil searat Raga Bol (who holds the abbey under siege) --- and of course, all the fun "Redwallers" who are part of the colorful tapestry of the Redwall series.
Jacques's ability to create these wonderful personalities, evil and good, from animals is the height of skilled anthropomorphic writing. He has a huge following with a web site that is visited by many fans around the world ([...] Outstanding artists lend these books an even greater depth --- all the covers are beautifully done, including this one with Troy Howell's beautiful painting.

This was actually one of the best Redwall books I ever read. Everyone said the series is getting worse. Well... this is better! I loved it. But there is a few typigraphical erroes... but... It is great!

This book is amazingly wrtitten by Jacques. The ending is the most surprising, and I think this book is very moving. I'd recommend it to anyone.

I thought this book was good. It was interesting to read, but nothing els i'm afraid. I think the bad guys in the book was never really developed. (like cluny) They're always killed by another big enemy before their characteristic were developed and they ALL seemed the same thick headed cowardly enemy only with different forms. I think they also die too quickly.
The story also seemed..... recycled. the first part about enemies attacking Redwall (AGAIN) and the second part when the badger looks for the vermin. His story is almost like Sunmace (think that was his name.)
Other then that it was good. Not Brian's best work, but good. But i think he should introduce some new animals, maybe a live wolf etc.

I have loved the Redwall books for a long time. But now, after reading the sixteenth book of the series, the books are getting worse. The villains are no longer vile and ruthless. Martha Braebuck is a goody-goody. The quest to Loamhedge is pointless and gets my favorite characters killed. Lonna is just like all the other badgers in the whole blasted series, except he has a girly name. As for the feasting and songs, same old, same old. It was a decent book in itself, but compared to the rest of the series, not so.
