This is a cross of adventure, chivalry, and friendship that only Jacues would conjure up. From the moment I picked it up, until the moment I put it down, I was entranced in a spellbinding story that took me to a place that was filled with magic and wonder. Only Jacues' next book could be so captivating.

By the time one has read twelve books in the Redwall series, he has a pretty good idea where he's going to be by the end of the thirteenth journey. And, indeed, by the end of Lord Brocktree, our horde of characters were exactly where I expected them to be: standing victorious on the shores of Salamandastron, not really too devastated over any losses, very cheerful about new friends made, and even more cheerful about the dozens of feasts put away.
Lord Brocktree opens with a salvo of extremely slow chapters; in fact, the first part, by itself, almost isn't worth the read. It begins long ago, before Redwall, before Martin the Warrior, even before the famous hare Long Patrol, when Salamandastron, guarded only by the ancient badger Lord Stonepaw and his retinue of equally aged and feeble hares, is placed under siege by the wildcat conqueror Ungatt Trunn the Earth Shaker. The mountain's only hope is the arrival of Stonepaw's son Brocktree, who is journeying from faraway Brockhall to take his place as ruler of Salamandastron.
Joined on his trek by a "fatally beautiful" haremaid, an otter, a mole, a battalion of mountain hares (with that delightful Highland accent), a gang of squirrel mercenaries, and a tribe of hedgehogs, Brocktree manages to get himself to the mountain in one piece just in time to give badger-sized warfare to the cunning Ungatt Trunn.
The story holds few surprises, especially for those who've already lived through Jacques's previous works. It suffers from an overabundance of characters, far too much time spent journeying, and several passionless battle scenes. However, it is redeemed by a typically witty and amusing grouping of hares and one of the best villains in Redwall lore.

By Lord Brocktree on June 8 2004
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Lord Brocktree is one of my favorite books. It beats all the other Redwall books, and I will tell you why in this review.
This book seems ultimate, as in everything is x100. The huge hordes of Ungatt Trunn, The massive Brocktree, and the hopelessness of when Stonepaw was lord. The only part I don't like is that Redwall wasn't around yet, so there aren't the huge feasts like thy are in some other 14 Redwall books.
I strongly recommend you to read this book first, as it is first in the chronological order of Redwall.
Have a good read!!

This book was a okay book but not a great book. I think this because the plot of the story is very good and the setting really paints a good picture for you. But the characters are kind of strange and Brian Jacques doesn't really give good descriptions. Also i feel that the story skips around a lot and making you feel that something is missing. Because of all of these reasons i have to give Lord Brocktree by Brain Jacques a 3 out of 5 stars.

The first reason I liked this book is hoe detailed the character's actions were. Also how they thought and looked like. Another reason I liked it is the sheer numbers of characters there was and there were more and more by the chapter. I disliked part of it becuase it had such a slow begining.
I think the best part in this book is when lord Brocktree falt Ungatt Trunn. The match looked pretty even. Then Brocktree stabbed Trunn through his breastplate the Brocktree was shot by an arrow but
that didn't bother him one bit he still killed Trunn.
The most vivid part of this story was the characters, the last fighting part, what the charaacters looked like, and how the talked.

Lord Brocktree is a Badger. A badger lord. In the book, Lord Brocktree had a very large obstacle he had to overcome before he could rule as a true Badger lord. He had to overcome the powerful foe, Ungnatt Trunn. Ungnatt Trunn was a strong wild cat in his prime and had previously taken over the mountain Salamandastron from Lord Brocktree's father, who was the previous ruler of the mountain. Lord Brocktree needed in order to gain the mountain, a massive army of willing animals who would fight the forces of Ungnatt Trunns vermin troops. While looking to complete his task, Lord Brocktree stumbled over a few other animals associated with powerful forces in other parts of the land. In fair challenges, Lord Brocktree and his friends gained the respect of many others and would begin to prepare his army.
I enjoyed this book because, most of the time, I would find it fairly stupid to be reading about animal adventures. The author however had critically described traits of every creature throughout the book making it enjoyable. The creatures dialect was very diverse and it took me a second try at some parts to understand the speaking of some of the animals. The book is a very creative story and the action is very descriptive. It is very easy to get a hold of what kind of personality and backgrounds the characters come from this story does a very good job at bringing back the old good versus evil theme.
I learned through the book that sometimes if you want to make something eye catching and much more exciting, just changing the way you have your characters speak will make it much more dramatic. I also got a taste of the technique of writing where the author writes two or more different scenes and switches back and forth between them throughout different chapters.
