Book Description

Sept. 4 2007 Redwall (Book 15)
The thirteenth tale in the highly popular Redwall series, now in paperback.

“Peace has gone on too long. Something inside me says that trouble such as these shores have never known is headed our way.”

Salamandastron, under the guardianship of old Lord Stonepaw, is under threat from an enemy of immense and terrifying power. Ungatt Trunn, the wildcat who can make the stars fall from the sky, has attacked with his Blue Hordes and is determined that the fortress should be his. The mountain’s defenses are weak and it seems that nothing can stand in his way. Nothing, that is, but the badger Lord Brocktree, who is drawn to Salamandastron by an undeniable sense of destiny. But if he is to rescue the mountain from Trunn and his verminous hordes, he must gather about him an army capable of defeating them in battle.

Product Description

From Amazon

'This is a big work,' says the badger Lord Russano of Salamandastron about his latest historical manuscript. 'I've been two seasons now, reading through dusty old parchments, interviewing creatures for stories about their ancestors, and studying carvings in the forge. I've sat on the shore, listening to sea otters, stood beneath trees recording squirrels--huh, I've even had to crouch for four days in a mole dwelling.'
But fans of Brian Jacques' novels should be thankful that so much trouble was taken over this, the thirteenth slice of his triumphant Redwall saga. It is another gloriously chivalrous and swashbuckling adventure--recounted to the young future of the kingdom by its respected badger guardian. From the moment Russano pulls the first scroll from his pail of scripts, he has every eye and ear's attention.

He begins a story about Salamandastron from back in the mists of time, further back than even he would dare to guess. The mountain, with its leveret school, Long Patrol and laws set down for all to live in peace by, was largely down to the work of one badger--Lord Brocktree of Brockhall. Other badgers were there before him, but the mountain did not come into its own until Brocktree arrived. He inspired their wonderful life of comfort--the wonderful chambers, the outer gardens and terraces, orchards and crop-growing areas.

But his before his triumph there was struggle. Together with a scatterbrained but irrepressible haremaid called Dotti, Brocktree had to rescue Salamandastron from the threat of vermin rule at the hands of Ungatt Trunn--a vile and evil wildcat with a frighteningly dangerous army of Blue Hordes at his disposal.

The stage is set for a glorious battle, and Jacques delivers a breathtaking denouement with all of his characteristic verve and excitement. Fans will relish this book and new readers will be drawn into its pages--probably to be hooked forever. (Age 9 and over) --John McLay --This text refers to the Audio Cassette edition.

From School Library Journal

Grade 5 Up-Jacques shows no signs of flagging in this latest tale about a Badger Lord named Brocktree, a fatally beautiful haremaid named Dotti, and an evildoing wildcat named Ungatt Trunn. Trunn and his Hordebeasts have invaded Salamandastron and caused the death of Lord Stonepaw. However, from off in the forests and meadows, help is coming. The shrews, hedgehogs, moles, river and sea otters, squirrels, and a pack of Highland hares band together with Brocktree and Dotti. Trunn is eventually defeated, and the Horde quickly disperses, leaving the "Redwall" creatures to their favorite pastimes-dancing, singing, and of course, eating. Jacques continues to have an amazing gift for keeping his story fresh. He starts this one from two different points: the invasion, and the adventures of Dotti, Brocktree, and their friends. The two stories converge near the end of the book for a thrilling conclusion. The story itself is framed as a history written by the current lord of Salamandastron. The plot is well balanced, chapters of floating on a river and feasting with friends are set in counterpoint with the horrors of war. The characters, as always, are easily defined and identified by their accents, a Jacques specialty. It may take some readers a while to figure out what everyone is saying, but they will make the effort as these beasts are all so engaging. There is no need to have read the earlier books for this one to make sense, but new readers will undoubtedly be asking for more, and fans will just eat it up.

3.0 out of 5 stars Few surprises July 5 2004
By Purity
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Extreme Badger March 29 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Redwall's Lucky 13 Nov. 6 2003
By Brian
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Lord Brocktree is by far the best book in the Redwall series. It is filled with action, adventure, danger, death, destruction, courage, and freedom. Ungatt Trunn and his Blue Hoardes of wildcats have invaded the mountain of Salamandastron, leaving it up to Lord Stonepaw, his son Lord Brocktree and their friends Dotti the haremaid and Ruff the otter to save everybeast in Redwall from certain death and destruction. I thought this book was very well written, with graphic war scenes, strong (yet not obscene) language, admirable protagonists, and an unforgettable ending. Brian Jacques is at his peak of genius with Lord Brocktree.
"Stay steadfast in hope, courage, and determination, and even the impossible becomes possible". I believe this statement best sums up the theme presented in this work. I rate this as a 4-star book because even though the writing style and flowing plot made it an exciting enjoyable read, it was confusing to follow sometimes with so much happening at once. For any fan of medieval style society, epic battles, and a clever tale sure to keep you turning pages, I recommend Lord Brocktree by Brian Jacques.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Fun Book, Sah! June 6 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I purchased this book because my friends were reading other books in the Redwall series, and they told me this was one of the best. I though it was a little ridicoulus, though. I mean, that is a giant badger on the front with a sword in the middle of a war scene. But I got it because of their sheer encouragement, and read it all, and was quite impressed. The pace is quick and the story is delightful. The mountain of Salmandastron is inhabitaed by very old hares, badgers and other peaceful critters. All the young beasts have went elsewere, so the mountain is very vulernable to attack, if attack were to ever happen. Lord Stonepaw, the Badger Lord, sits and withers away more and more day by day at the top, but that all changes when strange events happen up until the great wildcat conquerer, Ungatt Trunn, comes and invades the mountain! Lord Brocktree sends his hare Fleescut to find reinforcements before Trunn's attack begins, and that start his adventure through Jukka The Sling, and much more. Elsewhere, Brocktree of Brockhall stumbles into young Dotti, the "fatal beauty", and they head to the mountain together. Brocktree goes because he feels he needs to, and Dotti goes because she is sent away from her parents to her Aunt, who lives on the mountain. Now, this book starts with four main character's adventures: Lord Brocktee & Dotti's quest towards Salmandastron, Fleescut & Jukka Sling's finding reinforcements, the older beasts and Stonepaw escape from the invaded mountain, and Ungatt Trunn's daily visions of the horrible Badger Lord coming for him. In the end, they all meet (except for Trunn) and form a plan for winnign back Salmandastron. I won't say any more about the book because I fear I've already said too much, but I suggest you check this and other Redwall books out if you like fun, perilous adventure books.
