Product Description

From Amazon

Wot, Wot?! Could it be another epic Redwall tale (tail?) thick with high adventure, heavy accents, and leek-and-turnip pasty from the beloved beast master himself, Brian Jacques? It is indeed, happy readers. Triss, the 15th book in the distinguished and wildly popular animal fantasy series, chronicles the exploits of a brave squirrel maid who travels from the bonds of slavery to the meeting of her destiny as a warrior at Redwall Abbey. Triss the squirrel, Shogg the otter, and Welfo the hedgehog, all slaves to the bloodthirsty royal ferret family of Riftgard, filch a ferret boat and sail away from the murderous clutches of Princess Kurda and her malevolent father, King Agarnu. Swearing revenge, Kurda sets out to recapture her slaves, her evil Ratguard troops reinforced by the pirate fox Plugg Firetail and his band of criminal Freebooters. At the same time, the badger Sagaxus and his bosom friend Bescarum the hare also set sail from Salamanstrom, to seek adventure on the high seas. Meanwhile, back at the abbey, the Redwall inhabitants are being plagued by a mystery that involves a hidden door, a secret code, and three stinking, sinister snake siblings that are picking off the gentle forest folk one by one. Any ardent fan of Redwall knows that what comes next will include sword fights, feasting, raucous good humor, and a thrilling climax. Jacques's fervent followers are rewarded with the author's usual swashbuckling good storytelling, while the newly initiated will read with wide eyes, and quickly go back to hungrily devour the rest of the series. (Ages 10 and older) --Jennifer Hubert --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Do you like serpents? How about giant serpents? Or maybe your taste is for pure white ferrets who are master swordsmaids? Or maybe squirrel master swordsmaids, giant battles, and huge sea voyages? It's all in this book.

In this book there are three slaves called Triss, Shogg and Welfo who escape in a boat. They run into a peaceful island called Peace Island. There they run into a tribe of peaceful hedgehogs. When they leave the island they do not know about something very important . . . PIRATES!!! Meanwhile in Salmandastron, the badger lord's son, Sagaxus, was going on a long trip with his best friend Bescarum the hare. Once they had met Kroova Wave Dog (the sea otter) they were sailing away in the "Stopdog". At Redwall, the dibbuns (little ones) were out picking whortleberries when two of the dibbuns got lost, and found a hollow tree stump. It had a door with these markings on it B OK AL. Inside they found something gold with weird symbols on it, and something terrible . . . Giant snakes!!! Do the two slaves escape the pirates? Do the Salmandastronians return home safely? Do the Redwallers return with their lives? Read to find out.

I think this book is truly awesome and I recommend this book for all kids who love adventure. You may visit Redwall any time you like by reading the book.

Evil. Princess Kurda is a one of the most evil known. She has grown tired of using vegetables to practice her sword fighting on. Now she wants to use the slaves that are rebellious to practice her sword fighting moves.
Triss is the last book in the Redwall series by Brian Jacques. It is the 16th book in that series. The characters in this book are all different. The villains are cruel and pitiless and the heroes are brave and courageous. This book has all kinds of different things in it. It has sword fighting, friends, enemies, attacks, captures and much more. The adventures in this series and book are interesting and they show all of the characters points of view in a story. They all have their own personalities. This makes the story a lot more enjoyable to read.
All of the characters in the Redwall Series are animals. My favorite animal out of all of the characters is the hare. They always say "Wot wot!" and "flipin" and "blinkin." The hares always make me laugh because they eat enormous amounts of food and then say it was a "little morsel of scoff". These books are hilarious and exciting at the same time. Brian Jacques is one of my favorite authors.

Besides 'Mariel of Redwall,' 'Triss' is another book that shows just how brave and strong girls can be. Triss, the main character, is a slave on the island of Riftgard, though bending under the whip of the slavemasters and the evil Princess Kurda,plans a daring esacpe with her friends, the otter Shogg and hedgehog Welfo. I can relate to Triss well; though she's set on avenging her friends, she's not focused on it the whole time. Meanwhile, in Salmandastron, three other friends, Sagax the badger, Scarum the hare, and Kroova the otter, set out from their home for a very different reason; they're bored stiff at home! And in Mossflower Wood, two Dibbuns, Ruggum and Bikkle, discover the legendary Brockhall, home of the Badger Lords. Brian Jacques wrote this book beautifully, and I like how most of the main characters are female. You don't see alot of us as main characters like that, at least, I don't think so. If I could choose five charcters that are my favorite, I'd put Triss, Sagax, Shogg, Scarum, and Grubbage, only because he can't hear half of what Plugg, a Freebooter captain, says. This my favortie book in the Redwall series; when Triss fights Kurda with Martian's sword is my favorite part, and I can't wait to read Brian Jacques latest novel. They are books that are full of courage, fun and imagination. Good thing they got published!

Brian Jacques' novel Triss, the fifteenth book in the Redwall series, is a perfect example of a popular author beating a dead horse. In a word, Redwall has lost its novelty and sparkle, and the author would best abandon it for his other projects, including Castaways of the Flying Dutchman.
I bought Triss because (unlike many of the recent Redwall books) the plot actually sounded interesting. Unfortunately, though Jacques can still set a story quite well, he can no longer take advantage of his own plots. The book was highly predictable, to offset which Jacques filled it with reversals of fate and twists and turns that did not really alleviate its predictability. Similarly, the characters are merely caricatures of Jacques' more memorable creations, and the settings are no longer settings but set-pieces. For instance, Brockhall plays a role in this book, but in an entirely boring way. Also, Jacques now feels compelled to insert a song in virtually every chapter, as well as to repeat descriptions of food verbatim. He also uses the same jokes over and over. That said, there were some genuine laugh-out-loud moments, and I was glad to see that female characters are now evenly placed among warriors and villains, instead of just abbey-dwellers.
I was at one point a diehard Redwall fan, and the first seven books in the series are still some of the best books I own. However, the fire has gone out of Jacques' writing; I do not think any of his Redwall books will ever stir me as much as Mossflower, Salamandastron, or my other favorites did and still do. So save seven bucks and go reread them, or better yet, something else. However, all this being said, I will still probably read the next book in the series, 'Loamhedge,' because I can't quite give up the ghost myself.
