Amazing... as always

How Brian Jacques continues to pull this off I will never know. This book had me tense and angry one moment, then feeling all warm and mushy the next, only to have me on the point of tears the next and in-between this rollercoaster of emotion I was frequently left laughing myself silly.

From heroes you love to vileness you just love to hate, not to mention the plethora of other characters ?The Sable Queen? is a story that will have you gripped from the off set. And is filled with a cast whose exploits you can?t help but want to follow. With fights between good and evil, evil and evil there is more than enough intrigue to keep anyone happy. Not to mention the odd fight between good and good, there?s nothing quite like the relationship between father and daughter.

Yet another terrific Redwall book that will delight, both, fans and newcomers alike.

Beyond reproach

This is a fabulous recording which has occupied us for many a car journey and had us laughing out loud and fully captivated.

A real bonus is the music, which sounds like a folk band in general but is a regular re-grouping of different instruments to suit the context. When reading the other books in the series, I have never really enjoyed the verses much - although I appreciated why they were there - but this was my first Jacques audiobook and the rendition of the ditties brings such a magic to the story that I can't praise their inclusion enough. I'm hoping the tracks are available somewhere on a CD.

The cast do their accents brilliantly, so if you love a rip-roaring tale, go for it.
