On the Isle of Sampetra, Emperor Ubla, better known as Mad Eyes, sends his lizard army on a mission to capture Redwall. Meanwhile the inhabitants of Redwall are on a mission of their own--to solve the six fiendishly difficult riddles which will lead them to the rose-coloured gems, the Pearls of Lutra. As they get closer to solving to riddles, the lizards get closer to Redwall and a battle to the death begins.
One of the excellent fantasy adventure series about the mystical Redwall and the colourful cast of characters that have embroidered themselves into the soul of Brian Jacques writing, The Pearls of Lutra is a magical, mind-blowing adventure that never disappoints. Jacques expertly weaves his web of intrigue through the pages, capturing the imagination with a stroke of a pen as if he were a wizard with a wand. Challenging, colourful and, most importantly, readable to the point of addiction, The Pearls of Lutra is an absolute must. (9 years and over) --Susan HarrisonReview:
