Badrang the Tyrant stoat, the evil Lord of the Eastern Coast, has forced captive slaves to build his fortress, Marshank. Among these slaves is an indomitable young mouse called Martin who, together with his friends Felldoh and Brome, escapes from the fortress, aided by Rose of Noonvale and Grumm the mole. So begins a tale of adventure love, treachery and deceit. The action is fast and furious scattered with characters like Cap'n Tramun Clogg, Ambella and her Pygmy shrews, and the Rambling Rosehip Players. A stirring yarn with all Brian Jacques' usual ingredients of feasts, rhymes, songs, battles and humour, and starring a legendary Redwall hero: MARTIN THE WARRIOR!

Bedrang the Stoat has his evil eyes set on ruling over his own empire, and will do anything to make sure that his ultimate fantasy is fulfilled. But little does he realize that the quiet, nameless mouse he is holding captive will one day turn out to be the heroic and fearless Martin the Warrior.
Brian Jacques uses the full force of his stunning storytelling talent to unravel the mystery and adventure that unfolds in this tale of Redwall as a quiet little mouse refuses to bow down to a tyrant and bids to fight for freedom at any cost. Brimming with cutthroat skullduggery and intellectual intrigue, Martin the Warrior is a mountainous tale that introduces the ethos and passions of Redwall with a host of well-drawn characters, each with their own Achilles' heel, making them feel as real as they are magical. --Susan HarrisonFrom the Inside Flap:

A shadow has fallen on the shore of the Eastern sea, a shadow called Marshank. In this cold stone fortress a stoat named Badrang holds dozens of innocent creatures as slaves, part of his scheme to build an empire where he will rule as unquestioned tyrant.
Among those slaves is a mouse named Martin who has a warrior's heart, and a burning desire for freedom?freedom not ony for himself, but for all of Badrang's victims. There is no risk he will not take, no battle he will not fight, to end the stoat's evil reign, and in the process regain the sword of his father, Luke the Warrior?the sword that Badrang stole from him when he was but a lad.
Once again master storyteller Brian Jazques has crafted an epic advewnture and filled it to the bursting point with unforgettable characters, including villians so hilariously evil you'll barely be able to keep from hissing them, and loveable woodland creatures so brave you'll want to stand and cheer as they fight for their freedom.
