Mousemaid Mariel is washed up on the beach on the shores of Mossflower. With no idea where she is, or indeed who she is, the young mousemaid embarks on an unforeseen adventure that will take her to the very heart of Redwall and into the arms of the people who live there.
Mariel of Redwall is a captivating and magical adventure story in the Redwall series by Brian Jacques. At times gentle, but mostly packed with adventure and heroism on the grandest of scales, this tale is at once delightful and devastating in its proportions.
As Jacques weaves his customary magic and takes the reader to the heart and soul of the mythical Redwall--welcoming, terrifying, magical and, at times, all too real--the place, the characters and the adventure spring to life in a bout of indefinable magic, mystery and mayhem. An excellent book that will leave readers begging for more. --Susan HarrisonReview:
