What secrets lie in the ruins of Loamhedge? When young haremaid Martha Braebuck arrived at Redwall Abbey, she was unable to walk - and no beast knows why. The answer lies far away - at the ancient, ruined abbey of Loamhedge. And two old Redwall warriors, Bragoon and Sarobando, are determined to help. But as they leave, a murderous band of Searats is heading for Redwall Abbey - and their leader, Raga Bol, is a mighty vicious beast. One brave badger, Lonna Bowstripe, wants revenge on Bol and his crew - and the fate of Redwall, and young Martha Braebuck, will depend on him.

Number sixteen in the esteemed Redwall animal fantasy series, young readers will find Loamhedge just as wild and woolly as its predecessors. In this chapter of the seemingly endless history of the woodland abbey, adventure is sparked by the sad plight of the haremaid, Martha Braebuck. Due to a terrible event that befell her when she was just an abbey Dibbun, Martha has lost the ability to walk. But when legendary mouse Martin the Warrior comes to her in a dream and explains that the secret to winning back her legs lies within the cursed walls of the ancient abbey Loamhedge, Martha hopes for a hero who will travel to the ruins on her behalf. Enter world-class adventurers Braggon the otter and Sarobando the squirrel. The best friends have come for a visit, and decide to undertake Martha’s quest. Yet, just as soon as the two tricksters leave, the peaceful abbey folk fervently wish them back, as Redwall is suddenly under siege from the dread searat Raga Bol and his motley crew of vermin. But even as he endeavors to force the Redwall folk from their cozy nest, Raga Bol is plagued by nightmares of the massive badger archer Lonna Bowstripe, who is coming to end his reign of terror. But will Lonna get to Redwall in time to save the forest folk? And will Martha ever walk again? The only thing that’s certain is that the fur will fly and numerous feasts will be noisily consumed in yet another fur-tastic tale from beloved British storyteller Brian Jacques.
