Overview

New York Times bestselling author Brian Jacques masterfully recounts more woodland adventures in the seventh epic in the Redwall series!

It has been four seasons since Mariel, the warrior-mouse daughter of Joseph the Bellmaker, and her companion, Dandin, set off from Redwall to fight evil in Mossflower. Nothing has been heard of them since. Then one night, in a dream, the legendary Martin the Warrior comes to the Bellmaker with a mysterious message. Clearly, Mariel and Dandin are in grave danger. Joseph and four Redwallers set off at once to aid them. As they push over land and sea, they cannot know the terrible threats they face. Will the Bellmaker and his companions arrive in time to help Mariel and Dandin?

Another enjoyable adventure in the Redwall series. Not being a junior adult reader, but a senior who likes to read such fiction, I find these stories simply entertaining and relaxing reading. A simple and refreshing way to spend a few hours of fantasy, not a bad way to leave the hectic world of reality.

This is a beautiful work of fiction that cleverly intertwines important values such as selflessness, love, and courage in a brilliantly vivid animal world. If I am ever to have children, I will definitely try my best to get them interested in Brian Jaques's Redwall books.

This is a tale about Joseph the Bellmaker and how he finds is daughter and defeats Urgan Nagru. Joseph has a dream that his daughter, Merial, and her friend Dandin are in trouble. He sets off to find them but has to go south across the ocean. He meets Finbarr Galedeep, and they sail south. Mariel and Dandin are captured by Urgan Nagru and his horde rats. They must escape and raise an army to fight the enemy. Joseph finally lands in Southsward and goes to get Merial. They both meet and they fight and retake Southsward. This is a awesome book. I have read Brain Jacpues books for awhile and this is one of the best. I like how there are a bunch of little stories inside of the one big one. Brain Jacpues is always very descriptive. He can take half a page to describe the country side. My favorite character is Rab Steambattle the heroic otter. I also like Baggut because he was evil then turned nice. This is a amazing book the everyone should read.

When I choose this book I saw that there were mice and otters on the cover. The mice and otters were carrying swords so I thought the book would have a lot of excitement in it. I figured there would be plenty of sword fights and exciting travels. After I reviewed all this I knew that this book would be full of action. I love action packed stories. In the book, a dead mouse gives riddles to mice in their dreams. He is a special mouse who built Redwall abbey. He gave Joseph The Bellmaker a riddle so that the Redwallers could help fellow mice Mariel and Dandin. The other mice try to help figure out the riddle also. When they finally figure it out, five mice need to go and help the others in trouble, but one will not come back. When I read this I thought that Joseph wasn't going to come back but I was wrong. Instead one of their friends that they meet on their journey died in action. Now this is all I'll tell you, you'll have to find the rest out on your own. If you read this story, you may agree with me that it is the best action story you have ever read. Make sure when you read it, you have plenty of uninterrupted time because you won't want to put the book down. It is a real page turner. This book is great animal fiction. I recommend it for ages 11 to 14 years of age. Don't be surprised on how the book turns out, just read the story.

The Bellmaker is one of my favorites, along with its prequel Mariel of Redwall. My favorite part of the book is the vivid characters. It is unusual to have so many characters in two Redwall books, as Brian Jaques typically spaces them farther apart in time. But it is a treat to get to know new characters like Finnbarr Galedeep and King Gael and his friends, while catching up with old familiars like Tarquin and Hon Rosie and their 12 leverets, and the now Abbott Saxtus, and of course Dandin and Mariel. This book ventures outside of Mossflower woods to Southsward, a place just as magical. Readers will be rewarded with a sweet, emotional, and exciting story.
