This book is not quite up to par in comparison with the others in the "Redwall" series. They do a lot of traveling in this story..............a lot. It gets a little dull at times. All the action takes place towards the end of the book. However, it did end well.

Jacques does it again, immediately throwing us into a plethora of  Characters that will be strong players in the story of this amazing read! The journey begins off slow introducing Abbot Bernard and Simeon sharing in a conversation of a coming storm, but the calmness ends there it ramps up to introducing gabool the wild the cruelest searat in the world giving him a brief backstory. Though the ends of Gabool’s mention does not end there, In comes mariel the namesake of the novel being thrown around in an indescribably large ocean. Her tale does not end in her drowning though it continues obviously with her being the namesake of the novel.  I liked this book because it has a great storyline much like many other books from Jacques long line of epic tales. If you have read any of the other books in Jacques arsenal you will surely enjoy this tale.
