The inhabitants of Redwall relax in the haze of summer-but as they do, the neighboring stronghold of Salamandastron lies besieged by the evil weasel army of Ferhago the Assassin. Worse still, Mara, beloved daughter of Urthstripe, Badger Lord of the Fire Mountain, is in terrible danger. Then a lightning bolt uncovers the sword of Martin the Warrior, and young Samkin embarks on an adventure that leads him to Mara. Can the good creatures triumph over the villainous Assassin?

"When the stronghold of Salamandastron is threatened by Ferhago the Assassin and his band, the Badger Lord defends his realm fiercely. Jacques's seventh book in the Redwall series is full of battle and quest, plague and feast, enemies and alliances, recollection and fulfillment. The full cast brings richness to this recording. Farran is as poisonous as his deeds while Faith Spinney is jolly and kindhearted. Mara may be headstrong at first, but she grows sagely and respectfully into her new role. Baby Dumble will steal hearts both through deed and voice as he seeks the healing Flowers of Icetor. While the musical chapter interludes detract from the action's flow, the lyrical ballads add to the festivities. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
