"The celebrated militia of soldiering rabbits known as the Long Patrol has the honor of serving Lady Cregga Rose Eyes, the ruler of Salamandastron. As they set out to defend Redwall Abbey against the Rapscallions and their despicable leader, they're joined by an eager new recruit, a charming young hare named Tamello. Brian Jacques's lavish brogue is appropriate for this enchanting fantasy, but his accent delivered at a fast pace is not easy to follow for listeners unaccustomed to the complex names and whimsical creatures of the Redwall series. A bevy of talented voices adds richness to the colorful animal characters but also can be difficult to understand because of the accents and pace. N.M.C. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
