The murderous Rapscallion army is on the move. Dealt a humiliating defeat by Lady Cregga Rose Eyes, the Badger Lady of Salamandastron, who still pursues them, the Rapscallions are heading inland to take an even greater prize: the peaceful Abbey of Redwall.
The Long Patrol, that fighting unit of perilous hares, is called out to draw them off--and fight them to the death if need be!
It is the young hare Tammo, who has always dreamt of being a member of the Long Patrol, who gets his chance, and who, by fate and happenstance, takes up the lead sword in one of the most ferocious battles Redwall has ever faced. Eulallllllllia! is his cry.
Master storyteller Brian Jacques takes up his powerful pen again, weaving into the high drama and swashbuckling adventure a coming-of-age tale that counts loyalty, spirit, and wisdom as equally essential as a sword to be a great warrior. An inspired and unforgettable addition to the Redwall saga.
