What secrets lie in the ruins of Loamhedge? When young haremaid Martha Braebuck arrived at Redwall Abbey, she was unable to walk - and no beast knows why. The answer lies far away - at the ancient, ruined abbey of Loamhedge. And two old Redwall warriors, Bragoon and Sarobando, are determined to help. But as they leave, a murderous band of Searats is heading for Redwall Abbey - and their leader, Raga Bol, is a mighty vicious beast. One brave badger, Lonna Bowstripe, wants revenge on Bol and his crew - and the fate of Redwall, and young Martha Braebuck, will depend on him.

Reviews

Gr 5 Up-Loamhedge (Philomel, 2003), Book 16 in Brian Jacques Redwall series, is populated with the usual cast of furry friends and foes. Adventuring otter Braggon and his companion, Sarobando, return to Redwall Abbey briefly before heading off on a quest to help young hare, Martha Braebuck, regain the use of her legs. At the same time, Lonna Bowstripe, an archer/badger has set out to avenge a friend's death, and two bands of rats, stoats, foxes, and other vermin have laid siege to the Abbey. There's even an eerie pack of nighttime worshippers who remind listeners that Loamhedge sounds a lot like Stonehedge. Jacques narrates the story with a versatile and enthusiastic cast of 14 actors whose authentic accents are occasionally hard to understand. Lively songs throughout add to the recording, but it's mildly disconcerting that their instrumental accompaniment is rarely based on the text. The popularity of the Redwall series makes this a logical purchase for all school and public libraries.-Barbara Wysocki, Cora J. Belden Library, Rocky Hill, CT Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

Brian Jacques's Redwall carries on with Loamhedge, a deserted abbey that a wheelchair-bound young hare-maid thinks could hold a cure to her lame condition. Two warriors traveling back to Redwall agree to seek out the legendary place, but unwittingly leave Redwall Abbey vulnerable to vermin intruders. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
