Book Overview

The young haremaid Dotti and the badger-warrior Lord Brocktree--unlikely comrades--set out for Salamandastron together, only to discover the legendary mountain has been captured by the wildcat Ungatt Trunn and his Blue Hordes. To face them, the two must rally an army--hares and otters, shrews and moles, mice and squirrels--and execute a plan that makes up in cleverness what it lacks in force

Yet Another Epic From The World of Redwall

I first recieved this book as a Christmas gift from my parents earlier this year (I'm 15 years old). I knew nothing about the book, but what brought my parents to buy this book for me was it's author, Brian Jacques. I first read "Redwall" in fall 1999, and since have continued to read all the books he has written in a span of less than a year and a half. So when I recieved "Lord Brocktree" and picked it up later in the day and read it, I did not stop until I went to bed after midnight. I it such a glorious book in so many ways. Finally, we have an epic depicting the life of the First great Badger Lord, Brocktree. I have always been wondering what ever happened to him after I first heard about him in "Mossflower".I will keep on reading Brian Jacque's work until I am stripped of my vision. I can't wait until his next book comes out this fall 2001! I strongly reccomend this book to everyone who wants to get away from modern life and read about what it was like when all modern technology was nothing. After reading one of his books, you'll understand what I mean...

Lord Brocktree

"Lord Brocktree," the latest in the Redwall series, is also one of the best out of the thirteen books. It is about Lord Brocktree, the Badger Lord who was the father of Boar of Brockhall (featured in "Mossflower," also by Brian Jacques) and his quest to recapture the mountain of Salamandastron (the ancestral home of badgers and hares, mentioned in a number of Redwall books) from an evil wildcat named Ungatt Trunn. The book starts when Lord Brocktree's father, the ancient Lord Stonepaw, was almost alone in the extinct volcano of Salamandastron. He had with him 150 hares, which was only a fraction of the number of hares that usually resided in Salamandastron. All of the hares were elderly, and very good at fighting. Then, a ruthless conquerer by the name of Ungatt Trunn arrived at Salamandastron. Trunn was determined to have the mountain for his own. He had a vast army of rats, ferrets, stoats, and weasels at his disposal. They were known as the Blue Hordes because of the dark-blue dye that they stained their fur with. Trunn ordered Lord Stonepaw to leave with some of his hares, and leave the fitter, more able beasts behind to become servants. Stonepaw refused, and Trunn slaughtered half of the hares and imprisoned most of the remaining creatures. Stonepaw escaped with about twenty or so hares. They hid inside the mountain's cellars until they were discovered by Trunn's soldiers. Stonepaw gave up his life in order to allow his faithful followers time to escape. Meanwhile, the title character, Lord Brocktree, has been traveling from his home of Brockhall to Salamandastron. He had recurring dreams in which he learned of the sad state of matters at Salamandastron. He hastened to the mountain to build an army to reclaim Salamandastron from Ungatt Trunn and his Blue Hordes. Along the way he met a young female hare named Dotti, and an otter called Ruff, as well as a strong mole, Gurth. They were joined by a large group of traveling shrews, the Guosim, led by Log-a-Log Grenn. En route to Salamandastron, Brocktree and his friends met an old hare called Fleetscut. Fleetscut had been Lord Stonepaw's best friend on Salamandastron. When trouble arose on the mountain, Stonepaw sent Fleetscut to raise an army and reclaim Salamandastron. The loyal hare set out immediately, but collapsed of thirst and fatigue after nearly two days of running without stopping. He was rescued by a fierce female warrior called Jukka the Sling, and her tribe of squirrels. Jukka and Fleetscut quickly became enemies after Fleetscut accused Jukka of cowardice. He did so because she did not bring her squirrels to the mountain to help the hares fight Ungatt Trunn. Jukka said that she didn't enter the fight because the Blue Hordes outnumbered her tribe far too greatly. Jukka volunteers to accompany Fleetscut on his quest--not out of friendship, but to prove that she is not a coward. (She also wants loot and plunder from the numerous vermin in the Blue Hordes.) A

YEEEEEEEHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh man! I am so thrilled at Brian's new book! He does it again when he ties 3 different happenings together. There is(surprisingly,) no feast! This book happens before Mossflower, and even before Martin the warrior! Read this book now! The greatest book I have read for months!

Lord Brocktree

In this 13th novel of the Redwall series Lord Brocktree, the Badger Lord that forms the Long Patrol and organizes life in Salamandastron is drawn by dreams of the evil wildcat, Ungatt Trunn to the mountain. Acompanied by young and brave Dotti, the two set out meeting friends along the way and tryng to win the battle by using their brains to make up for their numbers. As each book gets better and better, listen as Lord Russano the Wise unravles an extrodinary story

Lord Brocktree

This is the thirteenth book in the redwall series. It is another great book in the redwall series. The story focuses on Lord Brocktree, a badger lord, who is on his journey to rule the mountain stronghold of Salamandastron. Along his way he mets Dotti the young haremaid and Ruff the otter. He also mets several other creatures whom he has adventures with. Meanwhile, at Salamandastron, Lord Stonepaw,Lord Brocktree's father, has to defend the mountain from the evil wildcat named Ungatt Trunn and his evil Blue Hordes. He is a ruthless killer who wants to conquer Salamandastron for himself and his hordes. The last battle in this book is absolutely spectacular. This is easily one of my favorite redwall books. All of the books that are in the redwall series are great. Brian Jacques is one of the best storytellers and this book shows his skill. I recommend this book to anyone ,if your a redwall fan or not, and this is a must have book that everyone should own.
