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. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 06]
