4 Stars

Yay! A new Redwall book! This one chronicles the adventures of the predecessors of Redwall. Loamhedge was the place the mice and other nice creatures lived until a plague drove them out of their home. In present dayish, the Redwallers must travel back to the ruined abby to discover a secret of great value. Brian Jaques follows his normal formula with a riddle, a quest, and at least one major character dying, but this time he’s able to weave them together effortlessly and cause the reader to fall in love with the new creatures. I cried. I always give an extra star for tears.
