His genius lies in his ability to capture character and atmosphere with a stroke of a pen, drawing the reader in until the only way to start breathing again is to finish the book.

The young badger Mara runs away with her best friend, Pikkle Ffolger, from her home, the mountain of Salamandastron, displeased with her adoptive father Urthstripe's stern authority. Urthstripe is a Badger Lord of Salamandastron and rules his mountain with a firm paw. Kindhearted, he is also stubborn and, although he worries about his daughter's safety, he refuses to run after her.

The inhabitants of Redwall relax in the haze of summer-but as they do, the neighboring stronghold of Salamandastron lies besieged by the evil weasel army of Ferhago the Assassin. Worse still, Mara, beloved daughter of Urthstripe, Badger Lord of the Fire Mountain, is in terrible danger. Then a lightning bolt uncovers the sword of Martin the Warrior, and young Samkin embarks on an adventure that leads him to Mara. Can the good creatures triumph over the villainous Assassin?

I had hoped that 'good' meant better than what I received. This book was not in the best of shape and I would have said it was acceptable. For the price, it was not worth 'good'.

The story was enjoyable overall, but I missed Jacques' presence in the Audible narration. Additionally, I found some of the more shrill voices harder to understand this time around.

Salamandastron is easily one of my favorite books in the Redwall series. It has a great cast of characters and probably my favorite villain of any Jacques novel. The story, while not extraordinarily unique by Redwall standards, was robust and very enjoyable, not yet having fallen into the formulaic pattern noticeable in some of Jacques' later novels.

I was never much into audiobooks, but after being gifted the original Redwall audiobook and falling in love with the superb voice acting and narration, I wanted more. Salamandastron did not live up to the expectations that Redwall had given me. Redwall was narrated by Brian Jacques, and the main character was played by his son. Many of the other characters had well-known and very skilled actors. Salamandastron is not so much this way: many of the main characters, such as Ferahgo, Thrugg and Pikkle, have downright irritating voice actors (especially Pikkle). Many others, like Mara and Urthstripe, simply lacked the emotion and resolve in their voices that I'd expect from the characters. Some voices did stand out as being exceptional, such as Klitch, but the "exceptional" actors in this audiobook were few and far between. It's not bad overall, but if you're looking to buy this book after listening to Redwall, you are likely to be somewhat disappointed.
Not-the-Same
The tale of salamandastron is a simple one. An evil weasel warlord wishes to gain power and wealth by conquering the legendary stronghold Salamandastron. Mixed in some returning friends new allies some traveling and you have the basic idea of the story. The writing is not excellent but the whole idea of this world on which the dominating creatures are animals is very intruiging. Brian Jacques weaves a very good story for young children. While one of the main faults of the story is that it is predictable. It is incredibly similar to so many of the other books in the series. So much time is spent talking about food and other smaller matters. But it remains fun. The only other fault is that characters are either good or evil. It is a monochrome world. Black and white good and evil. There seems to be no gray area as there truely would be. But for an enjoyable book. This is definatly one to read.

Another huge hit in the Redwall series. I believe that Brian Jacques has really combined the two main parts of Redwall books in this one:Quests and Major Battles (or wars). I would recommend this book to any Redwall fan.
