    This book used to be one of my favorite Redwalls and it honestly still is It may also be the source of my love of young person has nobility unexpectedly thrust upon them; must figure out How Does One Royal? plotlines Or one of the many sources for that Whatever The point is I like this book and yes in many ways Rakkety Tam is objectively better — they were my two favorites ages ago and I still like them nearly the same amount now — but I just really like this I don't know It's like that meme with the cars Part of the thing may be that I've never met an otter I didn't like plus I always love the nautical Redwall books so yeah That's what I've got

    One of the generic Redwall books The characters were even less developed than normal; I think this can be blamed on the fact that there was action taking place in as many as five different locations simultaneously Redwall books usually have only three at once so there were fewer scenes than normal dedicated to each set of characters Tiria annoyed me greatly She was never really a part of the main story because she was just a very young Abbeymaid with no experience In most scenes she had nothing else to do but chat about her destiny with the characters who were actually driving the story She was completely ignorant of everything to do with Green Isle and with warfare except for the occasional use of the sling so she just stood back and looked pretty while other characters got developedBanya another ottermaid who was of a secondary character did a lot for the story I found her infinitely interesting as a battle strategist and a cool collected warrior fighting for her freedom able to keep her calm even after her brother was slain I wish the book had been about her instead She certainly was much capable of being ueenBut I guess that's the most realistic part of the whole book Hereditary monarchies are one of the most absurd forms of government because they give one family the power to rule regardless of its members' abilities If Redwall was real Tiria's rule would be a failure Foreign ueens are inevitably resented

    When autumn's day grows old sad orchard leaves do fall Dawn breaks o'er silent gardens bereft of sweet birdcall Stark winter's dirge then wails until the earth appears white clad 'neath drifted dunes whilst trees bear crystal spears My chamber is a refuge here against the snowbound night a flickering cave of crimson gold made warm by firelight where images are conjured of friends I used to know I battled and I marched with them one dusty long ago I see them now arise again in memory that ne'er will fail Their legend is reborn anew and thus begins my tale —from High Rhulain Brian Jacues continues introducing us to new corners of the Redwall universe This time it's faraway Green Isle ancestral home of the otter clans a land of legend to the denizens of Redwall Abbey who aren't sure the place exists But exist it certainly does and much of the action in High Rhulain is set there Green Isle once was a destination of freedom and joyous community for otters but that changed generations ago when a horde of cutthroat wildcats arrived greedy to steal the peace loving beasts' kingdom The wildcats took a stranglehold on Green Isle forcing the otters into slavery where they continue to be oppressed to this day under the loathsome tyranny of Riggu Felis a warrior cat without conscience Cruel as he always was Riggu Felis's rage is whipped into greater frenzy at the beginning of High Rhulain when a majestic osprey named Pandion Piketalon inflicts horrific wounds on Riggu after he captures and tortures Pandion The bird's razor talons do irreparable damage to Riggu Felis's face disfiguring him for life but this only heightens the sadistic cat's savagery and desire to torment innocent creatures Any weapon is the best weapon as long as ye can use it skillfully and with honour — High Rhulain P 39 Fortunately for the downtrodden otter population they have a champion whom Riggu Felis cannot ignore Leatho Shellhound and his band of perilous outlaw otters are too smart to get caught operating on the periphery of Riggu Felis's Green Isle fortress to slay wildcat guards and free otter slaves Leatho's comrades are a boisterous bunch loudly celebrating their small victories and thumbing their noses at the wildcat overlords who can't neutralize the threat they pose but there's an underlying seriousness to their work As long as hundreds of otters remain captive in Riggu Felis's palace the enemy possesses all the leverage But otter lore from a long ago era prophesied the delivery of the clans from their oppressors with the coming of a ueen known as the High Rhulain a military strategist and charismatic personality capable of confronting evil and leading her fellow otters to victory Leatho Shellhound and his rogue followers await the emergence of that ueen now for at no time in the history of Green Isle has there been a worse threat to the existence of its otter inhabitants How much longer do they have to wait for their High Rhulain? Within the peaceful walls of Redwall Abbey a young ottermaid named Tiria Wildlough grows restless She loves living with her friends in the abbey but can't shake the feeling that she's destined for That instinct is confirmed when Redwall's storied champion of yesteryear the mouse known as Martin the Warrior appears to Tiria in a dream and offers a vague yet undeniable mandate for her future The abbey residents put their heads together to discern the dream's meaning for Martin the Warrior never speaks without urgent purpose Digging through long forgotten historical records in musty old corners of the abbey the Redwallers are on the right track to discovering Tiria's special destiny but fate will not allow Tiria to wait until all is revealed before taking her place where she is needed as the leader prophesied to the otters of Green Isle Leaving her friends to solve the rest of the puzzle Tiria embarks on a journey toward the island of her forefathers' birth beyond the forbidding Western Sea May fair winds attend thee always may thy days be bright and long may good weapons ever serve thee may thy limbs wax fleet and strong I will dream of thee by moonlight I will watch for thee by day until on thy returning I will come to thee and say 'Drink ye the wine of victory now lay aside thy sword for home and hearth and friendship are the warrior's reward' — High Rhulain P 265 As Leatho Shellhound's gang does its best to thwart the encroaching brutality of Riggu Felis against his otter slaves Tiria makes her way over land and sea meeting spectacular and outrageous allies and foes Stocking up on supplies at the mountain fortress Salamandastron she departs with dozens of plucky hare warriors to aid her rescue mission setting sail across the Western Sea in the direction of Green Isle But the situation there is far different and dire than Tiria anticipated Civil war is broken out within Riggu Felis's kingdom his wife and two sons feuding over positions of authority and this political unrest has given Leatho Shellhound and his outlaws an opening to attack Riggu Felis has not idly observed the otter offensive however Riggu has maneuvered the outlaw otters into a position that suits him fine readying for the crushing blow against them just as Tiria makes her presence known Now it's a battle to the death for control of Green Isle which could once again become otterdom's peaceful home if they win this most crucial of wars But any combat coup invariably means the loss of lives even individuals we can't imagine our new free society without Where will Tiria her otter kingdom and the stouthearted hares of the Salamandastron Long Patrol be when the dust settles and the death toll is confirmed? Though Tiria finds many allies as she treks toward Green Isle to confront the enemies of her people two stand out as memorable Lord Mandoral badger master of Salamandastron and Major Cuthbert Cuthbert Frunk W Bloodpaw and assorted aliases a renegade hare formerly of the Long Patrol It seems no Redwall warrior is duly commissioned until he or she has been in the presence of a Salamandastron badger lord a tradition dating back to at least Martin the Warrior and the origin story of his immortal sword We know we're witnessing new legends being formed whenever a Redwall warrior visits Salamandastron and Tiria's tenure with Lord Mandoral is a watershed moment of High Rhulain Major Cuthbert on the opposite end of the spectrum is one of the strangest hares in any Redwall novel but his is a sad and compelling tale of a goodnatured beast driven mad by a senseless murder yet a hero through and through despite his extreme eccentricities High Rhulain would not be the same book without Major Cuthbert and his almost supernaturally powerful contribution to Tiria's charge against the stronghold of Riggu Felis High Rhulain isn't the best Redwall book but I'd consider giving it two and a half stars Brian Jacues's writing is pearlescent of course the descriptive language lush and sensual but that's expected by any longtime reader of the series There's some good unpredictable action in High Rhulain characters with potential to be among the most memorable in all the annals of Redwall and the story has its poignant moments Though in my opinion the Redwall series reached its peak in the first eight installments it is worth continuing to read even eighteen books in and I wouldn't miss volume nineteen Eulalia There's no reading experience uite like Redwall

    The late Brian Jacues dedicated this entry of his Redwall series to his friend Alan Ingram whom he terms the guardian at Redwall's gate A poem about autumn follows with plenty of good poetry as always throughout the book its main action opening on Green Isle where the Warlord of the Green Isle Cats Riggu Felis makes his home and has a pine marten aide named Atunra not to mention scion Jeefra and Pitru Meanwhile back at Redwall Abbey the young Lycian the mouse is Mother Abbess with another of the primary protagonists Tiria the young otter daughter of the Skipper of otters introduced being skilled with a slingSouth in the woods outside the Abbey water rats are on the hunt capturing an eagle whom Tiria emancipates Backstory is afterward revealed about Green Isle where the otterclan Wildlough reigned until the cats came into power Fights occasionally erupt between the vermin and the “good” creatures with the riddle of the Geminya Tome perplexing Redwallers along with Tiria getting a visit from Martin the Warrior a trend in prior installments Overall this is another enjoyable Redwall book even if it does somewhat recycle elements from its predecessors such as the predisposition of specific animals as good or evil and the visitations from Martin the Warrior

    As a teenager I read every Redwall book I could get and bought the new ones as they came out I stopped fairly recently after Lord Brocktree but recently checked out the newest book Eulalia from a library I was so disappointed by it that I hardly dared try any of the others but I did want to determine whether an author I used to love had plummeted downhill recently or had just written one bad book When I read the also recent High Rhulain I was happy to conclude the latterThis is possibly not as good as some of the earlier Redwall books but it has little or none of the awful cheesiness of Eulalia and contains much of the good stuff accurate references to earlier books villains who are actually threatening etc I found the riddles a little annoying and the band of rats hanging around Redwall seemed both convenient and unnecessary but the cats were really pretty good especially Pitru A lot of fun to be had Also for what it's worth this looked like the same edition as the copy of Eulalia I read but had MUCH better copy editing Eulalia was absolutely painfulI do have to wonder at what point did Jacues run out of names? I've noticed that in several of the recent books The early Redwall books have mostly British or Biblical sounding names for the good guys and names like Grubgut and Hangnose for the bad guys which was nice just because one can pronounce and remember them A lot of the bad guys retained their name style in recent books but the good guys switched to names that Jacues seems to have made up and even besides what this does to continuity of the world they just don't seem namey This book had important characters with names like Girry and Brinty I wasn't feelin' it
