Synopsis: In the fourteenth Redwall adventure, by New York Times bestselling author Brian Jacques, the clan of Sawney Rath kidnaps one of Redwall's own-a baby otter, who they believe is destined to become their Taggerung: the warrior hero of ancient legend. But as the young Taggerung grows, he rebels against his destiny and goes off in search of the place he was born-a home he can barely remember. As the young otter journeys to distant lands, a member of Sawney's clan is close on his heels, out to destroy the deserter and claim for his own the title of Taggerung. With a new friend, a feisty little mouse named Nimbalo, the rugged warrior staves off the avenging vermin, but can he find his way back to Redwall and to the family from whom he was separated so long ago?
Review: Brian Jacques's 14th fantasy in the popular Redwall series exceeds expectations in this suspenseful tale of good versus evil where the nefarious vermin seek to destroy the peace-loving mice, moles, shrews, and otters of Redwall Abbey. The villainous Sawney Rath clan of rats, weasels, foxes, and ferrets believe Deyna, an otter born of the community at Redwall, is their Taggerung, a great warrior destined to lead them. Members of the Sawney Rath clan kidnap Deyna from his home as a young otter, but to no avail. As Deyna grows, he embarks upon a search for his true family at Redwall.
As ever, the master storyteller's language lends his swashbuckling adventures a mysterious and magical quality, as well as a hint of the Old World as the characters address each other with thees and thous. Hearkening back to medieval times, Jacques presents a tale of courageous warriors and grotesque evildoers alike, each group journeying toward conflicting ends. Danger, fear, action, heroism--Taggerung is an intense page-turner with startling plot twists that will keep readers on their toes. (Ages 9 to 15) --Yvonne Schindler
