Sinopsis: A thrilling story of Triss, a young squirrelmaid. She escapes a life of misery as a servant to the tyrannical ruling ferret family in Riftgard and sets off to find her way to the Abbey of Redwall. Parallel runs the tale of two young scamps, the hare Bescarum and the badger Sagaxus, who leave the Fortress of Salamandastron and set off on board ship in search of adventure. The third storyline is about the inhabitants of the Abbey and a threat to their safety. This leads to a frightening and ultimately very satisfying climax as the three threads of the story come together.
Críticas: Brian Jacques' latest fantasy novel, Triss, continues the tradition of great storytelling that he established with his debut novel, Redwall, and as ever is stuffed full of animal adventure, action and suspense. Three separate storylines come together skilfully in this 15th Tale of Redwall to deliver a satisfying read to please both long-established fans of the series and courageous first-timers.
In Riftgard, far from Redwall Abbey, a brave squirrelmaid called Triss is being held captive by the ferret king Agarnu and his cruel daughter Kurda. Guilty of nothing more than wanting their freedom from slavery, Triss, Shogg the otter and Welfo the hedgehog engineer a daring escape and steal the King's purple-sailed ship. Kurda is in pursuit and on their tails immediately, the penalty for capture being death.
In the rugged mountain fortress of Salamandastron, two young badgers called Bescarum and Sagaxus, their backpacks stuffed full of provisions, steal away from their home under the cover of dark. Both crave excitement and are determined to seek fame and fortune in a faraway land. They set sail for Redwall with adventure on their minds.
At Redwall Abbey itself, in the shadow of Mossflower wood, Ruggum the molebabe and Bikkle the little squirrel, have adventure on their minds too. In order to avoid their nightly bath, they sneak outside and head off into the trees. It's only when night falls, and their stomachs grumble, that the plan falls apart. After a restless night under the stars, Ruggum and Bikkle inadvertantly discover the lost entrance to Brockhall, legendary home of the Badger Lords. It is a chance discovery that has immense implications for the whole land.
Jacques' exciting story comes together to plunder Redwall's past and looks to its future, too, with the discovery of a new fearless heroine. It's a great mix that should be savoured. Suitable for ages nine and over.--John McLay
