Review Quotes:
" Lord Brocktree is a thriller. The pace is like all of Jacques' books, as fast as the slingshots and double-edged swords." --The Deseret News (Salt Lake City, UT)

"The Medieval world of Redwall Abbey--where gallant mouse warriors triumph over evil invaders--has truly become the stuff of legend." --Seattle Post-Intelligencer

"Great reading...entertaining. Classic confrontations between good and evil will never go out of style." --The Orlando Sentinel

"Jacques' effortless, fast-paced narrative gets its readers quickly hooked. He clearly loves this other world he has created--there's a genuine sense of involvement and care (lots of lovingly descriptive passages), as well as an overflowing, driving imagination." --Birmingham Post

"Completely drawn and full of surprises as the complex subplots. [Jacques] is an old-fashioned storyteller. His tale is layered and detailed--and it twists as tightly as the winding corridors and hidden passages of Salamandastron, until readers are completely immersed in his world." --The Cincinnati Enquirer

"The Knights of the Round Table with paws." --Sunday Times (London)
