The evil wildcat Queen Tsarmina is determined to take over Mossflower Woods, forcing the inhabitants to slavery. Being unused to the ways of war, the woodlanders are in a desperate situation when Martin the Warrior arrives. They decide to send Martin on a journey to find the Badger Lord, Boar the Fighter. But the woodlanders are running out of time. They can’t hold Tsarmina back much longer. Will Martin the Warrior return in time to save them from their impending fate?
Even though Redwall is the beginning of the series, I read Mossflower first, and I actually like it better for starting things off. It’s a whole lot of fun and one of my favorites. There’s a Mossflower Crossword Puzzle at the official Redwall site, too.
