Rakkety Tam MacBurl is a brave border warrior who has travelled south in search of adventure. But when his army is attacked by an evil flesh-eating band, adventure finds him.
 
Gulo the Savage, wolverine, flesh-eater and brutal killer, has come to Mossflower in search of his brother who stole the mystical stone that will make one of them king of the lands of ice and snow. Anybeast who gets in Gulo’s way is dead meat. And he’s heading for the peaceful Redwall Abbey unless Rakkety Tam can stop him.
 
“In style and content, the Redwall novels combine elements of Patrick O’Brian, Homer’s Illiad, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Kenneth Grahame’s The Wind in the Willows.”—The Boston Globe
 
“Full of the same romping fun as its predecessors, and it offers a brilliant Scottish flavor too.”—The Boston Herald
 
“A heroic tale of friendship, valor, and a battle between good and evil . . . This fast-paced adventure will keep readers on their toes until the final battle.”—School Library Journal
 
“A wild adventure full of ferocious, lovable, funny, and downright evil characters.”—Looking Glass Review
