    This was most extremely excellent and I m writing this review on a little, tiny digital keyboard and the temperature is relatively very hot today, so I think I ll finish my review right now, what

    Ublaz Mad Eyes, the evil ruler of the island called Sampetra, is on a mission to find the Tears of All Oceans Meanwhile, Grath Longfletch sets out on a journey to seek vengeance for the murder of her otter tribe and family, and joins forces with Martin Mattimeo s son and other friends of Redwall who are in search of Abbott Durral and a young bankvole maid who were captured by Ublaz s evil followers Back at Redwall, Tansy and her friends follow clues to find the six rose colored pearls known as t [...]

    I ve reread this particular Redwall tale several times, partly because it was always lying around in my fifth grade classroom and partly because of the distinction of a female otter warrior as the main character or as one of the main characters, as Jacques can never stick to just one Grath is always strong on my heart, second to Bragoon of course, and I m glad Jacques decided to introduce another strong female He s great at females strong in personality sassy hedgehogs especially , which is grea [...]

    If you get to this point in the Redwall books, you know the formula There will be feasts Riddles Evil pirate rats Plucky woodland heroes Strange undertones of race theory and absolutely no attention to actual mustelid behavior Did anyone ever bother to tell Brian Jacques that otters and badgers are also mustelids like ferrets and prey on mice Apparently not Ahem For a later Redwall book, only half trying with the formula, this one works well There s a fun heist with the pearls and a connection t [...]

    Author Brian Jacques seems to write from a neverending well of beautiful language and grand, enrapturing themes that take a simple idea and enlarge it on such a breathtakingly big scale that it becomes something emotionally powerful and absolutely unforgettable Not since the fourth Redwall book, Mattimeo, have we seen a story that takes place as chronologically late as Pearls of Lutra The famed Redwall warriors Matthias and Mattimeo have gone to the gates of the Dark Forrest by now, but Mattimeo [...]

    This is one of the best Redwall books that I ve read yet I enjoyed reading about the quest that Fermald left behind for Tansy, Rollo, Piknim, Craklyn, Arven, and others to follow The friendship between Grath an otter bent on seeking revenge and Inbar another otter who knew no warfare was nice to read about, and I hope that Grath found peace after she moved with Inbar back to his holt And, of course, the character Romsca was dear to my heart how her cruel corsair heart softened and by her death s [...]

    I have yet to find a Brian Jacques book I didn t adore His books are full of adventure, friendship, good vs evil, right vs wrong, humor, song, riddles, and characters we fall in love with I can read any Redwall book to any age person and it s rare they won t get caught up in the stories My dad loved them as much as my little grandson The Pearls of Lutra was full of riddles, corsairs, an evil pine marten, dream visits from Martin the Warrior mouse, an otter on a mission, Dibbuns creating chaos, a [...]

    This is one of my favorite Redwall books, and trust me, I have a lot This about a sea otter bent on getting revenge on her family s killers Holt Lutraaaaaa

    Pearls of Lutra occurs chronologically in the Redwall timeline after Mattimeo, with the son of that book s eponymous protagonist and Tess Churchmouse, Martin, being Redwall s Warrior, with his parents having since passed on The primary plotline focuses on the titular MacGuffins, the titular pearls known officially as the Tears of All Oceans, with the chief adversary, the pine marten Ublaz Mad Eyes, Emperor of the Isle of Sampetra, wanting to get his paws on them Rollo the bankvole is the Recorde [...]

    Not a bad entry, but very busy and with a surfeit of tedious characters Clecky needed to fall into a hole of editorial excision and never return, and the cute trio of Dibbuns was obnoxious All four characters were a waste of paper that could have been better devoted to exploring Romsca, the ferret corsair with a conscience who protected Father Abbot Durral Jacques has never been nuanced in his portrayal and examination of nature versus nurture and good versus evil, and this could have been a rar [...]

    I picked up this book in middle school with no idea what it was about Looking back, it might not have been the best book to read as a springboard into the Redwall series, but I seriously fell in love with it I loved the characters, I loved the world, I loved the storyI remember pretending to be one of the characters in gym class when we were learning archery, trying to channel her good archery skills I was a complete failure and a total dork, but that s beside the point Maybe I m looking at this [...]

    These were never good books, but they weren t always so boring I ve never read this one, but switch out a few names, maybe trade an otter here for a badger there, and i ve read this exact one.

    Finds book while cleaning that I forgot I had started forever ago Finished it about 2 hours Final thoughts, another great Redwall book Why didn t I read it when I first got it

    I remember this one as one of my least favorite Redwall books I just couldn t get into the characters, and the plot was disappointing to me Still, as a Redwall book, it s of course worth a read.

    Despite coming to Pearls of Lutra late on in my Redwall fandom life and despite it being written after Outcast, the point for many fans where the series took a downhill turn, I m really very fond of this book There are dozens of plot threads, giving the cast a wonderful ensemble feel, but with each of the characters still managing to maintain their own distinct personality It s nice to have so many young females among the main cast, with Piknim, Cracklyn and Tansy at the Abbey and Viola out at s [...]

    I ve found that the Redwall books that are the best so far are the ones that have an overarching plot that all the viewpoints participate in So, no random Redwall side plots that have nothing to do with the hero s quest or the villain s plan, just one plot that affects everyone Pearls of Lutra has that, which means that the Redwall Abbey portion of the book is not tedious or irrelevant, but is actually quite fun and a great puzzle quest to boot.Arven is an interesting character he s a Dibbun ugh [...]

    This is possibly my favorite Redwall book I really enjoyed it the first time I read it, and after rereading it, it holds up better than most of the others from the series It deviates from the others a bit, as Martin the Warrior II and his crew travel beyond the boundaries of standard Redwall territory and sail to the tropical island of Sampetra to rescue the Abbott, who has been kidnapped by the island s leader, Emperor Ublaz, a pine marten with hypnotic eyes and an army of lizards The Abbott is [...]

    A definite uptick in the Redwall series, but still a little frustrating I really appreciated that we finally get a few female otters, although Grath felt to me like an otter version of Mariel without much extra depth or difference I also liked the search for the pearls, but either I ve read too many Redwall novels or Jacques riddles are getting predictable, because there was only one that I didn t get as soon as I read it I dislike outstripping the characters that much.A little bit of movement i [...]

    I really like animal fantasy, likeWatership DownandCharlotte s Web , which is why I asked for and received several books out of the Redwall series for Christmas some years ago, and even though I m an adult, those of you who know me know that I enjoy an occasional dabble with young adult fiction But after readingRedwallitself, I haven t read another book in the series until now I wouldn t say they are bad books they are just intended for an audience a level or two below the audience for the YA fi [...]

    I picked this up because it was handy when I needed something to read, not immediately realizing it was part of a series Fortunately, it stands well enough on its own that it didn t matter For the uninitiated, the series is set in a fantasy world populated by a variety of anthropomorphic creatures, aimed at the older end of the young adult market As such, it doesn t sugarcoat some fairly dark characters and events, and should contain enough plot twists and grit to keep adult fans of the genre en [...]

    A lonely otter determined for revenge against the rats that killed his otter gangs up with mice shrews and other animals to kill a villanous pine marten called Ublaz.

    This was the first Redwall novel I read when I first found them in Middle School I was looking for something new and fantastic, and had seen them on the shelves before So I went to them one day I can no longer remember what drew me to this specific book, but I know that the cover and synopsis on the inside cover intrigued me, and so I read it And I loved it Jacques, rest his soul, is easily one of the greatest story tellers I ve ever read, on par with C.S Lewis and better even, in terms of story [...]

    This is the first Brian Jacques book I ever read I bought it in 1995, I think, but I didn t read it until a few years later This series was the catalyst that got my son interested in reading, or at least got him to understand that reading can be fun I love the whole Redwall series, but I do believe this particular book will forever hold a special place in my heart Fencing, fighting, pirates, torture, revenge, true love I guess it doesn t sound too bad LOL It reminds me of that scene in The Princ [...]

    As a child I think this was my absolute favourite Redwall book I can still recite the first few lines of the poem about Holt Lutra and I remember I used to read that over and over again.Re reading the book this time I did wonder if Sampetra could be the same villian filled northern island that pops up every now and again a bit like the lake with the White Ghost being the island of the Marlfoxes , but I think this lies in a slightly different direction, though still to the north The riddles in th [...]
