While he has grown to value and respect the peaceful philosophies of the order, he dreams of becoming a great warrior like the order's greatest member, Martin the Warrior. That dream becomes most relevent when the abbey is besieged by Cluny himself. The abbey is determined to resist in what becomes a war of arms, will and wits. Now, Matthias must protect his home with everything he can contribute, while he discovers that a tapestry depicting the history of Martin, is really a prophesy and clues about himself... Written by

I give them a 2 only in reference that they tried, even though they throw the wonderful book down the toilet. I watched all 13 episodes of the show supposedly worthy of the title 'Redwall' and haven't seen such horrible justice to a novel since 'The Secret of Nimh.' I think I counted 6 episodes that actually contained something in the book, all the rest were some screw-off to make a profit. I cringe every time someone says 'Wild Ivey' or any of the other trash they threw in. They could have put a lot more book details in, but instead made up a bunch of crap. If you must add, add. If you must eliminate, eliminate. But if you add and eliminate your work will amount to nothing.
Summarized, if you are a fan of Mr. Jacques wonderful Redwall Saga, and believe in NOT destroying a literary masterpiece, you're bound to get all riled up upon viewing this terrible adaptation.
