A shadow has fallen on the shore of the Eastern sea, a shadow called Marshank. In this cold stone fortress a stoat named Badrang holds dozens of innocent creatures as slaves, part of his scheme to build an empire where he will rule as unquestioned tyrant. Among those slaves is a mouse named Martin who has a warrior's heart, and a burning desire for freedom - freedom not only for himself, but for all of Badrang's victims. There is no risk he will not take, no battle he will not fight, to end the stoats evil reign, and in the process regain the sword of his father, Luke the Warrior - the sword that Badrang stole from him long ago.

Martin's love interest in this story is the heroine Rose of Noonvale. Her full name is Laterose. The first season of Redwall (which takes place hundreds of years after Martin the Warrior) is set in the summer of the Late Rose. See more »
I don't think it is quite as strong as Redwall and Mattimeo, which were both wonderful, but this is an excellent series and like its two predecessors well worth looking out for. The animation is of very good quality, with the colours especially audacious, while the music is once again beautiful. The writing is uniformly good, and the story is superb, while like Redwall and Mattimeo the violence enhances the drama rather than distracts from it. The characters are engaging particularly the title character who is easy to relate to, while the voice work once again is outstanding from all involved. In conclusion, Martin the Warrior is excellent and worth a look. 9/10 Bethany Cox
