Matthias's raft drifts towards the rats on shore, watched in horror by Mattimeo and friends as the arrows fall and the fish nibble. In the roof of Redwall Abbey Baby Rollo, Mrs. Churchmouse and Cornflower wait to be thrown down unless the abbey surrenders. Triumphant, Slagar drags the miserable slaves onwards as Warbeak desperately and unsuccessfully still seeks Matthias. At Redwall, little Sister May comes up with a potion to drug the birds with food, and at the river it is a frightened Cheek who finally risks swimming - saving Matthias and company by eating vast numbers of nibbling fish. As Abbot Mordalfus prepares to exchange hostages at Redwall, Warbeak joins Matthias at the river to defeat Stonefleck's rats. She delivers the deciphered message, which will help locate the young ones, but is killed in battle trying to save other sparras. Matthias heads south, deeply saddened by the death of his old Redwall ally. Slagar will pay dearly for his evil.
Martin and friends survive the storm and as sun begins to shine they paddle towards the shore - but they have become separated from Brome and Felldoh, who they fear have drowned. Druwp saves his skin by raising the alarm and revealing Martin's escape. Skalrag must admit that some prisoners have escaped by sea. Felldoh and Brome are washed ashore - alive. Seeking shelter, they discover a band of strolling players, the ROSEHIP PLAYERS, and meet BALLAW their leader and the tough badger ROWANOAK. Martin and friends also struggle ashore only to be captured by QUEEN AMBALLA and her pygmy shrews. They are prisoners and slaves again! The friends are forced to look after the pygmy shrew children - and Martin saves them from an attack by a gannet. In return they are awarded their freedom and they set off again for Noonvale. They are unaware that Felldoh, Brome and the Rosehip Players are planning a dramatic rescue attempt to free the remaining slaves by infiltrating Marshank as wandering performers- or that Clogg and Badrang have decided to join forces to ensure that there will be no escape for the remaining slaves and that those who have already escaped will be recaptured.
