Marlfox: Summary

"Marlfox" by Brian Jacques - A Tale of Peril and Prowess! Whisk yourself away to the verdant and enchanted land of Mossflower Country, where beasts speak, heroism abounds, and danger lurks in every thicket. "Marlfox", by acclaimed author Brian Jacques, is an epic saga, and a jewel in the crown of the Redwall series.

With all the wit and wonder of a fireside story, this tale echoes with enchantment, peril, and bravery. The ominous Marlfoxes, possessing eyes of hypnotic ice blue, are the bane of Mossflower; but their true terror resides in their ability to become near invisible, a trickery that casts a sinister pall over Mossflower woods.

The hallowed red sandstone edifice of Redwall Abbey, normally a sanctuary of peace, is seized by an air of uncertainty when an enchanted tapestry is stolen, unraveling the tranquil existence of the valiant residents.

Song, a spirited young otter, embarks on a quest to retrieve the tapestry. Accompanied by Dannflor Reguba, a squirrel warrior, and the perky Dibbun (infant animals) Dippler and Burble, they venture into unknown territories riddled with danger and deception. Interwoven are tales of seafaring voyages by the harequeen, Lady Cregga Rose Eyes, which are tales spun with Jacques' signature mastery over prose.

You'll be left spellbound by this mesmerizing journey; so, reader, have at thee and dare to delve into the alluring pages of "Marlfox".
