    Decent...

    I've been a fan of Mr. Jacques for years now, so when I first got my hands on a copy of 'Triss', I was overwhelmed... I hoped it would be another ' The Bellmaker' or 'Mossflower', but as i finished the last few pages, it became clear this was not one of his better books. The story was too long and dragged out, and the end was quick and sloppy. I don't think Triss herself got enough recognition as a warrior, and Redwall itself didn't get enough attention. I thought it was a decent book, but hopefully the next in the series will be a bit more captivating.

    Ummm......snore?

    Sorry guys, but I admit that Brian Jaques seems to be loosing his touch. Practially all his later books seem to repeat themsevles, and, is it just me, or does this book seem an awfully lot like Mariel of Redwall? Or perhaps the Bellmaker? Anyway, this book often put me to sleep, and I ended up skipping the last 100 pages so I could at least get some action at the end. All in all, you could do better, Brian. I bascially gace the book three stars because the ending, however slightly better than the begining, was partially good. But it still stunk.

    BJ is losing his touch

    Well, I must say, Brian Jaques appears to be losing his touch. Triss was okay, but his earlier books were definitely better (eg Martin the Warrior, Mariel of Redwall, Mossflower...) Triss just doesn't have the exitement of the others, or at least not as much. And it's SO obvious that he wrote it because of all the fans begging for a female protaganist! Maybe I'm just resentful because my favorite character always seems to die in his books...and this was no exception. All in all, Triss was pretty good, but I would reccomend BJ's other books before this one.

    Triss (Redwall #15)

    well, as you can see, only one week ago I was extremely psyched about the long awaited 15th Redwall. I spoke too soon. Brian Jacques has seemed to me to have been in a slump these past two books. Taggerung's riddles were lame (I mean, acronyms?!) and Triss seems to be even worse in the way that its kind of gimmicky (putting the last line of the book in that funny made-up code, like that's REAL original) and you're watching the characters from the outside, somehow, instead of really getting to know them. Also, the time scheme is really out of whack--all the action happens in the last 10 pages and then they have to drag out the epilogue to cover the Riftguard rescue! Bottom line: read it, because it's a Redwall, but hope that they get better soon.
