In her flights, Triss happens upon Redwall, and the abbey creatures discover a new hero in her. Someone brave enough to carry the sword of Martin and face the evil that threatens them . . .

Publishers Weekly
Brian Jacques weighs in with Triss, the 15th title in his Redwall series. Here, the enslaved squirrelmaid escapes by sea and a Dibbun duo discovers Brockhall's secret entrance. David Elliot's b&w illustrations introduce each chapter. (Sept.) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
KLIATT
This is the 15th book in Jacques' epic series about adventurous woodland creatures, both noble and dastardly. Here our heroes are Triss the squirrelmaid, Shogg the otter, and Welfo the hogmaid, who escape from slavery and head across the sea toward Redwall. Nasty brother and sister ferrets Princess Kurda and Prince Bladd are on their trail, while a badger, an otter, and a hare head out to sea too, searching for the lost treasure of Brockhall. Fights, escapades, feasts and humor abound, along with lots of folksy British dialect. Redwall fans won't want to miss this latest fantasy, and those new to the series can easily pick it up here. Illustrated with b/w drawings. (Redwall series) Category: Hardcover Fiction. KLIATT Codes: JSA—Recommended for junior and senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2002, Penguin Putnam, Philomel, 400p. illus. map.,

School Library Journal
Gr 5 Up-Once again, Jacques has created a wonderfully imaginative and beautifully realized universe, filled to the brim with amazing and amusing characters. Triss the squirrelmaid (spiritual heiress to Martin the Warrior) escapes slavery, chased by the evil princess Kurda and her band of hired Freebooters. At the same time, two young rips named Scarum and Sagax head off to sea with their friend Kroova the otter, looking for adventure (and finding rather more than they bargain for). Meanwhile, there is something very scary lurking in the woods around Redwall Abbey. Almost every character speaks in elaborate dialect and there are several independent stories that converge at the end, requiring readers' concentration. There are also a few fairly graphic (though not gratuitous) scenes of violence. While this 15th book in the series is perhaps not the best place to start, even readers unfamiliar with the earlier titles will never feel lost, for there are plenty of references to earlier books.-Mara Alpert, Los Angeles Public Library Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

I love redwall books and my favorite is Triss. Brian does a fantastic job, exept that alot of my favorite charachters die, such as: Timballisto, Rockjaw, The Mask, Luke, Russa, and Arven the champion, but redwall still lives strong!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Don't forget there was also Mariel of Redwall who was an escaped slave. The difference was she had no friends to go along. Does anyone know the exact date for when the paperback version comes out??? I know it's in august but i don't know the EXACT date.

I LOVE REDWALL BOOKS! they are like som sort of addiction! i live in china (mostly becuase my dad is a lunatic and got sick of working in the states) any way i still have every new redwall book mailed to me! they are so good! i am so happy that brockhall is finally brought back into the story! i was wondering what had happened to it! i mean it couldnt have just rotted! if Mr. Jacques stops writting life will be alot worse! i will have nothing to do before i go to sleap or in the morning! the redwall books, like the tapestry of martin are woven togother so well! so many complex diversions and twists! the only time in the book when i stop worrying about any new traps the redwallers (or other animals) might fall into is perhaps the last page! PLEASE DO NOT STOP WRITTING MR JACQUES!!!

Another book written by a great author. Triss is very exiting. I could not put it down. I had read this before I got the nook. It was so great that it was the first book I bought. (}:

This book is amazing. You just have to love Triss when she woops the badguys with the sword of martin the warrior.Though if you havn't read redwall or mattimeo then you won't know what somethings in the book are. I also reccomend reading Lord Brocktree before or you won't understand about the mountain fortress called Salamandastron. If you are the type of person who cries after a really amazing story then you will be in tears. Posted: 7-18-12
