Review by Abby
I adore Brain Jacques and the world he has created with the Redwall series. The Sable Quean is a good addition to the series, continuing with the fine feasts, valient heroes, evil vermin villains, with cunning plans and plot twists. This was a pretty straightforward story, with no riddles to speak of. It wasn't my favorite of the series (I have read them all), but it was better than several of the recent books. Jacques presented us with many wonderful new characters, and I would be happy to read another book with the same cast - I am sure there are other adventures to tell of Buckler, Diggs, Ambry, and maybe even Axtel and Flib. Hare though he may be, I have a bit of a crush on Buckler - he's the perfect hero. Sable Quean is a fun, easy read, especially for anyone whose heart has already been lost to Redwall Abbey!
