Late autumn winds sighed fitfully around the open gatehouse door, rustling brown gold leaves in the fading afternoon.
My initial thoughts: This is a very powerful opening line. I love how the winds are personified in a way that is ambiguous. It says fitfully, but is it a playful fit or an angry fit? We will have to keep reading to find out!
The thrilling prequel to “Redwall”. The clever and greedy wildcat Tsarmina becomes ruler of all Mossflower Woods and is determined to govern the peaceful woodlanders with an iron paw. The brave mouse Martin and quick-talking mouse thief Gonff meet in the depths of Kotir Castle’s dungeon. The two escape and resolve to end Tsarmina’s tyrannical rule. Joined by Kinny the mole, Martin and Gonff set off on a dangerous quest for Salamandastron, where they are convinced that their only hope, Boar the Fighter, still lives.
