Visit The Sable Quean In Redwall

There’s a new Redwall story that just came out in bookstores through Philomel Books entitled The Sable Quean: A Tale from Redwall. Author Brian Jacques takes us back to his fantastical world of Redwall for what Booklist describes as “the latest entry in the prolific, popular series (that) will please devotees, with episodes comedic to dramatic and characters of all stripes and furs…side stories and alternating characters’ experiences add intrigue, suspense, and depth to an absorbing, sure-to-be-requested read.” You can read the book’s synopsis after the jump.

He appears out of thin air and vanishes just as quickly. He is Zwilt the Shade, and he is evil. Yet he is no match for his ruler, Vilaya the Sable Quean. Along with their hordes of vermin, these two have devised a plan to conquer Redwall Abbey. And when the Dibbuns go missing, captured one by one, their plan is revealed.

Will the Redwallers risk the fate of their Abbey and all of Mossflower Wood to save their precious young ones from imprisonment? Perhaps Buckler, Blademaster of the Long Patrol, can save the day. He has a score of his own to settle. And fear not, these Dibbuns are not as innocent as they appear. After all, they’re from Redwall.
