This story of mouse warriors is beautifully drawn. Text is minimal but keeps the story moving while the action of the brave mice and their foes plays out in the panels. Dominated by earth tones, the illustrations conjure a natural world of autumn undergrowth and hidden civilization. The mice are dressed in splashes of color which help identify them. They courageously face natural dangers such as a large serpent, and huge crabs, but it is the traitorous foes of their own kind which present the real menace. Fans of Brian Jaques' "Redwall" series will feel right at home in the medieval world of talking/fighting warrior mice and will enjoy the twists and turns of political intrigue and espionage. The second title, "Winter 1152", is due out later in Spring 2009. I enjoyed this story, especially the detailed scenery and architecture. The epilogue and extras were just as fun to read as the story itself and I look forward to the next title in the series. Ages 8-14
