Amazon.com Review

Heaved off her ship in a pirate raid, Mousemaid Mariel is washed up on the shores of Mossflower. With no idea where she is, or indeed who she is, the young warrior mouse embarks on an unforeseen adventure that will take her to the very heart of Redwall and into the arms of the people who live there.

Mariel of Redwall is a captivating and magical adventure story in the Redwall series by Brian Jacques. At times gentle, but mostly packed with adventure and heroism on the grandest of scales, this tale is at once delightful and devastating in its proportions.

Jacques weaves his customary magic, taking the reader to the heart and soul of the mythical Redwall--welcoming, terrifying, magical, and at times all too real. The place, the characters, and the adventure spring to life in a bout of indefinable magic, mystery, and mayhem. An excellent book that will leave readers begging for more. (Fortunately, there's plenty more where this came from!) --Susan Harrison --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Publishers Weekly

A female protagonist, Mariel the mousemaid, lends a contemporary touch to the fourth installment in Jacques's Redwall series, which narrates epic events among the animals in the manner of Watership Down.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Mariel and her father, Joseph the Bellmaker, are on a ship headed towards Salamandastron to offer a magnificent bell to the Lord Badger of Salamandastron, Lord Rawnblade. But they are attacked by the pirates of Gabool the Wild, a searat who is a terror on the seas, leader of all the searats. Everyone on board are either killed or taken to Gabool's fortress Bladegirt on the isle of Terramort to be made as oarslaves. Joseph is kept alive to be made to tell what the symbols on the great bell mean, but he remains silent. Mariel though is thrown off the cliffs of Terramort for attacking Gabool and making a fool of him before his followers.
She is carried by the tide towards the coast near the swamp lands. She remembers nothing so she calls herself Storm Gullwhacker, Storm because she remembers the terrible storm she was in and Gullwhacker, because of a rope she found which is knotted and used as a weapon. She meets three hares from the Long Patrol, Colonel Clary Meadowcleary, Brigadier Thyme, and Honorable Rosemary (called Hon Rosie). They take her to an odd old squirrel named Pakatugg who will lead her to safety, to Redwall. Instead, Storm (Mariel)gets so frustrated with him that she leaves him. Fortunately, he meets up with Tarquin L. Woodsorrel, a hare from the Long Patrol who was sent by Lord Rawnblade to stay at Redwall (he is also very much in love with Hon Rosie!) He takes her to Redwall Abbey.
There Storm (Mariel) makes friends with two mice, Dandin and Saxtus. Mariel regains her memory though when Saxtus recites an old prophecy which includes her father and her. She is determined to go to Terramort to free her father and to kill Gabool. The only clues to the direction of Terramort is an old poem and she sets out with her friends Dandin, Tarquin, and Durry Quill, a friendly porcupine.

You wake up on a desolate shore with no memory and only a small length of rope to your name. There is also a swarm of seagulls circling above you to die. This is one of the first scenes in the book "Mariel of Redwall" the fourth chapter in Brian Jacques's epic Redwall series.
In the book Mariel and her father, Joseph the Bellmaker, are sailing to deliver a bell to Lord Rawnblade, ruler of the great fortress Salamandastrom. On the way, their precious cargo is hijacked by the evil ruler of the searats, Gabool the wild. Gabool holds Mariel and Joseph as captives until he grows tired of them and throws them out to sea to die. With the fate of her father unknown, Mariel ends up in the hands of the peaceful Redwall Abbey where she joins up with Durry the hedgehog, Dandin the mouse, and Tarquin the hare as they set out to destroy the ruthless Gabool.
The minute you open up a Redwall book you are thrust into an adventorus and sometimes dangerous animal civilization. The books all focus on the land of Mossflower, where animals live in harmony. As you travel to the center of Mossflower you come upon the glorious Redwall Abbey. This animal world is much like our midevil times. The entirely animal cast adds a hue like none other to the plot.
My favorite charactor was Tarquin Woodsorrel, a hare that was once a member of the long patrol of Salamandastrom. He then was sent by Lord Rawnblade to protect the Abbey from attack. His only faults were that he had an odd sense of humor and dressed funny, but he was totally honest and a fearless fighter. When Mariel leaves to slay Gabool he goes along and gives the book great adventure scenes and some comic relief. I think every good book needs a lively charactor like Tarquin.

I absolutely LOVE this book! It is sooo suspenseful, and a genuine page turner! Every one of Jacques' books I've read so far are truly amazing, and I praise him for his hard work!

Format: Hardcover
The fourth book in the Redwall series delivers another powerful and moving tale from the master of animal fantasy, Brian Jacques. A sequel to Mossflower, Mariel takes place a few generations after the Outcast of Redwall. In this installment, The main character is Mariel. Mariel is a warrior maid. She can fight like a badger lord (Who appeares later in the book.) She lives to kill Gabool, lord of the searats. (Ublaz without the hypnotism.) There's just one problem, she can't remember who she is. With the help of the Long Patrol, Mariel finds her way to Redwall, where she quickly recovers her memory, and sets out to deal justice to the vile searat Gabool. Joining her on her quest is Dandin, a descendant of GONFF the mousethief, Tarquin L Woodsorrel a Salamandastron hare, and Durry Quill nephew of the Redwall Cellerkeeper. Together with a cast of hundreds, Mariel packs a lot of excitement into what otherwise would be a remake of Mossflower with different characters and destination. Mariel is also Jacques most well-written work, and the basis for Martin the Warrior, (a story told to Abbot Saxtus and several other mariel veterans) and the sequel, The Bellmaker. After reading it over twenty times, I must say that this book, and every other book in this series is a tribute to it's creator, Brian Jacques.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
One of my favorite Redwall books, with a strong and resourceful heroine. (Of course, she couldn't do it without her friends!) Mariel is tough and plucky, but a sweet soul deep down, and her battle to save her father and defeat the cruel and crazy Gabool the Wild is pure, thrilling Redwall adventure.

Notable also is Saxtus, whose clear-headed strategies help protect his home, despite his anti-war sentiments.
