From School Library Journal

Grade 4–8—Pitchforks, daggers, mace, and chain—these are the weapons of choice in a warring animal realm. Lord Asheye of the fortress mountain Salamandastron seeks a new Badger Lord, one who has been prophesized to shun armor and a sword. This young badger is possessed by the deadly Bloodwrath, a ferocious rage that turns him into an unstoppable killing force. Mad Maudie, a haremaiden of the Long Patrol, is ordered to find him and bring him back to Salamandastron. She sets out to secure her charge but realizes that destiny has carved a different path. A group of vicious Brownrats, dressed like cannibals, plot to storm Redwall Abbey. Instead, they encounter the seafaring vermin crew of the Bludgullet led by the infamous fox, Vizka Longtooth, intent on the same mission. In the midst of the turmoil, the young badger warrior emerges and changes the course of events. Dialogue written as accented speech is challenging to decipher but ultimately adds to the character development. Fans of the series will not be disappointed as the historical events of Mossflower Wood, Salamandastron, and Redwall Abbey continue to evolve. Story lines from previous books are mentioned briefly, leaving readers with a few unanswered questions, but not at the expense of their appreciation of this heroic tale.—Robyn Gioia, Bolles School, Ponte Vedra, FL

From Booklist

Lord Asheye, the Badger Lord of Salamandastron envisions his own demise, prompting him to send a clever haremaid from the Long Patrol on a quest to find his successor. Meanwhile, Gorath, an orphaned warrior badger, has a vision of his own: a sword-wielding mouse tells him to follow a thief to Redwall. Complicating matters are Vizka Longtooth and his scurrilous Sea Raiders who want to capture Redwall for themselves. Readers won't want to miss this installment in the Redwall Chronicles, which, as usual, is filled with colorful characters and high adventure. Weisman, Kay

This is probably my least favorite of the Redwall books, mostly because it is the most gender-stereotypical and because it continues the trope of certain species being stupid and evil, while others are invariably virtuous. However, Brian Jacques wrote beautifully, and this is a fine book even if I do not care for a couple of aspects of it. Every Brian Jacques book is an adventure in vocabulary building, and if kids read it for no other reason, it would still be a net asset to their lives.

Recommended for advanced reading 9 year olds on up.

*Warning: spoilers*

I am sad to say that I believe this is the weakest of the Redwall series. It's not a matter of a familiar plot, but the weakness of the characters, the occasional overly-convenient event, and repetitive descriptions. The Redwall elders are unusually harsh, particularly in the beginning of the book. Their characters seem very flat, and any changes in their actions don't seem believable. While I can accept the most overly-convenient events in a story I'm already suspending disbelief for, the badgers Salixa and Tabura came out of nowhere to fix Gorath's Bloodwrath. Salixa in particular was ridiculously two-dimensional. She was described as "slender" and "gentle" far too often to not be repetitive. I felt like I'd fallen into a random love story that just happened to have an adventure and badgers.

I enjoyed the book, and I certainly wouldn't steer younger or dedicated readers away from Eulalia. The plot was a typical, interesting adventure. It has its fun characters. I specifically enjoyed Maudie. It's an enjoyable story. The writing just wasn't up to Jacques' normal standard.

I have been an avid Redwall reader ever since I found Mossflower in my school library in grade six. I was immediately taken with the series. so when I got Eulalia! I was thrilled. Do not listen to 1 star reveiwers on this or any other Redwall book. They will tell you the series has worn itself out. I say different.

Sure, there are repetitive instances such as there being a rat in Mossflower who has the same name of another rat in Lord Brocktree, but the main stories are vastly different to each other.

I had to take points off this book because of some repetitiveness like the slight overuse of the Badger's bloodwrath in every book and Vizka Longtooth trying to dig his way into Redwall. Vizka was the second vermin to try that. Cluny the Scourge tried that in the first Redwall book. He succeded but if I remember correctly he was stopped by the Redwallers pouring caoldrons of hot porridge among his troops. Vizka did not succeed but the idea was the same.

I will not reveal too much of the plot now because you might want to read it yourself. but take my word for it: great book, great author, great series. Mossflower (Redwall, Prequel to the Redwall Series)

The Redwall series has always been one of my favorites. I find it fascinating having different animals play different stereotypes and fighting in medieval armour. This book isn't my favorite of the series but it is still fantastic, as they all are

The description of the book made me believe it was a normal paperback published by Avon. When it came in I found it was a trade paperback published by Firebird. In my library I am building all of the Redwall books in hardback published by Philomel because they are all the same size, and all of the paperbacks published by Avon because I love the artwork on the covers. This might be an unusual complaint to any but book collectors.
The story itself? Are you kidding? Its Brian Jacques. I am almost 50 and I re-read these stores time and again. We lost a fine story-teller when he died.

Torn from his humble home in the Northern Isles, Gorath the badger is taken captive aboard the feared vessel Bludgullet captained by the feared Viska Longtooth, a savage and crazed fox with an unquenchable blood thirst.

Meanwhile, far away in the heart of Mossflower Woods, a young thief is exiled from the great Redwall Abbey. Excited to seek his fortunes in the wider world, Orkwill Prink, a spirited and energetic hedgehog forges ahead into the unknown to search out his fate. Orkwill is unaware however, that he is soon to cross paths with the mighty badger and a crew of vile vermin.

I have always been a lover of Brian Jacques's Redwall series, and Eulalia was no exception. I love Jacques's work because even though the reader visits the same places over and over again in all of his books, his world becomes familiar and comforting as opposed to boring and predictable. His characters are always easy to love, and wonderful to hate all at the same time.

It's hard to find too many criticisms of Eulalia, which I'm afraid, will make for a fairly boring review, but Jacques's work always speaks for itself so I suppose lengthy reviews are not needed.

If I had to find a single complaint it would be with the characters of Salixia and Tabura. The pair shows up in the last quarter of Eulalia without warning and are suddenly major characters in the story. I did not dislike the characters at all; I just found that it was unusual for Jacques's style to suddenly throw in major characters so late in the story.

So, boring this review may have been, but Eulalia certainly is not. If you're an avid Redwall reader you've probably already read it and are at this review simply to see if I liked it as much as you did. If you're new to Redwall or thinking about picking up the series for your child do so, you won't regret it!
