Well, book one sure ended tragically. Now we're on to book 2 and everything seems to have switched gears and gone from heartbreaking to kind of comical. Not sure about that. Hopefully, we'll figure out the point of this adventure soon enough.
I read this series because it's by my all-time favorite author, even though I don't care for pirate stories too much. I just have a mission to read ever Brian Jacques book there is since he died a couple of years back. But I prefer the Redwall series much more than this.
