The direct sequel to Mariel of Redwall, The Bellmaker is the story of Joseph the Bellmaker, and his quest to find his daughter and her friend Dandin who he believes to be in dire peril. The story takes place at Redwall and in the Southern Lands, where a war is being raged between the vicious fox Urgan Nagru and the good Squirrel King Gael. The Bellmaker is Jacques' bset book yet, complete with action, a little romance, and an unusual searat that will make you laugh and cry all at the same time.
