An otter is born at Redwall Abbey, and the vicious ferret Sawney Rath believes the otter is the mythical Taggerung, a fierce warrior who no beast can stand against in battle. Sawney's outlaw clan of foxes, weasels, stoats, and other vermin kidnaps the infant otter, but they have no idea what they're getting themselves into. Though he is trained in all the deadly arts and able to outfight, outrun, and outthink any clanbeast, "Tagg" grows up with a slight peculiarity: he refuses to kill. In fact, all Tagg really wants to do is escape his clan and solve the mystery of where he truly belongs.

But as young Tagg grows, he rebels against his destiny. The young otter journeys in search of his birthplace, a member of Sawney's clan always near, out to destroy the deserter. With the feisty mouse Nimbalo, Tagg fends off the avenging vermin, but can he find his way back to the Redwall family from whom he was separated so long ago? Here is all of the excitement and adventure a Redwall fan could wish for!
