An unlikely pair, the young haremaid Dotti and the badger-warrior Lord Brocktree, set out for Salamandastron together. But once they arrive, they find that the legendary mountain has been captured by the wildcat Ungatt Trunn and his Blue Hordes. They find themselves rallying an army of hares and otters, shrews and moles, mice and squirrels. Can they execute a plan that makes up in cleverness what it lacks in force? Recommended for ages 9 and up.
