Mouse Guard: Fall 1152

The Mouse Guard was formed to protect mice from the predators and the elements. The Guard protects those in their cities, but has other duties as well. They patrol the routes between the settlements, fight intruders, patrol the boarders, make new paths, and guide other mice while traveling. The mice in the Guard are dedicated to their order. This book begins with members of the Guard: Saxon, Kenzie, and Lieam on a mission to find a missing merchant. They find more than they bargain for as they discover evidence of a traitor. They must stop the traitor's plot before the Mouse Guard is destroyed.

This was a great start to this series. I loved the introduction to the Guard, the personalities of the Guard members we are introduced to, and the art is gorgeous! The plot immediately pulls you in as you travel with these brave mice on their missions. I finished this in one sitting because I wanted to know what was going to happen to the brave members of the Guard.

I think fans of Redwall will enjoy this series. The first book is not as detailed as Redwall is, but it is a similar world. This might be a fun way to see if a younger audience would be interested in a story like Redwall. That does not mean Mouse Guard is just for a younger audience, quite the contrary. I enjoyed this book, and look forward to reading the rest of the series.

I recommend reading this book.
