The Fur and Freedom Fighters attempt to batter the Marshank gates, but it will not yield and so they are forced to retreat. Meanwhile, inside the walls, Badrang humiliates his rival, Clogg. Regrouping, Martin plans his next attack. Hatching a cunning battle plan that would give each group a precise role in conquering Badrang and Clogg, it becomes clear that Martin has now truly become a leader. He and Rose confess their love for each other in a brief and beautiful calm before the storm. In the battle, each group fulfills its purpose and Martin's army courageously retakes Marshank but not before Rose heroically sacrifices her own life to save Martin from Badrang.
Martin, unaware of Rose's fate, leads his troops to victory. His triumph, though, turns to unspeakable grief when he discovers that his beloved Rose has died. Overwhelmed by sadness, Martin buries Rose. Brome invites all to return with him to Noonvale and return to peace. Now that Badrang is dead and Clogg has been driven mad, the fighters bid their farewells and begin the long trek home. But Martin will not join them. He has chosen to journey on alone and devote his life to peace. We learn from Tim Churchmouse as he concludes his story, that it is Martin who will ultimately help to found Redwall Abbey and continue the story of Redwall, a story that we will tell in Mossflower.
