Recently I was asked by a client to make some estimations regarding a review of a code review for a programming project. The aim of the project is to refactor the existing code for efficiency, check the security and add new functionality. Having done code reviews in the past I had an idea on how it should be done, and little idea on how to quantify the work into an estimate.
How a code review estimate is done now?
Brian Jacques‘s book Outcast of Redwallfollows Veil the ferret who is raised by mousemaid Bryony with in the walls of Redwall. Bryony is the only one who has faith in the young ferret, after trying to poison Friar Bunfold he is banished from Redwall. The badger Sunflash, a prisoner of the ferret Swartt Sixclaw, escapes with the help of the kestrel Skarlath and makes his way through Mossflower to reach Salamandastron.
The story of a banished ferret seeking his destiny and an escapee badger doing the same, and both will cross paths with the evil Swartt Sixclaw again, will nature or nurture win out?
A great story in which we get to meet Bella’s son Sunflash. A good read.
As a young mouse, after the death of his father Luke, Martin was enslaved by Badrang and his sword taken away from him. Martin manages to escape from Marshank and with the help of Grumm and Rose, and together they travel to Noonvale to free Marshank.
As with many of the tales of Redwall this grabs you by the heart strings, a wonderful and sad story.
After freeing Marshank and heading south Martin the Warrior is captured in Mossflower and his sword is broken by a wildcat Tsarmina, daughter of Verdauga whose tyranny reigns over Mossflower wood. Martin meets Gonff the Mousethief, the new friends escape from castle Kotir and go on a quest to Salamandastron to find Boar, father of Bella to help take back Mossflower from the wildcats. But first they will have to defeat Boar’s mortal enemy Ripfang the searat who torments Salamandastron.
I love all the Redwall books, and this one is no different.
The story follows Tammo, a hare who longs to be a member of the Long Patrol. Who begins his travels to Salamandastron not realizing that the savage Rapscallions are on the warpath.
Another wonderful book filled with adventure.
Lord Brocktree, by Brian Jacques, tells the story of a Badger who is drawn to the ancestral home of the Badger Lords, Salamandastron. A great mountain filled with the perilous and ever hungry hares who make up the Long Patrol.
Salamandastron and the Long Patrol haven’t seen battle in ages, the young have left to go adventuring. Only the experienced hares remain to protect the great mountain when it is overrun with nefarious scum, with a leader believing he has been given the charge from God to take over Salamandastron and turn it into the palace of his Empire. With the help of the Badger Lord the remaining members of the Long Patrol escape to battle another day.
Lord Brocktree also believes he has a destiny, he leaves his home and travels to Salamandastron to take his place as successor to the Badger Lords legacy. He must fight to reclaim destiny.
An exciting story, and a wonderful read.
