Similarly to the popular Redwall and Warrior series, all the characters in Stahlfeld's books are animals, though they display very human-like strengths and weaknesses.
Darkwoods, released in April 2011, begins the tale of the campaign of the Darkwoods Foxes to conquer the lands of the Wraith Mice, Squirrel Tribes, and their allies. In the newly-released sequel, Pasadagavra, the reader finds the war in full swing, and soon the great Stone Tribe city of Pasadagavra is under siege.
Stahlfeld's books bring to life everyday characters who find in themselves the ability to rise up and be heroes. "I like to write about characters who do the right thing, even when its hard and when they're tempted to take the easy way out instead," says Stahlfeld.
