Product Description


Picking up the story soon after events in The Invaders (2012), this engaging sequel opens aboard the Heron as Hal, his fellow Skandians, and their friend Lydia sail up a river in search of Zavac, the ruthless pirate who has stolen a precious relic from their village. Welcome humor lessens the dramatic tension at times, and the shipmates’ individuality and comradeship make their adventures more meaningful. [This] novel provides a satisfying conclusion to the three-book cycle that opened with The Outcasts (2011). [A] vigorous offshoot of the Ranger’s Apprentice series.

HASH(0xa13c7294) out of 5 stars Nice ending to the tale Nov. 11 2012

This book was a fabulous ending to the tale of the herons. It had me hooked for a whole hour and a half during the time it took me to finish the book; I was also always on my toes while reading this book. I hope maybe a sub-sequel may come out so I could find out about the life of Hal and Co. after the recovering of the Adomal. I recommend this book for all brotherband or ranger apprentice lovers!

HASH(0xa11226c0) out of 5 stars Smart and Entertaining finish to a great story. Nov. 18 2012
By sbrooke - Published on

I have read through all of the Rangers Apprentice books and now all of the Brotherand Chronicles books as well. John Flanagan has a great way of developing the characters and the story so that you become emotionally invested in them both. If you're interested in this book you've probably already book 1 and 2 and already have a interest or need to know what becomes of our brotherband. I couldn't wait to see how they were going to finish the story and if they would make it home myself, and I was not disappointed. Without giving anything away, the group gets stronger, closer and ultimately in this coming of age tale, they all become the men they are supposed to be. Flanagan's books are just fun reads and I definitely recommend this, but only after you read the 1st two.

HASH(0xa10fc954) out of 5 stars Great boy series Dec 30 2012
By A. Morison - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My son started with the Rangers apprentice series, and loves them! He shared these books with all his buddies and they discuss them endlessly. When that series ended the author created this series and my son and his friends became avid followers! I love that I don't have to encourage him to read. This author has sparked his imagination and he and his friends follow his writing with enthusiasm.

This was one of the best John Flanagan book I have read. I struggled to put it down (well I didn't actually.....) as I had to find out how things worked out. As a 30+ yr old woman I am hardly the target demographic but my whole family loves these books - including granddad at 65 and son at 16.

I've read each and every one of his marvels of books, and though some of his instances are a bit thin, he always seems to balance the malicious and generous events in the book well enough that I'm not entitled to make a arguement.

I read the "Harry Potter" series in four days. But there's one thing I'll tell you; I cried because of the Harry Potter Series when I read it... But never read it again.

I read all of John's books over and over again, unlike that series. In fact, I plan to buy expensive hard covers of every book he has ever written. Why?

Simply because I am amazed. You have no idea how hard it is to follow a plot and keep it exciting for yourself to write!

For an example, I am at a friend's house with my kindle. Who's book would I buy first to read if I can't sleep:

Steven King is good, but I don't like taking friggen notes on my books, if you can understand what I mean.

I have his book from the "Rangers Apprentice Series", the tenth one with The Battle in the fort and the large army in foreign land. If I cannot sleep, I read it again.

The only thing that worries me about reading his books is either understanding the terms for fighting or trying not to laugh in the middle of the night. Each time I read the books over, I enjoy the balance of feminine and macular power used in the book.

Katherine had been a great thinker.
This female character is a good person for action- doing. She may not know terms for fighting like Hal, but she can understand. That's all she need to spear those pirates like stationary training dolls with a spear... on a ship... that's in battle... while having long hair.

Yeah, I wouldn't be able to do that ever unless I cut my hair either.

I'm 14. I started his books when I was... 13? I was way too dim to see all the details in the books- (the covers of his last series suck for the American versions, especially on Book 4: The Battle for Skandia- seriously, it makes me cringe) but as I age, instead of tiring, I see more. I see more, and I think harder. In all, his books are genious.

As far as helping you pick out books for someone to read, you should seriously consider getting them Book One of "The Rangers Apprentice" by John, it'll help them decide if they like his writing style or not- or even simply the items inside. Besides, if they keep reading, the first series will help you later understand the next.

Just make sure to get the books in order. I skipped one and was completely lost. I went back though, so everything males sense now.

The covers may look old fashioned or bad (depends which books and which country) but the inside is full of great thought and details.

If you want your kid to learn how to deal with diplomacy and think through situations more, I recommend and highly commend this author's books.

(For the record, I'm on tumblr. Look up Norhacane and you'll find me- I stalk that tag. I've always wondered if there was a fandom for either series....)
