Publisher's Summary

From John Flanagan, author of the worldwide best-selling Ranger's Apprentice, comes a brand-new chapter in the adventures of young Skandians who form a different kind of family - a brotherband.

When the Brotherband crew are caught in a massive storm at sea, they're blown far off course and wash up on the shores of a land so far west that Hal can't recognize it from any of his maps. Eerily, the locals are nowhere in sight, yet the Herons have a creeping feeling they are being watched.

Suddenly the silence is broken when a massive marauding bear appears, advancing on two children. The crew springs into action and rescues the children from the bear's clutches, which earns them the gratitude and friendship of the local Mawagansett tribe, who finally reveal themselves. But the peace is short lived. The Ghostfaces, a ruthless, warlike tribe who shave their heads and paint their faces white, are on the warpath once more. It's been 10 years since they raided the Mawagansett village, but they're coming back to pillage and wreak destruction. As the enemy approaches, the Herons gear up to help their new friends repel an invasion.

In this sixth book in the action-packed Brotherband Chronicles, the Herons find themselves in unfamiliar lands and prepare for battle with a ruthless, unknown enemy.

Critic Reviews

"[A] vigorous offshoot of the Ranger’s Apprentice series." (Booklist)

"This enjoyable, old-fashioned tale should have easy appeal for Flanagan’s many fans, who are already invested in the world he’s created." (Publishers Weekly)

"Well developed and vocabulary rich, with endearing new characters and a rousing adventure that assures new episodes, this book will delight Flanagan fans." (School Library Journal)

A Natural Progression

A nice addition to the Brotherband Series. Not sure it is as good as the others. Still a very good story, if a little predictable. Still given it's intended audience easily forgiven.

great book

i love his writing style and the concepts behind each of these books. this one doesn't seem quite as up to par as his others but I'm sure with multiple ongoing series and such awesome beginning books in the series it's a hard thing to top, but it was still another great book.

Please write faster Mr. Flanagan!

John Flanagan is one of those writers that can transport his readers on the adventure with his characters. He has chosen well in his narrator John Keating. He enhances the story with a unique voice for each character. My students love these books; all the way through high school and they keep reading them in college, and I love them as an adult. He is one of those small group of authors that can appeal across generational lines because he focuses on a good story with strong characters. It is so hard to wait for his next book!

Hal and Stig

Was a little disappointed with the ending. Seemed forced just to further the plot along and provide resolution to the conflict of Hal and Stig. Still a wonderful book despite that minor flaw.
