Publisher's Summary

Hal and the Herons have done the impossible. This group of outsiders has beaten out the strongest, most skilled young warriors in all of Skandia to win the Brotherband competition. But their celebration comes to an abrupt end when the Skandians' most sacred artifact, the Andomal, is stolen - and the Herons are to blame. To find redemption they must track down the thief Zavac and recover the Andomal. But that means traversing stormy seas, surviving a bitter winter, and battling a group of deadly pirates willing to protect their prize at all costs.

Even Brotherband training and the help of Skandia's greatest warrior may not be enough to ensure that Hal and his friends return home with the Andomal - or their lives.

An excellent adventure

The Invaders is an excellent adventure in the Brotherband Chronicles. This time Hal and his Heron Brotherband are on the trail of Zavac and his crew of cutthroat pirates, on a quest to retrieve the stolen Andomal and regain their honour. The second story in this series, that promises to be even better than John Flanagan's bestselling Ranger's Apprentice series. John Keating gives a reasonable performance, but his Skandian accents are terrible.

Good but a little familiar...

This is a fun and entertaining story, a decent enough book, but it's very familiar to the Rangers Apprentice series.
I thought the narrator, John Keating, was good in this one. I didn't enjoy him so much in the first book but he's much better in this one.
If you want a completely original story, this might let you down a bit. If you're you want something with the same feel and character dynamics as TRA series, you'll likely enjoy this.

Unusual choice for a sixty eight year old woman

As a child some of my favourite books were Viking stories by Henry Treece and the saga of asgard by roger lancelyn green. I discover the brotherband chronicles while listening to the first one with my grandson. This second book is even better because of the addition of a strong female character. I love it !

fantastic world

I have read all the rangers apprentice and the brotherband series countless times since they came out when I was a teen. Now 30 years old and still can't get enough of this incredible world full of adventure, danger and emotion.

Entertaining

I wonder who the target audience for these books is ? I think they'd be great for kids but I'm loving them too. I feel like a bit of a Peter Pan but why not ? Nothing wrong with escaping into yourhful.fantasy

Mr John Keating is NOT a narrator’s bootlace.

John Flanagan. I am an ardent fan of all your books, but, I AM NOT A FAN OF JOHN KEATING. His reading is of someone talking down to his listener because of his many mispronunciations. He calls the fish bream insread of ‘brim’. And PAR-TICK-U-LAR-LEE I cannot abide his many pauses where they should not be. Please please PLEASE get rid of him.
