Hal and his brotherband crew are hot on the trail of the pirate Zavac and they have one thing only on their minds: Stopping the bloodthirsty thief before he can do more damage. Of course, they also know Zavac has the Andomal, the priceless Skandian artifact stolen when the brotherband let down their guard. The chase leads down mighty rivers, terrifying rapids, to the lawless fortress of Ragusa. If Hal is to succeed, he will need to go beyond his brotherband training. He will need to challenge the pirate one-on-one, knowing only one of them will survive.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 William | 2/15/2014

    " The Hunters is the final book in the Brotherband Chronicles trilogy written by the author of the Ranger's Apprentice series, John Flanagan. In this finale, the reader follows Hal and the Herons as they reach the end of their long journey in search of the one thing that will clear their names, the one thing that made them pariahs within the Skandian world: the most prized possession of the Skandians, the Andomal. This is a very satisfying conclusion to the trilogy because John Flanagan offers all the usual action that is present in his fantastical series, but he offers more engaging characters and their changes throughout the story. If you've have read the first two books of this series than this one is a must. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bailey | 1/29/2014

    " Has to be my favorite brotherband just because they introduce Lydia. The conflict between some of the guys and her is hysterical. I was pretty disappointed with the final confrontation though. But at least it was something after all those moments where they ALMOST HAD THEM. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deb | 1/29/2014

    " This is a great series for boys as it is about a crew on a ship who are chasing a pirate. It contains lots of adventures. They picked up a girl in the last book who helps them through this adventure. Thorn, an old Skandian icon, is the best character as he interacts with the young crew, the pirates, and the magistrates. "

    " I have to agree with my buddy James.Iit's even better than rangers apprentice it makes me so emotional when I am reading. I hate turgsurd. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roberta | 1/2/2014

    " A good conclusion to this series. The characterization is not quite as good as in the others. The character of Lydia in partiicluar seems one-dimensional. "

    " With the long explanations during the build up, the resolution was too quick. "

    " I've said it before. I'll say it again. John Flanagan rules at this style of novel for young people. Classy writing, great characters, top plotting. All class. Readers should be aware that this is much more blood-thirsty than the Rangers Apprentice series. Recommended! "

About the Author
Author John Flanagan

John A. Flanagan grew up in Sydney, Australia hoping to be a writer. It wasn’t until he wrote a highly uncomplimentary poem about a senior executive at the agency he worked, however, that his talent was revealed. It turned out one of the company directors agreed with John’s assessment of the executive, and happily agreed to train John in copywriting. After writing advertising copy for the next two decades, John teamed with an old friend to develop a television sitcom, Hey Dad!, which went on to air for eight years. John began writing the Ranger’s Apprentice series as a way to encourage his son, Michael, to enjoy reading. He currently lives in the suburb of Manly, Australia, with his wife.
