The adventure continues in the Ranger's Apprentice companion trilogy!

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.

    " Another great book. Flanagan keeps the story active and unpredictable. The characters are developing a little more and more all the time, though he could do more. It was hard to put the book down each day--I just wanted to keep reading and find out what would happen next. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheila | 6/3/2013

    " Loved the story line, bummed that the story wasn't finished, and also bummed that the author decided to use a few bad words in his writing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott Theis | 4/21/2013

    " The only problem was that I couldn't put it down. I finished it too fast. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emma | 3/7/2013

    " Another great book from John Flanagan. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sally Harris | 2/28/2013

    " I enjoyed the first book in this series a little more than this one. It seems to take quite a long time to get going at the beginning of the story, which would be ok if you were reading them one after the other, but having read other books in between, it seems a bit tedious. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 The Celine Solution | 12/27/2012

    " Funny how most of the book was about them preparing to battle Zavac but those parts were the more enjoyable parts for me than the actual fight scenes itself... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 June | 8/30/2012

    " I am enjoying this series as much as I did Flanagan's Ranger's Apprentice series. In this one Hal and his Brotherband go after the pirates who stole the Andomal. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aruale | 7/9/2012

    " Great addition to the last book. Full of action and adventure but not too confusing. Love the characters in this one! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Molly | 7/9/2012

    " Another John Flanagan book. More battles. More battle training. More witty banter between the unusually smart and awesome characters. Yup, I liked it. Nothing new, but give me the next book please! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aubrey | 6/12/2012

    " i really liked it though i hated when Zaroc got away but Hal did the right thing by helping Svengal. And although i like Lydia and how she takes care of herself and doesnt let people mess with her i hate how Hal and Stig both have a crush on her. other than that though a really good book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 5/24/2012

    " This was another action-packed, fun installment in the world of Flanagan. I enjoy his stories because they are fun adventures, and this one was as good as usual. "
