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.

The inventive side of the young boys.
The old one armed man, as he is so talented.
Not bad, he did a good job. He is one of my favorite voice actors.
Yeah when the young boy got hit by an arrow in the boat. It was very predictable that it would happen but it was also a scene that had to happen in one way or another to move the character development forwards.
Good book. Listened to the whole thing in one shot. Love the inventive side of the characters. The story line is quite predictable it however still holds my attention.
John Keating does an amazing job of narrating. I've enjoyed listening to him narrate The Ranger's Apprentice Series also.
John Keating performs all the characters' voices.
Yes, The story keeps you enthralled and gives the story a realistic approach.
Hal, He uses his brains while others just use their brawn. By doing this, he helps others find their own abilities.
Consistency in levels
Yes, However I took many to complete
having the rest of the book would be nice. the storie is great but it leaves one feeling cheated by cuting it so short and ending so crudely. i feel like i just got cheated out of my money on this book.
Don't buy this book when it is only 6 hrs 54 mins long. It is not the whole book. It ends at page 243 on a 400+ page book. I re-downloaded it to see if I was mistaken, but I am not. All of his other books are 12+ hours. The parts that were done were incredible. Will be a great book as soon as they get the second part to it.
Get the rest of the BOOK
Anger that it wasn't all included.
Great continuation to the brother band chronicles series. The narration was superb as usual. This is a great young adult adventure story. I recommend the first book in the series to start. But it's not necessary to have listened to the ranger apprentice books.
I am an avid reader (or listener). I love fantasy, fiction, sci-fi, historical fiction, and mystery. I stay clear of the romance genre. I truly appreciate stories that can bring families together such as Ranger's Apprentice (John Flanagan), Brotherband Chronicles (John Flanagan), and The Overland Chronicles (Suzanne Collins).
Exciting! Adventure! Humor!
Any arguments between Wulf and Vulf.
He has a great accent that draws the reader in and contributes greatly to the creation of the characters.
Engrossed a family with the youngest child of 8 and the adults (whose age I dare not put up here). We sit around listening to it as a family and everyone is laughing and sitting on the edge of their seats. No one wants to turn it off and when my mother says "Time's Up!" Everyone regards her as the most evil creature in the world.
I am the oldest of 5 girls. This book, typically considered a "boys story" is great for all ages, all genders.
If you like this story, try John Flanagan's "Ranger's Apprentice" series.
Do not try listening to this without first listening to Book 1. This picks up where Book 1 left off.
This series was very enjoyable. The narrator was exceptionally consistent in voice for the various characters, making the book come to life. I had purchased this for my boys (ages 10 - 22) to listen to on long trips. As they would play over the car stereo, I got interested and even my wife has been excited to share this adventure with our boys. Another success for John Flanagan.
