Publisher's Summary

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.

    "First battle for the young Brotherband"
    What did you love best about The Invaders?

    The inventive side of the young boys.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The old one armed man, as he is so talented.


    Have you listened to any of John Keating’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not bad, he did a good job. He is one of my favorite voice actors.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "waste of time wait for book 3"
    What would have made The Invaders better?

    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.


    Have you listened to any of John Keating???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    most excellent

    "Don't buy! Not whole book."
    What would have made The Invaders better?

    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.


    What could John Flanagan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Get the rest of the BOOK


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Good


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger that it wasn't all included.

    This time we get a bit more glimpse into the characters that surround Hal. It is nice hearing that he does not have to solve everything.
