From the author of the mega-selling Ranger's Apprentice!
Hal and his fellow Herons have returned home to Skandia after defeating the pirate captain Zavac and reclaiming Skandia's most prized artifact, the Andomal. With their honor restored, the Herons turn to a new mission: tracking down an old rival turned bitter enemy. Tursgud - leader of the Shark Brotherband and Hal's constant opponent - has turned from a bullying youth into a pirate and slave trader. After Tursgud captures 12 Araluen villagers to sell as slaves, the Heron crew sails into action...with the help of one of Araluen's finest Rangers!
In this fourth book in the Brotherband Chronicles, a new battle unfolds as old rivalries are renewed, peace treaties are put to the test, and the action builds to a pulse-pounding finale. Perfect for fans of J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, T.H. White's The Sword in the Stone, Christopher Paolini's Eragon series, and George R. R. Martin's Game of Thrones/ A Song of Ice and Fire series.

John Flanagan and John Keating did another superb job. Hal and his brother band do their duty!
I liked all of it. if you enjoy fantasy tales of medieval knights and stuff, john flanagins world of the rangers apprentice always seems to delight with something new. this is the first time i reaf his books in the audible version and i felt the english accented voice of the narrator made it even more believable and brings you into the story quite well.
The way these books are written they almost make the reader part of the adventure. One of the things that I liked about this book was that it didn't have all that unnecessary sex junk that a lot of adult books have, it was just a great book that anyone can read.
There is a place in the second part where they are escaping from a town of slavers and they are cornered in a street. What happens next is very surprising.
Can't wait to read the next book.
In Slaves of Socorro Hal and his crew are working with an Arualuen Ranger, on a quest to free slaves from the slave markets in Socorro. They also pursue Tursgurd who has turned pirate and slaves. It is another excellent read in John Flanagan' s Brotherband Chronicles. A great listen as well.
