The best-selling epic continues!
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.
The epic series from Ranger's Apprentice author John Flanagan continues, delivering pulse-pounding adventure and fun.

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.
There is not much that can compare with the weight of a book in your hand but the audio version of this book is very good!
It's predecessors The Outcasts, and The Invaders, both wonderful books as well. Also the Ranger's Apprentice Books which are the companion series.
Yes I have and he has done a great job in all of the ones I have listened to.
The wise and the cunning.
The quick wit of the characters through all of the books.
The final battle was gripping. Didn't seem long enough.
Great story by John as usual. Picks up right where it should. Finish off with this great ending!
I love the main character and all his companions. True that nothing truly bad ever happens, but you don't have to worry about falling in love with a character and having them die on you. The characters are smart and they all have their day in the story, so the main character isn't the only one with awesome power. I also like how the characters use their brain and their brawn. Its a wonderful story
Audiobook Junkie... Love all types of Science Fiction
The characters stupidity wears on you after a while and Flanagan's need to explain everything is tiring as well. Things were very formulaic and there were no suprrises. This series should have ended on book 2 but apparently Flanagan was in this one for the money. The performance was decent. Although it seemed the accents for the characters in far away lands were very similar to the Scandian's and each other. There was a point in part 2 where the audio seemed to be messed up as well. I would say if you came this far give it a try if you feel the need for completion. You will get a solid ending.
