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.

We as a family love the Ranger books. The story is superb, and if you listen carefully you will pick out wonderful historical insights. I was the narration were better. Don't me wrong, the reading is fluid and well done, but to my ear, sometimes it is hard to hear the switch between characters. The narrator uses similar inflaction and tone for many characters which flattens the story a bit. Still, this book in audible form is highly recommended.
