In Hallasholm, Stig is contesting the annual Maktig competition to decide Skandia's greatest warrior. But a late-night knock on the door brings someone Stig never expected to see again, along with a request the Herons are hard-pressed to refuse: a rescue mission of epic proportions. Across the ocean, the southern city-state of Byzantos is plagued by a crew of pirates who've kidnapped the son of Empress Justina.

I love listening to John keating's books.

give both the Rangers apprentice and the brotherband chronicles a listen, you'll be glad you did.

I've listened to all these books.
I love these stories, they have brought many moments of laughter, sadness and pride mixed in. I can't wait till the next one to come out. if your reading this review, I'd say give this series a listen, it has a way of pulling you in as if it were for real.

They are outcasts. Hal, Stig, and the others - they are the boys the others want no part of. Skandians, as any reader of Ranger's Apprentice could tell you, are known for their size and strength. Not these boys. Yet that doesn't mean they don't have skills. And courage - which they will need every ounce of to do battle at sea against the other bands, the Wolves and the Sharks, in the ultimate race. The icy waters make for a treacherous playing field - especially when not everyone thinks of it as playing.
