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.

Follows the "Rangers Apprentice" formula

Would you consider the audio edition of The Invaders to be better than the print version?

I really enjoyed the audio version on this book, however, I haven't read the print version, so I cannot really provide much of a comparison.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I really didn't have a favorite character, as the overall book was well written and the character development was fantastic.

What about John Keating’s performance did you like?

His voice and demeanor on the book is something that my family searches for. There are two performers on the Rangers Apprentice series, and John's voice conveyed the characters so much better.

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

no

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this book. The first installment of this book was quite slow moving, which almost turned me off of the series, however, the character development had continued into the second book, which provided a decent amount of depth. The way John F. captures the different personalities and their interactions really impressed me, which led me to listen to this book and definitely the next one when it comes out.

Great Listen

If you could sum up The Invaders in three words, what would they be?

Just like "The Ranger's Apprentice" series, the Brotherband Chronicles are fast-paced, with wonderful characters and lots of action.

Good book with virtue

Nice, adventurous story. Reading is a little slower than I like, but can speed it up with my smart phone, so it's not a problem.

To all the MORONS IT is the whole book

What made the experience of listening to The Invaders the most enjoyable?

I highly enjoyed listening to both the parts each 6 hours each. OMG 12 hours. It's really an enjoyable continuation of the series, and an honor to the Rangers Series.

Which scene was your favorite?

I actually enjoyed the lighthearted scenes in the training camp before the persuit was started a new.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, but I don't have 12 hours available in the day.

Great Book

The only thing that annoys me is that its Viking based and they keep saying Pirates but I feel that vikings would have might have a better word for their time. I keep thinking of british 'golden age' pirates vs Vikings back when Britain was run by saxons. Dons't much matter, this is a great story and I love it.

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.
