Publisher's Summary

From John Flanagan, author of the worldwide best-selling Ranger's Apprentice, comes a brand-new chapter in the adventures of young Skandians who form a different kind of family - a brotherband.

When the Brotherband crew are caught in a massive storm at sea, they're blown far off course and wash up on the shores of a land so far west that Hal can't recognize it from any of his maps. Eerily, the locals are nowhere in sight, yet the Herons have a creeping feeling they are being watched.

Suddenly the silence is broken when a massive marauding bear appears, advancing on two children. The crew springs into action and rescues the children from the bear's clutches, which earns them the gratitude and friendship of the local Mawagansett tribe, who finally reveal themselves. But the peace is short lived. The Ghostfaces, a ruthless, warlike tribe who shave their heads and paint their faces white, are on the warpath once more. It's been 10 years since they raided the Mawagansett village, but they're coming back to pillage and wreak destruction. As the enemy approaches, the Herons gear up to help their new friends repel an invasion.

In this sixth book in the action-packed Brotherband Chronicles, the Herons find themselves in unfamiliar lands and prepare for battle with a ruthless, unknown enemy.

A Natural Progression

A nice addition to the Brotherband Series. Not sure it is as good as the others. Still a very good story, if a little predictable. Still given it's intended audience easily forgiven.

great book

i love his writing style and the concepts behind each of these books. this one doesn't seem quite as up to par as his others but I'm sure with multiple ongoing series and such awesome beginning books in the series it's a hard thing to top, but it was still another great book.

Please write faster Mr. Flanagan!

John Flanagan is one of those writers that can transport his readers on the adventure with his characters. He has chosen well in his narrator John Keating. He enhances the story with a unique voice for each character. My students love these books; all the way through high school and they keep reading them in college, and I love them as an adult. He is one of those small group of authors that can appeal across generational lines because he focuses on a good story with strong characters. It is so hard to wait for his next book!

Good but I think I am stopping here

SOME TINY PREDICATABLE SPOILERS - Though the author of this book took the reader on a new adventure it really getting to be too predictable to me. They go, they see new things, they meet new people, they fight, they win, no main character dies, the end.

John Flanagan, is a good author. Though i like his writing and I like his characters he is not gutsy enough for me. He tackles tough situations such as slavery, drugs, abandon kids etc... but he never takes on death of a main character. They can be up against ridiculous odds and nobody ever dies except extra characters he seems to throw in just to get some kind of death impact. It reminds me of watching GI JOE when i was a kid, the good guys would run across a bazillion lasers and nobody ever died but the poor bad guys would die if just one single laser came their way. I get it, this is young Adult and its probably me being in the wrong genre but I felt I had to justify to someone, somewhere to why I am stopping this series here.

Getting lost with the crew was a fun adventure.

I thought this was a welcome change. Instead of the Brotherband having a mission to take on, we get to see them lost and fighting for survival. I liked this book because you really get to know each character a little better and really appreciate the relationship they have as a brotherband. #find#yourself, #work#together, #survive. #tagsgiving" and "#sweepstakes

Keeps getting better

Really enjoying this series. Always leaves me wanting to hear more. Every character had their moments and that doesn't happen often
