Description

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.

John Flanagan, author of the international phenomenon Ranger's Apprentice, creates a new cast of characters to populate his world of Skandians and Araluens, a world millions of young readers and listeners around the world have come to know and admire. Full of seafaring adventures and epic battles, Book 1 of The Brotherband Chronicles is sure to thrill fans of Ranger's Apprentice while enticing a whole new generation just now discovering the books.

A great tale

As usual Flanagan has created a story that entertains and teaches at the same time. Bullys who wound through words and deeds, personal and interpersonal challenges (alcoholism, facing disabilities, etc) all addressed through the bonds of friendship and teamwork. Great for kids and something for adults too.

very well done

I never read the Ranger's Apprentice series, but watched it circulate heavily in my library. I chose to start with Brotherband Chronicles as I was browsing new releases in Audible for my commute (I hook my Kindle up) and decided it was time to see what the craze was about. I have to say the storytelling was great and I look forward to downloading the next one.

A New Adventure

this is just what I needed after I finished the last of the Rangers Apprentice series. An entirely new crew of characters and some old ones as well, makes for an exciting read or listening to! I'm on to book to in this series!!!!

Wonderful!

I was a little anxious to listen to this because I loved the Rangers apprentice and thought the Brotherband couldn’t be as good. However I was very pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed it so much. A lot of the elements were similar to Rangers Apprentice but different enough to make it a new story. I’m very much looking forward to the next book.

just as good as rangers apprentice

I wondered if the author would be able to separate this story from rangers apprentice and he did with no problem. having the same narrator made it hard to separate the stories but he is such a good narrator, he pulled it up off. starting book 2 now!

spellbinding

The characters are verify and we'll developed. As always John Keating is a wonderful reader, giving each chapter his own voice.
