Publisher's Summary

The best-selling epic continues!

Hal and his brotherband crew are hot on the trail of the pirate Zavac and they have one thing only on their minds: Stopping the bloodthirsty thief before he can do more damage. Of course, they also know Zavac has the Andomal, the priceless Skandian artifact stolen when the brotherband let down their guard. The chase leads down mighty rivers, terrifying rapids, to the lawless fortress of Ragusa. If Hal is to succeed, he will need to go beyond his brotherband training. He will need to challenge the pirate one-on-one, knowing only one of them will survive.

The epic series from Ranger's Apprentice author John Flanagan continues, delivering pulse-pounding adventure and fun.

John Flanagan is an amazing writer

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

There is not much that can compare with the weight of a book in your hand but the audio version of this book is very good!

What other book might you compare The Hunters to and why?

It's predecessors The Outcasts, and The Invaders, both wonderful books as well. Also the Ranger's Apprentice Books which are the companion series.

Have you listened to any of Richard Keating’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes I have and he has done a great job in all of the ones I have listened to.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The wise and the cunning.

Scandians love a good Saga and so did we.

This series was very enjoyable. The narrator was exceptionally consistent in voice for the various characters, making the book come to life. I had purchased this for my boys (ages 10 - 22) to listen to on long trips. As they would play over the car stereo, I got interested and even my wife has been excited to share this adventure with our boys. Another success for John Flanagan.

Doesn't pick up where 2nd book left off

The beginning is a little confusing as the 3rd book does not pick up where the 2nd one left off.

This almost tops Ranger's Apprentice...

for years I've been listening to the Ranger's Apprentice. I've enjoyed John Flanagan's stories read by John Keating. Having always ignored Brotherband for some reason. It was a mistake! Hal and crew of the Herron have made me proud to have raised two boys that can take care of themselves.

Epic ending

Even though I knew that the protagonists were all going to come out alive, I was still on the edge of my seat. that ending was so epic.
