The Herons take to the high seas to fend off pirates and rescue the heir to an empire in the newest adventure from John Flanagan, author of the worldwide bestselling Ranger's Apprentice!

Includes BONUS content—a brand-new Ranger's Apprentice short story featuring fan-favorites Will and Maddie!

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. Slipping out of Hallasholm under the cover of darkness, the brotherband sets sail to recover the boy from his kidnappers, heading south to the island of Santorillos where a near-impenetrable fortress stands atop a cliff, surrounded by a lagoon—a caldera—formed by the crater of a volcano.

In this explosive seventh book in the action-packed Brotherband Chronicles, the Herons battle pirates amid stormy seas as the fate of an empire rests on their shoulders.

This was a good and enjoyable book but it had a hurried and lazy feeling conclusion which left you feeling let down.

If you like the Brotherband series I think you'll enjoy this one. However, I wonder how many more if these the author will write because he appears to be running out of storylines. This book was a bit less involving and, IMO, relies a bit to much on luck rather than the skills of the Heron's crew. I guess it just didn't have the same level of plot, intrigue, and depth I've come to expect, though it is still a good book and worth reading. I hope the author's next installment returns to his 5 star level. I really enjoy this series.
