The Heron I DonHeron I don know how we survived weeks in that massive storm on the Endless Ocean but Hal s smartness always amazes me The land we ve found has plenty of food and shelter #so we ll wait until the winds change #we ll wait until the winds change trying to find our way back to Skandia Lydia and Thorn found claw marks on tree from a bear that s three meters tall There s also evidence of people spying on us We have no idea if they re friendly or dangerous so we re on guard at all times I ve ust been awakened from my sleep because Hal needs me at the
palisade It seems an old man and two armed warriors have ust shownIt seems an old man and two armed warriors have ust shown outside our defensesThis book captured the magic of the acclaimed Ranger s Apprentice and the other books in the Brotherband series but it lacked a little of the adventure and intrigue The beginning of the book had the adventure of surviving a massive storm on the ocean but I found myself losing interest It s hard to keep things interesting when the characters setting and problem don t change which is what happened when the characters were battling Mother Nature Once they found land they needed to survive for weeks but a significant problem wasn t presented until a huge bear showed up The threat of the Ghostfaces was hinted at mid book but they weren t an actual problem until later on The action built up to final battle but even that wasn t much of a contest I found this plot lacking when compared to other outstanding books by Flanagan I am actually a bit tired of this series and I only picked this book up because it was a free audio book If you re enjoying the series then my review is probably invalid to you anyway My recommendation is ust to not get the audio version the narrator is rather irritatingThe good side Edvin was a far interesting and developed character Lydia was also a interesting character and she finally stopped saying old man to Thorne Jesper actually was given a good part to playThe bad side Kloof the crew of the Heron were in a ferocious storm no mention They were dying of thirst in an empty ocean no mention of Kloof who would certainly drink a lot This wouldn t have been a problem had she been left behind however she turned up suddenly when they needed her and immed. When the Herons are caught in a massive storm at sea they're blown far off course so far that they wash up on the shores of a land to the west that Hal can't recognise from his maps They sense they're being watched but don't encounter the locals until they. .
Iately disappeared again The Ghostfaces themselves were pathetic and only turned up in the last few chapters Not exactly a villain to actually interest a reader It seems kinda racist for the native tribe to be helpless against the Ghostfaces I m sure they would have had at least one person in the 5 different tribes who could come up with a solution and have to be rescued by the European crew of 8 Plus why would a group of people spontaneously start singing to welcome their sudden visitors John Flanagan does not fail to thrill in this latest instalment of the Brotherband Chronicles Fresh from their latest adventure the Heron Brotherband is thrown into an even thrilling adventure Lost in a freak storm they are driven far over the Endless Sea to a land now too dissimilar to the New World They make new friends fall in love interact with a uniue culture and forge a bond with THE PEOPLE OF THE LAND BY HELPING THEM FIGHT people of the land by helping them fight defeat their enemies the Ghostfaces Once again Hal shows his uick thinking and wonderful sailing ability Thorn displays his usual courage and discipline Stig falls on love Jesper reminds us of hisahem uniue skills Lydia Ulf Wulf Ingvar and Stefan do what they know how to #do best It s a fast paced story no boring bits The author cuts straight to the point without #best It s
A Fast Paced Storyfast paced story boring bits The author cuts straight to the point without embellishment The characters are well fleshed out uniue and have original personalities These uniue personalities interact in an exciting way that leaves you wanting to know about their latest adventure I m still enjoying John Flanagan s Brotherband Chronicles despite being out of my teens I couldn t have enjoyed it even if the books came out when I was younger I eagerly await the next book in the series 5 out of 5 stars for me A very good storybut he killed someone I liked again pouts This was very different to the others in the Brotherband series and I believed added depth to the characters and to the story as a whole Its like the series grew up The story itself was meaningful engaging and full of adventure hitting a new element every chapter or so Entertaining and meaningful in way than you expect This time John Flanagan found a brand new race of people to not so subtly put a parallel version of into his fantasy world 45 STARSO.
