Return to the seafaring world of Hal and his intrepid ship's crew in the fourth book of John Flanagan's epic Brotherband series.

When the Heron brotherband become the Skandian duty ship to the Kingdom of Araluen, they're excited at the challenges ahead. Hal, Stig, Thorn and the Herons eagerly set off for the trip – with an unexpected new crew member aboard.

But an enemy from their past returns, throwing the Herons into a dangerous quest to free captured Araluans from the slave market in Socorro. Even with the help of an Araluan Ranger, the task may be too much.

        Comments about Slaves of Socorro:

        My eight-year-old son loves this series. He's a real bookworm, and he's gone through a very keen Brotherband phase. He loves the swashbuckling action and adventure. He was delighted to discover the author's signature on his copy.

          Comments about Slaves of Socorro:

          I wasn't expecting another Brotherband book, so 'Slaves of Socorro' was a really awesome surprise.
          I love (and have) all of John Flanagan's Rasnger's Apprentice (RA) and Brotherband (BB) books, and this one is definitely worth reading and re-reading. There was not much action in the first three-quarters of the book, but the last quarter was really action-packed!
          John Flanagan has once again written a great book that you can't put down until you finish it!

            Booktopia does it again offering a signed copy by Aussie author John Flanagan. Slaves of Socorro is the fourth book of the Brotherband original 'trilogy' and continues the range with swashbuckling adventure best suited to younger readers who have been with the series from book 1.

                  I really like how he writes. It is engaging, humorous, exciting, entertaining. Never drags.
                  My problem is I keep comparing it to "Ranger's Apprentice", and that series is my first "love" in his books. However, this is a close second. LOVE his books. Writes extremely well. Always fun.

                  John Flanagan's bestselling Ranger’s Apprentice adventure series originally comprised twenty short stories, which John wrote to encourage his twelve-year-old son, Michael, to enjoy reading. The series has come a long way since then.

                  Now sold to more than twenty countries, the series regularly appears on the New York Times Bestseller List and has been shortlisted in children's book awards in Australia and overseas. John, a former television and advertising writer, lives with his wife, Leonie, in the Sydney beachside suburb of Manly. He is currently writing further titles in the Ranger’s Apprentice series.
