Eight boys are about to take on a crew of fifty cut-throat pirates . . . is this an impossible quest?

Hal and the Heron brotherband are on the trail of Zavac and his precious cargo. Will they be able to find the pirates when the weather clears? And when they do, how can they possibly beat the mighty Raven and its crew of vicious cut-throats and killers?

A chance discovery will lead them to their prey, but the pirates have a well-fortified position. The Herons must drive out the invaders - and to succeed, Hal will need to devise a foolproof plan. In the icy waters of the Stormwhite, the smallest mistake could prove fatal.

      Another brilliant book by John Flanagan. From a 12 year old to 70 year young grandmother, we all loved it.

        This book continues in the excellent style attributed to Flanagan associated with his Rangers Apprentice series. My son was captivated and indeed the whole family have fought over who reads this book next.

        It is definitely a book in a series. Better if know the characters etc from first book. Can't wait for the story to "take off". Needed more action for my taste. I expected better, as first series was outstanding!!
