Product Description

John Flanagan, author of the international phenomenon Ranger's Apprentice, creates a world of seafaring adventures, treacherous pirates and epic battles in Brotherband.

In Skandia, there is only one way to become a warrior. Boys are chosen for teams called brotherbands and must endure three months of gruelling training in seamanship, weapons and battle tactics. It's brotherband against brotherband, fighting it out in a series of challenges. There can be only one winner.

When Hal Mikkelson finds himself the unwilling leader of a brotherband made up of outcasts, he must step up to the challenge. The Heron brotherband might not have the strength and numbers of the other two teams, but with inventiveness, ingenuity and courage on their side, they might just surprise everyone.

About the Author

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.

WRITE A REVIEW

Fabulous for teens (and adults!)

5

I bought the Flanagan Brotherband set for my teenaged grandchildren. My 14yo grandson devoured them over a weekend and his sister read them over the coming week. Neither of them could put the books down - they found them exciting, fast-paced and pleasurable to read. My granddaughter is somewhat of a writer, and she loved Flanagan's style. The kids say they would recommend the books to anyone, saying also that they would encourage an unentusiastic reader to read!!

Fantastic

5

The BrotherBand series is every bit as good as the Rangers Apprentice Series. Our whole family is thoroughly enjoying it. It is very inspiring for young boys in particular. It is good to see strong male role models for teenage boys in modern literature. The men and boys in these books have their heart in the right place, show morals and intelligence. They can also appreciate their own strengths and weaknesses as well as those of others. They usually grow and learn as the books progress - teamwork is a strong theme. It is excellent and highly recommended.
