Reviews

Having sold millions of his Ranger's Apprentice books all over the world, John Flanagan now has a new series on offer and it is just as swashbuckling and adventurous as his last. Brotherband is set in Skandia - a cold, Viking-inspired country that many of his Rangers' fans know well, but this time with new characters who are just as intriguing.

This is an addictive and satisfying read for 10 to 16 year olds.

Weekend Australian

A rattling good story . . . Brotherband will engage and delight readers as much as the Ranger's Apprentice series does . . . John Flanagan has cleverly reinvigorated his world with this satisfying novel and its engaging central character.
