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.Enter a world of wolfships, epic battles and treachery in the cold northern seas. Enter the world of Brotherband. "With the writing style of a poet and a story that would make any boy scout jump for joy, John Flanagan has written an adventure book that I would not be surprised to see alongside Eragon and Lord of the Rings … A definite recommendation to anyone who likes a good uplifting story."  Ballarat Courier"John Flanagan tells a good story about working together. He shows that retaliation isn't the only acceptable way to solve things. I really enjoyed the description of the sea voyages, the armour and the fighting. I give this book four-and-a-half stars."  Joseph Wassington, Townsville Bulletin"With the wonderfully large world that John Flanagan created in Ranger's ApprenticeThe Invaders will have you wishing you were a Skandian yourself!"  Harry Dempsey, age 13, Launceston Examiner"Flanagan maintains the suspense, and there is a satisfying battle, but above all it is the interplay of characters that hook the reader."  Jo Goodman, Magpies
