Summary

Hal and the Herons have done the impossible. This group of outsiders has beaten out the strongest, most skilled young warriors in all of Skandia to win the Brotherband competition. But their celebration comes to an abrupt end when the Skandians' most sacred artifact, the Andomal, is stolen - and the Herons are to blame. To find redemption they must track down the thief Zavac and recover the Andomal. But that means traversing stormy seas, surviving a bitter winter, and battling a group of deadly pirates willing to protect their prize at all costs.

Even Brotherband training and the help of Skandia's greatest warrior may not be enough to ensure that Hal and his friends return home with the Andomal - or their lives.

Good but a little familiar...

This is a fun and entertaining story, a decent enough book, but it's very familiar to the Rangers Apprentice series.
I thought the narrator, John Keating, was good in this one. I didn't enjoy him so much in the first book but he's much better in this one.
If you want a completely original story, this might let you down a bit. If you're you want something with the same feel and character dynamics as TRA series, you'll likely enjoy this.

An excellent adventure

The Invaders is an excellent adventure in the Brotherband Chronicles. This time Hal and his Heron Brotherband are on the trail of Zavac and his crew of cutthroat pirates, on a quest to retrieve the stolen Andomal and regain their honour. The second story in this series, that promises to be even better than John Flanagan's bestselling Ranger's Apprentice series. John Keating gives a reasonable performance, but his Skandian accents are terrible.
