In this thrilling link to the chain of the Brotherband series, John Flanagan has literally crossed the borders of the Endless sea to capture us in his writing. When the crew of the Heron and their young captain are caught in a storm and blown across the ocean to lands unknown, they don’t realize that they will have to battle a three-meter-tall bear with a lousy mood, fight a native over a lady and be needed to fight a foreign war for the natives welcomed them in this new land. The audience will feel as if they are in the story all the way, whether in Hal’s beloved Heron, pitched and tossed in the sea, or in the foreign forests looking over their backs at shadows and noise in the dark. Spun on a spindle, ingredients being suspense, mystery, a little bit of romance and a lot of thrill, it is sure to attract audiences of all ages. It will keep the younger generations in awe and hope of being in as thrill as Hal and his loyal group.
