They are outcasts. Hal, Stig, and the others - they are the boys the others want no part of. Skandians, as any reader of Ranger's Apprentice could tell you, are known for their size and strength. Not these boys. Yet that doesn't mean they don't have skills. And courage - which they will need every ounce of to do battle at sea against the other bands, the Wolves and the Sharks, in the ultimate race. The icy waters make for a treacherous playing field . . . especially when not everyone thinks of it as playing.
John Flanagan, author of the international phenomenon Ranger's Apprentice, creates a new cast of characters to populate his world of Skandians and Araluens, a world millions of young readers around the world have come to know and admire. Full of seafaring adventures and epic battles, Book 1 of The Brotherband Chronicles is sure to thrill readers of Ranger's Apprentice while enticing a whole new generation just now discovering the books.

Brotherband Chronicles: Book 1
Flanagan is superb. The book is fantastic. Fans new and old will love this book. Keating narrates and as always delivers an excellent performance. Couldn't be happier.
As good as the first Rangers Apprentice book
Those who are fans of the audio books won't be disappointed. You'll start the book and you wont want to stop. John Flanagan does a superb job of drawing you into these new characters. John Keating continues to make each character real and personable. An excellent story to sit down and listen to with your family.
Outcasts; Brotherband bk 1
I discovered Rangers Apprentice series by an accidental online ordering. I am glad I did. The books are excellent! I was very happy in one aspect that all the books are published in all formats. I didn't have to wait. Now I have read and listened to the BROTHERBAND BOOK 1; The Outcasts. This book is excellent. John Keating narrates excellently. The characters stand separate on their own merit. You needn't have read the previous series to understand what is going on. Now I have to wait for the next book. Good thing that one is coming out in a couple of months. I can hardly wait.
