“Well, we all know the theory that the world is a big dish on the back of a giant turtle.
When the Brotherband crew are caught in a massive storm at sea, they’re blown far off course – so far that they wash up on the shores of a land to the west that Hal can’t recognize from any of his maps. Eerily the locals are nowhere in sight, yet the Herons have a creeping feeling they are being watched.
Suddenly the silence is broken when a massive, marauding bear appears, advancing on two children. The crew springs into action and rescues the children from the bear’s clutches, which earns them the gratitude and friendship of the local Mawagansett tribe, who finally reveal themselves. But the peace is short-lived. The Ghostfaces, a ruthless, warlike tribe who shave their heads and paint their faces white, are on the warpath once more. It’s been ten years since they raided the Mawagansett village, but they’re coming back to pillage and reap destruction. As the enemy approaches, the Herons gear up to help their new friends repel an invasion.
In this sixth book in the action-packed Brotherband Chronicles, the Herons find themselves in unfamiliar lands and prepare for battle with a ruthless, unknown enemy.
I wasn’t going to read this book at first. Because I was (and am) tired of John Flanagan. He just writes and writes and writes and expects us to read,read,read. Though I will admit he does get better and better…

“How afraid you are – and you’ll be frightened – and frightening how they look with their skulls and their black-rimmed eyes, stand. Attack. Always go forward. Scream at them makes your rage, but fall especially. They never expect. They expect you begin to scream with fear and flees. Do not do that. Go ahead. Always ahead. – Lydia “
