Audience: 5th Grade - 8th Grade
Fans of the Ranger's Apprentice series will love this new series by the same author. From the time Hal is young, he is known as an outsider since his father, a warrior, was killed on a mission, and his mother was born in another region. When the time for Brotherband training arrives, the time when young men are trained to become warriors, Hal and a band of other misfits form a team. Not the most powerful or the most popular boys, they draw on their ingenuity to compete in a series of tests of strength, teamwork and agility for a chance to emerge as a winning team. While this book has a slow start with lengthy descriptions of the making and sailing of a boat, the action heats up when the boys enter Brotherband training and continues to a finish that will have readers eager to find out what happens next.
