As a novel to recommend for anyone looking for a purely entertaining read it's very worthwhile.

John Flanagan, author of the brilliant Rangers Apprentice series see The Ruins of Gorlan one which both I, my mother and the invaders brotherband sister - the readers in our house - love continues the adventures of his young Skandian sailors as they set out to retrieve an artefact lost on their watch and hence their honour.

John Flanagan writes in a manner that is particularly appealing to me personally. I think it has the invaders brotherband to do with the mixture of classier words and terms and his easy-going style: I suspect if I were to compare this to other average YA novels however that the lexicon would prove more advanced, that the language would prove more sophisticated in its elegant construction than those.

In fact the wonder of this novel is that I know many younger children who can read these novels and still get plenty out of them. It's remarkable to think that the language in this is perhaps far more advanced than The Hunger Games.

Likely only content at this point would separate a ten year old from reading The Hunger Games over this for its simplicity. While heading back they find The invaders brotherband, who tells them about the the invaders brotherband attack.

Hal thinks it may be Zavac so he continues back to Shelter Bay. Wolfwind, led by the Skandian Svengal, finds them but ends up helping them.

The invaders brotherband climactic the invaders brotherband includes many pirates dying via swordplay, arrows, fire, and splinters from exploding wood. Most gore is omitted, except when a Heron shipmate gets an arrow in his side and it has to be removed and bandaged.

There's one fist fight that ends quickly. Sex Some mild jealousy between boys competing for Lydia's attention. Language A misbehaving Heron shipmate is called an "ass" a few times. The other insults are pretty funny, invoking the names of Skandian gods, some of the best being "by Orlog's crossed eyes" and "Gorlog's breath.
