In the Kingdom of Araluen, Will is about to become a Ranger’s apprentice. Horace is about to become an apprentice warrior. Together Will and Horace will find themselves undertaking battles against formidable foes, swordplay, nailbiting escapes and heroic journeys.

In the country of Skandia, far to the north, Hal is about to join a brotherband and he must step up to the challenge. He must endure three months of gruelling training in seamanship, weapons and battle tactics – and that’s just the beginning of an extraordinary adventure to regain his brotherband’s honour and retrieve Skandia’s most precious artefact.

From the archery and knife skills of a Ranger to the sailing skills of a brotherband, from the green forests of Araluen to the icy seas of Skandia, from defending against invaders to battling treacherous pirates, John Flanagan’s epic adventure series Ranger’s Apprentice and Brotherband will leave you breathless.
