Scorpion Mountain

21456821Goodreads Synopsis:    Hal, his Brotherband crew, and the Ranger Gilan have freed the twelve Araluens sold into slavery. Returning to Araluen, Gilan is given a new mission by King Duncan: protect his daughter’s life. Princess Cassandra has survived one attempt on her life already, and now whispers of a second attempt have reached the kingdom. A deadly sect known as the Scorpion Cult is thought to be behind the assassination threat.

Not waiting to see if the knife will strike true, the Brotherband again team up with Gilan to track down the would-be killers.

In this fifth book in the Brotherband Chronicles, old friends reemerge to take on new enemies as the worlds of Ranger’s Apprentice and Brotherband join forces in battle!

My Thoughts:

-    This was a really fun adventure!

-    I loved that Gilan got to travel with the brotherband again. I loved seeing Evanlyn and King Duncan again. I hope the Heron's visit Araluen again.

-    Hal and Stig are very similar to Will and Horace. I still love the characters, but it would have been nice to have more variety.

-    It was fun to see the Heron's in an environment they weren't accustomed to. It brought new challenges and obstacles.

-    Some of Hal's inventions are a bit of a stretch, so it is a good thing this is fiction.
