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.
- The story starts off slow. Besides a giant storm that throws them off course, not a lot happens.
- If I wasn't so attached to the characters and this world, the story would have been boring, but I enjoyed it because I love everything Flanagan writes. The ending was really good and full of action and peril.
- I enjoyed meeting a new civilization and culture, and I liked how the Herons interacted with the people.
- The ending is a sad and somber one. My heart ached for Stig.
- It is hard to explain my feelings about this book without spoilers.
