The book chronicles the adventures of a boy named Hal and his friends Lydia, Stig, Thorn, Ulf, Wulf, Edvin, Ingvar, Jesper, and Stefan as they chase a rogue slaver across the world in their innovative and unusual boat, the Heron. The Herons hope they will never see him, but they worry about the image the renegade will cause their country. The Brotherbands adventures in Araluen are only beginning, but they will only serve to make the Brotherband that much stronger. Also by John Flanagan.
