Brotherband ChroniclesBrotherband Chronicles, Book One

They are outcasts. Hal, Stig, and the others – they are the boys the others want no part of. Skandians, as any reader of Ranger’s Apprentice could tell you, are known for their size and strength. They will need every ounce of courage to do battle at sea against the other bands, the Wolves and the Sharks, in the ultimate race.
