The Brotherband series is set in Skandia, and follows the adventures of Hal Mikkelson. In Skandia, there is only one way to become a warrior. Boys are chosen for teams called brotherbands and must endure three months of gruelling training in seamanship, weapons and battle tactics. It's brotherband against brotherband, fighting it out in a series of challenges. There can be only one winner.
When Hal Mikkelson finds himself the unwilling leader of a brotherband made up of outcasts, he must step up to the challenge. The Heron brotherband might not have the strength and numbers of the other two teams, the Wolves and the Sharks, but with inventiveness, ingenuity and courage on their side, they might just surprise everyone.

 

The Rangers Apprentice series is set in the mythical land of Araluen and follows the adventures of Will, a small and lively 15 year old boy living in medieval Castle Redmont.

After being rejected for training as a warrior-knight, Will is apprenticed instead to the Ranger Corps – a mysterious group who act as the King’s eyes and ears throughout Araluen and beyond its shores.

As an Apprentice Ranger, Will is trained to be an expert archer and knife thrower, as well as learning the skills of silent, unseen movement, tracking and concealment. Gradually, a bond develops between the garrulous, inquisitive Will and his grim-faced mentor, Halt – renowned as one of the greatest of all Rangers.

Based on a collection of short stories originally written to encourage the author’s son to enjoy reading, the series is alive with action – battles, boar hunts, inhuman enemies and loyal friends. It’s exciting and fast moving. Humorous at times, spine chilling at others.

It always involves the reader, and best of all, the characters ring true and quickly establish themselves in the reader’s imagination.

Endorsed by Children’s Book authorities in Australia, and having appeared on the New York Times Bestseller list, the series has now been sold in 14 international markets. Avid readers eagerly await the next book in the series. Book 11 in the series, The Lost Stories, will be published in late 2011

The eight books in the series so far are

  1. The Ruins of Gorlan

  2. The Burning Bridge

  3. The Ice Bound Land

  4. Oakleaf Bearers, also known as Battle for Skandia

Follow the first two years of Will’s life as a Ranger, from his initial recruitment as an Apprentice Ranger, through his pivotal roles in battles with the renegade Lord Morgarath, the Kalkara Assassins, the Skandian Seawolves and the fierce Temujai riders from the Eastern Steppes.

  5.   The Sorcerer in the North
  6.   The Siege of Macindaw

Set a few years later, this two book set describes Will’s first assignment as a fully fledged Ranger. Will is sent to a Northern fief to investigate rumours of sorcery, where he uncovers a planned attack by the fierce Scotti warriors from Picta. Several old friends from previous books assist him as he attempts to unmask a traitor and foil the Scotti plans.

7. Erak's Ransom

Book 7 is actually out of chronological order. Set after Book 4 and a few months before Book 5. Set in the desert land of Arrida, where Erak, Oberjarl of the Skandians, is being held prisoner. Will, Halt, Horace, Gilan and Evanlyn set out on a rescue mission. It’s full of action and adventure: fights, pitched battles, a horse race, a sandstorm in the desert. Two interesting new characters are introduced.

8 The Kings of Clonmel

Will is at the annual Ranger Gathering but Halt is investigating mysterious happenings in the west. When he does finally return, it's with bad news. Hibernia is in turmoil. A religious cult calling themselves the Outsiders are sowing confusion and sedition, and five of the six Hibernian kingdoms have been undermined. Now the sixth, Clonmel, is in danger. Halt, Will and Horace set out to restore order. Can the secrets of Halt's past help them in their mission?

Book 8 will forms a two-volume adventure with Book 9. It picks up the story after Book 6, The Siege of Macindaw. Titles for the two books are The Kings of Clonmel and Halt’s Peril. Book 8 The Kings of Clonmel was released in Australia in November, 2008. Book 9 Halt’s Peril was published in late 2009.

9 Halt's Peril

Halt, Horace and Will follow Tennyson’s trail to Picta. They’re determined to stop the Outsider prophet and his remaining followers before the outlaws make their way across the border into Araluen. Will has defeated one of Tennyson’s Genovesan assassins in Clonmel – but there are two left alive. Are the extraordinary archery skills of Will and Halt enough to save them during a duel with the assassins . . . or is Will’s mentor facing his last battle?

10 The Emperor of Nihon-Ja

Horace is missing. Months have passed since he was sent on a military mission to the court of the Emperor of Nihon-Ja but has failed to return. Evanlyn is worried, and in company with Will and Alyss, she sets out to discover what has become of their old friend.

They find that Horace has become embroiled in Nihon-Jan politics. The arrogant Senji Sect has rebelled against the rightful Emperor and Horace has chosen to stay and lend support to the deposed ruler. Now he and Will must turn farm and forest workers into a fighting force that can face the highly trained Senji warriors, while Alyss and Evanlyn must overcome their long-standing rivalry to seek aid from a mysterious group of mountain dwellers.

11 The Lost Stories

Inspired by questions and letters his loyal readers have sent over the years, John Flanagan offers a gift in response: a collection of "lost" tales that fill in the gaps between Ranger's Apprentice novels. For the first time, readers can learn the truth behind how Will came to be orphaned and what his real relationship to Halt is, or watch Alyss in action as the young Araluen diplomat disguises herself and becomes the perfect spy.
