Title: Scorpion Mountain
Series: Brotherband Chronicles
Author: John Flanagan
Rating: of 5 Battle Axes
Genre: SFF
Pages: 465
Format: Kindle











Synopsis: Hal and crew are sent on a mission to stop a band of killers who have sworn an oath to kill Princess Cassandra. Said killers just happen to be living in the middle of the desert. Vikings in the desert. Seriously. My Thoughts: It is getting simply ridiculous just how many things Hal invents on the spot. In this book, it is glasses for the big guy who shoots the mangler. His feelings are hurt and so he wants to leave the Heron and Hal invents glasses so he can see and participate and feel better. Other than that, this was a carbon copy of all the other books. Especially in how the characters react and relate to each other. Flanagan obviously has a system that works for him but I think I'll need a good 6 months between books so as to not overdose on middle grade/ ya'ness of it all. And saying it is a carbon copy also means that the fighting and action are top notch. I do really enjoy the battles, on land and sea. " ( )

John Flanagan is an amazing author and his stories are really cool. This one though wasn't up to it's usual standard. Ranger's Apprentice was exciting and funny and unpredictable. Then the Brotherband Chronicles came out and they started off as being really great as well. Hal is a very interesting character. He reminds me of Hiccup from the How To Train Your Dragon movies. He is an inventor and he's not quite as dedicated to his muscles as his tribesmen are. The first three books were interesting. Book four is where the story faltered and book five really wasn't that good. I suppose it was more realistic, but it wasn't fun to read. There was this huge buildup focusing on the character of Tursgud and you felt the inevitable fight coming closer every page. And then...Tursgud's boat sinks because the Herons put a few holes in it. It was the single most anticlimactic ending I have ever read. Hal and Tursgud were interesting and well developed characters and their rivalry had a lot of potential and it was simply disappointing to have it end as it did, in the confines of less than a page.

Another rollicking adventure with the crew of the Heron. I am really enjoying this series. ( )

From John Flanagan, author of the worldwide bestselling Ranger's Apprentice -- an all-new adventure featuring the Brotherband crew and one of our favorite Rangers!

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!

More of the same but good character development and a nice distraction. Fun. If you liked the other Brotherband Chronicles and the Ranger's Apprentice series, you'll enjoy this one. ( )
