Although, now that I think about it, that was one thing I didn't like. There was this random character Lotte, who seemed to just be put in for a distracting romantic interest for Hal. She was just there, and Hal didn't even think about her the same way that Will did Alyss. Perhaps she'll have a bigger role in later books, instead of a Mary Sue-esque pretty girl? I SO saw the whole conflict with Zavac coming; it was hard not to, but that's how John Flanagan intended it.
Because the book was in omniscient pov, the reader sees Zavac's murder of the traders and how he intends to steal the Andomal so brilliantly named 'thing'. But when the Herons were slated to guard the Andomal, I was like 'OH NO' because, obviously, Zavac was going to make a reappearance and try to steal it.

A Few SAiling TermS explAined ecause this book involves sailing ships, I thought it might be useful to explain a few of the nautical terms that are to be found in the story. Be reassured that I havent gone overboard to keep up the nautical allusion with technical details in the book, and even if youre not familiar with sailing, Im sure youll understand whats going on.
But a certain amount of sailing terminology is necessary for the story to feel realistic. So, here we go, in no particular order. Bow: The front of the ship, also called the prow. Stern: The rear of the ship. Port and starboard: The left and right sides of the ship, as youre facing the bow. In fact, Im probably incorrect in using the term port.
The early term for port was larboard, but I thought wed all get confused if I used that. The steering oar was always placed on the right-hand side of the ship. Consequently, when a ship came into port it would moor with the left side against the jetty, to avoid damage to the steering oar.
One theory says the word derived from the ships being in port left side to the jetty. I suspect, however, that it might have come from the fact that the entry port, by which crew and passengers boarded, was also always on the left side. How do you remember which side is which? Port and left both have four letters.
Forward: Towards the bow. Aft: Towards the stern. Fore and aft rig: A sail plan where the sail is in line with the hull of the ship.
Hull: The body of the ship. Keel: The spine of the ship. Steering oar: The blade used to control the ships direction, mounted on the starboard side of the ship, at the stern.
Tiller: The handle for the steering oar. Beam: The side of the ship. If the wind is abeam, it is coming from the side, at a right angle to the ships keel. Yardarm or yard: A spar wooden pole that is hoisted up the mast, carrying the sail. Masthead: The top of the mast. Bulwark: The part of the ships side above the deck. Gunwale: The upper part of the ships rail. Belaying pins: Wooden pins used to fasten rope. Telltale: A pennant that indicates the winds direction.
Tacking: To tack is to change direction from one side to the other, passing through the eye of the wind.
If the wind is from the north and you want to sail north-east, you would perform one tack so that you were heading north-east, and you could continue to sail on that tack for as long as you needed to. However, if the wind is from the north and you want to sail due north, you would have to do so in a series of short tacks, going back and forth on a zigzag course, crossing through the wind each time, and slowly making ground to the north.
This is a process known as beating into the wind. Wearing: When a ship tacks, it turns into the wind to change direction. When it wears, it turns away from the wind, travelling in a much larger arc, with the wind in the sail, driving the ship around throughout the manoeuvre. This was a safer way of changing direction for wolfships.
Reach or reaching: When the wind is from the side of the ship, the ship is sailing on a reach, or reaching. Running: When the wind is from the stern, the ship is running. So would you if the wind was strong enough.
Reef: To gather in part of the sail and bundle it against the yardarm to reduce the sail area. This is done in high winds to protect the sail and mast. Trim: To adjust the sail to the most efficient angle. Halyard: A rope used to haul the yard up the mast haul-yard, get it?
The backstay and forestay are heavy ropes running from the top of the mast to the stern and bow its pretty obvious which is which. Sheets and shrouds: A lot of people think these are sails, which is a logical assumption. But in fact, theyre ropes. Shrouds are thick ropes that run from the top of the mast to the side of the ship, supporting the mast. Sheets are the ropes used to control or trim the sail to haul it in and out according to the wind strength and direction.
In an emergency, the order might be given to let fly the sheets!. The sheets would be released, letting the sail loose and bringing the ship to a halt. If you were to let fly the sheets, youd probably fall out of bed. Way: The motion of the ship. If a ship is under way, it is moving. If it is making leeway, the wind is blowing it downwind so it loses ground. Back water: To row a reverse stroke. So, now you know all you need to know about sailing terms, welcome aboard the world of Brotherband!
John Flanagan Copyright John Flanagan CHApTer One Twelve years prior olfwind emerged from the pre-dawn sea mist like a wraith slowly taking physical form. With her sail furled and the yardarm lowered to the deck, and propelled by only four of her oars, the wolfship glided slowly towards the beach. The four rowers wielded their oars carefully, raising them only a few centimetres from the water at the end of each stroke so that the noise of drops splashing back into the sea was kept to a minimum.
They were Eraks most experienced oarsmen and they were used to the task of approaching an enemy coast stealthily. And during raiding season, all coasts were enemy coasts. Such was their skill that the loudest sound was the lap-lap-lap of small ripples along the wooden hull. In the bow, Svengal and two other crew members crouched Copyright John Flanagan The lack of surf might make their approach easier but a little extra noise would have been welcome, Svengal thought.
Plus white water would have made the line of the beach easier to spot in the dimness. Then he saw the beach and held up his hand, fist clenched.
Far astern, at the steering oar, Erak watched his second in command as he revealed five fingers, then four, then three as he measured off the distance to the sand. In oars. Erak spoke the words in a conversational tone, unlike the bellow he usually employed to pass orders. In the centre section of the wolfship, his bosun, Mikkel, relayed the orders.
The four oars lifted out of the water as one, rising quickly to the vertical so that any excess water would fall into the ship and not into the sea, where it would make more noise. A few seconds later, the prow of the ship grated softly against the sand. Erak felt the vibrations of the gentle contact with the shore through the deck beneath his feet. Svengal and his two companions vaulted over the bow, landing cat-like on the wet sand. Two of them moved up the beach, fanning out to scan the country on either side, ready to give warning of any possible ambush.
Svengal took the small beach anchor that another sailor lowered to him. He stepped twenty paces up the beach, strained against the anchor rope to bring it tight and drove the shovel-shaped fluke into the firm sand. Wolfwind, secured by the bow, slewed a little to one side under the pressure of the gentle breeze. Clear left! The two men who had gone onshore called their reports now. There was no need for further stealth. Svengal checked his own area of responsibility, then added his report to theirs.
Clear ahead. On board, Erak nodded with satisfaction. He hadnt expected any sort of armed reception on the beach but it always paid to make sure. That was why he had been such a successful raider over the years and why he had lost so few of his crewmen. All right, he said, lifting his shield from the bulwark and hefting it onto his left arm.
Lets go. He quickly strode the length of the wolfship to the bow, where a boarding ladder had been placed over the side.
Shoving his heavy battleaxe through the leather sling on his belt, he climbed easily over the bulwark and down to the beach.
His crewmen followed, forming up behind him. There was no need for orders. They had all done this before, many times. Svengal joined him. No sign of anyone here, chief, he reported. Erak grunted. Neither should there be. They should all be busy at Alty Bosky. He pronounced the name in his usual way careless of the finer points of Iberian pronunciation.
The town in question was actually Alto Bosque, a relatively unimportant market town some ten kilometres to the south, built on the high, wooded hill from which it derived its name.
The previous day, seven of his crew had taken the skiff and landed there, carrying out a lightning raid on Copyright John Flanagan Alto Bosque had no garrison and a rider from the town had been sent to Santa Sebilla, where a small force of militia was maintained.
Eraks plan was to draw the garrison away to Alto Bosque while he and his men plundered Santa Sebilla unhindered. Santa Sebilla was a small town, too. The Outcasts. Book three finds the end of the epic quest by Hal and the Heron Brotherband to retrieve the lost treasure of the.
