The Herons take to the high seas to fend off pirates and rescue the heir to an empire in the newest adventure from John Flanagan, author of the worldwide bestselling Ranger's Apprentice!

Includes BONUS content--a brand-new Ranger's Apprentice short story featuring fan-favorites Will and Maddie!

In Hallasholm, Stig is contesting the annual Maktig competition to decide Skandia's greatest warrior. But a late-night knock on the door brings someone Stig never expected to see again, along with a request the Herons are hard-pressed to refuse: a rescue mission of epic proportions.

Across the ocean, the southern city-state of Byzantos is plagued by a crew of pirates who've kidnapped the son of Empress Justina. Slipping out of Hallasholm under the cover of darkness, the brotherband sets sail to recover the boy from his kidnappers, heading south to the island of Santorillos where a near-impenetrable fortress stands atop a cliff, surrounded by a lagoon--a caldera--formed by the crater of a volcano.

In this explosive seventh book in the action-packed Brotherband Chronicles, the Herons battle pirates amid stormy seas as the fate of an empire rests on their shoulders.

John Flanagan’s The Caldera - Brotherband Chronicles - Book 7 was an excellent book. My 21st Flanagan book. This book is highly recommended by Doctor-at-Bass. Taylor A.

I always love tagging along with the Herons on their latest adventures, but I do find them growing slightly repetitive. I mean, they're still amazing, but the pattern isn't very altered. It's usually a sneak in, rescue random hostage, barely escape, run into additional difficulty, somehow escape again, and return home to great acclaim. However, the adventures are wonderfully fun to read, and Flanagan writes with a brief, engaging style. Ulf and Wulf are enough by themselves to make the books enjoyable. Yes, I liked it, but I could have liked it more with an altered plot.
