Publisher's Summary

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

Hal and the brotherband are back home in Hallasholm when a knock on the door brings an unexpected visitor: Stig's long-absent father, Olaf. The Empress of Byzantos' son has been kidnapped by pirates, and palace guard commander Olaf has been held responsible. The only way to redeem himself is to rescue the boy. Olaf needs a ship and a crew, and he has nowhere else to turn.

The pirates' fortress is on an island, where a collapsed volcano has left a caldera of towering cliffs surrounding a deep lagoon. There is only one way up or down - and the pirates have the key. How can the Herons possibly rescue the Empress' son from such an inhospitable place? Culminating in a battle for survival on the seas, The Caldera sees the Herons take on one of their most difficult missions yet!

What a terrible disappointment.

John Flanagan, it is obvious that you did NOT hear this audio presentation of this story. The pronunciations of many of the nautical terms left much to be desired. The variations in presenting some words, even in the same sentence, were more than disappointing. The characterisations were, to sat the least, laughable, only there was nothing funny to them. It is to be hoped that this person did not read any of books 1-6, and hope he doesn’t get to read any more of them. The reader you use for the Ranger’s Apprentice would do a far better job for you and enhance your books as this man doesn’t.
