Publisher's Summary

When the Heron brotherband become the Skandian duty ship to the Kingdom of Araluen, they're excited at the challenges ahead.

Hal, Stig, Thorn, and the Herons eagerly set off for the trip - with an unexpected new crew member aboard. But an enemy from their past returns, causing the Herons to be thrown into a dangerous quest to free captured Araluens from the slave market in Socorro. Even with the help of an Araluen Ranger, the task may be too much.

Entertaining adventures

Really enjoyed this fourth book of adventures for the Heron brother and. It's a really good, light-hearted and entertaining story, most probably written for teenagers but thoroughly enjoyed by me where my teenage years are dim and distant. There's still a Peter Pan alive in all of us I guess and this series is keeping mine alive and engaged.

This reader is hard to bear

What I dislike about Jon Keating’s reading ... par tic u lar lee .. because he talks down to the listener. But that’s not all. He pauses in the wrong places in sentences .. he mispronounces many words .. at times he tends to become sing songey .. he seems to gallop at times .. and did I say his pronunciations leave a lot to be desired. It jars when he says ‘booie’ for the word “ buoy”(boy). I wonder how he would pronounce ‘buoyancy’? Come to think of it, I would not like to hear it!

An amazing reading of an amazing book

The only thing I don’t like is that a lot of the pronunciations are different from the first 3 but otherwise perfect

Good story, decent performance.

it's a good story, and the narrator does okay. I just grate a little at the pronunciation and emphasis sometimes... and the repertoire of voices is a bit thin.
