I've read this book physically and decided to listen to it now, the narrator could've been Hal's age and then set a deeper tone for the older characters rather than the other way around but overall not a bad listen, definently recommend especially if you like the rangers series.
Hal and his Heron Brotherband are trainee Skandian warriors, together they learn to work as a team to win the right to be the honour guard for the Andomal, a precious treasure that is venerated by the Skandians. It is an excellent adventure story for young readers. John Keating gives a pretty good performance of the book. John Flanagan is the author of the highly popular series Ranger's Apprentice. The Brotherband Chronicles is the follow on series focusing mostly on Skandians and not Araluen as in Ranger' s Apprentice.
john flanagan maintains a funny and exciting journey in the mediaval world full of rangers and misting creatures.
What made the experience of listening to The Outcasts the most enjoyable?
This story is a feel good adventure for the underdog. You really come to like the characters and although ultimately predictable, it's a great tale.
What did you like best about this story?
As a mum, I liked the lessons the boys learn along the way and the way they solve each problem that arises. I also liked the frequent humor that peppers the story.
What about John Keating’s performance did you like?
While some of the accents are a bit questionable, John maintains the characters consistently. He has an easy listening voice and takes you into the story so you forget it is being read to you.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Corny as it may be, it was the moment Hal makes his mum proud!
Any additional comments?
If you liked " the Ranger's Apprentice" or "How to train your Dragon" you will also like this book.

John Flanagan once again gives us another thrilling story, however the narrative can be distracting at times. John Keating does a good job giving each character their individuality however he reads with so much attention to punctuation that it becomes distracting and at times stops were there is no punctuation. Because of this the story is lost a little.
