The book I am writing about is Brotherband – The Outcasts by John Flanagan. This book was very good and very long. The book is about a boy named Hal. His father was a Skandian warrior who died in battle. His mother was a Araluen slave. Then Hal goes to Brotherband training and gets bullied with other outcasts. Now Hal and his Brotherband must prove the can be on top.

I liked that even though his father died and is an outcast, he still acts as a leader. I disliked that the book was long and some parts I didn’t understand.

I would give this book 4.5 stars.
