Though the main characters don't change much in this eighth Brotherband story, they take readers on a truly exciting and suspenseful adventure. Everyone is doing what they do best. Hal designs the weapons and makes the tough decisions. He comes up with a brazen escape plan in Return of the Temujai. Lydia creeps into enemy territory and throws her deadly darts. Stig and Thorn, completely outnumbered, hold off the enemy with skill and style. And the Heron rides the dangerous rapids.

Temujai are a formidable force and the Skandians need a peace treaty to avoid a war they can't win. So while we don't get to see much change for readers' favorite characters, the stakes for Hal's people are pretty high. This keeps the Brotherband series feeling fresh, even eight books along.
