It's a long haul before the real action in THE INVADERS, but readers won't be bored. These boys are fun to be around, whether it's training hard on the beach with Thorn's curious methods or watching Hal invent in his shop.

After all the training in The Outcasts, now the Brotherband is officially on the move, ready for adventure ... and pirates. But wait -- a storm hits, and they're stuck in camp. For more than 100 pages.

Then the alliances form as everyone gets ready for battle against the pirates. Finally, there's a strong girl character, Lydia, in the mix. (She got a great introduction but could still use a bit more character development. Maybe in Book 3?) The climactic battle is worth the training, planning, and waiting. And Hal's big invention doesn't disappoint. It's going to be hard to wait for the Heron's next adventure.
