The Ghostfaces by John Flanagan is the sixth book in the Brotherband Chronicles. In this latest installment, the band is blown severely off course by a huge storm and ends up in a new land. From the cover, it shouldn’t be hard to deduce that this new land is much like America, and the peoples in it are like our Native Americans. The group needs to survive in this new situation, and figure out a way home. Or, will they decide that this new land would be a good place for a new beginning?
I’ve enjoyed the growth of the individuals in this series as we’ve gone along. The first books were my favorite, as the team coalesced and learned to work together. The only thing very different about this new story is that they learn about grief. I won’t spoil anything for you, but I will tell you that this is standard fare for Flanagan. Lots of battles, bickering, and witty repartee make the series a good one to put in the hands of adventure fans.
