Passing two fiendishly difficult tests is just the beginning . . . All Caspan, Roland, Sara, Lachlan and Kilt need to do to become treasure hunters is undertake two final trials riddled with deadly traps and impossible puzzles.
It's vital that they pass, because the Brotherhood needs them for an urgent mission - one that could save their kingdom. The five friends must ride their Wardens to the north, into the highlands.
They must locate the powerful ancient weapon hidden there. And they must bring it back to the King.
But the burial mound they seek is far from abandoned. It's inside a giant camp crowded with enemy warriors.
How can they ever succeed?
This is the second in a fantastic series. We had the pleasure of including Book 1 earlier this year and we thought that this was a series that was worth following.
Caspan and his team pass their final tests to become active Brotherhood members and are immediately despatched on a dangerous mission.
They are to travel into the highlands to locate and retrieve the kingdoms most powerful ancient weapon. But first they must overcome the many obstacles in their way and, with their enemies joining forces at their borders, the survival of their kingdom could depend on the success of their mission.
Full of action and suspense that again leaves us awaiting the next instalment, this series is best suited to readers between 10-14 years.
