Literature: Brotherband

In Skandia, there is only one way to become a warrior. Boys are chosen for teams called brotherbands and must endure three months of gruelling training in seamanship, weapons and battle tactics. It's brotherband against brotherband, fighting it out in a series of challenges. There can be only one winner.

Hal Mikkelson, son of a Skandian hero and an Araluan slave, is a young boy who finds himself the skirl of a brotherband made out of the outcasts of Skandia. The other brotherbands are far superior in both strength and numbers, but Hal has one thing nobody else does: ingenuity.
