Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The international bestselling series with over 5 million copies sold in the U.S. alone!

Still far from home after escaping slavery in the icebound land of Skandia, young Will and Evanlyn's plans to return to Araluen are spoiled when Evanlyn is taken captive. Though still weak, Will employs his Ranger training to locate his friend but soon finds himself fatally outnumbered. Will is certain death is close at hand, until Halt and Horace make a daring last-minute rescue. But their reunion is cut short by the horrifying discovery that Skandia's borders have been breached by the Temujai army - and Araluen is next in their sights. Only an unlikely union can save the two kingdoms, but can it hold long enough to vanquish a ruthless new enemy?

Perfect for fans of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, T.H. White’s The Sword in the Stone, Christopher Paolini’s Eragon series, and George R. R. Martin’s Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice and Fire series.

Synopsis:

The battles and drama are nonstop in this latest installment of Flanagan's epic fantasy. Skandia's borders have been breached, and Araluen is next. If the two kingdoms are to be saved, an unlikely union must be made.

Synopsis:

A new series from bestselling author John Flanagan!

Skandians, as any fan of Ranger's Apprentice can tell you, are known for their physical strength. Though Hal, Stig, and the other outcasts may be lacking in that area, they more than make up for it with their intellect and courage--which they'll need every ounce of if they're to compete in the ultimate competition. From tests of strategy to races on treacherous seas, these Skandians will be pitted against some of their country's most promising young warriors. And for some it's more than just a game. It's war.
