Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Still far from their homeland after escaping slavery in the icebound land of Skandia, Will and Evanlyn's plans to return to Araluen are spoiled when Evanlyn is taken captive by a Temujai warrior. Though still weakened by the warmweed's toxic effects, Will employs his Ranger training to locate his friend, but an enemy scouting party has him fatally outnumbered. Will is certain death is close at hand, until Halt and Horace make a daring, last-minute rescue. The reunion is cut short, however, when Halt makes a horrifying discovery: Skandia's borders have been breached by the entire Temujai army. And Araluen is next in their sights. If two kingdoms are to be saved, an unlikely union must be made. Will it hold long enough to vanquish a ruthless new enemy? Or will past tensions spell doom for all?

The battles and drama are nonstop in Book Four of this hugely popular epic.

Review:

"Flanagan expertly juggles the overall plot line...with a logically constructed campaign that culminates in a hard, suspenseful battle....[Flanagan] shows a knack for crafting adolescent warriors and mentors that never go stale, however long the haul may be." Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)

Review:

"Fans of the Ranger's Apprentice series will again dive right into this fourth adventure....The resolution ties up many loose ends satisfactorily, although there is room for more books in this series." VOYA

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.

About the Author

John Flanagan grew up in Sydney, Australia hoping to be a writer. It wasn’t until he wrote a highly uncomplimentary poem about a senior executive at the agency he worked, however, that his talent was revealed. It turned out one of the company directors agreed with John’s assessment of the executive, and happily agreed to train John in copywriting.

After writing advertising copy for the next two decades, John teamed with an old friend to develop a television sitcom, Hey Dad!, which went on to air for eight years.

John began writing Ranger’s Apprentice for his son, Michael, ten years ago, and is still hard at work on the series. He currently lives in the suburb of Manly, Australia, with his wife. In addition to their son, they have two grown daughters and four grandsons.
