Publisher Comments:

For years, the Kingdom of Araluen has prospered, with the evil lord Morgarath safely behind the impassable mountains. For years, its people have felt secure. but the scheming hand of the dark lord has not been idle....on a special mission for the rangers, will and his friend Horace, an apprentice knight, travel to a neighboring village and discover the unsettling truth: All the villagers have either been slain or captured. but why? Could it be that Morgarath has finally devised a plan to bring his legions over the supposedly insurmountable pass? if so, the kings army is in imminent danger of being crushed in a fierce ambush. And will and Horace are the only ones who can save them.

Review:

"This is an enticing new series that will capture the imagination of both boys and girls in the middle school range who are looking for fantasy selections." Children's Literature

Review:

"[A] surprise twist will keep readers on pins and needles waiting for the next book." VOYA

Review:

"[A] winning formula that should prove out to a long, steady run for this above average series." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

In this rousing sequel to The Ruins of Gorlan, the Rangers brace for a final clash with the evil Morgarath, and choose Will, along with his friend Horace, as special envoys to Celtica. But the simple mission soon takes an unsettling turn.

Synopsis:

From John Flanagan, author of the worldwide bestselling Ranger's Apprentice — an all-new adventure featuring the Brotherband crew and one of our favorite Rangers!

 

Hal, his Brotherband crew, and the Ranger Gilan have freed the twelve Araluens sold into slavery. Returning to Araluen, Gilan is given a new mission by King Duncan: protect his daughters life. Princess Cassandra has survived one attempt on her life already, and now whispers of a second attempt have reached the kingdom. A deadly sect known as the Scorpion Cult is thought to be behind the assassination threat.

Not waiting to see if the knife will strike true, the Brotherband again team up with Gilan to track down the would-be killers.

In this fifth book in the Brotherband Chronicles, old friends reemerge to take on new enemies as the worlds of Rangers Apprentice and Brotherband join forces in battle!

Synopsis:

Ranger's Apprentice, the international sensation, comes to a close in this twelfth installment.

For fans of Tolkien, Redwall, Game of Thrones, and T.H. White, RANGER'S APPRENTICE delivers fantasy-adventure thrills with real-world historical details.

John Flanagan returns for one final bow to the series that has conquered millions of readers worldwide with this pulse-pounding adventure that brings one era to a close, and ushers in the next 

Will Treaty has come a long way from the small boy with dreams of knighthood. Life had other plans for him, and as an apprentice Ranger under Halt, he grew into a legend—the finest Ranger the kingdom has ever known. Yet Will is facing a tragic battle that has left him grim and alone. To add to his problems, the time has come to take on an apprentice of his own, and its the last person he ever would have expected. Fighting his personal demons, Will has to win the trust and respect of his difficult new companion—a task that at times seems almost impossible.

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 where 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.

I have read both books 1 & 2 to my school class. We can't get enough of it! We really would like to see books 3 & 4 come out soon! All my students like this series even better than Harry Potter. There is so much action and imagination and we like the setting of the book and the time period it takes place in. We especially like Will and his character! This is book is a must to read!!
