Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bracing for a final clash with the evil warlord Morgarath, the Rangers rally the kingdom's allies, and Will is chosen, along with his friend Horace, as special envoys to nearby Celtica. But the simple mission soon takes an unsettling turn — the Celticans have disappeared, their town abandoned. The scheming hand of Morgarath, it seems, has been far from idle. He has found a way to bring his legions over the once impassible eastern mountains and is planning to ambush the king’s army in a rout. Now with help many miles away, Will and Horace are the only ones standing in the way of the dark lord’s plans.They have shown great skill and courage in their training, but how will they fare in the face of true evil?

With bigger battles and higher stakes, John Flanagan's epic adventure charges ahead with this rousing follow-up to The Ruins of Gorlan.

Review:

"This is an enticing new series that will capture the imagination of both boys and girls." Children's Literature

Review:

"Politics and geography play noticeably larger roles in this book, resulting in a deeper and richer story....[A] surprise twist will keep readers on pins and needles waiting for the next book." VOYA

Review:

"Flanagan creates a well-realized picture of life on the trail and its hardships." School Library Journal

Review:

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

Review:

"[W]ill entice fantasy readers who are drawn by the lure of high adventure carried out by believable, down-to-earth heroes." Booklist

Synopsis:

The story that brings the Ranger's Apprentice arc full-circle!

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.

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 . . .

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

 “The last few years have seen the publication of many fantasies, but few have the appeal of this original story.” —Booklist, starred review, on The Ruins of Gorlan

 

“Fans of the series will eagerly devour this one and wait impatiently for the next . . . A sure bet for fantasy fans.” —School Library Journal

 

“Flanagan's deft character portrayals and well-paced story will engage readers, and the ending will leave them clamoring for the next volume.” —Booklist, on The Icebound Land

I thought the first was amazing! The second: Twice as good. I literally read two hours a day in the summer when schools out. It is a book you will never want to put down. I was up till midnight reading it.

This book is for fantasy lovers, due to the created creatures, medival period, and no modern technology.

If you read the first, and you thought it was just good, Grab the second because you will read it over and over again throughout the years.
