Ranger's Apprentice The Royal Ranger 4: The Missing Prince




The New York Times bestselling series continues with another nailbiting mission for Will Treaty and his fearless young apprentice.

King Philippe of Gallica appeals to King Duncan for help. His son is being held hostage by a power-hungry baron, and Philippe wants Duncan to send a Ranger to rescue the boy.

Will and Maddie are perfect for the task. Travelling as father and daughter to allay suspicion, they will pose as entertainers to infiltrate the Chateau des Falaises, where the prince is being held.

But travelling through Gallica has its own risks: armed bandits, wild weather and even a mysterious follower all have to be faced and overcome. Will they ever find the prince?

And if they do, how will they rescue him from the evil Baron Lassigny?

Praise for Ranger's Apprentice The Royal Ranger 4: The Missing Prince

John Flanagan is a great storyteller. He presents only as many clues as are needed at each particular junction. He keeps us guessing — can they survive this time?

Jennifer Mors, Reading Time

Author John Flanagan is a master world-builder. Across his many series - Royal Ranger, The Brotherband Chronicles, and The Rangers Apprentice - he has developed an intricate landscape, seemingly set in medieval times, but completely imagined . . . Though the author draws on his interest in history and knowledge of warfare to build the world where this story occurs, it is not a slow stolid history lesson. Rather the history helps us to understand the characters’ motivations and missions, and it doesn’t get in the way of the grand adventure and nail-biting tension.
