The next generation of Ranger’s Apprentice is here.

Many years ago, Will joined the mysterious Rangers who protect the Kingdom of Araluen. Under Halt’s guidance, Will grew into a legend. Now it is time for him to train his own apprentice.

The candidate is the last person Will would ever have expected. His new apprentice is of royal blood – a dangerous secret to be kept – as well as rebellious, unwilling and definitely not used to hard work.

The task seems impossible, but Will cannot refuse. And when a routine mission uncovers a shocking web of crime, Will’s new apprentice might come in handy – and even save his life.

FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF RANGER’S APPRENTICE AND BROTHERBAND

Reviews

Flanagan's deft world -building and characterisation draw you in, and his ability to write realistic action scenes and create nail- biting suspense keep you hooked.

Aleesah Darlison, Sun Herald

A rollicking read.

Literacy Learning

The author’s trademark writing style serves up action, suspense and light humour, all woven into a marvellous medieval adventure, combined with warm characterisation and colourful, believeable settings. The most beguiling but uplifting characteristics of the Ranger’s Apprentice series are the ongoing warm friendships and loyalties that exist between the leading characters, and the fact that good resoundingly triumphs over evil. Recommended – for the series fans, highly recommended!

Russ Merrin, Magpies

With constantly changing scenery, twists and turns at every corner of the storyline and shocking revelations, this book is 473 pages of unadulterated (pure) writing genius.

Bailey Dawson, Year 12, Gold Coast Bulletin
