It wasn't perfect and one major thing bugged me through the whole book, but I still really, really, really loved it, and I think I'm going to love it more when the sequel comes out (if the sequel lives up to the set up of this book).

After the disappointment of the last two Brotherband books, I was really hoping this book wouldn't continue the trend. I'm happy to say it didn't, at least for me.

The plot was really unique and, while similar to other Ranger's Apprentice books, was still different

A group of insurgents in the kingdom of Araluen are stirring up trouble for Princess Cassandra as they seek to overturn the change in law made by her father, King Duncan, prior to her birth restricting ascendants to male heirs. Harald and Chief Ranger Gilan take half of the Castle's guard north to quell the disturbance, when they find themselves substantially overmatched. Meanwhile, Cassandra's daughter Maddie, who is secretly training to become a Ranger, has completed her third year trial and i ...more
As a dedicated Ranger Apprentice fan I couldn’t help approach this book with a bit of hesitation. I was comfortable with how the series had ended, well mostly, and did not know what to think of the idea of a new series with its central focus on Maddie as a ranger and princess. (Especially seeing as I’ve always had the stance that Rangers and royalty shouldn’t mix.) But it was as if John Flanagan knew that and gave his all to win me over from the very beginning.

While not a perfect book, The Red

Maddie is in her 4th year as a Ranger's apprentice, but she is not a typical apprentice. She is the crown princess and her apprenticeship needs to be kept a secret.
At the same time, a dangerous group called the "Red Fox Clan" are trying to gain support and membership for their cause - which is to remove the law enabling females to succeed to the throne, thereby blocking Maddie and her mother from ruling Araluen.

This wasn't my favourite from this series / spin off series. I think as most of the

Book 2 of the royal ranger is not interesting as the other books written by JF. It's predictable except the last part that is to be continued...

3/4 of the book is boring and then the last quarter of the book becomes exciting and I'm hoping it is going somewhere but all it says is to be continued...

So can I continue in the next issue??? Just disappointed with this one...

Will and Gilan against halt is just too hilarious.
I'm glad Maddie learned her lessons. Yay for the skandians visiting. I did miss Lydia. The cliffhanger made me think. I am wondering what happened to will and halt. Bumper's responses are cute. The tunnels are scary. The inverted flag was new to me. Sensei. Now I want learn how to use a practice katana.

In het dertiende deel van de avonturen van De Grijze Jager heeft Maddie, oftewel prinses Madelyn, haar derde jaar als leerling Grijze Jager afgerond en gaat ze tussendoor eerst naar huis om tijd door te brengen met haar familie. Het lijkt een lange en saaie tijd te worden, maar gelukkig gaat het leven van bepaalde vijanden ook door. Maddie gaat op speurtocht naar gangenstelsels in het kasteel en haar vader Arnaut en Grijze Jager commandant Gilan gaan op weg om De Clan van de Rode Vos te verjagen ...more

Second in The Royal Ranger spin-off series and part of the overall Ranger's Apprentice universe for middle-grade readers revolving around Princess Maddie who chose to become a ranger.

My Take
I do adore Flanagan's Ranger Apprentice series (all his series, really). His characters are great role models for kids AND the adults in the stories treat the kids as intelligent people, not like little "kiddies".

In his Royal Ranger spin-off, I love that Maddie provides the girls with a role model to look up

Dit vind ik nou flauw. In het grootste deel van het boek meandert John Flanagan om de actie heen en gebeurt er niet zo veel. Maar zodra het daadwerkelijk een beetje spannend begint te worden, eindigt het boek! Heel frustrerend... ;)

This one was slower and less interesting than the other books in the series, and the plot was too predictable, which was why I found the first 3/4 of it too boring. This book is more about setting up the next book, like how The Sorcerer in the North sets the scene for The Siege of Macindaw.

John Flanagan měl tuto sérii rozhodně ukončit a nenavazovat dalšími příběhy. Zkrátka už to není ono, to kouzlo hraničářského sboru a skvělých dobrodružství vyprchalo lusknutím prstů. Místo toho tu máme princeznu Maddie a její matku, princeznu regentku, která se chová asi tak na dvanáct. Plno nesrovnalostí a dějových nelogičností. Jediný světlý bod přišel s Volavkami, a to taky jenom na chvíli.

Ano, něco z původního Flanagana to mělo, ale byl to bohužel jen závan toho, co bylo dřív. A s prom

Another really good book in the Ranger's Apprentice series. In this book, Araluen is finally in peril. It has all the same elements of the previous books, and is very well done. It portrays Maddy very well as a talented, but still learning ranger apprentice who still makes mistakes. The only downsides are that Will isn't in the book much, and the book ends rather abruptly with "to be continued". It would have been better to release the entire story as one book. But never-the-less, it is an excel ...more

I keep thinking the Ranger's Apprentice series will fade, and then a glorious book like this gets published. Maddie is a phenomenal character. She's strong without being cliche and a ranger to the core. I'm loving the evolution of her character from The Royal Ranger to this. From pampered princess to a hard-working warrior, she's grown up.

Also Halt's story about the nanny goat made this book a million times greater.

I really enjoyed this one, especially the ending. The beginning was slow but had many important elements. Horace gets a storyline in this book but unfortunately Will and Halt are hardly in it. There were also several things the editor should have caught, but they were minor things. I can't wait for the next one!
Eoin Garvin
A fun book. But too predictable from the beginning. You knew who the leader was of the Red Fox Clan from the moment he is introduced. And you knew how Maddie would escape when she was being tracked down since she failed at the same exercise earlier. Other than that, a decent read.

I'm only giving this 4 stars because first, Will and Holt made a short appearance in the beginning of the book. Second, I knew exactly who the villain was as soon as they were introduced in the book. Very predictable on that part.

I enjoy Maddie even though she can be a little overconfident at times, but then she can also realize that she does do things wrong and can be a bit hard on herself.

Can I just say...HOLY CLIFFHANGER!! Why do you have to make me wait Mr. Flanagan for the next book??? We d

Przyznam, że po Kalderze nieco bałam się sięgnąć znów po Flanagana. A co, jeśli znów się rozczaruję? Na szczęście obyło się bez niemiłej niespodzianki, a Klan Czerwonego Lisa trzyma poziom poprzednich tomów! Co prawda jest może nieco mniej humoru, ale to chyba głównie dlatego, że jest również mniej Halta.

W związku ze zmianą prawa w Araulenie (o dziedziczeniu tronu także przez kobietę) powstaje Klan Czerwonego Lisa. Jego członkowie chcieliby powrotu do starych zasad i wyłącznie męskiej sukcesji.

Probably more of a 3.75/5. I did like this one. The writing was well, done and very informative/believable. A lot of the time when I read fantasy books I don't feel like the authors know what the heck they're talking about, but this one didn't give me those vibes at all. John Flanagan really knows his stuff. The writing was fantastic. All of the characters were good too. Of course they've been fleshed out for 12-14 books in some cases, but Maddie, or main character was awesome to read about! Can ...more

A story has a beginning, a middle and an end. Call me old-fashioned, but I like all of those components to be in the one book. I feel cheated by John Flanagan’s The Red Fox Clan. It would have been better titled The Red Fox Clan – Part 1.

Yes, it’s a well written children’s book. Yes, the characters are engaging. And yes, the plot is interesting. I was thoroughly enjoying following Ranger Maddie as she and her royal parents dealt with the threat posed by the Red Fox Clan – a militant group who wa

“Ooooh! Die was raak! Ik heb de roos geraakt,' gilde ze op een toon waarvan zij dacht dat die op meisjesachtige opwinding leek. Ze liet de boog vallen en klapte in haar handen.
Arnaut rolde met zijn ogen. 'Aanstelster,' zei hij zachtjes.”
“So, you’ll be heading back to Castle Araluen tomorrow?” Halt asked. Gilan regarded him, head cocked to one side. “That’s what it says here,” he said, tapping the dispatch. “But how could you have known that?” Halt smiled. “Just a lucky guess,” he said.” 0 likes
