And then Evanlyn and Will! Will's so sweet and courageous, and Evanlyn is epic. AND HORACE. Okay, so Horace is pretty much my second fa ...more
The story took a bit of a darker turn in this book but exciting nonetheless.
I found it interesting how the author turned more and more away from a single POV story during this book. There were always some chapters from different POVs but mostly the story was told from Will's POV. In this book that became even less (I'm not gonna tell you why because ...more
I know that I've said this a couple of times already but it deserves repeating: I am enjoying this series so much more than I would have ever expected. I've flown through these first three books, and have the fourth book sitting on my bedside table begging to be read. It's completely addictive.
The characters are some of my favourites already. We get to see a new side of all the characters in this sequel. I especially loved getting into Halt's head and seeing him ...more
Horace and Halt were a fun team, although not as entertaining as Halt and Will often are. Their adventures and dedication to Will were a nice touch to the story and we got to see q ...more
As captivating as they were, if the 200+ pages of this book had been summarized into a chapter or two and had been merged with the previous or next installment of the series, I would have liked it much more. But the plot just doesn't deserve a whole book of the series to itself. And I understand that Flanagan was merely giving the readers a chance to identify with Evanlyn, but he didn't have to cut Will out of the action do so. The series is called the Ranger's Apprentice af ...more
The book was good but not great.
This book comprises of journey and survival of two parties. Horace and halt, will and Cassandra aka evanlyn.
The main purpose of this book is to lay the framework for the next one. And it does a good work in that.
The end of the book didn't really have what I would call a climax - but these are shor ...more
I read this book in less than a day, which is not really normal for me.(I tend to read slow!) But it's just so fast-paced and absolutely unputdownable. My love and admiration for Halt increased throughout the whole book as I read all the sacrifices he made in order to rescue Will; purposely publicly insulting King Duncan, and hoping the resulting punishment would be banishment, although it could have resulted in death; being expelled from the Ranger Corps and having to ha ...more
Kidnapped after the fierce battle with Lord Morgarath, Will and Evanlyn are bound for Skandia as captives aboard a fearsome wolfship. Halt has sworn to rescue Will, and he will do anything to keep his promise—even defy his King.
Expelled from the Rangers he has served so loyally, Halt is joined by Will’s friend Horace as he travels toward Skandia. On their way, they are challenged constantly by freelance knights—but Horace knows a thing or two about combat. ...more
This book is about Halt (who I really want to start calling Logan, but I'll restrain myself) and Horace trying to track down Evanlyn and Will, and about Evanlyn and Will trying to survive their kidnapping. There's a lot of telling instead of showing in this one. It's not the greatest, but it's not too bad either.
Also, because of the showing instead of telling, I don't like Evanlyn. I don't want her dead hate he ...more
More detailed review to come, as I need to fall back into my old schedule.
For mysteries by this same author, see John A. Flanagan.
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 ...more

Did that hurt?" Halt asked, and Horace looked at him with exasperation.
Of course it did," he said sharply. "That's why I said 'ow!”
