The secret history of the New York Times bestselling Ranger’s Apprentice, with over 5 million copies sold in the US alone!

Unconfirmed accounts of a group of Araluen warriors—tales of adventure, battle, and triumph over evil—have spread for centuries throughout the known world. Most notable is a clan shrouded in mystery, phantom warriors known as the Rangers.

Two names pass the lips of every storyteller: Halt, and his apprentice, Will. They and their comrades in arms are said to have traveled throughout the kingdom and beyond its borders, protecting those who needed it most. If true, these rumors can be only part of the story.

Only now, centuries after these men and women walked the earth, do we have confirmation of their existence. Behold The Lost Stories, book 11 in the Ranger’s Apprentice epic.

Perfect for fans of J. R. R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, T. H. White’s The Sword in the Stone, Christopher Paolini’s Eragon series, and George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series.

  • “A most welcome postscript to a scintillating series.

Listener Reviews

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Review by Dracolibris | 2/17/2014

    " This book brilliantly concludes The Ranger's Apprentice series by giving the readers the closure they never knew they needed, and answers to questions the author was often asked. It also have a clever way of setting up Flanagan's next series, which I hope will be just as good, if not better. I was sad to say goodbye to Will, Halt, Horace, Tug and the rest of the family we have come to love, but I thank John Flanagan for giving us this last parting gift. "

    " Loved it. It was a great way to wrap everything up without having a full-length novel for each story. I love you, John Flanagan!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Review by Linette | 2/8/2014

    " I'm technically done with this book...no scratch that I;m not really done but I just haven't read the story "The Hibernian" about Halt's mentor. But yeah, I just wanted to say I'm so so so happy that Will and Alyss get married!! Yay!! and Horace and Evanlyn do also!! Also, Jenny and Gilan are probably next! Whoopee!! But I really want to know what happened to George! Like he was in The Emperor of Nihon-Ja but now I don't know where he is! As usual, John Flanagan weaves humor, action, and drama into another book of his fabulous series. I am so happy I bought this book. But I'm kinda sad that I never gOt tO read about Alyss and Will's wedding dance because their two dances were interrupted-Pauline and Halt's and Horace and Evanlyn's...that's so sad. i want to know what it would've been like. "

    " I didn't really get into this book. The stories were too random and to flippiant, and I am not a fan of short stories in the first place. Oh well. "

About the Author
Author John Flanagan

John A. 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 he worked, however, that his talent was revealed. It turned out one of the company directors agreed with John’s assessment of the executive, and happily agreed to train John in copywriting. After writing advertising copy for the next two decades, John teamed with an old friend to develop a television sitcom, Hey Dad!, which went on to air for eight years. John began writing the Ranger’s Apprentice series as a way to encourage his son, Michael, to enjoy reading. He currently lives in the suburb of Manly, Australia, with his wife.
