Publisher Description

The international bestselling series with over 5 million copies sold in the U.S. alone! When Horace travels to the exotic land of Nihon- Ja, it isn't long before he finds himself pulled into a battle that is not his - but one he knows in his heart he must wage. A kingdom teeters on the edge of chaos when the Nihon-Ja emperor, a defender of the common man, is forcibly overthrown, and only Horace, Will, and his Araluen companions can restore the emperor to the throne. Victory lies in the hands of an inexperienced group of fighters, and it's anybody's guess who will make the journey home to Araluen. 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 Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice and Fire series.

    " This was not my favorite Ranger's APprentice book. I am not a fan of Chinese/Japanese culture, and this was chock full of it. 9 ended well enough, so you might as well steer clear of this one. The only really good thing about it was another Halt/seasick scene. "

    " Great finish to the Ranger's Apprentice series. I listened to them. They are an adventure series that starts with a group of orphans getting placed in different apprenticeships. Will is the main character. He become's the Ranger's (Halt) apprentice. "

    " I thought that this book was very good. As always, Flanagan is on a roll. The only thing I found unsatisfactory was that this is the last book in the series! NOT FAIR! "

    " This book was AMAZING!!! I liked it just as much as The Battle of Skandia and The Seige of Macindaw. With all the right Characters, and a huge battle at the end, this book was the perfect ending to an epic series. "

    " I LOVED these books! So after 10 books you would usually think "ok thats enough" I would not mind reading more about these characters! I totally fell in love with them and I would love it if Flanagan revisted this later on. "

    " And a wrap. The ending of the series left me in no doubt that this was the last in the series, although there is a mop-up book to finish. A little twee finale, although the bulk of the book was of the usual standard, with the concept that women are as capable as men right at the forefront! "

    " It was an AWESOME book. Very hard to put down. It was very exciting and interesting. Not boring at any part of the book. I like how the John Flanagon switched between characters instead of just doing one character. It is a very good adventure book and very exciting. "

    " It was as good as all the other books, but with less humor, in my opinion. It was much more serious than the other 9. It was also a new writing style, you could tell. But over all, a very good book:) "

    " The last book in a series of 10. These are good books for boys and girls ages 10-15. I even enjoyed them as an adult. This last book is my least favorite, but only because it starts slow. The ending is exciting and wraps up the series. I highly recommend the series as a whole. "

About the Author

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.
