  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shane | 2/8/2014

    " Very good book. Just seemed to go really slow. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 The Mad Elvish Poet | 2/2/2014

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Will Harris | 1/25/2014

    " It was a EPIC ending to the ranger's apprentice series that I really love and will start a fan club for this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kriztian | 1/24/2014

    " A new adventure with new characters and adventures "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara Robarts | 1/18/2014

    " Good read. Action, character, humor, a little love and jealousy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellie | 1/18/2014

    " best in the series!! this better not be the ned! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Minniedayton | 1/17/2014

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kylia | 1/10/2014

    " 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! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tarkaneea | 12/10/2013

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina | 11/28/2013

    " good ending to the series "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roberta | 11/27/2013

    " Excellent YA series. Well written and well plotted. Good character development as well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Randi | 11/23/2013

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenna | 10/7/2013

    " I'm glad I've finished the Rangers Apprentice series but it started to feel quite repetitious after the Siege book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sally McRogerson | 3/14/2013

    " 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! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ldoherty2501 | 12/20/2012

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lyndsay | 12/5/2012

    " I rather enjoyed this whole series. I definitely recommend you read them. My 12 year old son rather enjoys these books as well! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adam | 12/4/2012

    " I love the entire series - fun characters and great storytelling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alysia | 11/17/2012

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Randalynn | 11/17/2012

    " 3.5 stars it broke the mold from the repetitive second half of the series with some new strategies and daring risks. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzette | 9/16/2012

    " This one started out slower than the rest, but I really enjoyed this series. It took me a long time to read cause I was distracted by the Count of Monte Cristo. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joey | 8/12/2012

    " It was a good book that made me sad to know that it will be the last one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendee | 4/27/2012

    " 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:) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 4/11/2012

    " This book was as good as all the others. In fact it's one of my favorites in the series. I absolutely loved it! The action and adventure were great once again, and I enjoyed the new setting and characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 J. | 2/28/2012

    " Maybe the best of the whole series. I loved the strategies and the value placed on integrity and honor. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jameelah L | 1/4/2012

    " So far an exciting book with alot of interest. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 10/15/2011

    " I love this series. The characters are witty, loyal, and courageous. The plot of this book was well done (as with the other books in the series). I especially loved getting aquainted with a new kingdom and characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dave | 10/14/2011

    " Love, love, love this series and it continues to be great. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 10/14/2011

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 10/3/2011

    " I think this is my favorite of all the Ranger's Apprentice books. All the characters that have been in past books were in this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joey | 9/26/2011

    " It was a good book that made me sad to know that it will be the last one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 9/22/2011

    " I thought this was the last book in the series, but I just found number 11 today. I'm not complaining though, because I love these books. "

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.
