The international bestselling series with over 5 million copies sold in the U.S. alone!
After years as a Ranger's apprentice, Will is now the protector of his first fief. Not long into his service, everything that can go wrong does: Keren, a renegade knight, has taken over Castle Macindaw, a strategic gateway to the North--poisoning the royal family in the process--and is holding Will's friend Alyss captive. The situation grows direr when Will uncovers Keren's secret alliance with the Scotti, who have plans to plunder Araluen. Time is of the essence, and Will must recruit a motley crew to rescue Alyss and reclaim Castle Macindaw--before the Scotti can make it their own.

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.
