Book 7, the latest adventure in the Ranger’s Apprentice series, chronologically takes place after Book 4. Soon to conclude his apprenticeship and become a ranger, young Will joins Halt, Gilan, Horace, Evanlyn, and Svengal on a perilous mission to free their friend Erak, who has been captured by the Arridians and held for ransom. The vaguely Middle Eastern desert setting provides new challenges, new allies, and new foes for the Araluens and their Skandian friends. Bringing together many favorite characters for a grand adventure, this book delivers both excitement and quiet good times. Grades 5-8. --Carolyn Phelan
"As with the rest of the series it's fun, it has moments of peril and the characters are coming into their own, especially as our lead hero comes to a momentous moment in his own life" -- Tatty tattystreasurechest.blogspot.com "Flanagan has a gift of writing that is beguiling and which grips you from page one. Again I highly recommend these books for all ages" -- Vicky www.bfkbooks.com
