Lark, hmmmm, what can I say, he was a surprise especially because he has a talent that Ryder has too; only we don't find out what it is until the last Chade roundup. & I had a feeling that he has purposely failed his tests to get away from his father & his father's Order once reading about everything that they did to him.
Ivy, on the outside portrays a cold hearted b****, but on the inside especially as this book takes her on a journey she thaws out & in the end she jokes with the best of them. At 1st even though she was attracted to Lark she felt that he was too young especially since her younger brother Beyden is also his friend. She fights her attraction to him until the end (before she gets injured) with everything she has.
Some new questions have formed but some were answered in this book & it was very nice finding out that there are many more people on the side of Max; even more than she knew. I will definitely be looking forward to reading the next book to find more answers about what is going on; so, Montana you better get cracking as I'm sure that's it's not only me that wants answers.
Lark has always been a favorite, but to really get to know him was amazing. There are so many different facets to him and we learn something about him that I think is essential to the final battle (nope, not telling).
And Ivy, wow there is so much hidden under that Ranger facade. But, even though she is 160 years old, she still has some growing to do and it was fascinating watching her.
As always, Max and the rest are a presence and I love that. We also learn something about Max that totally catches you by surprise. Once you read it though it makes a whole lot of sense!
Just go buy the book! You will not be disappointed!!!!
The ‘Elemental Paladins’ series is a series that you really need to read in order. I was late in discovering it but the plus side of that is that I could read the books in one go. I really loved and enjoyed the first three books. ‘Ranger’ is the fourth book and the newest book in the series. I was really looking forward to this one, because it’s about Lark (the youngest paladin in Max’s order) and Ivy, the stoic ranger who we already met in the previous books.
After reading it, I can say that I liked the story but it didn’t hold my attention as much as the other books.
Every society or culture has his own bogeyman, in the warden/paladin society that ‘honor’ goes to the rangers. They are feared because when a warden goes to the ‘dark’ side and become a chade, it is the rangers who goes after him, to imprison or kill him. Something that doesn’t really make you popular with the rest of society. So being a ranger is a lonely job. But Ivy is okay with that, she isn’t a really social person and she’s happy with the love of her younger brother Breyden and the company of her fellow rangers. Ivy is happy with her life like it is but with the arrival of Max, things are changing and that’s also the case with Ivy’s life. For the first time she’s also accepted by non-rangers. Max and her order have no problem with the fact that Ivy is a ranger. This is something that give Ivy really mixed feelings. And then you have Lark, one of Max’s paladin. A younger guy who seems always happy and smiling and also someone who gives her other feelings. Feelings that Ivy doesn’t want but that she can’t hide from. So she tries to ignore him but when Max sends them on a mission together to find chades who can be saved, it becomes very hard to ignore him.
Lark is intrigued by the stoic ranger. Ivy is a mystery to him, a mystery that he wants to uncover but Ivy isn’t a ranger for nothing. She knows how to build walls between them and then you have also the fact that she considers him too young for her. She thinks of him like a young, pleasant but useless child! She couldn’t be more wrong, his father made sure that Lark know how to fight and defend himself. He simply decided for personal reasons to hide his warrior talents from the world.
So now Lark has to prove to Ivy that he could be the right man for her and the more time he spends with Ivy the more he’s convinced that she’s the woman for him but Ivy isn’t an easy woman to please and after some time Lark is getting desperate! Can he convince Ivy of giving the both of them a chance at love?
The focus in this book was more on Lark’s intelligent (something that we saw traces of in the other books) and the way that his mind works. But Lark’s also a very talented warrior and I missed this a little bit in this story. There was some fighting but I would have loved more action of the warrior Lark and the ranger Ivy. Ivy was also a very different character than Max, Cali or Dianna. She was more silent, she liked to think things through before reaction to something. Their ‘courting’ was more an intelligent courting in my eyes, yes, there were sex scenes but very late in the story.
Just like in the other books, this story had also his little surprises in it. That’s one of the things that I really love of this series. The writer is capable to surprise me in every book with some new detail or secret that’s being revealed.
‘Ranger’ was a good story but it didn’t give me the same high like the other books in this series. Everything in his book was slower, the romance was a slow burner, the pace of the story was slower, it also had a little bit of a different feel and vibe for me. But it wasn’t bad, just a little different.
This story felt more like a warming up to the next book ‘Custodian’. Every move and detail in the story felt more like a chess board where every player was set up for the big battle that’s coming, a battle between good and bad. That isn’t bad but that made the story less fluent for me. I really appreciated the note that the writer wrote in the back of the book with a little information for the next book. So we know what to expect of it.
I enjoyed ‘Ranger’ but I would have like it more with some more depth and craziness in it. But I can understand why the writer wanted to slow it down and give us first more information before the next book. I’m very looking forward to it!
