In this tenth iteration of the twelve books in the Ranger’s Apprentice series, you get to
experience yet another amazing adventure into the far reaches of the world of the Ranger’s
Apprentice when you see a not-so-little-anymore little ranger (Will), a little, but older ranger
(Halt), a popular-but-not-Erak-popular pirate (Gundar), a knight (Horace), a princess (Evanlyn),
a politician (Alyss), and an old friend (Selethen) travel to the lands of Nihon-Ja. There, this
group of unexpected friends face off against a rebel warlord and come up with shady battle
tactics along the way. All of this culminates into what I believe to be one of the best books in the
series. The book is action-packed and packed with all the best characters (except Erak and the
medieval drug dealer... healer, sorry). It is truly a call back to the earlier books when there was
less intrigue and more fighting. You don’t want to miss this book. Besides, you finally get to see
Alyss dish out her feeling about Evanlyn. Don’t read this far only to give up. Read it. Seriously,
read it. Now.
