The Royal Ranger (Ranger’s Apprentice, #12)

By John Flanagan

Publication date: October 1st, 2013


After a senseless tragedy destroys his life, Will is obsessed with punishing those responsible – even if it means leaving the Ranger Corps. His worried friends must find a way to stop him taking such a dark path.

It is Halt who suggests the solution: Will must take an apprentice. The candidate Halt has in mind surprises everyone – and it’s a request Will cannot refuse.

Training a rebellious, unwilling apprentice is hard enough. But when a routine mission uncovers a shocking web of crime, Will must decide where his priorities lie – finishing his quest for revenge, or saving innocent lives?

John Flanagan makes a spectacular return to the world of Ranger’s Apprentice – but what has happened since you last saw Will and his friends might shock you!

What. WHAT. “Senseless tragedy destroys his life”?!?!??! What! So, technically this one already came out, in AU, but I don’t live in AU, so it’ll take up to 10 more days for my copy to get here! GAH! Anyway, long story short, this is the most amazing book series ever (other than Harry Potter) and can be compared to no others. Haven’t read it yet? DO IT! DO IT! :) I can’t believe it’s almost over. All of it. Will. Halt. Araluen. THe world. The stories. The characters. The tears. The laughter. Excuse me while I go cry in a corner.

On other news, I’m dressing up as one of the characters from this series (Alyss Mainwaring) for Halloween! I’ll have to post pictures. I’m excited. :)

What’s your “Waiting On” book for the week?
