The renegade outlaw group known as the Outsiders may have been chased from Clonmel, but not before killing Halt's only brother. Now Rangers Halt and Will, along with the young warrior Horace, are in pursuit. The Outsiders have done an effective job of dividing the kingdom into factions and are looking to overtake Araluen. It will take every bit of skill and cunning for the Rangers to survive. Some may not be so lucky.

The international bestselling Ranger's Apprentice series turns up the tension in John Flanagan's latest epic of battles and bravery.

      AMAZING!! I'm reading it now, and now that I'm over halfway through it's just left me hanging!! It's very different than book 8, which I got kind of lost in because it wasn't as exciting or hooking as the other books in this INCREDIBLE series. It still emphasizes the Ranger's skill in camouflage and the art of unseen movement - it shows that they're not perfect archers and won't always make every shot, which I thought was good because sometimes the Rangers are so amazing that they seem unrealistic. I'm learning new skills in the woods and outdoors and even just silent movement every time I read the books and this time I'm sure I have almost the most (besides for the first book, since it's Will's first year of training). It's super suspenseful when these assassins set up to ambush the two Rangers and the young Warrior (Will, Halt, and Horace) and when the results are not as they expected, the relationship between Will, his former apprentice, and Halt his mentor, really tugged on my heartstrings. Even the friendship between Horace and Halt was very moving. It makes me have to keep reading until the end to find out what happens!! It's so cool!! I really love this books and would recommend them to anyone... no, everyone! Ranger's Apprentice is DEFINITELY my favorite series and will hopefully hold the lasting record of that until I die. LOL.

        I'm in the middle of reading it right now and I'm super hooked!! It's at a really suspenseful part and I just have to keep reading!! The first like 7 chapters was all about them tracking down the Outsiders and Tennyson's party, but then it gets super crazy because these assassins are set up to ambush Will and Halt - I'll have to see how it goes!! P.S. NOOOO spoilers!!! P.S.S. This is the BEST SERIES EVER!! P.S.S.S. That means READ IT!!!
