BEST SERIES EVER!! Book 6 was kind of a continuation of Book 5, where it suddenly twists it at the end - like in the movies, where the guy you think is the good guy turns out to be the murderer in the end! Well, it turned out like this kind of in the book (although not with murderers but with taking over kingdoms and castles and locking people up and stuff like that!) Well, Will calls on the help of his friends Halt and Horace to round up an army to retake Castle Macindaw! Except, if they don't have enough men all they can do is use some brilliant genius to make up a big trick!! (Or hire some Skandians to help!... or is it Skandinavians... I forgot... ;P) Or maybe he'll do both! Really, read this book!! (and check out my other reviews on books earlier on in the series!)
The Siege of Macindaw (Ranger's Apprentice)
By John A. Flanagan
|Grades 4 - 8
|Grades 4 - 7
After years as a Ranger's apprentice, Will is now the protector of his first fief. Not long into his service, everything that can go wrong does: Keren, a renegade knight, has taken over Castle Macindaw, a strategic gateway to the North--poisoning the royal family in the process--and is holding Will's friend Alyss captive. The situation grows direr when Will uncovers Keren's secret alliance with the Scotti, who have plans to plunder Araluen. Time is of the essence, and Will must recruit a motley crew to rescue Alyss and reclaim Castle Macindaw--before the Scotti can make it their own.
This New York Times bestselling series maintains its breathless pace in this newest installment.
Perfect for fans of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, T.H. White’s The Sword in the Stone, Christopher Paolini’s Eragon series, and George R. R. Martin’s Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice and Fire series.

This awesome book is one of my favourites. The story is great in text but I would really like some pictures
This was an amazing book, where Will a ranger has to rescue a castle from the evil new ruler: Keren. Will has to plan a siege using scandians, Malkalams people and Horace. The fight to get rid of the Scotti who are going to try to take control of the castle. And, inside is someone Will truly loves. This was an action packed adventure that was amazing.
looks like a cool series
Risky! The genre is fantasy:)
