The Royal Ranger by John Flanagan
Ranger's Apprentice series. Random House, 2013. ISBN 9781864718195
(Ages: 8+). Highly recommended. Mediaeval fiction. The stunning climax to a well-loved series, The Royal Ranger will have you frozen to your seat from start to finish. A thrilling read, the least expected becomes reality and the most likely goes up in smoke.
After Will's life is rocked by a horrible tragedy, he becomes obsessed with bringing those responsible to justice. As such, he is in danger of being revoked from the Ranger Corps. It is Will's mentor Halt who suggests the solution; Will must take an apprentice. But Halt's candidate breaks all the rules and goes against all tradition.
The Royal Ranger takes you back to the beginning with a new student and a new adventure, along with a lot of the old humour mixed in. This book is extremely well written and I highly recommend it.
