Publisher's Summary

The international best-selling series with more than five million copies sold in the US alone!

Still far from their homeland after escaping slavery in the icebound land of Skandia, Will and Evanlyn's plans to return to Araluen are spoiled when Evanlyn is taken captive by a Temujai warrior. Though still weakened by the warmweed's toxic effects, Will employs his Ranger training to locate his friend, but an enemy scouting party has him fatally outnumbered. 

Will is certain death is close at hand, until Halt and Horace make a daring, last-minute rescue. The reunion is cut short, however, when Halt makes a horrifying discovery: Skandia's borders have been breached by the entire Temujai army. And Araluen is next in their sights. 

If two kingdoms are to be saved, an unlikely union must be made. Will it hold long enough to vanquish a ruthless new enemy? Or will past tensions spell doom for all?

The battles and drama are nonstop in audiobook four of this hugely popular epic. 

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.

Never got bored

This was an amazing book. I never get bored of it and I've read and listened to it multiple times. I can easily listen to this book while doing the things I need around the house. This book is super funny and I love the characters. I also love how Flanagan can switch from serious to funny like the snap of a finger. All in all, I love this book and the rest of the series.

Rollercoaster of emotions. read end of review!

This was another wonderful adventure! There was plenty of action,planning and emotions throughout the book! Make sure to bring tissues because near the end you'll need it! ⚠️For a chronological continuation read Book 7 "Erak's Randsom" next! then go back to book 5⚠️

Will continue reading

The whole series is a winner. I feel more comfortable with stories that play on VIking stereotypes. They are strong; they can take it.

Excellent Story Telling

Personally I've enjoyed story and the performance. Highly recommend to anyone. Will is by far my favorite although the other characters are excellent as well. Love the development of each in turn.

One book to not be rushed

John Keating is an excellent narrator! Each book in the series has been memorable. Read these books as a middle schooler and have enjoyed returning to them in my 20's. Authentic story with beautiful characters. 10/10

Flanagan does it again.

This part of the Rangers Apprentice really brings things together. I don't want to spoil anything but I felt much better at the end. On to the next part of the adventure!!
