Publisher's Summary

Number one New York Times best-selling author John Flanagan returns to the world of Ranger's Apprentice, beginning a new story arc starring fan favorites, Will and Maddie (Ranger's Apprentice: The Royal Ranger). 

Picking up where Ranger's Apprentice: The Royal Ranger left off, this next installment continues the story arc featuring young apprentice, Maddie, and the student-turned-master, Will Treaty. The time has come for the next generation to assume the mantle and become protectors of the kingdom of Araluen.  

After passing her third-year assessment as a ranger's apprentice, Maddie is called home to Castle Araluen. Forced to keep her ranger training a secret, Maddie feels trapped by the monotony of castle life and longs to find a way out. But there are whisperings of a new threat to the kingdom. The mysterious Red Fox Clan, a group of anarchists all donning fox masks, have threatened Castle Araluen and question Princess Cassandra and Madelyn's succession to the throne. Will they succeed in unseating Cassandra and Madelyn and take the throne for themselves?  

Best-selling author of the Ranger's Apprentice and Brotherband series, John Flanagan returns in the captivating follow-up to The Royal Ranger. Perfect for fans of Tolkien, Redwall, and Game of Thrones!

A good series

Like seeing old friends. This book brings back old characters from Flanagans popular series and promises more in a sequel to come.

Narrator was good with an interesting storyline.

Half a book!

Love the series but this one is somewhat disappointing it ends half way through the story. Not even a partial resolve leading up to the chase book that often comes with the ranger stories.

And no suprizes in the plot to speak of.

If you haven't bought it yet wait for the next books release before you get stuck waiting for an ending.

Time to wait

If you notice the only thing people can say about the book negatively is that it ends on a to be continued. Lets be honest, when it comes to a series like this it is always a good thing to know more books are on the way, especially when pt 1 is the same length as a typical rangers apprentice.

this is only half a book.

if you're going to charge full price for a book you should tell the full story. There is nothing worse than investing time and money into a book only to hear the words to be continued at the end. I don't mind a story continuing along in a series but this is ridiculous. There is absolutely no reason to end this book where you did other than pure greed.

A little disappointed

I’ve been listening to this series for over 6 years. This is the first time I thought John Flanagan dropped the ball. One of the things that’s beginning to bother me is the increase of conversations with the horses. I know I know I like some of it too but a 1/4 of the dialogue came from the rangers just talking to the horses!
Anyway I’m just not crazy about the way he wrote this one. Just doesn’t feel right and totally made me raise an eyebrow a few times. Cliffhangers ok when you do it right but this didn’t even land in a spot that makes sense. I’m not saying don’t listen to it! But be prepared for a weird ending!

To be continued???

Since when do these books end in "... to be continued?" Feels like a cash grab just to string you along and spend your money to get the rest of the story. The story is good, but much of the first book felt like filler going over well known into for anyone who's read the previous books. Also, it cuts off right at the point when it starts to get interesting and anything worthwhile is happening . Shane on you John for taking the route of "swindler"!

great story to a new group of characters

this is an exhilarating book that introduces us to some new characters while showing us how some old characters have evolved in the series. my only issue is that the next part of this book isn't available to purchase yet!

I'm furious it ended!!!

such a good book. I didn't like the idea of princess Madelyn becoming the protagonist I'm miss halt the most but he and will made these books. But Flanagan has made me love yet another character. On top of that this book is non stop action and I couldn't wait to hear more!
