John Flanagan makes a spectacular return to the world of Ranger's Apprentice - but what has happened since you last saw Will and his friends might shock you!

Will took an oath when he joined the Ranger Corps. Does it mean nothing to him now?

After a senseless tragedy destroys his life, Will is obsessed with punishing those responsible – even if it means leaving the Ranger Corps. His worried friends must find a way to stop him taking such a dark path.

It is Halt who suggests the solution: Will must take an apprentice. The candidate Halt has in mind will surprise everyone – and it will be a request Will cannot refuse.

Training a rebellious, unwilling apprentice is hard enough. But when a routine mission uncovers a shocking web of crime, Will must decide where his priorities lie – finishing his quest for revenge, or saving innocent lives?

The final book of the Ranger’s Apprentice series raises the stakes higher than ever. Is Will on his last mission for the Ranger Corps?

Praise for Ranger's Apprentice: The Royal Ranger

“Flanagan's deft world -building and characterisation draw you in, and his ability to write realistic action scenes and create nail- biting suspense keep you hooked.”

Aleesah Darlison, Sun Herald

“A rollicking read.”

Literacy Learning

“The author’s trademark writing style serves up action, suspense and light humour, all woven into a marvellous medieval adventure, combined with warm characterisation and colourful, believeable settings. The most beguiling but uplifting characteristics of the Ranger’s Apprentice series are the ongoing warm friendships and loyalties that exist between the leading characters, and the fact that good resoundingly triumphs over evil. Recommended – for the series fans, highly recommended!”

Russ Merrin, Magpies

“With constantly changing scenery, twists and turns at every corner of the storyline and shocking revelations, this book is 473 pages of unadulterated (pure) writing genius.”

Bailey Dawson, Year 12, Gold Coast Bulletin
