This book is really book 2 of 3. The first Ranger's Apprentice book stands alone, but books 2-4 are really one continuing story. My only complaint about the book is that Flanagan begins using a bit more profanity--not what I want in a young adult selection. We like to listen to audio books in the car, and I don't want my 6-year old to start repeating some of the vocabulary. I do want my 13-year old to start using some of the vocabulary--not the profanity, of course--but Flanagan does a nice job of getting a bit of advanced vocabulary into a young adult read. Flanagan's story telling continues to be quite good, and Keating's reading of the story is quite brilliant. We will be moving on after book 4 to something more appropriate for my 6-year old, but the Ranger's Apprentice series has been very good.
