Ranger's Apprentice, Book 2 Audiobook

Ranger's Apprentice, Book 2: Burning Bridge

Bracing for a final clash with the evil warlord Morgarath, the Rangers rally the kingdom's allies, and Will is chosen, along with his friend Horace, as special envoy to nearby Celtica. But the simple mission soon takes an unsettling turn: the Celticans have disappeared, their town abandoned. The scheming hand of Morgarath, it seems, has been far from idle. He has found a way to bring his legions over the once impassible eastern mountains and is planning to ambush the king's army in a rout.

Publisher's Summary

The time has come for this young hero to be tested.

Bracing for a final clash with the evil warlord Morgarath, the Rangers rally the kingdom's allies, and Will is chosen, along with his friend Horace, as special envoy to nearby Celtica. But the simple mission soon takes an unsettling turn: the Celticans have disappeared, their town abandoned. The scheming hand of Morgarath, it seems, has been far from idle. He has found a way to bring his legions over the once impassible eastern mountains and is planning to ambush the king's army in a rout.

Now with help many miles away, Will and Horace are the only ones standing in the way of the dark lord's plans. They have shown great skill and courage in their training, but how will they fare in the face of true evil?

    "Love the book"
    Would you listen to Ranger's Apprentice, Book 2 again? Why?

    NO, not unless it is available read by John Keating. Did not like Stuart Blinders reading of the book at all. Turned off after only a couple of chapters.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Stuart Blinder?

    John Keating

    "A good read"

    This lives up to the first book's strong story line, and since I have heard part 8 as well I know that I actually like this series.

    "I really like this series"

    While this book is for pre-teens and teens it is really good. Believeable characters and good life lessons but not preachy or sappy. As an adult, I find it every entertaining.

    "Why?"

    Excellent series that I have been able to share with my kids. However, books 6 and 7 of the 9 part series are not available from audible. Terrible thing to do. I can find the others available elsewhere, but would really prefer to stick with audible.

    "Great Story"

    Great story but the change in the narrator sucked. The "new" narrator changed the pronouciation of several key names of people and countries. Also the characters had different accents. It really broke up the continuity of the series

    "Horrible reader"

    I have all the books in this series and unfortunately they ruined this book by using Stuart Blinder.

    "Awesome story......."

    I get that the skandians are supposed to be hard to understand but this was excessive making it more annoying than entertaining. Also it really bothered me that Lady Pauline's voice was the same tone and pitch as King Duncan and Baron Arold. Otherwise it was a great story and I'm excited for the next one!
