Ranger's Apprentice, Book 2: Burning Bridge | [John Flanagan]

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?

    "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.

    "Pick the other Narrator for this burining bridge"

    The first Night Ranger Apprentice book had left me wanting to hear more about Will and I eagerly picked up the second book in the series. I was extremely disappointed. This narration was *unlistenable*. His accents were over the top. His timing was off. He emphasized the wrong part of the sentence. (Who emphasizes the words "he said").

    I had just about decided to read the book instead of listening when I determined that there was another audio edition of the exact same book. The other edition was much more enjoyable.

    In summary... this is a poor exposure to the world of the Night Ranger's Apprentice. There is another narration of this exact same book. Save your money and look for it.!

    "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.

    "Outstanding"
    What did you love best about Ranger's Apprentice, Book 2?

    This was an awesome action packed book for all. It is a continuation of the first book and leaves you wanting to read the 3rd book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ranger's Apprentice, Book 2?

    Book 1 of this series develops many of the charaters and it was fun to watch the characters play their roles.


    What does Stuart Blinder bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice and accent add to this novel. It sets the theme and background.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme re-actions other than wanting to continue reading.

    "Unrealistic character development and plot."
    Any additional comments?

    The scene at the burning bridge is implausible. The way the ranger tries to relight the fire is unrealistic in the extreme as anyone who has even been camping should know.
