have #6 & 7 of the series. However, my library doesn't either, so it may be that they were never recorded. I don't know. The author writing is so interesting & captivating, adding twists & turns to the plot that are unexpected. He has developed the characters so well and is so consistent with them throughout the series to the point where I feel like I almost know them in person!
I like a bit of romance, but I LOVE that there is no smut or language in the books, yet I am a grandmother and still totally enjoy this series.
I hope that John Flanagan writes other series as well!
Yes, because the creative, good-hearted, and courageous young adults inspire me.
I love Will because of his non-stop pursuit of perfection at his trade, and because of his love and gratefulness for the people in his life.
I really appreciate his talent with the voices. The recording is a little unprofessional as you hear him swallowing and breathing at each new chapter.
The battle, when Will was diving and firing and picking off the enemy.
Great series, I love it.
Estate planning lawyer and mom to two boys. My older son liked audiobooks as an infant, and I've listened to a lot since then.
Probably wouldn't listen again if my 11 year old weren't insisting on it. I adore the characters but found this installment darker and more depressing.
The ending is a happy moment. Overall this felt like an interim installment in a multi-volume arc.
The Halt and Horace scenes were my favorite.
I found parts hard to listen to since I'm very fond of the characters.
I wouldn't recommend this installment to younger, more sensitive listeners. The first two I would recommend to all ages who were old enough to follow the narrative.
Apart from the price, this book is a wonderfuly fast paced and action paced. It deserves a five star rating along with the ranger's apprentice series.
The book resolves some of the minor conflicts that arise during the travels but the overall conflict is far from closed. A great performance and well written but I am glad I am not reading this book immediately after its release, or I would have been frustrated with the ending. As it is I will be grudgingly purchasing the next book in this series to feed the addiction it has started in me.
Nv Native American, 1 room school house, hi school of 30, Raised 4-2& 2 ala Brady Bnch, lv audio books, home bound widow. M happy. Thnx AB.
Has anyone besides me noticed that the summaries on the first three books say nothing about YA or youthful reader's author? Then in book 4's summary, you can't escape it. The first paragraph is devoted to the subject! I peeked ahead and there the same from here on in.
There are 2 versions of most of the Ranger's Apprentice floating around on Audible. While I think this reader does leaps and bounds better, I would be remiss to not mention the poor editing. Occasionally leaving 2 or 3 second gaps in between chapters, which can be quite jarring, and even the sounds of the reader drinking water and clearing his throat.
I much prefer this particular performance over the others out there, but that might be a sticking point for some listeners.
The story is, as always with this series; delightful.
