    "LOVE THIS SERIES! Only regret that Audible doesn't"

    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!

    Story
    "Inspiring people doing exciting things."
    Would you listen to The Icebound Land again? Why?

    Yes, because the creative, good-hearted, and courageous young adults inspire me.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    What about John Keating’s performance did you like?

    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.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The battle, when Will was diving and firing and picking off the enemy.


    Any additional comments?

    Great series, I love it.

    "Wonderful"

    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.

    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.

    "Good continuation of Ranger series"
    Would you listen to The Icebound Land again? Why?

    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.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Icebound Land?

    The ending is a happy moment. Overall this felt like an interim installment in a multi-volume arc.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The Halt and Horace scenes were my favorite.


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

    I found parts hard to listen to since I'm very fond of the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "The Story Continues"
    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "A bit dry"

    This was actually dry, Most of the Climaxes fell short of any real excitement. I found it hard to keep interested in it.
