    Story
    "Saying goodbye to old friends"

    John Flanagan had originally picked Lost Stories to tell the end of Will Treaty's tale. It did that, but we fans almost felt cheated as it was a collection of short stories. This book, set about 20 years after the events of the last full length story brings things to an end. It gives us the opportunity to meet a new generation. He has tied down most of our original adventurers in ways that prevent continuations of the old stories, but this story offers a lot of the same excitement we saw in earlier books with Will in a slightly different role. I don't give up all hope of seeing another Will Treaty book, as Flanagan has released books that take place between already published books before.

    The story is a compelling one. It dealt with darker plots than we had seen since Icebound Land, but managed to keep things lighter than that story. Introducing a new generation was Flannagn's way to say, "I'm done with this series, but I'm leaving my options open for more stories in this realm." There were several sub-plots to keep the story moving and offer character development. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoyed any of the books in this series. I wouldn't recommend it as a first book to read as it would provide spoilers for just about every book in the series.

    Story
    "Progressive, Yet Rooted..."

    Like many good things this series appears to be coming to its end...or at least the author's view of the Ranger Apprentice world. This is the only novel in the series that I can say started off slow and was a little nerve racking at the beginning with the characters themselves being a little sluggish.

    This is the first novel of the series that at first impression I would not put into the hand of a 4th grader as I would the rest of the series. The mood and situation of the story begins rather dark. What came to mind was the Hunger Games series...but gladly Flanagan brought the reader out of doom and gloom.

    By the time we were in the middle through the end of the story, John Flanagan was at his best like the stories that preceded this one. I look forward to Book 13 this fall and many more that could be written.

    John Keating does a another superb job in narration along with great characterization.

    "I hate that it's over!"

    I could have listened to this series for the rest of my life. He captivated my attention and I am NOT a book reader, therefore the audio series was a great blessing. I actually feel a little bit of grief in my heart due to the fact that was the last book in the series.

    The beginning was good, but it began to drag after a while. The ending was all right. Keep them coming.

    "My son loved this story. Though it was very funny."
    What did you love best about The Royal Ranger?

    The circle of life. A new trainee and a girls perspective on learning the ways of Rangers. I enjoyed the book with my 13 year old son.
