"More absorbing, straight-arrow adventure set in the medieval, alternate-world kingdom of Araluen." (Kirkus Reviews)
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.
Exhilarating. Compelling characters.
Horace does something unexpected near the end. Don't want to spoil it!
His narration is just amazing. The characters come to life, as well as the humor and poignancy. Halt and Gilan are especially good. I'd never heard this narrator before this series, and now I'm looking for his work.
The ending. Again, don't want to spoil anything. If you enjoy the relationship between Halt and Will, it is very meaningful.
I thought this was even better than the original, and was not a formula sequel at all. The relationships between the characters are so well done in the writing and in the narration, especially Halt, Gilan, Will and Horace, but also Alyss as well.
Book #2 of the series. I loved #1, The Ruins of Gorlan. Took a real interest in the young boys and the "careers" they would follow.
Book #2 has their careers decided and now how they are handling them. Unfortunately, this book is just about a lot of battles. I have no interest in war.
Didn't bother finishing.
Builds on the good foundation in book 1 of the series.
Also leaves us with a bit of a cliff hanger, but don't worry you'll be keen to move on to the next book and find out what happens.
This audio book only has chapters 1-14. not at all worth $20. I love Ranger's Apprentice and i was extremely disapointed by audible stupid mistake and apparent uncaring about this.
I am so disappointed that this audio version is only half of the book. it is missing chapters 15-27. Why charge so much for half a book?
This story is very well done. Its great to take on long trips or just to listen as a family. It is entertaining for multiple age groups.
