Publisher's Summary

The secret history behind the New York Times best-selling Ranger's Apprentice novels.

Unconfirmed accounts of a group of Araluen warriors - tales of adventure, battle, and triumph over evil - have spread for centuries throughout the known world. Most notable is a clan shrouded in mystery, phantom warriors known as the Rangers.

Two names pass the lips of every storyteller: Halt, and his apprentice, Will. They and their comrades in arms are said to have traveled throughout the kingdom and beyond its borders, protecting those who needed it most. If true, these rumors can be only part of the story.

Only now, centuries after these men and women walked the earth, do we have confirmation of their existence. Behold: The Lost Stories.

Fabulous!

John Flanagan has brought this story line to a close by chapters explaining the loose ends from the series - Ranger's Apprentice. It isn't enough since they are still sorely missed in my life but now I know what happened to them.

Wonderful Stories

Would you consider the audio edition of Ranger's Apprentice: The Lost Stories to be better than the print version?

John Flanagan is a wonderful storyteller. The Ranger's Apprentice series are books for all ages. Get ready to watch the sun come with the audio books. Well done!

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

John Keating makes these audio books shine.

Disappointed with it being listed as Book # 11

Any additional comments?

The stories contained in the "book" were interesting, but poorly developed as with an anthology of books. My disappointment has to do with expecting another novel instead of a group of short stories. I recognize that it says "Lost Stories" however Audible has it listed as Book #11. With the MANY other books and series I have listened to (and Read) the next numbered book is another novel at least in the same world with same characters if not the continuation of the story line. I overall enjoyed the short stories, however wish that this was not labeled as book #11.

Excellent Stories and Reader

This is a very creative stories and John Keating reading really brings it to life with his voice. If you like Knights, Rangers and Adventure this is the book for you.
(This book fills in the gaps in the story after the other books end. So if you've not listened to the other books do not start with this one.)

Thank You John, both of you.

This was my favorite book series to read growing up as a child. As a young adult I don't have much time to read anymore... So finding this brought me so much joy... And my excitement grew when I heard how John Keating read, performed, and described each line bringing life to the words on the page. Thank you so much.

Good, but sad too.

I loved it, but it was very sad in parts. A good ending summary though.
