Publisher's Summary

Months have passed since Horace departed for the eastern nation of Nihon-Ja on a vital mission. Having received no communication from him, his friends fear the worst. Unwilling to wait a second longer, Alyss, Evanlyn, and Will leave their homeland behind and venture into an exotic land in search of their missing friend.

When they finally catch up with him, they find Horace entangled in a military coup. Determined to protect the imperial throne, Will and his band of Araluens must piece together and train a force in order to fend off the master Senji warriors intent on overthrowing the emperor.

Suspense and pulse-pounding action abound in this final adventure in the worldwide phenomenon that is Ranger's Apprentice.

Great character builders for 10-90 yr olds

I have now read most of the series and am closing on the last book. I give big kudos to the author for a serious which older children and young adults will build much good clean character and understanding of military and diplomatic interactions between various groups of people. All with quite a good dose of humor and characters which certainly become beloved as the books go by!

Highly recommended for young readers!

felt a little jipped

for the Hefty price this book is swinging sure feels like it was rushed it's amazing up to about the halfway marker and then it feels like it's missing 10 Pages here and there until it finally skips what feels like an entire chapter toward the end. overall still a good book.

The Emperor of Nihon-Ja

The story was slow until the end. I struggled with finishing it. The other books were excellent. Kind of a let down for the last book.
