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!

Easily the best book in the series

After listening to all of the books in the ranger's apprentice series I was skeptical when it came to this book because I knew that it would go somewhere along the lines of ancient Sumarai history in some place along there and I wasn't sure how Will, Holt, Horace and the crew would fit in with this book. to my surprise this was the best book in the series! I enjoyed it from the beginning to the end and there are so many different twist and turns during the book that I truly didn't know what was going to happen. I don't want to spoil anybody's readings but I will say that if you skip this book then you cut the yourself short altogether and I'm so curious as how that book is going to be followed up. absolutely awesome!

Delightful, as always with this series

I started the series while traveling across India just for some light reading and quickly fell in love. By the end of the trip, I was scavenging for the next book and every city and airport along the way. I’m so glad to have picked this back up and can’t wait to start the next round.

This is my favorite so far!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is such an amazing book and I definitely recommend it. I’m an 11 year old girl. I like this book because it is in a very different setting then the other books so far. There is one thing that they did wrong. They pronounced jarl as “ jarl” not the correct way “yarl” . Otherwise this is an amazing book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had a hard time putting it down

It very early in the morning that I quite listening. The author of interjecting drama, action, and humor. The story teller I feel is now a good friend.
