The Ranger’s Apprentice: The Battle for Skandia
By John Flanagan
Poor Will…and Evanlyn, of course. But at least we know they are escaped!!! Back to topic, here is the forth book!!! Well…as you have probably notice, the first book was mainly about Will’s training. Then the second book, the third book and the forth book have connection. They are all in the same story line, started with Morgarath’s invasion, then the captive, then now…the following story line in Skandia. All and as you might guess, the later books will also connect like this, not too long but with few books together. I’ll tell you the other connections when the time comes…and now…The Battle for Skandia.
Still far from their homeland after escaping slavery in the icebound land of Skandia, Will and Evanlyn's plans to return to Araluen are spoiled when Evanlyn is taken captive by a Temujai warrior. Though still weakened by the warmweed's toxic effects, Will employs his Ranger training to locate his friend, but an enemy scouting party has him fatally outnumbered. Will is certain death is close at hand, until Halt and Horace make a daring, last-minute rescue. The reunion is cut short, however, when Halt makes a horrifying discovery: Skandia's borders have been breached by the entire Temujai army. And Araluen is next in their sights. If two kingdoms are to be saved, an unlikely union must be made. Will it hold long enough to vanquish a ruthless new enemy? Or will past tensions spell doom for all? The battles and drama are nonstop in Book Four of this hugely popular epic.
As you can read from the summery, Will and Evanlyn were found by Halt and Horace!!! Yeah!!! So were they going back to Araluen? NOOO!!! The Temujai was here! To invade Skandia! Ahh!!! Wait…shouldn’t we hate Skandia for hurting Will and Evanlyn? Well…but we want Araluen to be saved!!! So they must stay to protect Skandia…which will put all of them into grave danger. Why was that? Evanlyn’s true identity was discovered!!! And the terrible vow!!! All of them were worried about her safety, fortunately, Will saved the day!!! Thank goddness!!! Well…let’s leave you with the story. And then…the war was coming, preparing, blablabla. Will came up with a plan that would save Skandia, and Horace kept seizing his chance to learn his skill of using sword. Without doubt, Halt also played an important part in the battle strategy. And what about Evanlyn? What did she do? She was about to found a great secret! Which would save all of them! And that involved the future of Skandia as well. What was interesting about this book is that we were about to have a selection! The progressing of the selection was so entertaining! Especially Halt’s reaction!!! Haha! But I still couldn’t figure out what he was thinking at first…apparently, nobody did. After all, Halt is Halt.
Now…character time!!! Yeah! But actually…there aren’t really many “new important character” in this book, so that’s just start with Temujai! The horrible invader of Skandia. They were even a better warrior than Skandian, according to Halt, the battle between Temujai and Skandia would be bloody and brutal…but Temujai army would win. They were especially good at arching, and that’s rangers were here for! Since they were probably the people who can defeat those Temujai. So, are you interested with Temujai now? Yeah yeah, I know you already get what I am about to say…so…haha!
