Author- John Flanagan
Description- This fantasy/Adventure series about a Ranger
Review-Evanlyn and Will fight for their freedom and Will is still weakened by the toxic effects of Warmweed. Evanlyn is taken captive by a Temujai worrier and Will tries to rescue her but is outnumbered by an enemy scouting party. Halt and Horace show up for a last-minute rescue. The joyful reunion is cut short when Halt makes a discovery that the Temujia army has breached the Skandian border and Araluen is next.
My take on it- I really enjoyed the developing relationship between Evanlyn and Will and this book was a lot more emotionally powered than some of the other books. I really enjoyed being in Will’s head to understand what he might be going through.
Awards-John Flanagan has won the Australian Publishers Association’s Book of the Year for “Older Children and the International Success Award” for Erak’s Ransom
Recommended Grade Level- 6.6 according to Scholastic book
