This book typifies what I love about this series:
plucky, determined heroes; flashes of humor when things start to get dark and good triumphing over evil. ( )

Because of the Ranger's Apprentice Day I recently attended with my youngest sister (and the following meet-and-greet with the author) I decided it was time to read more books in the Ranger's Apprentice series and start where I left off.

The Siege of Macindaw is the sixth instalment of the series and forms one story together with the fifth book. The main thing happening in this book is the actual siege.

I was a little bit disappointed that it turned out to be almost solely about the siege. It's a 300-page read and it reads very fast, but focussing so much on this one event made it really feel like a middle book. In the end, not that much happens at all.

Also I didn't remember just how much these books are focussed on younger readers. The hero's are all very heroic and they are sure very smart/strong/overall awesome. The main villain was mostly mean.

I hope I'll like the next book in the series better. ( )

Yet another great book in the Ranger's Apprentice series. This is my second time reading it, and I enjoyed it just as much as the first ( )

This is the sixth book of John Flanagan's series. What I thought would be a continuum of the first five books actually had its own set of page turning action that folds over itself. He works his magic by changing the setting of this story and introducing another new group of enemies that all readers never expected to see. Will, the main character, now becomes a full Ranger in Araluen and discovers the stressful life of protecting his beloved land from his enemies. "The Sorcerer of the North" is a very ravishing book with plenty of action and adventure to keep pages turning and minds stuck in the world of "The Rangers Apprentice." ( )

After years as a Ranger?s apprentice, Will is now the protector of his first fief. Not long into his service, everything that can go wrong does: Keren, a renegade knight, has taken over Castle Macindaw, a strategic gateway to the North?poisoning the royal family in the process?and is holding Will?s friend Alyss captive. The situation grows direr when Will uncovers Keren?s secret alliance with the Scotti, who have plans to plunder Araluen. Time is of the essence, and Will must recruit a motley crew to rescue Alyss and reclaim Castle Macindaw?before the Scotti can make it their own.
