    And thus the two-book adventure in wintry Norgate comes to a close. Fair winds to the Skandians, particularly Gundar Hardstriker.

Excellent narration by William Zappo, but next time, no musical intrusions after each chapter. Please.

    Ok so I gave this book one star because it was that bad. Really was it that bad? yes it was that bad and more. I was so disappointed in this sixth book of the Ranger's Apprentice series! The first four books where so great and this one fell utterly short. I HAD hoped after reading the last book and being bored out of my mind that this next one would pick up a little, boy did it not.

Quiet frankly it got to be a chore reading it by the end of the book and I was jumping in my seat waiting to get done with it so I could wright a raving review. Ok so maybe not that bad but still, it was pretty darn bad. Some of the things I found wrong where it were that it kept repeating the same stuff, over and over and over and over and you get the point:) Like the information about how castle stairway's were built so that the person coming down had the advantage. That is great information and all but I really don't think we need to read it three times, I mean come on does the author think we're that dumb? Also the details on the fighting scenes were just, boring, and dumb and so trivial that I was rolling my eyes and skimming over lines. AND the 'quote' humorous moments in the book were all just stupid and dumb and boring and ahhhhhh they didn't need to be there. AND FUTHERMORE! In one part the 'sorcerer' aka healer in the forest who has been misunderstood all these years (How predictable is that?) tells Will that he needs fog to make his illusions in front of the castle they are sieging. And Will promptly replies "How will we do that when there is no fog around the castle?" and Mr. healer comes back with the brilliant reply "We will just use pipes and water and make fog!". Ok really? THAT IS SO DARN LAME!!!!!!!!!!!! First off how the heck can you make fog, second using pipes in a medieval setting which I doubt they would have had pipes in is so darn stupid and third, It's just stupid! Ok so those are just some of the major things I found lame and boring and stupid and so darn annoying with this book. I'm sure if I put my mind to it I could find several more but alas I don't have the time as I need to start a hopefully better book:)

    I've found these books to be sort of, "uneven". I liked the early books, but the sequence concerning Will's captivity lost me some what as I found my interest waning. A lot of this will of course be somewhat personal and subjective and apply to me, some will I suppose find it to be true for them others less so. I found my interest in this YA series picking back up somewhat in the last couple of books (aside from my annoyance at the blatant cliffhanger with which the book before this ended).

I found my interest in this YA series picking back up somewhat in the last couple of books (aside from my annoyance at the blatant cliffhanger with which the book before this ended). Let my say something here, and please bear with me....in other words I'm not trying to sound in any way pompous. I had a couple of complaints with this book and at least one may be explained by the fact that I have read so many books. There were times when I was going "okay, we all know what's coming next...just get on with your cliche and move the story along!" But I'm not really sure that everyone thinks that...so whether the books plot and the story's situations are a bit (as I said) cliched, is something to decide for yourself. Often I saw plot devices I recognized going in and knew the next events almost as if I'd already read them. I think each reader may need to think about this individually...it's a YA book. The second problem I had? In at least 3 places I "felt" as if certain events and confrontations drug out far too long. It was as if the author had planned out something and wanted to use every bit of work and every idea he'd had about it. I was so ready at times for this confrontation or that combat to be over. at one point I intended to rate the book 3 stars, then 4 stars, then 3 stars again. I've settled on 4 stars as I find this, on the whole an enjoyable read and a well written book. I like it....over all.

This is the culmination of everything that was started in the last book. The character threats and plot lines are all wrapped up more or less nicely. Yay! No cliffhanger this time! Some random comments. Shadow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m an emotional mess and that was sad even if it was also really sweet. Did Horace just actually lie? Halt really must have rubbed off on him! Good for you! xD Oh … romance! In all fairness, that one … I didn’t really feel. I think the author is a lot better at writing humor and action than emotional development … but then again, I’m a woman and the MC is a man … maybe men just don’t think about love as much as women … what do I know? Anyway, this is still a quick and fun series and I have the next four books waiting for me at home (yay for libraries!)

    this one just didn't do it for me, I thought it was really disappointing after the first 5!! still good.... But just not as exciting as the previous books. hopefully the next one is better.

    The Siege of Macindaw was much better than The Sorcerer in the North. I was glad to have Horace back - his and Will's relationship (and banter!) is becoming one of my favourite part of the series. I liked seeing them work together without Halt or Crowley or any of the other mentors. And getting some Skandians back on the scene was fantastic. They always supply some comic relief and epic fight sequences. Overall, a great sequel. I look forward to getting some answers in Erak's Ransom.

    The story was very well built up and I loved how Will and Horace managed to get back the castle by keeping a cool head and a very creative strategy!

    Also not my favorite of the series. Once again, Halt is only in it very briefly, and Tug is barely mentioned.

Will in needing of an army and does which he finds the skandians and offers them gold and revenge for john buttle who killed skandians while escaping and with extra luck he finds Horace who is ready to fight. But things don't go so steadily there outnumbered and don't have the plan to over throw the castle while back in the castle alyss is there waiting for Will to message her but gets something better and gets a stone that makes her resist the blue stone that Keren the traitor and when keren makes her talk she resisted and hears something that a army is coming and tells Will by secret message and then Will and Horace make a plan to capture the leader to make him tell them answers and they barely do but get information but not enough. They plan now to attack the castle and succeed while attacking Will goes to save Alyss but while there keren already had her and puts her into a transfer and the stone is no use and gets controlled and keren says kill him. But Will says he loves her and somehow she gets back to normal with the power of love. While back in the battle field Trobar one of Malcolm's best servants sees John buttle who hurt one of Will's dogs shadow and gets revenge but fails but luckily Horace was there and stops John buttle and kills him. Alyss who gets back to normal throws Keren acid that Will gave her to escape and melts him and dies. Everything is back to normal and everyone gets back to what there doing but before leaving Will leaves his only dog to trobar who fell in love with the dog and trobar promised if she has puppy's he wants one and Will after saving Alyss returns home to his cabin and feels alone but hes not done yet and goes after Alyss again and feels happy. This story is a person vs person because keren holds alyss hostage and Will must get her back in his arms. i Was surprised when trobar wanted to challenge John buttle from what i can tell he's a stone hard killer and can kill anyone that is in front of him. I was moved when Will said" Alyss i love you" which to me was like really but still pretty cool that he confessed his feelings to her. I was angry when he left Will's dog shadow to trobar " ill leave her to you and take care of her but if she has any puppy"s can i have one" which it was OK when he said if she has dogs can i have one.I thought the ending og this book was amazing how he wanted to leave his post just to see alyss and how he felt happy for once in a long time. i give this book five out five because for once its makes me happy to read a book. If you love adventure and action you must and i mean you must read this book. There's more to this story and there's more to come.

    This book was so great! I loved the humor in it. The ingenious ideas. The romance that finally starts to go somewhere a little bit. I loved the plot. The characters both old and new. And all of it. It’s just a great book. One of my all time favorites in the series.

    I really loved this book! It's so cool to see Will on his own now, though I do miss Halt a lot :(. I kinda wish there had been more of him in the book, but I guess Will would never grow up then. *sigh*

He even had me feeling sorry for Keren at one point! The book was probably on track for a 5-star rating, but then I reined it in because I felt like there were some major holes in the action. When Will and Horace are hiding for hours under the upside-down cart, it just made no sense to me that the castle defenders wouldn't just walk out and physically inspect the cart after it's abandoned. Why wouldn't Keren order some men to investigate the cart, to see if there might be any hint of what kind of siege they might be planning? And when he orders the cart burned, the flaming arrows fail, so they just give up!? How lazy can you be! Why not walk down to investigate why the cart isn't burning, and then break it apart for firewood or something!? Then there was the climactic scene when Alyss was on the verge of killing Will. Of course Will wouldn't harm Alyss, but surely Alyss isn't so skilled with a sword that Will wouldn't be able to evade or restrain Alyss, right? He's one of the best-trained Ranger's after all, and managed to avoid being killed by the Scotti general in hand-to-hand combat! I think the implication is that Keren could easily have picked up the sword and finished the job, or held Will down while Alyss struck the fatal blow. But in a book where nothing goes unsaid, and battle scenes are described in great detail, it seemed like the logistics of this scene could have been fleshed out some more. Anyway, I loved the ending, and left the book with lots of positive feelings. As usual, a few mild swears ("damn" and "hell") thrown around. My third-grader who is reading the series is always especially entertained when he comes across a swear word!

    I will make this 'review' for this and the previous book, as they cannot be separated in any way. Story wise, ofcourse. Page wise, they obviously have been. There are a few major complaints I have about this 5 year time skip. I generally love time skips. It moves a story forward, characters can develop in more drastic ways, a lot of things can change, and the need to adapt to the new setting is generally very enjoyable. But, this one annoyed me.

Will, as such, didn't change. One tiny bit. His skills themselves, as far as we are introduced of and told about, are the same. Awesome, but.. 5 years should show more. At least in a book of fiction? haha.. Then, there are the few new elements to the story. What I find unacceptable with them, is the fact that they exist so very conveniently. Ofcourse, that is how stories are usually told, but what bugs me is that things have only been introduced in the beginning of this book, and then depended on in a few chapters. That is weak. I expect more ingenuity. Also, the general convenience of it all.. So single minded and simple, like there is no other possibility or way or option. It annoys me. Characters behave on a predetermined pattern. Not always,but often. It is annoying! That tower climb for instance. The reason for it was a gamble. All of it. So many undetermined factors for it to be necessary, but there is no doubt whatsoever in its process! DUDE! Weak! And I could give plenty more examples. I do hope John has learned from these two books and did better in the next, or I might rethink if I want to read more or not, although I find myself enjoying the read most of the time. But. Skandians still make me happy! Hooray for them!

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.

    4.5 stars. Really love when Will and Horace get to work together. Also, the emotions are awesome-- like someone will snap at the other or say something out of jealousy and then apologize, recognizing that they messed up and shouldn't have done it AND then admit why, for the most part. It is nice to see guys in fiction showing emotions and taking responsibility for what they say, even in anger.

    This an excellent series. I love the characters, especially how they have both good and bad aspects. Flanagan was very clever in how he incorporated passages to remind me of what happened in the previous book without being overt or repetitious. Hypnotism doesn't happen the way it was described. But, since this is a different world, perhaps it does in that world. :D

    This was a really good book, and I enjoyed until the very last page. It was full of twists and turns, and surprises. It also had a lot of emotion which helped you connect with the main character. Also it had action pretty much throughout the book, and it doesn't get boring. I would recommend this series to anyone who liked the Harry Potter, and the Percy Jackson series.

    I am slowing down with this series and toying with the idea of handing them all off to my niblings without finishing the rest. The middle school boys I taught this year were all over the books in this series, but while I love training-the-hero stories and especially fantasy without magic, I find myself wanting something a little more grown-up.

    Wow, so after a few months, I finally chose to get back to this series again; figured I should finish the book since I was interrupted by the book's due date, hence why I couldn't complete it the first time. But now, I finished! Yay for me~ *small claps* Let's begin! Story: The Siege of Macindaw begins where the previous installment of the series left off: Will and his friends find a way to take back Castle Macindaw and save Alyss. That's it. That's the summary and the main point of this book XD Si Wow, so after a few months, I finally chose to get back to this series again; figured I should finish the book since I was interrupted by the book's due date, hence why I couldn't complete it the first time. But now, I finished! Yay for me~ *small claps* Let's begin! Story: The Siege of Macindaw begins where the previous installment of the series left off: Will and his friends find a way to take back Castle Macindaw and save Alyss. That's it. That's the summary and the main point of this book XD Simple goal, but the journey was very amusing and entertaining~ Will and Horace continue on bickering and being dorks in normal life, which I found highly amusing, and continue being badasses in the battlefield. HECK YEA! KICK THEIR BUTTS! Put your enemies/doubters to shame! It was also nice seeing more of Will and how much he has grown since his apprentice days. His moments with Halt, too :') Brings such nostalgic feelings... Characters: Recurring characters from the previous books. Let's start wiiiith Alyss! Alyss is a courier for the Kingdom of Araluen and is the love interest for Will. From the little screen time (not really "screen time", but what else am I supposed to call it?) she had, I couldn't really form a bond with her, but I do like her! She's strong-willed, brave, and intelligent, but also polite and kind. I wish her personality and character would have been explored more, but I guess we'll see more of her in the next series. Horace is back! Yes, the loyal brawn of the team is back! And more of his dorkiness and cool, as well. Having Horace in this installment brings such life into the book; he's a comic character while also being the one who calls the shots (in the battlefield when Will's not there). He also brings life to Will. Without Horace, Will would have had trouble taking back Macindaw, and might have not been so lively (closest term I can call to a Ranger who is not supposed to show so many ranges of emotion). Horace brings the sense of childhood with him, even though none of them are children anymore. I hope this won't be the last we see of Horace. And lastly for our main protagonists, Will. Will, as said before, has grown so much from when he was an apprentice. Yes, he still hesitates here and there, and sometimes forces himself to be more "adult" than he is because Rangers are supposed to be the planners. His devotion for his comrades and his friends are still there; he's still the brave and loyal Ranger from back then, and it's nice to see that that aspect of him hasn't changed. What has changed though is how he views his love life. Like, when he got back from Skandia after fighting a war there, he does not choose Evanlyn and immediately feels a void because she's not there. When Will first moved into his new fief, he meets the innkeeper's daughter and takes a fancy to her. But as he is, he apparently already has a "relationship" with Alyss, who comforted him and gave him attention after he got back from Skandia. But apparently, they weren't even dating at all, but they're already kissing!? Like... what? Will. Will, Will, Will... Are you that deprived of love or so full of hormones that you feel empty because you have no woman companion with you? Are you that sick of all the men around you? (view spoiler)[When he confessed to Alyss near the end, I just found it so...lacking. I felt like his feelings weren't there at all. Yes, he spent all his energy trying to find a way to save Alyss and risked his, and many men's, lives to save her and liberate Macindaw from the traitors, but after seeing that maybe he just likes her because he wanted a woman companion, it feels blah. (hide spoiler)] Aside from my minor rant, I love all the supporting characters! Malcolm is up there with my Best Grandpa Award (Merlin from The Last Ever After won the 1st Best Grandpa Award) because he's hilarious and amazing. He jokes around with the other characters and also is capable of so many things, like illusions and healing. My favorite character, Halt, did not appear much, but when he did... *sheds tear* I hope he has a bigger role in the future books. The main antagonist of this arc was not bad at all. Keren had ambition, he had feelings, and was polite and kind (sometimes). Compared to the previous antagonists, Keren felt like a real person who did these bad things because he had a goal to accomplish. The previous antagonists were just war-leaders who wanted to take over another country. Writing Style and Grammar: What Flanagan really excels at in this series is that way he describes his fight scenes. Every detail, every word is so important. It makes it feel more real. And all with a sense of "cool", or as I like to call it, shounen feels -- because the "HECK YEA!" feeling I get from reading this series is the same whenever I watch shounen anime. "[Buttle] lunged at Horace's body, and the warrior was forced to revert to his double-handed grip on the shield as Buttle drove forward, lunging and cutting, looking for an opening in Horace's defense." "He staggered back desperately under Horace's lightning-fast and constant varying attack, never knowing where the next strike was going to be aimed, never knowing from which direction it might come. Horace's sword was a glittering wheel of light in the flare of the torches, a nonstop onslaught that left Buttle no time to plan his own counterattack, and barely time to defend himself." Like, wow. Such graceful writing for a fight scene! The transition in and out of the fight scenes are so fluid, too! It's not jarring our out of place; it's perfect. What I also like about Flanagan's writing is that he slightly switches the POV of the characters so that we know what one is thinking/doing as another scene is happening; it makes me feel caught up to everything and actually know what is happening to everyone, even to the minor characters. Overall Enjoyment: Sooooo did I enjoy the book? Somewhat... It was nice to see all the character interactions and the battle scenes with their HECK YEA moments and the wonderful writing, but other than that, if the book didn't have any of those, then the whole installment would just be about taking back a castle. I didn't find a gem in this book -- and by gem, I mean something that makes me treasure it. I did like a lot of things that happened in this book, but overall, this book was just blah... Final Verdict: And so, with all those above taken into account, the 6th book of the Ranger's Apprentice series gets 3 out of 5 Rangers. *trumpet fanfare* Hope the future books will be more interesting. Wonder what will happen to our heroes since the next book will most likely start a new arc.

    As a continuation of the story from the previous book, I don't think it really helped that I couldn't remember much about the Sorcerer of the North. I couldn't recognize a lot of names, and I barely remember the basic plot. It also didn't help that I rushed to finish the second half of the book, because I didn't have power at home and was losing light lol. Even excluding that, I wasn't as much of a fan of this one as the previous, I had loved just seeing Will be in his quiet fief, but this book As a continuation of the story from the previous book, I don't think it really helped that I couldn't remember much about the Sorcerer of the North. I couldn't recognize a lot of names, and I barely remember the basic plot. It also didn't help that I rushed to finish the second half of the book, because I didn't have power at home and was losing light lol. Even excluding that, I wasn't as much of a fan of this one as the previous, I had loved just seeing Will be in his quiet fief, but this book focuses (once again) more on planning for a war/attack, and I was just bored. As I've mentioned, the books that focus more on war don't strike a fancy with me, but I did like the Will and Alyss reunion. Of course, the two of them are such a mess, but since it's such a background part of the plot, it's endearing. All in all, just too many war/battle/planning for a war/battle aspects. 2.5, but knocking it down to a 2 because I've just rated two books as 5 stars and my inner book critic is wounded.
