The Icebound Land John Flanagan

Apprentice to one and Hero to all

Summary

Captured after the fierce battle with Lord Morgarath, Will and Evanlyn are bound for Skandia as captives aboard a fearsome Wolfship. Halt has sworn to rescue Will, and he will do anything to keep his promise even to defy his King. Banished from the Rangers he has served so loyally, Halt is joined by Will's friend Horace as he travels toward Skandia. On their way, they are challenged constantly by freelance knights, but Horace knows a thing or two about combat. Soon he begins to attract the attention of knights and warlords for miles around with his uncanny skill. With all this, will Halt be in time to rescue Will from a terrible life of slavery?


1. I chose this book because it was in a series called the Ranger's Apprentice.

2. Any one who likes fantasy and The Lord of the Rings collection. From 12-18 years of age group.

3. This a great read because it is fast paced and it has a good mix of fantasy and action.

The Brotherband Chronicles Book 1: The Outcasts




They are outcasts. Hal, Stig, and the others - they are the boys the others want no part of. Skandians, as any reader of Ranger's Apprentice could tell you, are known for their size and strength. Not these boys. Yet that doesn't mean they don't have skills. And courage - which they will need every ounce of to do battle at sea against the other bands, the Wolves and the Sharks, in the ultimate race. The icy waters make for a treacherous playing field . . . especially when not everyone thinks of it as playing.
