King Duncan and Princess Cassandra are trapped high in the south tower of Castle Araluen.
In the north, Sir Horace and Ranger Commandant Gilan are besieged in an old hill fort, as they wait for the Red Fox Clan's next attack.
Ranger's apprentice Maddie must find the Heron brotherband and convince them to join her, so she can give her father the help he needs to break out from the hill fort and ride to confront the traitor.
Will they reach Castle Araluen in time? And when the battles have been fought and the dust has settled, who will rule the Kingdom of Araluen?
THE ROYAL RANGER IS BACK AND THE STAKES ARE HIGHER THAN EVER IN THE WORLD OF RANGER'S APPRENTICE.
FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING RANGER'S APPRENTICE AND BROTHERBAND SERIES THAT HAVE SOLD A MASSIVE 15 MILLION COPIES WORLDWIDE.
Another good Ranger’s Apprentice story and was quite enjoyable. I’m not giving it a five because of a few small things: it was missing a bit of fun of the previous stories (following two groups being constantly sieged is a bit draining), it wasn’t stand alone or a new adventure (part 2 which continued a cliff hanger), there was no Will or Halt, and had a limited scope of locales (really, just the castle and the hill fort). However, the inclusion of the Brotherband characters was a plus and Maddy continues to be a great character.
