Will and Evanlyn have been for nearly a year When Halt and Horace arrive to rescue their friends, they must join forces with their enemies in order to return home But enemies have a habit of becoming friends.I was glad that Will was back and mostly himself in this novel because I missed him for the majority of the previous installment And I loved his reunion with Halt Their father son relationship is beautiful and I love the bond that they have formed His friendship with Horace was tested slightly and strengthened This is really the first of the novels where there is a hint at future romance between any of the young characters Evanlyn is friends with both Horace and Will and they both obviously care for her a great deal It doesn t go too far, but it does introduce the possibility of relationships there One thing I really enjoyed was how much we were able to see Evanlyn s strength She didn t want to just sit on the sidelines and watch the men do all the dangerous work, she wanted to help And her help was vital It s nice to see girls be the heroes too, without taking away from the boys The two can exist together Another solid addition to this fun, adventurous series I m looking forward to continuing onward So I jumped right into this one after finishing the previous one, to see how the cliffhanger played out @Free Ebook ⚸ The Battle for Skandia ⚷ The international

history, where English typecast characters from Araluen help the battle axe toting Skandians Vikings repel an invasion of mongol type invaders from the Eastern Steppes the Temujai , light calvary archers led by a Khan type chieftain.It was written for teens, but I enjoyed it There is maybe too much time spent on battle scenes, but the tactics were interesting and the fight did not feel overwhelming Kudos to the author for creating credible not Mary Sue action scenes with the young princess, Evanlyn Cassandra.There is a good map and a fun app at the author s website The Battle for Skandia is the fourth book in the Ranger s Apprentice series.What can I say These books are just incredibly relaxing for me to read Flawed but endearing characters, easy but exciting plots I don t have to think and can just enjoy it.Though in this particularly there were some things I would have liked differently Most importantly I would have liked the book to deal with Will s trauma a bitHe was enslaved, abused and drugged in the last book I feel like he should have The Battle for Skandia is the fourth book in the Ranger s Apprentice series.What can I say These books are just incredibly relaxing for me to read Flawed but endearing characters, easy but exciting plots I don t have to think and can just enjoy it.Though in this particularly there were some things I would have liked differently Most importantly I would have liked the book to deal with Will s trauma a bitHe was enslaved, abused and drugged in the last book I feel like he should have some form of PTSD Instead it was just kind of dropped and hardly ever mentioned again That was a bit disappointing I also feel like the series could use a bitdirection at this point Not that it s not interesting but currently I m missing an ultimate goal What am I reading to Is this series going to follow Will s life for the rest of eternity until his death Just like some kind of road trip Not that I won t read this, but still A bit direction would be appreciated.Apart from that, I m still enjoying the series There are few books that manage such a level of consistency and that s a compliment, though it doesn t sound really like one Normally in a series there are some good books, some not so good ones, great characters, characters that piss you off the Ranger s Apprentice series has had nothing but a consistently engaging plotline, an incredible cast of loveable and a fascinating setting It hasn t gotten boring once.In this installment we get to know Erakwhich I loved Erak and Halt s dia There are few books

characters that piss you off the Ranger s Apprentice series has had nothing but a consistently engaging plotline, an incredible cast of loveable and a fascinating setting It hasn t gotten boring once.In this installment we get to know Erakwhich I loved Erak and Halt s dialogue was hilarious It was also fascinating to learnabout the Skandians While the battle was a little long winded, I think it was key It gave Evanlyn the chance to grow in her character After seeing everyone else doubt her abilities at times, she even doubted herself it was nice to see her grow in confidence and wow everyone with her hidden awesomeness I m intrigued about her and Horace s relationship and how it is going to progress over the rest of the series I have to admit that I missed Will a little bit though He still isn t back to his usual self for most of the book and he got a little weird towards the end Overall, this was fantastic just as I ve learnt to expect from John Flanagan I m excited for the next book Very enjoyable So much better than the previous story Good ending I LOVE this series but I still want to know what on earth went on between Halt and Lady Pauline Agh, this has been frustrating me since I read the pre series books What went on between them Also, I m really sad that Cassandra and Will view spoiler even through all that they went through together they couldn t continue to be friends I feel bad for poor Will At least Cassandra has Horace, but Will he s a Ranger I m guessing this is also something to do with why Halt and Lady Pauline I LOVE this series but I still want to know what on earth went on between Halt and Lady Pauline Agh, this has been frustrating me since I read the pre series books What went on between them Also, I m really sad that Cassandra and Will view spoiler even through all that they went through together they couldn t continue to be friends I feel bad for poor Will At least Cassandra has Horace, but Will he s a Ranger I m guessing this is also something to do with why Halt and Lady Pauline had a disagreement I don t know, but something hide spoiler Content Similar to the first books, this is totally fine for middle grade and other than the fatalities of war there s not really any content I m sorry Did you hear that noise No Well it was the sound of my heart exploding in sadness A sound that will never be heard again in all time At the end I decided who I shipped, and then my heart exploded in two Will Evelyn belong together And now I m extremely disappointed and scared to see if they will belong together With both of them stuck on either side of the fence Will being he is no longer her status Evelyn being Rangers always keep to themselves And me sitting here just wa I m sorry Did you hear that noise No Well it was the sound of my heart exploding in sadness A sound that will never be heard again in all time At the end I decided who I shipped, and then my heart exploded in two Will Evelyn belong together And now I m extremely disappointed and scared to see if they will belong together With both of them stuck on either side of the fence Will being he is no longer her status Evelyn being Rangers always keep to themselves And me sitting here just waiting for my heart to explode Then it did.Now I cannot give a good review, and probably will never be able to Just know that I have been silenced in the beautifully sad closure of this book I fear their lives will never be the same again Amazing I ve loved this series since Ruins of Gorlan the first book It s suspenseful, action packed, and fun to read It really makes you want to read I really love how mortal enemies can come together to save their world John Flanagan did a great job with this book and all his others Really, really good.
