Still far from their homeland after escaping slavery in the icebound land of Skandia, Will and Evanlyn's plans to return to Araluen are spoiled when Evanlyn is taken captive by a Temujai warrior. Though still weakened by the warmweed's toxic effects, Will employs his Ranger training to locate his friend, but an enemy scouting party has him fatally outnumbered. Will is certain death is close at hand, until Halt and Horace make a daring, last-minute rescue. The reunion is cut short, however, when Halt makes a horrifying discovery: Skandia's borders have been breached by the entire Temujai army. And Araluen is next in their sights. If two kingdoms are to be saved, an unlikely union must be made. Will it hold long enough to vanquish a ruthless new enemy? Or will past tensions spell doom for all? The battles and drama are nonstop in Book Four of this hugely popular epic.

The Battle for Skandia
(Rangers Apprentice #4)

By John Flanagan

After the winter that Will and Evanlyn escaped being slaves
for the Skandians, it is spring. Will and Evanlyn notice the thaw from inside
the hut they were in. One day, Evenlyn goes out hunting. On her way, a giant
arm grabs her and knocks her out. Then the strange figure takes her away. After
a while, Will goes out to search for her. Meanwhile, Halt, a ranger, and Wills
master, and Horace, Wills friend, are just getting in to. Then, they notice a
lot of dead Skanadians with arrows in them. They head farther into Skandia.
Finally, Will finds the camp of men holding Evanlyn hostage. Then, he notices a
man going after her with a knife, trying to kill her. Will pulls out his bow
and shoots the man in the arm. Him and five other men come running towards
Will. Just as Will knows it is the end, an arrow comes out of nowhere. Will
looks where it comes from and it is Halt and Horace. They defeat the men and
take one as a prisoner. They find out he is a Temujai, and that they are
preparing for war. Halt, Horace, Evanlyn, Will head for Hallasham, the capital
of Skandia. There they tell the Skanadians that the Temujai are going to attack
them. The Skanadians team up with them and prepare for war.

Will
they beat the Temujia? Will they not survive? Will Will, Halt, Evanlyn, and
Horace make it back to Arulean, their homeland, safely? Will Ragnack kill
Evanlyn because she is Princess Cassandra? Find out the answers by reading the book!

I thought that the author did an amazing job describing the characters and the
battle scenes. I could see the characters battling in my mind. Although I dont think the author did a good
job describing the setting. I thought will was on a mountain but he really was
on the ground next to a bunch of people.

Though before you read this book you
should read the fist 3. Overall, I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars!

The Battle for Skandia by John Flanagan
5 out of 5 stars

The Battle for Skandia Book Four in the Ranger's Apprentice Series by John Flanagan was an amazing new addition to the series.

The last thing you want to call Will and Evanlyn's predicament is an adventure, but how else would you describe it? When Evanlyn disappears, Will realizes something is amiss and looks for her. After following her capturer's trail, he arrives at their campsite in a very weakened state. Though Will's courage and bravery are strong, he knows that he by himself could never rescue her. But it turns out he isn't alone. In the nick of time Halt and Horace also reach the campsite following the same trail as Will did. After the initial joy of being together again , matters at hand trouble them. Why are the Temujai here? What is their purpose for coming this far north?

The easy to read and smooth flowing style of author John Flanagan, clearly shines in this book, and the whole Ranger's Apprentice Series.

The authors uncanny ability to judge which scenes should be included and explored in detail is totally stunning. His knowledgeable decisions do nothing but the utmost good for the book.

I would recommend this book to everyone of all ages, especially to Robin Hood and Stephen R. Lawhead fans.
