9780142410752: The Icebound Land (Ranger's Apprentice)

Will and Evanlyn are bound for Skandia as the captives of the fearsome Skandian wolfship captain, Erak. Halt has sworn to rescue Will, and he will do anything to keep his promise - even defy his King. Expelled from the Rangers, Halt is joined by Horace as he travels through Gallica towards Skandia. On their way, they are constantly challenged by freelance knights - otherwise known as thieving thugs. Horace knows a thing or two about combat, though, and he soon begins to attract the attention of knights and warlords for miles around with his uncanny skill. But will they be in time to rescue Will from a life of slavery?

Product Description:

The Icebound Land is the third thrilling book in John Flanagan's Ranger's Apprentice series - over seven million sold worldwide.

Will, trust in your friends, we will not let you down.

You have been kidnapped by a fearsome wolfship captain, and are trapped on a ship headed to the icebound land of Skandia.

Your future looks dark, as you face a life of backbreaking slavery. But you must be strong. Remember your training, and know that your friends will do anything to rescue you, even if they have to defy the King.

Review:

"This thrilling series has taken off around the world with boys and girls 11 and up crying out for more." (ABA Kids' Reading Guide 2005-2006)

"Flanagan's deft character portrayals and well-paced story will engage readers, and the ending will leave them clamoring for the next volume." (Booklist)

"Laced with humour, credible chracters and the poinancy of slavery and drug addiction, The Icebound Land is a gripping tale." (The School Librarian)

"... dazzling in its detail, children will be unable to put this down." (The Liverpool Echo)

"The third book in the Ranger's Apprentice series features a dual story, switching between the ranger's apprentice, Will, accompanied by princess Evanlyn, and the ranger, Halt, accompanied by Will's friend Horace, a young knight-in-training. After an unsuccessful attempt to escape from the ship where they are captives, Will and Evanlyn are taken to Skandia and put to work as slaves. Meanwhile, Halt and Horace ride to the rescue, or at least toward the rescue, only to be detained by a series of petty thieves and a nefarious knight. Although both strands of narrative feature journeys, each provides its own challenges for the characters and pleasures for readers. The Halt/Horace strand combines elements of knightly combat with a certain dry wit, and the Will/Evanlyn strand offers a good adventure story with a surprising twist. Throughout the novel, Flanagan's deft character portrayals and well-paced story will engage readers, and the ending will leave them clamouring for the next volume." (Booklist)
