The Rangers series is a great collection of books. Aimed for the YA section, I am a thirty year old who has really enjoyed this fantasy series when I am wanting a break from all the violence and sex from the authors of adult series in this genre. The characters are defined and explored and grow throughout the ten novels. Book 11: the lost stories, is a collection of smaller stories that didn't have enough potential to make it as a stand-alone book. Some of the stories go back to previous books to explore a character's sub plot when the main story focus was on other characters. As a whole, this book is good. Not as good as a stand-alone novel of this series, but it does fill in some blanks and any fan of this series should get it. For those of you who are not fans, you will not miss anything by not reading this book.
