Format: Hardcover
THE SIEGE OF MACINDAW, the sixth installment in John Flanagan's best-selling RANGER'S APPRENTICE series, picks up right where THE SORCERER OF THE NORTH left off, with Alyss imprisoned in Macindaw castle at the mercy of Keren the usurper.

Will is soon united with enemy-turned-best-friend Horace, deep in Malcolm the Healer's mysterious forest. Much as it pains the two to be so close to Macindaw and yet so helpless, the two know that they do not stand a chance against Keren and his soldiers. Worst of all, Will has no idea what the traitor Keren might be up to.

The unexpected arrival of a small Skandian force, led by Gundar Hardstriker, is the ultimate blessing. While the Skandians find themselves stranded in Araluen quite by accident, Will greets them heartily and quickly turns them into his own small army, led by none other than Horace, the Oakleaf Knight.

With intelligence covertly provided by Alyss, Will and Horace learn of Keren's plans to turn Macindaw over to the Scotti tribes of Picta. All the odds are against them, but Will and Horace are not about to give up. The ranger and warrior complement each other perfectly, and the two hope that Will's agility and wit paired with Horace's strength and fighting experience will be enough to overcome Keren's forces and the fast-approaching Scotti army. Trying to take Macindaw with only thirty men is a daunting task, a feat never before achieved in Araluen history.

In other words, the perfect challenge.

It is easy to see why RANGER'S APPRENTICE has such a following with the preteen crowd. THE SIEGE OF MACINDAW is a fantasy adventure with strong characters and a fast-paced plot. Flanagan's characters have heart and his heroes are almost too virtuous to be true.

By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 18 Mar. 2010
Format: Hardcover
When we last saw Will Treaty, he was in a seemingly hopeless situation -- the knight Keren and his treacherous sidekick Buttle had taken over MacIndaw Castle, the heir has been chased off, and Alyss was a prisoner.

"The Siege of Macindaw" picks up immediately after that, and thankfully John Flanagan steers the story off in a much warmer, more hopeful direction. While the middle part of the sixth Ranger's Apprentice book is on the slow side, the gentle humor, elaborate strategies and action-packed climax keep it intricate and interesting.

Will is delighted when he hears news of a young warrior with a free-for-hire shield in the area -- it's Horace, meaning that he now has a somewhat better chance of victory. As a brigade of Scotti warriors approach, meaning that a chunk of Araluen will be lost, Will also acquires other allies: Malcolm the "sorcerer" and his followers, and a band of stranded Skandians who are all too happy to be hired.

So Will and his allies set out to capture the Scotti warriors, and somehow must find out what their battle plans are. But Malcolm's illusions and deceptions won't be enough to stop the soldiers of Macindaw -- it will take plenty of strategy and combat to infiltrate the castle. And when Will finally finds Keren, he will find someone dear to him suddenly turned against him.

"The Siege of Macindaw" is a rather slow-moving book at times -- the entire middle section is a stretch of careful strategic planning, with the occasional spurt of bloody, knife-swiping action. Fortunately, it's also very intricate and well-mapped out, and it's become clear once and for all that Will is no longer just an apprentice -- he and Horace are a strong, confident Ranger and warrior.

I have enjoyed the Ranger's Apprentice books very much as they have well thought plots and are good for any age to be gripped by. There are funny parts and there are parts that bring a tear or two to the eye, however, these books are a must read.

Another superb episode in the continuing story of The Rangers Apprentice. Well constructed, full of action and excitement.

IT is a pity that this book and the previous one were not combined in one book, they are one story. I am sure that children would prefer it, I know that I would.

Format: Paperback
The sixth member of the Ranger’s Apprentice series (but the seventh in strict reading order) is a direct follow on come sequel to book five. And while SORCERER IN THE NORTH was a little slow to get started, it finished with a bang AND a cliffhanger to make sure you rushed out to purchase the sequel straight away. And what a sequel it is. The fun and adventure starts off right away, with easily the best opening chapter of the series so far. In fact, as I approached the conclusion to chapter one, it felt like I was watching a big budget Hollywood blockbuster instead of reading a fantastic member of a YA fantasy series.

The quality just keeps on rolling in. New friends are made, old friends join the ’party’ (well, I should say its a siege. But its going to be one heck of a siege by the end!!!) and it really is non-stop action all the way. Little titbits of information that the reader (and Will) were forced to absorb early on in the series (apprenticeship) are cleverly woven into the story by the author and become an integral part of the book’s plot. And what’s *really* interesting is the way that some of the book’s characters utilise these in a more efficient manner than others. But that’s just life, I guess...

The writing style hasn’t changed - but that is a very good thing. Humour is still there, when appropriate, of course, but at this stage of the story’s plot terror, tension, and indecision have snagged the major roles and they are not going to let go. The book’s principal new bad guy - John Buttle - is a really excellent addition to the cast, even if he is a little on the cowardly side when it comes to eye balling other characters he has not yet bullied into submission.
