Will’s skills as a ranger are tested in The Siege of Macindaw, book 6 in the Ranger’s Apprentice series by John Flanagan.


In Keren’s Control

Everything is going wrong in Araluen. A foolish and regretful Sir Keren has taken over Castle Macindaw. He has invites more trouble to Araluen when he makes an alliance with the Scotti. Meanwhile, Alyss is trapped in his tower. Keren regularly forces her to undergo hypnosis using a mesmerizing blue stone. Alyss can’t fight it. She’s powerless against it. And once she is under the stone’s influence, she could reveal any number of secrets…if only Keren knows the right questions to ask.


Building an Army

Meanwhile, Will the Ranger is hiding out in the forest, strategizing and designing a plan to free Alyss. But he soon gets wind that the Scotti are on their way to Castle Macindaw. Will has no time to lose. He must form an army to rescue Alyss, stop the Scotti from their invasion and return Castle Macindaw to its rightful ruler. He and his best friend Horace form a 30-man motley crew of Scandians. His army may be small, but with enough planning, and a little sorcery, they may be able to overthrow Keren before it’s too late.


The Bottom Line

The Siege of Macindaw is book 6 in the exciting Ranger’s Apprentice series by John Flanagan. The story is so much more than strategizing and fierce battles. Flanagan adds strong friendships, a small love story and most importantly modern humor. You’ll laugh at the witty banter between Will and Horace. And best of all, the book leaves you satisfied, yet craving the next installment.
