Book Review - Ranger's Apprentice #12 Royal Ranger - John Flanagan

The Royal Ranger (Ranger's Apprentice, #12)The Royal Ranger by John Flanagan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have loved this series of books since they started. John Flanagan writes fantastic tales and you really get to know the characters well. We have watched Will Treaty grow up and become the legendary figure he is and now we get to the end of the series. It will be sad now we won't be reading anymore Will books, but John has left it open for a a new character to make an appearance, which I hope the author does indeed write.

Will Treaty is in mourning after a very horrific tragedy and his friends are worried for him, so they assign him an apprentice he can't refuse in hope of bring him out of his darkness. Well written, emotive and very funny in parts.

If you haven't tried this series then I highly suggest you do so!

Book Review - Battle Magic - Tamora Pierce

Battle MagicBattle Magic by Tamora Pierce

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

We get to see a different side to Rosethorn, Briar and Evvy. Their travels take them to the far side of the world and to the famed gardens of the Emperor, where they are at first treated with regard. After seeing things that make the group want to get out of the summer palace, they are then faced with the dilemma of helping Rosethorn fulfill her vows to the Living Circle or getting to safety when the Emperor decides to invade a neighbouring country where all religions are based in.

The only thing I was dissapointed in was the battle scenes. In previous books, Briar is haunted and changed about what happens in this book, but the battle scenes weren't very dteailed. I can understand Evvy's point of view, but it seemed to me to be a little glossed over. Apart from that, I really loved reading from Rosethorn's point of view and getting back to the world of the Winding Circle.

Very well written and I loved the characters. It is a must read!
