Publisher's Summary

Will is at the annual Ranger Gathering but Halt is investigating mysterious happenings in the west. When he does finally return, it’s with bad news: Hibernia is in turmoil. A false religious cult calling themselves the Outsiders are sowing confusion and sedition, and five of the six Hibernian kingdoms have been undermined. Now the sixth, Clonmel, is in danger. Halt, Will and Horace set out to restore order. Can the secrets of Halt’s past help them in their mission?

Twinning

I don't like to be patient when reading/listening to an entire series of books. When I finish one book, and don't hesitate to get onto the next in the series, I know it's worth my time. The Kings of Clonmel is a great insight into Halt's unspoken past and John Flanagan's Ranger's Apprentice series has, so far, caused me no hesitation. It also helps when you have a rich voice like William Zappa's to guide your listeners through an artful display of characters and storytelling. Thank you, John Flanagan, for another great book and 10, or so, hours of much enjoyed listening/reading.

Total Fan of Flanagan and Zappa

If you could sum up The Kings of Clonmel in three words, what would they be?

Exciting, fast, mysterious

What did you like best about this story?

The story moves along at a gallop. The characters are awesome and the plot believable. I love the standard of excellence from Will and the dry humour of Halt. Horace is an awesome dude with his natural abilities at swordmanship and the 'talking horses' ... What more does a good read and listen need?

Have you listened to any of William Zappa’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Zappa is the consumate story teller. His character voices are consistent and just how I imagined them in my own head when I read the books.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Halt is a k...! Can't spoil a great story by telling. I was scared and repulsed and satisfied with the justice. If it was as fair as this in real life it would be good.

Any additional comments?

The series of stories is always moving forward. The surprises are always good. Justice and fairness rule. The animals are very special creatures.
Flanagan and Zappa ROCK!
