Publisher's Summary

The Royal Ranger is back, and the stakes are higher than ever in the world of Ranger's Apprentice! 

Castle Araluen is well protected against attackers - but what if the enemy is already inside? 

King Duncan and Princess Cassandra are trapped high in the south tower of Castle Araluen. In the north, Sir Horace and Ranger Commandant Gilan are besieged in an old hill fort as they wait for the Red Fox Clan's next attack. Ranger's apprentice Maddie must find the Heron brotherband and convince them to join her, so she can give her father the help he needs to break out from the hill fort and ride to confront the traitor.  

Will they reach Castle Araluen in time? And when the battles have been fought and the dust has settled, who will rule the Kingdom of Araluen?

Please bring back William Zappa

Please bring William Zappa back for Ranger's Apprentice! John Keating does a good job at Brotherband but not at Ranger's Apprentice!

This reader has spoilt the story

John Keating is bad ... very bad. His poor characterisations has Ranger Gillen sounding like the village idiot. He pronunciation of Evanlyn is nothing like the pronunciations in the original 12 stories. His ‘ particular/particularly’ are particularly bad. His histrionic style of reading jangles the nerves. Bad, bad, bad. I sincerely hope he does not do any more readings of Rangers’ Apprentice nor any Brotherband stories. He ruins them. Please, please, PLEASE, bring your original reader back. Please re-record these Royal Ranger stories again. I can not recommend these stories as audiobook productions. Plase give Keating ‘the flick’!

Another brilliant adventure

Absolutely loved this latest story
I’m almost 40 and don’t consider these kids stories at all, they’re brilliant and appeal to many ages
Made some long drives in the Western Australian desert much safer due to the entertainment factor :)
