About the Author

John Flanagan grew up in Sydney, Australia hoping to be a writer. It wasn’t until he wrote a highly uncomplimentary poem about a senior executive at the agency he worked, however, that his talent was revealed. It turned out one of the company directors agreed with John’s assessment of the executive, and happily agreed to train John in copywriting.

After writing advertising copy for the next two decades, John teamed with an old friend to develop a television sitcom, Hey Dad!, which went on to air for eight years.

John began writing Ranger’s Apprentice for his son, Michael, ten years ago, and is still hard at work on the series. He currently lives in the suburb of Manly, Australia, with his wife. In addition to their son, they have two grown daughters and four grandsons.

This is one of the best books in the Ranger Apprentice series. I read it slowly just so I could savor the story. I have read the series from the beginning. I loved the first 4 books, but I was a little disappointed when Will was no longer Halt's apprentice. The books were just not as entertaining. In fact without Halt, Will, and Horace together they lacked the spark of the others in the series. I enjoyed Erak's Ransom because Halt was back. However, The Kings of Clonmel far surpassed it. First of all only two women characters made brief appearances, the Lady Pauline, Halt's wife and Alyss, Will's love interest. Maybe women characters aren't Flanagan's strongest suit. This book is about Halt, Horace, and Will. That fact alone made the story outstanding for me. Halt learns about a religious cult whose leader is more interested in money than helping people. The Outsiders show up in towns and offer protection against bandits. If the people follow the path of the cult's leader, Tennyson, their families are safe. If they do not, the bandits will attack and destroy them. Tennyson and his cult move into the kingdom of Hibernia which is close to Araluen. That attracks Halt's interest immediately. There is a twist about how Will joins him on this assignment and how Horace beomes involved in the plot. The twist is a delightful and clever way to keep Flanagan's three best characters in books to follow in the series. Halt's past comes back to haunt him. It is a past he would rather forget about, but with the friendship and understanding of Will and Horace, he moves forward to accept its challenges. I cannot say any more about Halt's secret, but it is very entertaining. The thing that makes this book so good is the friendship among these three friends. They act so human which makes the book so delightful to read. They disagree, bicker, and tease each other relentlessly, but when it comes down to loyalty and protecting each other's lives, they are the best of friends. Friendship is the key element in the story. Halt is the plotter and thinker with years of experience, Horace the warrior who's not as young and naive as he use to be, and Will is growing more clever and confident in his skills as a ranger. The story flows quickly, the twists are delightful, the interaction of the characters is so entertaining, and the ending has a sort of sad twist. It is a good book and I thoroughly enjoyed every word. I can't wait for the book 9. I just hope Flanagan finishes it quickly.
