9+: Rangers Apprentice 3 : The Icebound Land - John Flanagan

Release Date: 07/02/08


Will, trust in your friends,we will not let you down.

You have been kidnapped by a fearsome wolfship captain, and are trapped on a ship headed to the icebound land of Skandia.

Your future looks dark, as you face a life of backbreaking slavery. But you must be strong. Remember your training, and know that your friends will do anything to rescue you, even if they have to defy the King.


Following on from the events of the previous title this book takes the reader into the lands of Skandia where Will and Evanlyn struggle to survive under the yolk of the warriors who captured them in the previous novel. It’s a title that deals with friendship, of honour and of course courage whilst also delving into darker area’s due to some of the events within being quite harrowing.

It is a story that adds more layers to the characters allowing them to form greater bonds and alliances as well as allowing the reader to get the adventure that they craved from the others in the series. Add to this the authors great sense of pace and it’s a series that I really can’t put down. The only thing I would say about this is that I feel that the series has to be read in order otherwise the reader will have some of the previous books spoilt when they allude to previous events within.
