9+: Rangers Apprentice 8 : The Kings of Clonmel - John Flanagan

Release Date: 01/09/11


Will, sometimes the past is the key to your future.

The surrounding kingdoms have fallen prey to a religious cult who are spreading confusion and rebellion. The only Kingdom that is uncorrupted is Clonmel, and it is about to fall…

It is up to you, Halt and Horace to rid the land of this dangerous enemy and restore order once again. Could secrets from Halt’s past hold the key to your success?


This is the first part of a tale that takes two titles to conclude, as with the other books, the author has cleverly thought the overall arc through, the characters are continuing to grow into their roles and smarts are the order of the day backed up with tactics as well as the strength of Horace to help the characters through.

It’s a wonderful read and alongside giving the reader a real taste of another kingdom, we get to learn a bit about the past of the mysterious Halt that readers have been demanding for quite some time. Add to this some sneaky double dealing and a foe who is just as smart about turning situations to his own advantage and the reader will really enjoy a story of cat and mouse.
