    If you loved the series, you ll love The Lost Stories, I know I did. The Lost Stories are just a series of short stories that answer some of the questions left unanswered by the series Most are only two or three chapters long and can be finished off pretty quickly Personally, I normally skip these types of releases Most that I ve read in the past have feltlike money makers for the author than anything with real content for the reader.I really enjoyed the Ranger s Apprentice series tho

    This is yet another the eleventh in fact addition to a wonderful series of YA books I love them for their characterisation, for the rich world, for the fact that both men and women are heroes in this world, for the fact that it is set in apure older time with a clear distinction between good and evil and just because it s great entertainment as a series And like all great book series both the target audience of 12 16 year olds and adult readers can enjoy them I know this to be true be This is yet another the eleventh in fact addition to a wonderful series of YA books I love them for their characterisation, for the rich world, for the fact that both men and women are heroes in this world, for the fact that it is set in apure older time with a clear distinction between good and evil and just because it s great entertainment as a series And like all great book series both the target audience of 12 16 year olds and adult readers can enjoy them I know this to be true because my mother loves them just as much as I do.Obviously my world views are going to be different from other readers and so while I like the clarity of morality in these novels others may not Although I choose to believe that that indicatesabout a reader and their beliefs than about any novel itself Still I feel that while some may hate the apparently cliche nature of these books they should not be judged for that There are so many good things to enjoy such as rich writing for a YA novel the vocabulary used is quite excellent , the down to earth humour and verbal jousting between characters and the enjoyable plotting Only one thing really frustrates me across the series and that is John Flanagan s need to remind the reader later in the books about things he mentioned earlier in the same tale.This book is no different to the others in quality despite the fact that it is made up of short stories rather than full tales Yet each story is a brilliant gem of its own and for any fan of the series is well worth a read as a stand alone short story Yet putting them all together equated to a brilliant novel all in all.I for one cannot wait for the next John Flanagan book whether I m 18 or 19 at the time I read it Because these books are good stories on the whole and fully worth reading So go read this book and enjoy it as it is

    Firstly, just a warning, this review contains spoilers.Secondly, for the record, I would actually give this book 3.5 stars, which I rounded up to four.Don t get me wrong, I absolutely love this book it is really well written, and I incredibly enjoyed seeing all the characters again, and getting all my questions answered, and seeing the marriages between Cassandra and Horace, Will and Alyss, and seeing the continuing relationship between Gilan and Jenny But I give the book 3.5 stars for two re Firstly, just a warning, this review contains spoilers.Secondly, for the record, I would actually give this book 3.5 stars, which I rounded up to four.Don t get me wrong, I absolutely love this book it is really well written, and I incredibly enjoyed seeing all the characters again, and getting all my questions answered, and seeing the marriages between Cassandra and Horace, Will and Alyss, and seeing the continuing relationship between Gilan and Jenny But I give the book 3.5 stars for two reasons First The wedding dresses are all described as exactly the same For a girl like me, who is into that kind of dressing up stuff, it was incredibly disappointing.Second and most importantly Tug Poor Tug I absolutely could not stand what John Flanagan did to that little horse He s been our friend throughout the whole series, and then Mr Flanagan has to go and cripple him I understand that Tug had to make an exit from the series at some point, but to have it happen in such a way was unbelievably cruel And to add insult to injury, Tug s name is taken and given to the new horse Why did will need a horse almost exactly like the last one Even worse, Will, after getting this new horse who looks like young Tug and acts a bit like Tug, begins to act as if the original horse doesn t exist The new Tug didn t win the race in the Arridi Deserts, or ride with Will to get help for Halt when Halt was poisoned The new Tug even gets to go to Will s wedding as best horse I say again poor Tug the real Tug So, overall, a satisfying read with many answers to all our questions, but a cruel, sad and unnecessary ending to our relationship with the wonderful Tug

    I really liked this book, just not as much as I have liked the other ones The only reason for that is because someone dies that is important to the main character, but i don t wan t to spoil anything.

    8 10 A collection of relatively short stories, and they were all great I barely got bored with this book and there was a lot of humour in this one I loved reading in some different characters POV s, especially Gilan s haha, and loved reading about stuff that happened in between throughout the rest of the series And some of the beautiful things that happened in this book, so great I really liked this one Have reread each of the stories multiple times

  10. Dan Dan says:

    This would have gotten 4 stars, but the stories just were too uneven One or two I really enjoyed, and would have preferred to have had them expanded to a whole novel Others seemed to me to be nearly filler , even if they did flush out aspects of the over arching story.
