A very good adventure book with plenty of exciting moments when the Rangers, Horace, Evanlyn, and the Skandians face off the Temujai. The apprentice Will continues to improve his skill and makes Halt proud. Through hardships, the Skandians and Araluens defeat the Temujai with hopes that they will never return. Ragnak dies and Erak is elected as the new Objeral.

good book but the battle could be more exiting

 ""A ranger wears the lives of two dozen men in his belt" -goes the old Araluen saying.

Is anyone else in LOVE with rangers yet? Because I am.

Humble but deadly. That is what they are. Smart, cunning, and patient when needed.

Absolutely LOVE that we get to see and understand more of what goes on in Halt's head. We learn some of his background that makes him such a Bad-A Ranger!

 "An unstrung bow is just something extra to carry. A strung bow is a weapon." -Halt

Flanagan has this wonderful thing called being realistic. In real life you're supposed to string and unstring your bow when in use and out of use. If you don't unstring the bow then it flexes too much and ruins the curve, and therefore the ability, of the bow.

Again, Evanlyn is insufferable. the entire book she cries about the fact that Will was embarrassed about having a forced addiction and now reunited with Halt he is back to what he loves... training and being a Ranger.

News Flash: YOU AREN'T THAT IMPORTANT. You chose to be buddy buddy with Horce. You can't have the knight and the ranger sweet heart... get over yourself. What I truly couldn't stand about her is she tried to change what Will is, which is a ranger, and then was all stuck up and pissy about that fact that he chose to be a RANGER over her. Girl get off your freaking high horse.

This book was turn after turn, couldn't put the book down, had to know what was going to happen next. Although, I wish there was more of Gilan in this book but I'm hoping that book 5 will feed my need for him!

The Battle of Skandia is a great book that really cleared up some things from past books, as well as including the battle with the Temuji, and Halt/Horace teamwork.

Intense action, a twisting plot, and never-ending epicness. I don't think anyone could have described the Temujai vs. Skandians battle better than Flanagan. Overall, an outstanding fourth book of the 'Ranger's Apprentice' series.

Another great addition to the series with improvement in character development and a conclusion to the current story line. It is also one of the more emotional and action packed books of the series so far. A must read!

This is my favorite in the whole series. John Flanagan keeps writing books that are completely original and fantastic. I absolutely LOVE this series. Can't wait for The Tournament At Gorlan to come out!!!!

It really gets good when large hairy men fight large battles against invading Temujai.
