1.

It had been a long, hard three days.

Will had been on a tour of the villages surrounding Castle Redmont. It was something he did on a regular basis, keeping in touch with the villagers and their headmen, keeping track of the everyday goings-on. Sometimes, he had learned, little pieces of gossip, seemingly trivial at the time, could become useful in heading off future trouble and friction within the fief.

It was part of being a Ranger. Information, no matter how unimportant it might seem at first glance, was a Ranger’s lifeblood.

Now, late in the afternoon, as he rode wearily up to the cabin set among the trees, he was surprised to see lights in the windows and the silhouette of someone sitting on the small verandah.

Surprise turned to pleasure when he recognized Halt. These days Will’s mentor was an infrequent visitor to the cabin, spending most of his time in the rooms provided for him and Lady Pauline in the castle.

Will swung down from the saddle and stretched his tired muscles gratefully.

“Hullo,” he said. “What brings you here? I hope you’ve got the coffee on.”

“Coffee’s ready,” Halt replied. “Tend to your horse and then join me. I need to talk to you.” His voice sounded strained.

Curiosity piqued, Will led Tug to the stable behind the cabin, unharnessed him, rubbed him down and set out feed and fresh water. The little horse butted his shoulder gratefully. He patted Tug’s neck, then headed back to the cabin.

Halt was still on the verandah. He had set out two cups of hot coffee on a small side table and Will sat in one of the wood-andcanvas chairs and sipped gratefully at the refreshing brew. He felt the warmth of it flowing through his chilled, stiff muscles. Winter was coming on and the wind had been cold and cutting all day.

He gazed at Halt. The gray-bearded Ranger seemed strangely ill at ease. And despite his claim that he needed to talk to Will, once the usual greetings were out of the way, he seemed almost reluctant to begin the conversation.

“You had something to tell me?” Will prompted.

Halt shifted uncomfortably in his seat. Then, with an obvious effort, he plunged in.

“There’s something you should know,” he said. “Something I probably should have told you long ago. It’s just . . . the time never seemed right.”

Will’s curiosity grew. He had never seen Halt in such an uncertain mood. He waited, giving his mentor time to settle his thoughts.

“Pauline thinks it’s time I told you,” Halt said. “So does Arald. They’ve both known about it for some time. So maybe I should just . . . get on with it.”

“Is it something bad?” Will asked, and Halt looked directly at him for the first time in several minutes.

“I’m not sure,” he said. “You might think so.”

For a moment, Will wondered if he wanted to hear it, whatever it might be. Then, seeing the discomfort on Halt’s face, he realized that, good or bad, it was something that his teacher had to get off his chest. He gestured for Halt to continue.

Halt paused for a few more seconds, then he began.

“I suppose it starts after the final battle against Morgarath’s forces, at Hackham Heath. They’d been retreating for several days. Then they stopped and made a stand. We’d broken their main attack and we were forcing them back. But they were rallying on the right, where they’d found a weak point in our line . . .”

Revue de presse

"The last few years have seen the publication of many fantasies, but few have the appeal of this original story.”—Booklist, starred review, on The Ruins of Gorlan

Par EA Solinas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
John Flanagan spent ten books crafting the stories of the Rangers Will and Halt, young knight Horace, and their many friends and allies. And in "Ranger's Apprentice: The Lost Stories," he explores some of the stories hinted at but never really explored before -- stories that illuminate the characters' pasts, small-scale adventures, and a few romantic climaxes as well.

The story is framed by a little story that takes place in the present day. Archaeologist Giles McFarlane and his assistants are excavating the remains of Castle Redmont, when one of them finds the ruins of a Ranger's cabin -- and a parchment manuscript filled with long-lost tales.

Among the stories are tales of Will Treaty and Halt. Will must write a flowery speech while battling shipwreckers, track down his abducted dog Ebony, and struggles with the inevitable when Tug is badly wounded during a mission. Additionally, he must unravel a conspiracy of murder and treachery in the days leading up to Horace and Evanlyn's wedding -- with dire consequences if he fails.

Additionally, Gilan gets a couple of stories. First, a bunch of thieves take Jenny hostage on the very day that she's expecting Gilan for a romantic dinner (awww!). And during Will's captivity in Skandia, he investigates an equally malevolent ally of Morgarath's named Foldar (brother of File?) who is busy establishing a foothold in a corrupt barony.

And there are stories that illuminate the characters' pasts. "Death of a Hero" explores how Halt met Will's father twenty-ish years ago, and how both his parents died. And "The Hibernian" studies Halt's entry into the Ranger Corps and his first meeting with Crowley, during a dark period for the Rangers.

If the Ranger's Apprentice series was an elaborate mural, "The Lost Stories" is John Flanagan painting in the little details and missed spots. And these aren't just the stories Flanagan wanted to tell -- a number of them seem to be in response to requests from or points made by various fans, such as people wanting to know what Gilan was doing during Halt's exile.

And you can tell how much he loves these characters, from the primary characters to the minor ones like Jenny or Crowley -- even the animals are given stories that flesh them out further, and allow them moments to shine. The only flaw is a notable lack of Horace -- even Alyss gets more time than he does.

Flanagan's prose is lean, action-packed and full of fun cameos by beloved characters (Erak, Gilan, Shigeru, Crowley). He can flip effortlessly between gritty knife-swinging action, bittersweetness (the story about Tug), and comedy that seems to flow effortlessly ("For years, people will say, Remember that speech Will gave that nobody could understand?").

"Ranger's Apprentice: The Lost Stories" fills in some intriguing gaps in the Ranger's Apprentice universe, and caps off many of the characters' arcs. Bad place to start for newbies, but an excellent addition to the series.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another great Ranger's Approentice book 10 octobre 2011
Par Dadinator - Publié sur Amazon.com

The story behind this book are that these are stories that have been found while historians are exploring the ruins of Castle Redmont and its nearby village. The book is a collection of short stories that fills in some of the blanks that didn't fit into the original books. eg. Gilan hunting down Foldor who is mentioned as Halt is banished from Araluen).
The ton of the book is different; some parts are more sad/somber and others are just shortened adventure stories. I think some younger readers may be bothered by the thought of a time when Castle Redmont lies in ruins and they realize this world has moved on.
As a stand alone book, I still prefer the full stories to a collection of short stories. Still this is a very fun read and for fans of the series, I think you will love it. If you haven't read the entire series, there will be a name or two you may not recognize, but it won't be a big deal. I, for one, am not ready for this world to move on.

This book wrapped up all the missing bits in the series. I couldn't have been more happy. I actually cried at one part. If you've read the series and can fairly well remember the books, this is for you. I would write a longer review, but i would have nothing to say. The book was amazing, however, if you're expecting another long adventure with Will, this is not the right book, the series was over in book 10, this is just a closing book, and a marvelously written one at that.
