What does it mean to earn the Silver Oakleaf? So few men have done so. For Will, a mere boy, that symbol of honor has long felt out of reach. Now, in the wake of Araluen?s uneasy truce with the raiding Skandians comes word that the Skandian leader has been captured by a dangerous desert tribe. The Rangers are sent to free him. But the desert is like nothing these warriors have seen before. Strangers in a strange land, they are brutalized by sandstorms, beaten by the unrelenting heat, tricked by one tribe that plays by its own rules, and surprisingly befriended by another. Like a desert mirage, nothing is as it seems. Yet one thing is constant: the bravery of the Rangers. In this red-hot adventure, winner of the Australian Book of the Year Award for Older Children, John Flanagan raises the stakes on the series that has already sold millions of copies worldwide.

Why, why WHY would an author, who has written 6 books in chronological order, do this to their readers?!?The story itself was good, and I might have really enjoyed it if I had read it after book 4, but I had to downgrade this book to 3 stars because the story's time jump was frustrating and confusin...
This was great! I was totally surprised with the beginning! Halt gets married! WOW! THEN Will looses Tug! WHAT!? That was SO SAD! It almost made me cry! I do wish that I had been able to read this book, then the 5th and the 6th. This book covers the time period between books 4 and 5, I think it woul...
I love this series! Although this is the 7th book in the series, it is only the 3rd one I've been able to complete. I listen to these with my 11 year old son and once he gets hooked he brings the book with him everywhere and finishes it without me. There were parts of this book when I was tempted...
