John Flanagan grew up in Sydney, Australia hoping to be a writer. It wasn't until he wrote a highly uncomplimentary poem about a senior executive at the agency he worked, however, that his talent was revealed. It turned out one of the company directors agreed with John's assessment of the executive, and happily agreed to train John in copywriting. After writing advertising copy for the next two decades, John teamed with an old friend to develop a television sitcom, Hey Dad!, which went on to air for eight years. John began writing Ranger's Apprentice for his son, Michael, ten years ago, and is still hard at work on the series. He currently lives in the suburb of Manly, Australia, with his wife. In addition to their son, they have two grown daughters and four grandsons.

For this book I've made the change from reading it in Dutch,...

This was a good book, especially for a prequel. I didn't like the ending that much but, again, considering it's a prequel, it would be very difficult to give us a satisfying ending. I liked hearing more about Halt and Crowley and the other Rangers. I thought that some of the things they did were a l...

Enjoyed reading this book, mostly because I read the rest of the series. I can tell that it wouldn't be as exciting to someone who is new to Ranger's Apprentice series, too many in-jokes. But pretty good, all in all. I only skimmed two sections - one scene of one of the characters sneaking into a ca...
