The Siege Of Macindaw
The Siege of Macindaw (Ranger's Apprentice #6) - John Flanagan

Because of the Ranger's Apprentice Day I recently attended with my youngest sister (and the following meet-and-greet with the author; you can read more about that here) I decided it was time to read more books in the Ranger's Apprentice series and start where I left off.

 

The Siege of Macindaw is the sixth instalment of the series and forms one story together with the fifth book. The main thing happening in this book is the actual siege.

 

I was a little bit disappointed that it turned out to be almost solely about the siege. It's a 300-page read and it reads very fast, but focussing so much on this one event made it really feel like a middle book. In the end, not that much happens at all.

Also I didn't remember just how much these books are focussed on younger readers. The hero's are all very heroic and they are sure very smart/strong/overall awesome. The main villain was mostly mean.

 

I hope I'll like the next book in the series better.

 

You can also read my reviews for the rest of the books in the series:

The Ruins of Gorlan

The Burning Bridge

The Icebound Land

The Battle For Skandia / Oakleaf Bearers

The Sorceror of the North

The Siege of Macindaw - John Flanagan The mid-point of the series. I liked this northern setting, and thought that Flanagan made good use of Alyss, and her strength and loyalty.

I hated the whole hypnotism thing.

Having Horace and Will back together again - and on their own - was outstanding. Sniff, sniff, they're so grown up.

The Siege of Macindaw - John Flanagan More super-fun candy-fiction.

The books in this series keep me hooked. hack-and-slash fantasy, light on magic, heavy on swordplay and witty banter, and 100% fun.

This one was particularly enjoyable-- it should be Sorcerer of the North, part 2, as they don't stand alone well as individual novels, but as a two-parter, they're really fun.

The Siege of Macindaw - John Flanagan Overall, this book was better than I expected. The writing is definitely meant for younger kids so bear that in mind. This book also is mainly an extension of the last book and is not meant to be read separately. I did think that the ricochet arrows was a little far fetched but most of the other action scenes were believable. The fast forward in time does leave a lot of questions needing to be answered. I can see why many people didn't like it. There was almost no back story explaining what had gone on in between books 4 and 5. It was nice seeing a lighter side of Will. Also, the banter between Will and Horace provided some much needed humor. Overall, I really enjoyed this light read.

The Siege of Macindaw - John Flanagan A very satisfying ending to the storyline that Flanagan started in Book 5.
