It had been a poor harvest in Scanlon Estate.Friday 56:
"On top of that, you've said yourself that she's rebellious and difficult. Maybe she needs the discipline that life as an apprentice would bring. I'm not saying she should do the full five-year apprenticeship. A year should be enough—just so she wins her bronze oakleaf. The experience will do her a lot of good."The Royal Ranger by John Flanagan. This is the final book in The Ranger's Apprentice series. I've had this book on my stack since Nov. 6, 2013. I've read the rest of the series but this one was overlooked somehow. Here is the description from Amazon;
Will Treaty has come a long way from the small boy with dreams of knighthood. Life had other plans for him, and as an apprentice Ranger under Halt, he grew into a legend—the finest Ranger the kingdom has ever known. Yet Will is facing a tragic battle that has left him grim and alone. To add to his problems, the time has come to take on an apprentice of his own, and it’s the last person he ever would have expected. Fighting his personal demons, Will has to win the trust and respect of his difficult new companion—a task that at times seems almost impossible.
John Flanagan returns for one final bow to the series that has conquered millions of readers worldwide with this pulse-pounding adventure that brings one era to a close, and ushers in the next.
