I just got Ranger's Apprentice: The Lost Stories by John Flanagan recently. I am eager to read these stories to fill in the blanks in the series that Flanagan has finished.

Here is the product description:
The secret history of the New York Times bestselling Ranger's Apprentice

Unconfirmed accounts of a group of Araluen warriors - tales of adventure, battle, and triumph over evil - have spread for centuries throughout the known world. Most notable is a clan shrouded in mystery, phantom warriors known as the Rangers.

Two names pass the lips of every storyteller: Halt, and his apprentice, Will. They and their comrades in arms are said to have traveled throughout the kingdom and beyond its borders, protecting those who needed it most. If true, these rumors can be only part of the story.

Only now, centuries after these men and women walked the earth, do we have confirmation of their existence. Behold The Lost Stories.
Professor Giles MacFarland groaned softly as he eased his aching back. He was getting too old to remain crouched for like periods like this, gently whisking dust away from the excavated ground before him as he sought to release yet another arifact from the earth that had held it captive for so long.
Friday 56:
Will recoiled in astonishment at the words. "Hate you? How could I hate you? Why would I hate you?"
