Shelves: favourites , fantasy , should-have-a-film , favourite-series , want , australian This is yet another the eleventh in fact addition to a wonderful series of YA books. I love them for their characterisation, for the rich world, for the fact that both men and women are heroes in this world, for the fact that it is set in a more pure older time with a clear distinction between good and evil and just because it's great entertainment as a series. And like all great book series both the target audience of year olds and adult readers can enjoy them. I know this to be true be This is yet another the eleventh in fact addition to a wonderful series of YA books. I know this to be true because my mother loves them just as much as I do. Obviously my world views are going to be different from other readers and so while I like the clarity of morality in these novels others may not.

This is what this Lost Books of the Bible enables us to do. We can examine the books of the Scriptures which we have in the authorized version, and then in this book we can read those scriptures which have been eliminated by various councils in order to make up our standard Bible.

It is safe to say that a comparison of the accepted books with those rejected may be relied upon, for those books which were accepted are far superior in value to the others.

These others which are included in the Lost Books of the Bible comprise all kinds of stories, tales and myths. No great figure appears in history without myths growing up about him. Every great personage becomes a nucleus or center about which folk tales cluster.

It is impossible that a man representing so great a force as Jesus of Nazareth should appear in the world without finding many echoes of His personality in contemporary literature—many stories which grew up about Him as time elapsed. What these tales and stories are, just how He appears to the fictional minds of His day and afterwards, it is interesting to note.

Ranger's Apprentice 11: The Lost Stories by John Flanagan Exclusive Chapter

Very often the fiction writer depicts life and the great truth of life better than the historian. He does not pretend to write down what is exactly true, but he tinges all things with his imagination. His feelings, however, may be just and reliable. The reading of this Lost Books of the Bible is interesting as a matter of course. All who in any way are attracted by the personage of Jesus are interested to know any stories that may have grown up about Him.

They are also valuable because they enable us to get many a point of view which otherwise would have been lost. History may be true, but in a sense tradition is even truer. It has been said that history records what has been, but tradition tells what ought to have been.

Discoveries 1 star - This is me being completely selfish. I hate the idea of our characters being dead so that no one even remembers them, and all their things are buried and dead and gone, with these strange people digging them up and going through it. Death of a Hero 4 stars - I am so glad that we got to learn more about Will's biological family, and don't think it could have be explained in a better way.

The Inkw I'm really not a fan of short story anthologies so I am a bit nervous for this! I loved this story so much.

It cleared a lot things up, and was just generally engaging. Gilan was always a favourite character of mine, but I felt that we didn't get to know him as much as I would have liked sadly. This short story was completely action-packed and suspenseful. It was surprising shocking, and the ending was unexpected in the best possible way.

I wish we could get an entire book from Gilan's perpsepctive! The Roamers 4 stars - I didn't not expect that at all! Alyss is such an amazing character once you get to know her, and I loved that we got to see her and Will work together, just the two of them.

And Ebony was back, so that was great too! Purple Prose 4 stars - This was delightfully hilarious! I loved seeing more of Halt and Will while they are still apprentice and master. Diner for Fiver 4. This story had me smiling like a fool. I loved Jenny, she was smart, resourceful and brave, and I wish she had more involved in the main series. The Bridal Dance 5 stars - There were so many feels associated with this story!

I am so, so happy for Evanlynn she'll never be Cassandra and Horace. Their wedding was super adorable, and it was good to see some of our favourite characters come back. The Hibernian 3. Crowley and Halt have a fantastic dynamic but the story wasn't the best in the collection so far. I'm looking forward to The Tournament at Gorlan. The Wolf 3. This was so much sadder than I thought it would be, and why I don't think it is a good idea to give the 'new' horse the same name, and make Tug change his name, I loved this little story as a whole.

And About Time Too 5 stars - Beautiful. View all 7 comments. Mar 05, Dan rated it liked it Shelves: This would have gotten 4 stars, but the stories just were too "uneven". One or two I really enjoyed, and would have preferred to have had them expanded to a whole novel. Others seemed to me to be nearly "filler", even if they did flush out aspects of the over arching story. View 1 comment. Feb 09, Kathleen rated it liked it Shelves: Will's dog Ebony and his horse Tug play key roles, too.

The Roamers-- Alyss and Will must rescue their poor dog Ebony from "the roamers" who snatched her for nefarious reasons. Fairly grim.

Purple Prose-- a humorous adventure tale. Will writes a speech for Horace's wedding funny. Will and Halt must capture some clever "moondarkers" raiding ships on the southern coast. These are like pirates, only they wreck and plunder ships on land, on beaches. Dinner for Five-- Jenny invites Gilan for dinner, but unwelcome guests show up. Jenny doesn't wait around for Gilan to save her bacon. The Hibernian-- One of the best in the anthology, set about 4 decades ago, when the Ranger Corp is falling apart, along with the entire kingdom.

Halt left his home in Hibernia. In Araluen he befriends a young, despairing Crowley. We hear about the old Ranger who trained Halt. The Wolf-- Sad story. Will and Tug must track down a dangerous lame wolf. Old Bob the horse trainer plays a major role. We meet Cormac, the retired horse who used to be called Cropper.

We learn about the breeding program and lineage-keeping for horses in service to the King's Rangers 9. I honestly found myself wanting to skip chapters just so I could finish the book. I hate it when people talk crud about a book they just weren't feeling, so I'm going to avoid that. I think maybe I could give it another try later, but as of now, it's going to stay one star ;.

Jun 15, Cordelianne rated it liked it. Some of these stories were awesome and really added something to the overall story.

But other stories were boring and did not really add anything. One of my favorites was definitely the wedding story! It was so cute, but still action packed! Jul 16, Luann rated it really liked it Shelves: What a joy it was to be back in the Ranger's Apprentice world with Will and Halt and all the others. I had resigned myself to the fact that book 10 would be the last, so this was a very pleasant surprise! And while a series of short stories isn't quite the same as a full-length book, I still enjoyed it VERY much.

I think my favorite was the story about Halt before he became a Ranger - probably because I've always thought that a series about his younger years would be just as great as the books w What a joy it was to be back in the Ranger's Apprentice world with Will and Halt and all the others.

I think my favorite was the story about Halt before he became a Ranger - probably because I've always thought that a series about his younger years would be just as great as the books we have of Will.

The Lost Stories (Ranger's Apprentice, #11) by John Flanagan

My one complaint with these stories is that Horace was pretty much absent. He makes a short appearance here and there, but nothing of any significance. I love the dynamic between the three when Halt, Will and Horace are going on adventures together and solving problems for people. Although I guess it was a trade-off since we got a lot more of Gilan, which I have been wanting as well. All in all, this is a great one for fans of the Ranger's Apprentice series.

I wouldn't suggest starting with this one, but if you've read and enjoyed the others, you definitely want to read this as well. I have it sitting here waiting for me, so hopefully I can get to it soon! Oct 24, Kat rated it really liked it Shelves: Basic Premise: This volume is a collection of short stories set in the world of the Ranger's Apprentice series. They fill in some of the gaps on reader questions that aren't specifically addressed in the novels of the series.

Flanagan's short fiction works well, but if you haven't read the series, you won't have a clue what's going on in the stories. This was definitely intended for people who are already fans. The stories cover most of the logical questions readers would ask: After all, horses have shorter lives than humans, and working horses can only work so long.

How did Halt make his way from Hibernia into the Ranger Corps? The stories also cover Horace and Cassandra's wedding and a few other tidbits to please readers. I enjoyed the series, and I enjoyed the stories. Flanagan ended the series at a good point. I think the series was beginning to run out of steam too many deus ex machinas! These stories weren't good for episodes of another novel, but they complement the series well. Dec 26, Lila Kims rated it really liked it Shelves: All the others proved to be either absolutely hilarious or positively hit-you-in-the-feelsy.

I definitely have my peeves with John Flanagan's style, but I've experienced the world of Ranger's Apprentice too long, and have gotten to know his characters too well, not to hold this series close to my heart. Probably the one called Purple Prose - where Will writes his terrible speech for the wedding. And HALT, guys. I really liked that one too. The resemblance in my mind is uncanny. Now excuse me while I go read The Royal Ranger.

Dec 26, Dana rated it it was amazing. This book has been the cutest, sweetest, and funniest sequel in the whole series! A loot of progress that a reader can't help but tear up as he sees the characters mature page by.

Ranger's apprentice : the lost stories

To view it, click here. I read the first three books in this series a while ago and couldn't for the life of me remember why I stopped. But after reading Lost Stories, I remembered why I had stopped. For example, "The farmer was I read the first three books in this series a while ago and couldn't for the life of me remember why I stopped. For example, "The farmer was already dressed in a nightshirt and it was clear that he was about to retire for the night.

Or "He placed a finger to his lips, signaling her to be quiet. Now, I can handle these redundancies in small doses, but Flanagan seems to phrase most sentences this way. It gets to the point that there are so many of these poorly phrased sentences that reading becomes painful. And when his sentences aren't redundant, they are just annoying. And the last reason I can't stand Flanagan's writing style is that he breaks one of the Golden Rules of writing: An example of this: The stories: Foreward, Afterword, Fragment: I really don't understand why it was necessary to add these.

Why did we have to see a professor digging up these stories? Just tell me or rather, show me the stories; you don't have to contrive some reason for me to be reading them. Death of a Hero: I actually rather enjoyed this one. It was interesting to see Will's parents and what had happened to them.

It gave Will a little more depth as a character. It was also nice to see a slighly different side of Halt, who so rarely shows emotion. But even though I liked this story, it really suffered from just a meh writing style. The Inkwell and the Dagger: I enjoyed this story too, maybe even more so than Death of a Hero. It made me remember that I really liked Gilan. Things I didn't like about it: The Roamers: I didn't so much like this one.

I found the premise sort of ridiculous: Ranger going on a dangerous infiltration mission to save his. His dog. Are you really out of cool ranger stuff for him to do that you half to build a storyline out of him saving his dog? Purple Prose, Dinner for Five: I didn't read these. I read the last half first, so at this point in the book, I just couldn't go on anymore.

The Bridal Dance: I thought the whole assassination plot was a neat concept, but the clues that lead Will to the assassins seemed a little far-fetched and contrived. I had trouble believing that anyone could take those random, insignificant pieces of information and form them into a coherent suspicion. The Hibernian: I wanted to like this one more than I did. I liked the idea of seeing Halt before the Rangers series takes place, but I found myself rolling my eyes at the writing style more than actually enjoying the story.

The Wolf: I hated this story. I hated the way the events of this story were handled, and I hated why this story was written. The premise: Ranger tracks down and kills wolf that has been harassing the countryside. Sounds cool; I wouldn't mind reading that. But the way in which Will tracked down the wolf was so surpassingly stupid that I lost all immersion in the story.

The wolf attacks a farmer's wife and son, but is driven back into the forest. The wolf is easily identifiable because it is missing one of its legs. Thus, it should be a simple matter for a ranger to follow its distinctive tracks back into the forest to its lair. But instead of taking a brief account of the farmer's story and departing for the hunt, Will keeps cross-interrogating these poor farmers.

Farmer's wife: Why are you interrogating these farmers? This isn't that big of a mystery: There was a wolf; you found its tracks. And you already knew it was missing a leg from those tracks, so this line of questioning serves no purpose. Stop cross-interrogating these poor farmers and go kill that wolf.

The Lost Stories

Then the next morning, having nothing more to interrogate the farmers about, one would imagine Will would begin the hunt. Tug his horse, and we'll talk about the fact that he can "talk" later: Are we hunting the wolf this morning? You aren't hunting for a serial killer; you are hunting for a WOLF. Are you planning on giving this wolf a trial or something? You don't need to cross-interrogate anybody and you don't need to gather evidence.

Even if this wolf attacked no other family, it has still proven itself to be highly dangerous and in need of slaying. He had never seen Halt in such an uncertain mood. He waited, giving his mentor time to settle his thoughts. So does Arald. Theyve both known about it for some time. So maybe I should just. Is it something bad? Will asked, and Halt looked directly at him for the first time in several minutes.

Im not sure, he said. For a moment, Will wondered if he wanted to hear it, whatever it might be. Then, seeing the discomfort on Halts face, he realised that, good or bad, it was something that his teacher had to get off his chest. He gestured for Halt to continue. Halt paused for a few more seconds, then he began. I suppose it starts after the final battle against Morgaraths forces, at Hackham Heath.

Theyd been retreating for several days. Then they stopped and made a stand. Wed broken their main attack and we were forcing them back.
