The Siege of Macindaw by John Flanagan

The Siege of Macindaw (Ranger's Apprentice, #6)The Siege of Macindaw by John Flanagan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I can give this one four stars for several reasons:
1. I am aggregating all of the .2 and point .1 from the other Ranger's Apprentice books :) It is a great series and deserves that credit somewhere.
2. I liked Will handling the adventure beginning to end. No "Gandalf" showing up to save the day...
3. This is both a benefit and a quesion-mark in my mind: Somehow Flanagan is able to pull in other coutnries/cultures as needed. We saw this as Horace trooped through Galicia. Understandably, to adult readers we recognize the European continent and its stereotypical inhabitants, but why were the first stories void of these countries/cultures? Weird. But Flanagan gets points in my book for bringing in the Scotti in this book. Interesting...
