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

The Lost Stories (Ranger's Apprentice, #11)This book is kind of the eleventh book in the series, and I gave it a rating of four out of five. The dedication page tells readers that this book answers questions asked by fans of the series. For example, the first part of the book tells the story of Will's father and how Halt came to look after Will. The series talked about how Will's father saved Halt's life, but this book actually retells the events during the battle against Morgarath. There are stories about his dog, Ebony, and the retirement of Will's horse, Tug. There are robbers in the woods, robbers along the shore, and assassins at Horace's wedding.

Fans of the series will love this book. I read it a couple of years ago, so I didn't remember some of the references. I liked reading about Will's father, and the author included plenty of action with all of the bandits around. There were even a couple of stories that featured Gilan, one found Jenny almost killed by jewel thieves. I didn't like how the chapters skipped around, but it's not a big deal. I enjoyed the short story format.
