John Flanagan began his working life in advertising before moving to freelance writing and script editing. He has written TV jingles and comedy-drama for television, and is one of Australia's more prolific TV writers. John wrote the first book in The Ranger's Apprentice series to encourage his twelve-year-old son to enjoy reading. Michael was a small boy, and all his friends were bigger and stronger that he was. John wanted to show him that reading was fun, and heroes weren't necessarily big and muscular. Now in his mid-twenties, Michael is six feet tall, broad-shouldered and powerful - but he still loves The Ranger's Apprentice. John lives in the beachside Sydney suburb of Manly.

The second book of the Ranger's Apprentice series takes us through the journeys of young Will throughout the lands of the Celts. This time seeking the aid of the Celt people against the evil Morgarath etc etc. There they will find a land torn and split as...well i shouldn't actually say due to spoil but...Morgarath has been taking Celts as slaves. Will will then have to find out what Morgarath is planning and stop his devious plans.
Once again John Flanagan manages to create another interesting story of the ranger's apprentice story. This particular one is, in my opinion, far better than the first one. For starters this book introduces some new characters who are quite interesting and add up to the Araluan world giving you a more overall view of the rangers and the kingdom in gerenarl. Also it has more action as we will see Will and other characters to be forced to kill for the very first time. Again i am very satisfied by the way this book is written, giving enough detail without becoming excessive and tiresome. The storyline is more action oriented and you will find out that the ranger's series has more to what meets the eye as the book has many twists that i must say i wasn't really expecting (or actually was but didn't want to believe them) I honestly recomend this book as well as the entire series without any hesitation.
