Bitva na Hackhamské pláni Hraničářův učeň První roky #2Onward to the flailing of a fangirl I did rather love this Hence it took me three hours to read from cover to cover There is so much that excites me about returning to the great old kingdom of Araluen and the great old characters that are all so familiarDisclaimer actually I don't really know uite why I rated it 4 stars rather than 5it just struck me as not uite 5 star stuff Almost but not uiteIt was so fun to get back to the old characters that I remember and uiz my brain on every single random name to try and remember if he came up again in the actual RA series And Halt is just such a great character The first time Gilan's name was mentioned I may or may not have suealed out loud and I loved every single time when he came in is a shameless Gilan fangirlThere was actually less of the hilarious dialogue although it was definitely still there and it was just as good without it Less is right I'm going to go with the assumption that there was action and less Halt and Crowley chasing butterfliesThe action did seem to take a few chapters to actually start up the pace properly but once it was going it was good Also I kinda read this in three hoursso it may have felt faster paced for me than it would have if you read slower It was rather good from about the 13 point through and onwardAnd the plot is one familiar to all who've read the Ranger's Apprentice series because the general outline is already there but there are the details the night raids plus GILAN If you don't read it for anything else read it for the two pages when Gilan just takes over and totally saves Halt's lifeI loved the ending It was so sweet and adorable and just really made me feel like re reading the entire RA series again But no Too many books not enough timeI definitely recommend this to everyone and all It's an easy read full of adventure and bows and arrows and swords and all the fun stuff like that Mír v Araluenu je v ohrožení a nově korunovaný král Duncan se připravuje na válku Morgarath zatím potají shromažďuje armádu divokých bestií známých jako wargalové Halt se chystá na zdánlivě nemožný úkol – zdolat Deštné a temné hory připlížit se nepozorovaně k nepříteli a odhalit jeho temné plány Ví že jediný chybný krok může mít nedozírné následky protože v bitvě na Hackhamské pláni se bude rozhodovat o osudu celého království Rangers Halt and Crowley are once again called upon to defend the realm for Duncan Halt is sent off to spy on Morgarath and his band of Wargals gaining valuable intelligence while Crowley accompanies the ueen to a spa during her difficult pregnancy The serial introduction of important characters in the latter series was fun as well as learning backstories but there is too much meandering and repetition in the novel which could have been omitted Of course this is a good read if too focused on coffee and meals But I love the relationship between Halt and Crowley and young Gilan King Duncan and Baron Arald Fun to see the birth of Princess Cassandra and the origins of Will Horace and the other wards orphansIf I hadn't already read The Ruins of Gorlan and The Burning Bridge this book wouldn't have felt somewhat anticlimactic and predictable But that's the risk when an author writes preuels to a finished series Flanagan repeated things too many times How silently rangers can move How a ranger's horse cannot be stolen and no need to tie it up cuz it won't wander away And how much coffee everyone drinks or thinks about drinking I was disappointed by this book I must admit I started it with a bad attitude The end was alright but I did not find it a good bookThe first sentence was lame The first 100 pages were also lame I did not care about the characters or about the story It is a preuel I know who lives at the end There should have been there to care about When you read a good book you actually care about the outcomeThe action got a bit better towards the last 13 of the book But I still was not completely drawn into the storyI felt that it was repetitive I was told the same thing many times over How many times do you need to bring up coffee for instance How many times do you need to say the same thing Like the fact that the Rangers moved silently and no one could see them and they blended into the trees and It was fun to see some RA characters again Although their jokes were better in RAThe political correctness bugged me Really bugged me It says so many times that so and so is not religious when it could have said it only once The gender 'euality' annoys me too John Flanagan seems to find it necessary to defend the intelligence of women He defends the fact that women should be able to serve in whatever role they want That they are just as good or better than men I believe that men and women are eual but it does not have to be the way that it is in this bookThere were not only spoilers for the Ranger's Apprentice series but for the outcome of the book itself It told you straight out that view spoilerMorgarath would live for years later and learn to control the Wargals better hide spoiler Another fantastic John Flanagan book I love this world and the characters and getting to see Halt and Crowley in their younger years Parts of this book made me want a whole series dedicated to Gilan and his backstory with Halt but I can't wait to see what comes next Unfortunately this book was light on the usual banter of the series which is really the main reason why I read these 35 STARSAs much as I love the Ranger's Apprentice series I'm sad to only rate this book 35 STARS I enjoyed this book but it seemed a bit repetitive at times The title is The Battle of Hackham Heath and when the battle came it just came and went It just didn't seem like much of a battle to me Everything that came before was exciting than the battleI don't remember much about the first book in this preuel series but did it mention the Wargals in it How did these Beasts come about Where did they come from and how did Morgarath get themWe find out how Cassandra is born and we even get to meet a 12 year old Gilan who actually is interested in becoming a Ranger's Apprentice when he turns of ageI loved the prologue but I was also sad with the storyline of it WillI will read the next adventure in this series because I do enjoy the characters It would be nice to see how Halt and Gilan get along in Gilan's apprentice days Is Halt the same with Gilan as with Will or did he treat them differently HHMMM something to ponder I didn't enjoy this book as much as other Ranger's Apprentice novels but it was still a good middle grade read I really liked it how it gave information about how the battle of Hackham Heath went And It followed how it went after wards
