    One thought on “The Icebound Land”

    1. The Icebound Land (Ranger's Apprentice #3), John Flanagan The Icebound Land is the third book in the Ranger's Apprentice book series written by Australian author John Flanagan. The book was released on 30 November 2005 in Australia. Will, the main character, is captured by the Skandians along with his friend, Evanlyn, in a big war in the previous book. The capturer, the Jarl Erak, takes them in as slaves. Meanwhile, Will's mentor, Halt, has sworn to save him from the Skandians, but the Ranger Co [...]

    2. It's getting kind of repetitive to tag all of these books with "pure awesomeness," but I mean HALT. <3 How could that not be pure awesomeness???? Can I like meet him? Or become his apprentice? My poor baby. Getting himself kicked out of the country and Rangers just so he can go rescue will. <3 <3 <3 (Not a spoiler, since it's in the blurb)And then Evanlyn and Will! Will's so sweet and courageous, and Evanlyn is epic. AND HORACE. Okay, so Horace is pretty much my second favorite chara [...]

    3. And I continue my reading of the Ranger's Apprentice series. I'm pretty sure this one was the last book I had read during my first go at the series.The story took a bit of a darker turn in this book but exciting nonetheless.I found it interesting how the author turned more and more away from a single POV story during this book. There were always some chapters from different POVs but mostly the story was told from Will's POV. In this book that became even less (I'm not gonna tell you why because [...]

    4. 2.5 stars- it was OK.As captivating as they were, if the 200+ pages of this book had been summarized into a chapter or two and had been merged with the previous or next installment of the series, I would have liked it much more. But the plot just doesn't deserve a whole book of the series to itself. And I understand that Flanagan was merely giving the readers a chance to identify with Evanlyn, but he didn't have to cut Will out of the action do so. The series is called the Ranger's Apprentice af [...]

    5. Contains minor spoilers.3.5 starsI know that I've said this a couple of times already but it deserves repeating: I am enjoying this series so much more than I would have ever expected. I've flown through these first three books, and have the fourth book sitting on my bedside table begging to be read. It's completely addictive. The characters are some of my favourites already. We get to see a new side of all the characters in this sequel. I especially loved getting into Halt's head and seeing him [...]

    6. This as another solid fantasy adventure to add to the series. In this installment Will and Evanlyn have been taken by the Skandian Jarl Weak back to his homeland to be sold as slaves. Halt, unwilling to let Will disappear forever, leaves behind the Rangers to go after his young apprentice with Horace as his companion. Horace and Halt were a fun team, although not as entertaining as Halt and Will often are. Their adventures and dedication to Will were a nice touch to the story and we got to see q [...]

    7. This book was so captivating I read it in two days. The third in John Flanagan's 'Ranger's Apprentice' series 'Icebound Land' takes up where 'Burning Bridge' left off in a cliffhanger ending and follows Halt and Horace as they travel to Skandia to rescue Will and the princess. Well to say the least I absolutely loved this book. So exciting and fast paced and vivid and funny and oh man I just LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't wait to read the next few and move on to John's 'Brotherband Ch [...]

    8. These books are so quick and easy to read, while there is still a lot of action and other things happening. I really enjoy the friendship between Will, Horace and Evanlynn!

    9. 7/10. This book was good, but it wasn't as good as the first two and many others in the series. It was a little more slow paced and just not quite as engaging. But it was still good, I still never got bored, which is the main thing. The writing style of these books make them interesting and entertaining no matter what's happening.

    10. Three down 9 to go. The book was good but not great. This book comprises of journey and survival of two parties. Horace and halt, will and Cassandra aka evanlyn.The main purpose of this book is to lay the framework for the next one. And it does a good work in that.

    11. Not as good as the first two, but will definitely continue this series because I can listen to them when I bike to work.

    12. I thought it was rather bad. And the only reason for me still continuing to read this series is because I promised my little brother (which was a mistake) Throughout the whole book, almost nothing happens. You got the story line of Halt and Horace, who go through Gallica while defeating some not-so-chivalrous knights. And the other story line is of Evelyn and Will who get kidnapped, get sold as slaves and after that manage to escape. There is no real pace in the book and the events that do happe [...]

    13. This was better than the second book. No stupid scenes like what we get with Horace towards the end of book 2. (Although I don't buy that people didn't realize what Halt was up to at the beginning of the book - it couldn't have been more obvious). We get suspense, but in different forms than we have seen previously. I loved the direction this book went - it was not what I was expecting, and it was captivating. The end of the book didn't really have what I would call a climax - but these are shor [...]

    14. This really is a great kids series. My 12 year old loves it as much as he did the first time we listened to it 4 years ago.

    15. WARNING: SPOILER ALERT!!I read this book in less than a day, which is not really normal for me.(I tend to read slow!) But it's just so fast-paced and absolutely unputdownable. My love and admiration for Halt increased throughout the whole book as I read all the sacrifices he made in order to rescue Will; purposely publicly insulting King Duncan, and hoping the resulting punishment would be banishment, although it could have resulted in death; being expelled from the Ranger Corps and having to ha [...]

    16. The Short and Sweet of It (from )Kidnapped after the fierce battle with Lord Morgarath, Will and Evanlyn are bound for Skandia as captives aboard a fearsome wolfship. Halt has sworn to rescue Will, and he will do anything to keep his promise—even defy his King.Expelled from the Rangers he has served so loyally, Halt is joined by Will’s friend Horace as he travels toward Skandia. On their way, they are challenged constantly by freelance knights—but Horace knows a thing or two about combat. [...]

    17. (Thanks a lot GR for errasing my first review and making me type this out again. Grr.)This book is about Halt (who I really want to start calling Logan, but I'll restrain myself) and Horace trying to track down Evanlyn and Will, and about Evanlyn and Will trying to survive their kidnapping. There's a lot of telling instead of showing in this one. It's not the greatest, but it's not too bad either.Also, because of the showing instead of telling, I don't like Evanlyn. I don't want her dead hate he [...]

    18. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters are great and I loved the story. It broke my heart on multiple occasions because of Will and Evanlyn's situation. The only thing that I didn't like was that the whole gang wasn't together!!! And that's to no fault of writing or anything, just a personal preference. Love the writing and I'm gushing at this point. So. read this.

    19. 3.5 out of 5 stars. This felt more of a filler book to me, and while I did enjoy it, nobody really made any progress. Kind of disappointing, but I will continue in with the series- still fantastic books. More detailed review to come, as I need to fall back into my old schedule.

    20. I liked this book and would like to give it 3 1/2 stars. My main hesitation in not giving it more stars is bc this book goes on location and characters are separated. I still liked it, but miss all the characters left "at home."

    21. This book wasn't the best, but not the worst.Will has been takenHalt was awakenedHe wanted to get him backNo matter who he had to attack

    22. Everything is falling in place, in places where they should be. The power of friendship is remarkably strong.

    23. This book was my favorite in the whole series by far. It had humor, suspense, and almost all of the components you would need to make a perfect book. It was also very emotional! There were many moments that nearly made me cry. This book is definitely a recommendation for all lovers of books. I am super excited to start reading the next book in this amazing series!
