John Flanagan grew up in Sydney, Australia, hoping to be a writer. John began writing Ranger’s Apprentice for his son, Michael, ten years ago, and is still hard at work on the series and its spinoff, Brotherband Chronicles. He currently lives in the suburb of Manly, Australia, with his wife. The Lost Stories explain all of that, and then some. Flanagan answered the riddle of Halt's recruitment by the Ranger's Corps in 'The Hibernian', which was five chapters that I would've happily paid ten times the book's price for (but the set price is just dandy). He included two of Gilan's adventures, or rather one of Gilan's and one of Jenny's.

More than a companion book, THE LOST STORIES is, ultimately, a new entry in the series and a tribute from author to reader. Visit ww. angersapprentice.

The Lost Stories is the eleventh book in the Ranger's Apprentice series by John Flanagan. Inspired by the questions and letters he has received from his faithful fans over the years, John Flanagan offers this gift in response: a collection of 'lost' tales that fill in the gaps between the Ranger's Apprentice novels

What if the man you loved betrayed your brother? Two thousand years ago, while a young Jewish preacher from Nazareth was gathering followers among the people of Galilee, his sister swept floors and dreamed of learning to read. In Leslie Cannold's story, it is the women of Nazareth who take centre stage. The rebellious, gifted Rachael, consigned by her sex to a life of drudgery. Bindy, the crone who teaches her the skills of the healer. Shona her sister, the victim of a harsh social code, and their mother Miriame, a woman seemingly unable to love. When Rachael falls in love with her brother's dearest friend, the rebel Judah of Iscariot, it seems that at least one of the women of Nazareth may find happiness. Then a message comes from her brother in Jerusalem. And the events begin to unfold that will change not just Rachael's life, but the world-forever.

Recommend this series and this book for those who like action and adventure and humor. Also recommend for the reluctant reader. These hard to put down books have been read by all 3 of my boys and myself.
The author uses this book to explore some of the stories touched upon in previous books, but not detailed. The stories that reveal the characters' pasts and their smaller adventures. The premise behind the stories is of a present day archaeologist and his assistants are excavating the remains of a castle, when one of them finds the ruins of a Ranger's cabin and a manuscript filled with long-lost tales.
My boys were between 10 and 12 when they started reading this series. My now 13 year old is enjoying these added adventures and I have a feeling when my other 2 come home from college, they will read this as well.

It was an interesting direction the author decided to take with these short stories that some up the time, about five years or so after the events of book 10. The short stories are presented as a stories found by archaeologist centuries after the event. There is great balance with in the stories themselves each entertaining and enthralling in their own ways. While it is easy to guess as to what some of the stories might contain they were a few surprises. Overall it was an enjoyable read, with just enough bittersweetness to some of the stories and laughter in others to make it memorable.

There were a lot of questions and mysteries and holes in the Ranger's Apprentice story. There was the tantalizing affair of Cassandra and Horace's wedding. The story of Halt's role at Hackam Heath. And, of course, the biggest question, the unsolvable issue of Will's father and mother, his arrival at Castle Redmont's doorstep, and Halt's involvement in it all.

The Lost Stories explain all of that, and then some. Flanagan answered the riddle of Halt's recruitment by the Ranger's Corps in 'The Hibernian', which was five chapters that I would've happily paid ten times the book's price for (but the set price is just dandy). He included two of Gilan's adventures, or rather one of Gilan's and one of Jenny's. The short story 'Dinner for Five' explains how Jenny develops feelings for the Ranger. 'The Inkwell and the Dagger' describes how Gilan took care of Foldar, a previous follower of the vanquished lord Morgorath who was terrorizing the countryside. Of course, there was an entertaining little scuffle, courtesy of Will and his mentor, as they were trying to arrest some moondarkers (thieves that trick ships into sailing head-on to rocks), an excursion to search for a stolen pet, and a nasty occurrence that involves a three-legged wolf.

I thought that Will's understanding of Tug's words was a little absurd in the last story, but that's my only criticism.
I loved the way Flanagan integrated an impromptu ad for his new series at the end. I'm sure I'll check that out later.

I did not get The Lost Stories at first becase I thought that he was just making a series last longer and didn't sound like it would ad that much. However, my 10 year old grandson is now on volume 9 and is loving the series. His 8 year old brother wants to read it since he likes it so much. Don't know if he has the patients though for a more realistic fantasy story. He has also gotten grandpa interested who is finding it lots of fun and on book 9. When Collin asked about the 11th volume I expained to him my reasons for not getting it and suggested that his dad get it when he has finished the series. A volume or 2 later I found that he is liking the books more and more so I decided to give in and give it a chance. Is it like the other books? No, but they are stories to fill in the areas you may have wondered about while reading the series. They are interesting and are sort of like finding out more about your friends. It was sort of sad when the series ended. I'm glad it did though because I have found a number of series lately that I did not like the last book written and even wished I had not purchased them. So the stories really are a nice closing and I am sure both grandsons and grandfather will enjoy them. I've gone on to the Brother Band chroicles and find them quite enjoyable too.

There are no words eloquent enough to describe how much I have enjoyed every word from the books in this series. This ending was the perfect touch, and a wonderful introduction to The Brotherband Chronicles. This is my third time reading The Ranger’s Apprentice, and I want to share it all with my grandsons.

These stories clear up a few mysteries you may have wondered about, and it is something to read when you have read the last of the ten book series. That way you are let down a bit easier than just being left in the cold cold world of no more Ranger's books. I definitely recommend this book and I highly recommend the 10 book series. It is a great adventure, the characterizations are strong and very endearing (Except for the few bad guys of course). It is also refreshingly free of obscenity and it somehow manages to capture your interest and affection without the normal bait of graphic sex and lurid scenes. I am not prissy by any means but I do really appreciate good story telling without the present fashion of irrelevant sex and gore liberally sprinkled throughout without regard to whether it enhances or detracts from the work.

When it comes to Flanagan's Ranger's Apprentice and Brotherband series, I'm a huge fan. I prefer the complete books to these "vignette"-type books, as they do sometimes come across as being slightly thin in terms of the stories (I realize that's by necessity), but I definitely appreciate finding out about some of the "stories behind the stories." I'm not too tough a critic, but since I felt this book wasn't quite 5-star worthy I "forced" myself to give only four stars. If I could, I'd give it 4.5. As I said, I'm a serious Flanagan fan, so that almost hurts me to do so! I loved the Ranger's Apprentice series and can't wait for the next Brotherband installment!!
