The Ranger’s apprentice is about to be sold into slavery - but help can arrive from the most unexpected places . . .
Will and Evanlyn are bound for Skandia as the captives of the fearsome Skandian wolfship captain, Erak. Halt has sworn to rescue Will, and he will do anything to keep his promise - even defy his King. Expelled from the Rangers, Halt is joined by Horace as he travels through Gallica towards Skandia. On their way, they are constantly challenged by freelance knights - otherwise known as thieving thugs. Horace knows a thing or two about combat, though, and he soon begins to attract the attention of knights and warlords for miles around with his uncanny skill. But will they be in time to rescue Will from a life of slavery?

Comments about The Icebound Land:
I bought this book and the rest of the series for my 10 year old daughter and she loved it. I have also found it a great read myself. John Flanagan makes the charaters come to life and his style of writing draws you in to the story so that you feel as if you have been transported to the world of the Araluens. Thoroughly recommend this book.
