Lists with This Book. Community Reviews. Showing Rating details. More filters. Sort order. The book was released on 30 November 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 Corps forces him to stay back. Halt, however, is so desperate, he insults the King of his country, Araluen. Instead of the normal punishment, which is to ban the defendant from the Araluen borders forever, he banishes Halt from the borders only for one year.
Halt is banished from the Ranger Corps until the punishment is lifted, that is just a minor problem for Halt. He then sets out to find his apprentice once more. Halt is determined to get to Skandia quickly, so he takes the quickest route: Gallica. There he meets Will's old friend, Horace. Horace is Will's childhood friend, and just like Will, Horace is an orphan. In Gallica, Horace and Halt tried to go as fast as they could, but they were stopped by a lot of inexperienced knights. Horace, being a warrior apprentice, takes on the fake name "The Oakleaf Knight".
Horace beats all of them with ease without his grizzled companion, Halt, to step in. Horace's reputation grows until he is noticed throughout Gallica, which attracts the horrible knight, Deparnieux of Castle Montsombre. Deparnieux soon captures Horace and Halt.

It's getting kind of repetitive to tag all of these books with "pure awesomeness," but I mean Can I like Or become his apprentice? My poor baby. Getting himself kicked out of the country and Rangers just so he can go rescue will. And then Evanlyn and Will!
Will's so sweet and courageous, and Evanlyn is epic. Okay, so Horace is pretty much my second fa It's getting kind of repetitive to tag all of these books with "pure awesomeness," but Okay, so Horace is pretty much my second favorite character after Halt, of course! He's the best type of friend to have. And to think he was a bully at the beginning of book 1!!!! Epic moment: view spoiler [Halt's battle against Deparnieux. It's probably a good thing I was reading this in my room.
It was soooo much fun. There was also a few mentions of girls wearing "indecent" skirts which would actually be long by our standards , and one person says that they "look better that way". Some alcohol involved. But the main issue with this story was drug abuse. It was actually handled very well and was portrayed in a negative light, but it's still something you should be aware of before reading this. Overall, I really enjoyed this story, and I'm looking forward to book four! View all 3 comments. Dec 17, Elizabeth Dragina rated it it was amazing.

Loved this book, the details, the characters, the scenes, but most importantly the theme Loved the book and especially Will I think I said everything that needed to be said. Where's the next one? View all 11 comments. Contains minor spoilers. 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 Contains minor spoilers. I especially loved getting into Halt's head and seeing him grieving for the loss of his friend. It was also great to see Evanlyn step up towards the end of the book, but I sorely missed Will at times. His wit bought an extra something to the book, and while Halt's teasing of Horace left me in chuckles, it just wasn't the same and Halt and Will's banter. I do, however, have to say that the plot wasn't as fantastic as The Burning Bridge.
The second half of the book dragged a little bit, not too terribly so but noticeably. I am anxious to see where the story is going to progress to in Oakleaf Bearers so I'm going to pick that up as soon as humanly possible. I'm so glad that I picked up this 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. In this book that became even less I'm not gonna tell you why because And I continue my reading of the Ranger's Apprentice series. We learn more about Halt and Horace, Evenlyn and even the king. We also learn a lot more about the world this story is set in. All in all a worthy continuation. Jan 03, Ashrakat Deyab rated it liked it Shelves: contemporary , series , owned-books , reviewed.
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 2. The series is called the Ranger's Apprentice after all, so it should be more about the Ranger's Apprentice. Seeing it from a different perspective, however, The Icebound Land is just a transition to a hopefully more intriguing sequel.

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 This as another solid fantasy adventure to add to the series. Their adventures and dedication to Will were a nice touch to the story and we got to see quite a bit of development in both of them.
Will is not truly here for a large portion of the book, which is unfortunate because he's a lot of fun. We do get to see Evanlyn take charge more though. She's definitely a strong woman and adds a lot to the story. Their interactions with Erak were a nice touch. I'm wondering what will happen there in the future. The ending was fairly satisfactory, but definitely left a lot open.

I'm excited to pick up the next installment and continue on with this story. Ten years ago I would have been completely obsessed with this and even now I find it very enjoyable.

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.

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. Feb 02, Lazybee rated it liked it. 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. View 2 comments.

Oct 17, Kayla Loewen rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites , owned-books , absolute-ultimate-favorites. 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 hand over his treasured silver oakleaf It speaks volumes about his character. And to see Horace grow so much in his skill as an apprentice knight and to see his relationship with Halt was wonderful!
