The Siege of Macindaw (Ranger's Apprentice #6) - John Flanagan

Because of the Ranger's Apprentice Day I recently attended with my youngest sister (and the following meet-and-greet with the author; you can read more about that here) I decided it was time to read more books in the Ranger's Apprentice series and start where I left off.


The Siege of Macindaw is the sixth instalment of the series and forms one story together with the fifth book. The main thing happening in this book is the actual siege.


I was a little bit disappointed that it turned out to be almost solely about the siege. It's a 300-page read and it reads very fast, but focussing so much on this one event made it really feel like a middle book. In the end, not that much happens at all.

Also I didn't remember just how much these books are focussed on younger readers. The hero's are all very heroic and they are sure very smart/strong/overall awesome. The main villain was mostly mean.


I hope I'll like the next book in the series better.
