Review
This is the 11th book in the Ranger's Apprentice Series. It is a compilation of various stories that connect to the Ranger's Apprentice Series and certain events mentioned in the books. The whole series is 12 books long, and I would recommend all of them. I thought this was a good edition to the series, and would recommend it if you are reading or want to read this series.
