Ided not to continue Then on a whim after taking a break for a few years I decided to give it one chance and was rewarded with an adventurous tale full of iet humor and deeds of both intelligence and valor I don t know if it was me or the last couple of books before this one but I now remember what I found endearing about this series in the first place Will and Halt are back as a team and Horace too I have definite plans to pick Engineering Thermodynamics up the next book and I don t think I ll wait so long Not really sure what s going on here I feel like I walked in on a business meeting halfway through I ve missed some important info and the CEO isn t about to stop his speech to fill me in That s okayite nderstandable But there s no sense in me wasting my time finishing this thing out if I m going to remain at sea the rest of the time I m out The Kings of Clonmel seems to be about rangers and bandits and religion and storming castlesI think I don t knowNot realizing it was the eighth book in a long running series I made the mistake of picking this p at the library on a whim I figured why not I like rangers This sounded like it might be set in Scotland and that would be cool by me even if it turned out to be fantasy or historical fiction Sure it looked to be a YA book and generally I ve found that I m getting too old for those but hey I thought I could at least bank on this being heavy on the adventure Plus I liked Harry Potter so maybe this might fall into that realm Some of my assumptions played out true My other guesses fell flat or were never resolved before I gave A Wedding at the Italians Demand up about a fifth of the way in I think giving a book a couple chapters to horse collar you is fair enough John Flanagan spent those chapters leading me nowhere There was a brief flash of action but mostly it was a slog through details that might later be relevant to getting the plot finally setp I suppose he assumes at this point that all of his readers are well versed in his world It doesn t take much for a writer to make single volumes in a series self contained but it s his sandbox he can create whatever he wants in it however he pleases Then again that approach might turn off potential future fans Personally this experience hasn t made me want to rush out and read book one On the other hand it hasn t dissuaded me from ever giving the series another shot The Kings of Clonmel wasn t my favourite book of the series but I still obviously really enjoyed it It certainly had me engaged but I ll admit that the second half lacked the Transformed Into the Frenchmans Mistress (The Hudsons of Beverly Hills, urgency and addictiveality the first half had The first half just threw mind blowing plot twists at me again and again and I was a little overwhelmed in a good way with all the new information especially about Halt s historyI also really loved seeing of Halt and Horace together They have such an adorable and hilarious relationship Cht nieuws Er heerst onrust in Hibernia en die onrust dreigt over te slaan op Araluen Een kwaadwillige religieuze sekte waarvan de leden zichzelf de Buitenstaanders noemen probeert er aan de macht te komen Vijf van.
Actually it s of a 25 ratingFor the longest time it felt like nothing was happening I m tiring of the formulaic I m the best at everything except when it really mattersIn the first few books the plot was fueled by external actions to which our band of merry men reacted It didn t matter how swift or appropriate their reactions were things would still get incredibly dangerous Now instead the plot is often fueled by the main characters mistakes or chancy failures at the worst time possible For example Will shoots a thousand arrows one after the other and hits the mark every time then when he really needs to take someone out he fails Or Horace the sword master suddenly decides to lean his sword against a wall and stroll several meters away in the middle of a battle this actually happened in The Siege of Macindaw leaving himself wide open to an enemy swordsman Like this there are another myriad stupid actions that just ruin the heroes credibility for meIn this book in particularview spoilerWill s I seems to have dropped to Forrest Gump s level He s told Tennyson plan which is a very simple plan several times Then when he s eavesdropping on the bad guys and they say something like we ll fake an attack in the village where Tennyson is and then we ll execute a real attack in another village without his protection cue evil laugh So we ll take 30 guys to the first attack and 80 to the second Will is confused by this revelation What He doesn t nderstand why would they take 30 to attack a big village and 80 for the smaller one It s like he never heard of Tennyson s plan at allThen we have the Genovesans Will and Horace asked Halt about them and he told them who and what they were It wasn t a long description Mostly a few strong clear adjectives that leave no room for doubt Mercenaries assassins poisoners That s right poisoners So when Will sees someone that might have been a Genovesan walking away from the pavilion what s the first thing he should think but doesn t I really hope that you thought poison or Forrest Gump and Will may call you to form a trio That part was actually painful to read I had to force myself to forge through Yes the battle that followed was pretty neat but I ask again Why should the plot be advanced by a main character s so obvious blunder hide spoiler That was such a good start to the next arc in the overall series Definitely loved learning about Halt s background I think the ending was a bit rushed but I m pretty pumped to continue the series again now I m generally pretty stingy with 5 stars and if I m prefectly honest it s probably of a 45 stars but ya know what eff it Reading this book just made me happyIt picks p after Will s been a Ranger for a few years and he s actually helping some wide Somehow I d lost momentum on this series once Will became a full Ranger and had pretty much dec. Als Will op de jaarlijkse bijeenkomst van de Grijze Jagers arriveert blijkt zijn grote vriend en mentor afwezig te zijn Halt is op onderzoek in het westen van het rijk en als hij iteindelijk terugkomt heeft hij sle.
Read The Kings of Clonmel
Nd I loved seeing that blossom Also Horace just really grew as a character in this book He has matured so muchOverallthis was another fantastic seuel but I don t expect any less of John Flanagan now I look forward to Halt s Peril and seeing of Clonmel The Kings of Clonmel Ranger s Apprentice 8 John FlanaganThe Kings of Clonmel is the eighth novel in the Ranger s Apprentice series by Australian author John Flanagan It was released in Australia on 4 November 2008 While at the annual Rangers Gathering Will is informed by Crowley that Halt will not be able to attend as he is investigating things in the west of the country A mysterious group of people are going around recruiting people and stealing gold in an nlikely fashion Meanwhile Halt is watching the group who are acting in a small village called Selsey in Araluen although not governed by any fief He manages to stop them from burning their boats Halt finds that the plot to build a golden altar is fake they are stealing the donated gold and making the altar out of wood that will then be coated in a thin layer of gold He manages to capture their leader and e Everytime I read books from this series I come away thinking the same 4 things1 John Flanagan is really not that great of a writer2 The story line is very predictable with no surprises or The Executives Vengeful Seduction (Australian Millionaires, unforseen twists3 I have a hard time believing that a character like a ranger in this book could be so smart one moment and then so dumb the next The same thing applies to their abilities Read all my reviews on GoodReads ate the last review I wrote of The Kings of Clonmel so here we try again It has been ages since I last read a book from the Ranger s Apprentice series but I am trying to go and finish some series finally so here I was with The Kings of Clonmel Especially how this fit into the timeline I would not be able to tell since it was such a long time ago I read part seven It was however the same kind of story I would have expected I m always a bit wary when the main characters seem to be the only ones to deal with any kind of problems as is certainly the case here I just decided to not let it bother me too much and I much enjoyed reading it It clearly is the setp of some things spanning multiple books and I am curious to see where this is going This one and book 9 are two of my favorites of the series The cult aspect of the book might make some people ncomfortable because it plays with truth but it doesn t bother me because it clearly shows it is a cult and that s how cults work Distorting truth for their own ends Things I love about this book Halt Horace and Will all traveling and working together These books are best when that happens The major plot twists Like Horace everyone assumes Halt s claim in the Icebound Land not going to say what that is due to spoilers is a lie BUT that s not exactly the case. De zes koninkrijken van Hibernia zijn al ondermijnd Het zesde koninkrijk Clonmel loopt nu gevaarHalt Will en Arnaut gaan op pad om de orde te herstellen Kunnen de geheimen it Halts verleden hen helpen bij hun missi.
