It was a great book . I like it when Will and Alyss had their day . My favorite part was when Halt told them that Ferris is his brother and everyone was so surprised because Halt is one of a guy who give everyone the eyes

This book has a lot of adventuring in it.

You know you've found a TERRIFIC book series when after each book in the series you go "this was the best one yet".... Well, this was the best one yet!

Halt is a freaking prince of Hibernia!

The fact that we learn so much about our beloved Halt in this book warms my heart! I absolutely love him (I mean who couldn't) and his background really just made this book for me."

Halt throughout this entire book just amazes me. He was already a Bad-A ranger that you didn't want to mess with. Been through things that others cant wrap their minds around and through this book his creativity and the intelligence and imagination that you have to have as a ranger really shines through.

This book is where we understand the respect that Halt commands with simply walking in the room.

"A wounded man takes another man out of the battle- he has to fend to him." -Halt

 "If people think there's a reason you're in a place, odds are they won't bother to challenge you." -Halt"

Halt is the grumpy old uncle that everyone wishes they had! (Or at least I do!)
"If you're Halt's apprentice, you don't have a choice. You learn to shoot a bow, throw a knife, move silently and put honey in your coffee.

Ahhh so it begins. And I'm super jealous that I will never get to be apprentice too the great Halt."

I have fallen head over heels for Flanagan's world. As always the wit, ingenuity, and imagination of rangers continues to amaze me! It truely makes you take a step back and rethink how you make decisions in your own life.

I love the fact that we saw Horace character development more over the course of this book. We know and love Will deeply, and Horace has always been there and loved but not on the same level. I feel as though this book connects you closer to him.

..... And just how close him and Will are to one another. And to think they started out with Horace bullying Will. It just goes to show that the world is full of crazy surprises.

The Kings of Clonmel is AWESOME! Personally, I think it's the best book in the series, but I haven't read Emperor of Nihon-Ja, Lost Stories, or Royal Ranger, so it could change.
This book is impossible to put down, and full of awesomeness. If you're hesitating to get it, you totally should! Amazing book!
Mega thumbs up!

Another excellent addition to the Ranger's Apprentice Series. The Kings of Clonmel gives fans of the world created by John Flanagan a deeper understanding of both the characters and the countries surrounding Araluen.

I can't wait to read this book!!!! Ive read all the others and couldn't put them down!!

A book with brother reunions and arena battles; this book is great!!! I especially liked Will because he had to separate from the group again for scouting. He also caught the Genovesan with the drug. Ferris is very full of himself and he does not like Halt. With all this action, this book is really great!
