John Flanagan to Release ‘Ranger’s Apprentice: The Lost Stories’

Author John Flanagan ended his popular Ranger’s Apprentice series this week with the release of Book Ten: The Emperor of Nihon-Ja. For fans who don’t want to let go of the series just yet, Flanagan will release Ranger’s Apprentice: The Lost Stories on October 4th.
