As for the ARCs, I'm giving the others away to commenters who leave suggestions for read-alikes for Ranger's Apprentice. I suggest it to my readers who devour series novels. I've suggested Judson Roberts's Viking Warrior series ---- any other suggestions?

John Flanagan's 6th book in his Ranger's Apprentice series, The Siege of Macindaw, is coming out this summer. I haven't read any of these, but this is a no-brainer to buy for the library since I have multiple copies of all the other books in this series and a number of fans eagerly awaiting the latest edition. Penguin was offering a free online version of the first book, The Ruins of Gorlan, until Feb. 15. Don't know if it's still available. I would have posted about it sooner, but I just got a couple of ARCs today. I'm saving one ARC to pass around to my students at school who love this series. Not only will it make me the best librarian ever with them, but I will only let them read it if they promise to do a review and then I will post the review on the library website. Hahahaha, I am diabolical and mercenary like that!
