If you have any quick questions/info on the Ranger's Apprentice series, put it here.
I think my question spans all the "Ranger" books, but since I began by reading the original 10 books of the Ranger's Apprentice series, I will place it here and admin may move it as they decide.
As I said, I have read 'The Ruins of Gorlan' through 'The Emperor of Nihon-Ja' and now I have the remaining book in that series, 'The Lost Stories', as well as all 3 Royal Ranger books, the two Early Years books, and 5 of the 7 Brotherband books. My dilemma is that I would like to read and reread all of these intertwined series based on chronological order, including placing the short stories contained in 'The Lost Stories' where they would fit in that timeline, but I have been unable to find a listing anywhere on the internet that puts all of these books together in that order.
The closest I have found is this chronological ordering: 1 The Hibernian from Lost Stories; 2 The Tournament at Gorlan; 3 The Battle at Hackham Heath; 4 Death of a Hero from Lost Stories; 5 The Ruins of Gorlan; 6 The Burning Bridge; 7 The Icebound Land; 8 The Inkwell and the Dagger from Lost Stories; 9 The Battle for Skandia; 10 Erak's Ransom; 11 The Sorcerer in the North; 12 The Siege of Mackindaw; 13 The Kings of Clonmel; 14 Halt's Peril; 15 The Outcasts; 16 The Invaders; 17 The Hunters; 18 The Emperor of Nihon-Ja; 19 The Roamers from Lost Stories; 20 Purple Prose from Lost Stories; 21 Dinner for Five from Lost Stories; 22 The Bridal Dance from Lost Stories; 23 The Wolf from Lost Stories; 24 And About Time, Too from Lost Stories; 25 The Slaves of Socorro; 26 Scorpion Mountain; 27 The Ghostfaces; 28 The Caldera; 29 The Royal Ranger; 30 Forward/Afterward from Lost Stories
I would like input from other fans what they think of this ordering and also where to place the missing books, 'The Red Fox Clan' and 'Duel at Araluen' into this timeline (and any other books or stories I might have missed).
I don't remember all the different titles in The Lost Stories so I just put together this list of all the other books. 1. The Battle of Hackham Heath 2. The Tournament At Gorlan 3. The Ruins of Gorlan 4. The Burning Bridge 5. Icebound Land 6. Battle for Skandia 7. The Sorcerer in the North 8. Siege of Macindaw 9. Erak's Ransom 10. Kings of Clonmel 11. The Outcasts 12. The Invaders 13. The Hunters 14. Slaves of Sorraco 15. Halt's Peril 16. Scorpion Mountain 17. Emperor of Nehon-Ja 18. The Gohstfaces 19. The Caldera After this, I am not sure, but this might work, 20. The Royal Ranger 21. Return of the Temujai/The Redfox Clan
In the Flanagan Wiki Fandom thing there's a timeline that sounds fairly accurate.
"No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgement, you shall condemn. This is the Heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from me." says the Lord. Isaiah 54:17
"I, the Lord, have called you in righteousness. I will take hold of your hand and will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the gentiles." Isaiah 42:6
