Eraks Ransom (Rangers Apprentice, #7) by John FlanaganDer Waffenstillstand Araluens mit den Skandianern ist noch frisch, als König Duncan die Nachricht erreicht, dass Erak, der Anführer Skandias vom Wüstenvolk der Arridi gefangen genommen wurde. Kurz entschlossen brechen der Waldläufer Will und seine Freunde Walt, Gilan, Evanlyn und Horace auf, um den Skandianer zu befreien. Doch Sandstürme, unbarmherzige Hitze und feindselige Nachbarvölker machen die Mission zu einem Wettlauf gegen die Zeit ...
When the Skandian Oberjarl is taken hostage during a raid on the desert land of Arrida, his second-in-command, Svengal, asks the Araluans for help. Halt and Will must go with him to deliver the ransom and secure Erak's freedom, but a royal presence is needed. The Princess Cassandra - or Evanlyn, as Will knows her - persuades her father to let her go with them. Horace and the Ranger Gilan round out the group to make sure that Evanlyn is well protected. But will violent sandstorms, warring tribes and danger at every turn keep them from reaching Erak in time?
This most recent addition to the Ranger's Apprentice series actually takes place shortly before the previous two books. Things are in a time of transition as this story opens. Will, about to complete his apprenticeship and receive his silver oakleaf is very apprehensive about going out on his own. But with Halt's impending marriage to Lady Pauline, the time is coming when Will will need to leave the nest. During the festivities, plans are put somewhat on hold, as word comes that Erak, Oberjarl of the Skandians and Araluen's ally has been captured in a foreign land.
