I just feel the need to explain the 2 stars rating hereI ve been reading the Ranger s Apprentice series written by John Flanagan for the past two years thanks to my good friend Kara This is the final book The Emperor of Nihon Ja and I spent the entire night reading it instead of going to bed HahaI don t think I ve ever done a book review for this series because I ve always been relatively impartial about it it s an okay book for me Not something I would buy myself each time it comes out but it s an intriguing read with characters that develop throughout the series and interesting if sometimes cliched plotlinesBut something in the last book of the series irritated me so damn much I actually had to sit down and write itSo the basic premise for the 10th book is this the Emperor of Nihon Ja is usurped from his throne so our heroes go and save him You know how that ends Anyway along for the ride this time is Evanlyn a girl we ve met in the previous books and Alyss Will s childhood friend turned sweetheart Will is our main character the titular Ranger s Apprentice But this isn t about himThe books have established in the past 3 4 books that Alyss and Will are together probably for a few years or Now when Evanlyn and Will were featured in the same book together way back in book 3 it was shown that Evanlyn was interested but Will only saw her as a friend and some spoiler reasons which I shan t go into and that romantic thread was cut offCut to book 10 where Alyss is still constantly jealous over Evanlyn I m serious Alyss is a tall beautiful self aware woman who speaks multiple languages and can kayak and she spends most of the book being mean and petty to the ONLY OTHER FEMALE CHARACTER IN THE BOOK THANKS TO A LONG AGO CRUSH WHOSE ROMANCE NEVER EVEN HAPPENEDI mean hello I was seriously so annoyed Every time I flipped over to the parts of the book which had their POV it was always like that And even Evanlyn who could have just cleared it up that she wasn t interested in Will far earlier in the book just responds to this in the same manner They are both so hostile to each other which I just cannot understand Every time it switches to their POV there is always a mention of how much they cannot stand the other girl I would have understood if the characters were teenagers But these two women are around their early twenties I cannot imagine them fighting over a guy like that Especially since it s established that Alyss is a level headed character and Evanlyn while impulsive has very good instincts All throughout the book I was like What the fuck author WHAT THE FUCK I mean of course in the end everything resolves itself but wow so they had to fight a gigantic monster together in a life or death struggle before they can actually see eye to eye They spend months preparing for a war in a fortress as roommates you re telling me things couldn t have somehow resolved themselves within that timeframe SERIOUSLY I have to be about 50 pages before the book s resolution before the two of them become friendsI m just really disappointed with how John Flanagan treated these two amazing women in his book He s featured them both as holding out on their own in their own adventures and even in this book they do that but they can t get along with their fellow women I mean this jealousy and hostility is completely against their character I can t believe he even let it be the defining point of these two women in the bookThis sort of portrayal gives me a headache Please Women do not fight over men as much as movies and books like to think There is plenty of common ground Just because women are as stereotyped this way doesn t mean you have to keep encouraging itPlus it even makes canon make no sense Will and Alyss have been together for a while and she s still jealous over this childhood crush that happened probably five or so years ago I just find it so unrealistic So Alyss happens to be a perfectly capable diplomat who can stay calm in dangerous meetings but she s irrational when it comes to WillJust AAAARRRGGGHHH This book left a bad taste in my mouth which I wish it hadn t It s the last book in the series and I wanted to enjoy it Instead I got this I liked Alyss and Evanlyn so much when they both got their time in previous books and I was so excited to see them in this book and I got this
