It took me long enough to actually do this part of the book. I've done this topic a little in my other reading logs, but never dedicated one specifically to explaining each character, so here you go. Will and Halt are advanced Ranger from Castle Araluen. They are both courageous and daring, seeing as they go on life threatening missions. Then there is Lady Pauline, whom I haven't had a time to introduce, and Alyss. They are not only Araluen Couriers, but also are the love of Halt and Will's lives. Halt and Lady Pauline are husband and wife and Will and Alyss are madly in love young adults, but adults nevertheless. They are both courageous, as the rangers, and loving and caring. Then there's Horace, the most important knight at Castle Araluen. He and Evalyn, or Princess Casandra, have crushes on each other, and make it obvious too. They are both full of adventure and love going on missions with Will, Halt, and Alyss. Now that the love birds are out of the way, let's talk about the remaining characters in this book. There is Selethen, from a desert town that saved Will's life in another book. He is fearless, unless it comes to someone he loves, and adventurous. Finally, there is Emperor Shigeru, who is an amazing leader who wants to give equal wealth to the poor as the rich. He is a risk-taker and an excellent leader. He leads the Kikori men, woodcutters, as an army to fight against another leader who apposes his ideas and wants to kill him to take his position. I'm getting too much into a plot discussion instead of a character discussion, so I'm going to stop here. Thank you for listening.
Tuesday, SEPTEMBER 20th, READING LOG #1, TOPIC CHOICE 3 - Plot
So far, in the plot of "Ranger's Apprentice: The Emperor of Nihon-Ja - Book #!0" by John Flanagan, the 6 main characters are deciding to let two people (the princess (Formally known as Princess Casandra, but has an alias name as Evanlyn) and a royal courier (Formally know as Lady Alyss), leave in a kayak to go over seas from a place in Japan back to Castle Redmont to get reinforcements to fight the upcoming war in the spring. It is currently winter and the heavy snowfall in the mountains where our heroes resign in will be enough protection from the incoming swarm of Japanese army. They currently have the place sealed and trapped, helping injured and abandoned soldiers and training them to resist to forward party. So far, they have the escape routes clear and safe. This will be the escape route for our heroes that will go back to Castle Redmont for reinforcements. The 4 other heroes, 2 Rangers,(expert Ranger Halt and his apprentice Will), A Redmont Knight (known as Horace), and a Desert Warrior friend(known as Selethen). The two girls are showing the others how safe the kayak will be for the trip. They really want to go and they feel up for the challenge. I will continue reading and make another log soon.
