Produktbeschreibungen

Werbetext

The Emperor of Nihon-Ja is the tenth thrilling book in John Flanagan's Ranger's Apprentice series - over eight million sold worldwide.

Kurzbeschreibung

The international bestselling series with over 5 million copies sold in the U.S. alone!

When Horace travels to the exotic land of Nihon- Ja, it isn't long before he finds himself pulled into a battle that is not his - but one he knows in his heart he must wage. A kingdom teeters on the edge of chaos when the Nihon-Ja emperor, a defender of the common man, is forcibly overthrown, and only Horace, Will, and his Araluen companions can restore the emperor to the throne. Victory lies in the hands of an inexperienced group of fighters, and it's anybody's guess who will make the journey home to Araluen.

Perfect for fans of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, T.H. White’s The Sword in the Stone, Christopher Paolini’s Eragon series, and George R. R. Martin’s Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice and Fire series.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Lands to the east 19. April 2011
Von E. A Solinas - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The land of Nihon-ja has been mentioned a few times in the Ranger's Apprentice series -- a sort of fantasy version of Japan. And "The Emperor of Nihon-ja" takes us right into the heart of this distant land, with John Flanagan's usual mix of action, humor, clever plotting and slightly-altered versions of real-world civilizations.

Horace has been a guest of the Emperor of Nihon-ja, Shigeru. But as he's preparing to go back to Araluen, the Senshi warriors under Lord Arisaka suddenly rebel against the Emperor -- and Horace ends up accompanying Shigeru into the mountains. So Halt, Will, Alyss and Evanlyn (who have been overseeing training in Toscana) set out on a Skandian ship, heading straight for Nihon-ja to help their friend.

The journey to Nihon-ja has many dangers -- pirates, desert warriors, and squabbles aboard the Wolfwill. But the biggest danger is Arisaka's army, which is closing in on a remote mountain fortress where the Emperor is hiding -- and if he wins, Nihon-ja will be thrown into an era of brutality. And he's not the only terror lurking in this unfamiliar land...

"The Emperor of Nihon-ja" is apparently the last of the "regular" Ranger's Apprentice novels, and it seems like a fairly logical place for the main storyline to end. The main problem is that it does drag sometimes, especially in the first several chapters, which are bogged down by sodden horseback riding and traveling via Skandian ship.

However, things pick up once Halt, Will and Co. arrive in Nihon-ja. Flanagan's prose is nimble and descriptive, with smoothly realistic dialogue and some humorous moments (a villager accidentally says "bum" to the Emperor). But he also weaves in a load of tactical maneuvers, tricks and the occasional military stunt (the Macedon Phoenix). It makes the military conflict feel more REAL to the reader.

And Flanagan's characters have the warm, well-worn feel of familiarity by now -- it's like visiting old friends, whom you can depend on to always do the noblest, best things that they can. Will, Horace, Halt, Evanlyn and the feisty, boisterous Skandians are all pleasantly familiar, and he introduces some endearing people in Nihon-ja as well, such as the down-to-earth Shigeru.

And Flanagan wraps up the romantic subplots nicely for both young men, although somehow I just can't warm up to Alyss. She still just seems like an add-water-for-instant-love-interest.

While John Flanagan still has a couple more books to go, "The Emperor of Nihon-ja" is a thoroughly amusing, satisfying finale for the main storyline. Strong, pleasant and fun.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Weakest Book in the Series, Poor Series Conclusion 28. April 2011
Von Dylan Valliere - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Overall, I enjoyed The Emperor of Nihon-Ja, but I was quite disappointed with much of the book. I'll attempt to avoid any spoilers below.

I've read the whole Ranger's Apprentice series and enjoyed each book. This book felt much more like a stand alone story within the larger arc rather than a conclusion to the whole series. I don't regret buying or reading this final series contribution but it certainly wasn't the best of the lot. In fact, I think this was the weakest book in the whole series, even apart from the poor series wrap-up provided.

Several character and story developments felt forced--Princess Cassandra/Evanlyn's presence on the trip, especially without a larger support group, the presence and yet nominal participation of the Skandians, the inclusion of Selethen. In many ways, characters seemed included for utilitarian purposes (e.g. Skandians) or for sentimentality purposes (e.g. Selethen).

It also felt like Flanagan couldn't decide who the main character was: Horace or Will. The early part of the book are quite slow and feel more like grudging foundations for the story to follow. (It was so easy to see exactly where the story was going from some of the early scenes.)

The lack of communication between Will and Halt during military scheming phases was ridiculous. Seriously--Halt didn't already have the same idea Will had (given the book's early context)? And Will didn't include the heroic Halt when he had the chance to? The greatest heros are no the types that have to go it alone--they're willing and desirous of the support to be had.

The way language barriers were overcome seems contrived. (Seriously, dictionary study of a very distinct language and culture over the course of a year, on the side, and someone is ready to communicate?)

Previous books hinted at the future leadership roles that Will, Horace, and Alyss would play within the kingdom. This book did not give much insight into that...we are given a vague indication of Alyss' future, no detail on Will's, and little on Horace.

The lack of qualified support around the Emperor (necessary for the contributions of the main characters) stretches disbelief.

Even the excerpt on the back cover (which was great), was disappointing in context.

Positives: Still a fun read. The (slim) future-oriented glimpses at the end. The character Shigeru was wonderful and well portrayed. Seeing good triumph over evil.

Conclusion:
Honestly, this book is really only for those who have read the rest of the Ranger's Apprentice series. If you've read the rest, go ahead and get this one--you'll still enjoy it. Flanagan's final contribution to the series isn't a strike out but it's probably not even a double.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Military Advisors 16. Januar 2012
Von Arthur W. Jordin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The Emperor of Nihon-Ja (2010) is the tenth Fantasy novel in the Ranger's Apprentice series, following Halt's Peril. The initial work in this series is The Ruins of Gorlan.

In the previous volume, Will asks questions in Port Cael looking for the ship that took Tennyson and his cadre out of the kingdom. An innkeeper sent him to the Black O'Malley at the Heron tavern. Will offered O'Malley a gold coin for the offloading point of Tennyson and his cadre.

The smuggler took the coin, but refused to divulge the location. The next night, Halt, Horace and Will wait for O'Malley's arrival. After a minute or so, Halt enters the Heron with Will and Horace behind him and confronts the smuggler.

O'Malley set two crewmen on will, but Halt loosed Horace on them. Both crewmen were soon on the floor unconscious. Halt grabbed O'Malley by his collar and hauled him across the table. O'Malley was convinced to provide the information and even offered to take him there.

In this novel, Will is an Araluen Ranger. He is assigned to Seacliff fief.

Halt is a senior Ranger, dangerous and feared. He is married to the Courier Lady Pauline.

Horace is the Oakleaf Knight, a prodigal with a sword. He is also Will's best friend. He loves Princess Cassandra.

Alyss Mainwaring is a Courier, working for Lady Pauline. She is a close friend of Will. In fact, she loves him, but is just waiting for him to propose.

Cassandra is the Princess of Araluen. She met Will under the name of Evanlyn Wheeler, but is really the daughter of King Duncan of Araluen. She loves Horace.

George Carter is a long-standing friend of Will, Horace and Alyss. Now he is a lawyer.

Seley el'then is a captain in the Arridi Guard in Al Shabah. Foreigners find it easier to call him Selethen.

Gundar is a Skandian captain. He and his crew are well known to the Rangers and Alyss.

In this story, Halt and Will are visiting Toscana during negotiations between Toscana and Arridi. While Alyss is thrashing out the fine details of a treaty, the Rangers and Selethen watch a demonstration of Toscan military tactics. As usual, Will asks many questions and learns that the Toscan style of combat doesn't require extensive training.

After returning to their quarters, they are visited by the Princess Cassandra. She has come to Toscana unofficially and is using the name of Evanlyn. She tells them about the diplomatic visit of Horace and George to Nihon-Ja and the disappearance of the knight.

George had returned by ship to pass information on to King Duncan. Some senshi lords had revolted against the Emperor. Horace fled with the Emperor into the mountains. They were looking for a semi-mythical fortress called Ran-Koshi.

She asks the Rangers and Alyss to accompany her to Nihon-Ja. Selethen decides that he wants to go along. They take the Skandian duty ship that had brought Evanlyn to Toscana. They are pleased to greet Gundar and his crew again.

The Wolfwill is a new design for the Skandians. It uses fore-and-aft rigs and can tack against the wind. It is amazingly fast compared to the ships that the Araluens know.

The Wolfwill gets them to Nihon-Ja is only a few weeks. They inquire at the port where George had boarded a ship and learn that Horace may be at Ran-Koshi. Then they sail the Wolfwill closer to the fortress.

Their local contact goes ashore to learn more about local loyalties. Before he returns, a group of locals takes them in custody and carries them away. Then they reach Ran-Koshi.

This tale involves the Araluens in Nihon-Ja politics. They grow to like the Emperor and despise the leaders of the coup. The locals also learn to like the gaijin.

The novel has in a satisfactory conclusion. The next installment in this sequence has not yet been announced on Amazon.

Highly recommended for Flanagan fans and for anyone else who enjoys tales of medieval societies, armed conflict, and a touch of romance. Read and enjoy!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great ending to a great series 7. September 2011
Von Polar Bear - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
"The Emperor of Nihon-Ja" is the 10th installment is John Flanagan's Ranger's Apprentice series. I've loved all of his books, and this one is no different. I won't ruin the plot for you, but Horace, Halt, Will and their friends must protect the emperor from a revolt. The story is based loosely on medieval Japan, and the details of their weapons and fighting styles are accurate and interesting. One of Flanagan's strengths is his ability to paint vivid images with his words. His characters are very real; I find myself thinking about them while I'm on my way to work and wondering what they're up to. This book has a fantastic battle scene at the end and it shows what true leadership really is. If you've read the previous 9 books in this series, you won't be disappointed.
