This story ends on a cliff, with the plot wrapping up in Siege of Macindaw. An entertaining, adventurous, and heartwarming two-book tale of treachery versus loyalty, science versus superstition. One obvious moral here is that popular chaps aren't always trustworthy.
I like this narrator (Zappa) better than Keating, because he reads with a natural cadence and rhythm. I find that Keating pauses in places that are best for him to draw a breath, but not necessarily best for me to follow the drift (even though I like his voice and he reads fluently).
I don't like the musical intrusions at each chapter break. Obnoxious! If not for that, a 5-star narration. Zappa gets 5, but the recording studio gets 3.

You gotta love the never ending action, the deviousness of the enemy, the humor in the banter and teasing between fighting comrades, the refreshing way the plot uncurls (something hard to do today with the number of proven authors and the deluge of new authors) and the skill of new to us, narrator Zappa. No, I didn't go for door #1 with the advice of two readers reviews on the 2 identical books but different readers. Thanks! It was the winning choice: Frank Zappa. He did an exceptional job and made the transition seamlessly in narrators. Having said this, I will be making a difficult choice in the next book which is a "two-er" again because I really like both narrators. Can we have a hint? Does our choice influence which one stays? Do we have to be between 15 and 22 to vote since as of book 4, this series has become YA and author Flanagan "one of the most influential youth authors" created. This listener is 70 and likes the series very much! Does this mean I'm going thru my second childhood? Spend a credit whatever your age and find out how good The Sorcerer in the North is!

This is another excellent installment in the Ranger's Apprentice series and there are more to come!
This is my favorite book, I love it and read it all the time.
I only have one problem with it and that is William zappers singing...
However the experience was enjoyed and I will recommend
Any additional comments?
Im not sure why but this book and 'the siege of Macindaw' are my favourite books in the rangers apprentice series. Considering the amount of times Will has received commendation it's nice to know he is still reasonably humble and unsure of himself. Will can still admit when he needs help and even alows someone else to take control of a situation he is unfaliliar with. I'm not really sure what to say without giving to much away but this book ends on a cliff hanger, leaving you wanting more. It's necessary break and stops at a good spot.
