What does it mean to earn the Silver Oakleaf? So few men have done so. For Will, a mere boy, that symbol of honor has long felt out of reach. Now, in the wake of Araluenâ's uneasy truce with the raiding Skandians comes word that the Skandian leader has been captured by a dangerous desert tribe. The Rangers are sent to free him. But the desert is like nothing these warriors have seen before. Strangers in a strange land, they are brutalized by sandstorms, beaten by the unrelenting heat, tricked by one tribe that plays by its own rules, and surprisingly befriended by another. Like a desert mirage, nothing is as it seems. Yet one thing is constant: the bravery of the Rangers. In this red-hot adventure, winner of the Australian Book of the Year Award for Older Children, John Flanagan raises the stakes on the series that has already sold millions of copies worldwide.

Kidnapped during a desert skirmish, Erak is being held for ransom, and Will, along with Halt and Princess Cassandra, are charged with his rescue. The well-protected group sets off, but then experiences a series of problems that no one would wish on their worst enemy. Encounters with enemy tribes, wild storms of sand that obscure every thing in sight, and more make the adventure even more challenging. This is the seventh book in the bestselling Ranger's Apprentice series.
