Ranger’s Apprentice: The Lost Stories (Book 11)

The Lost Stories is the "last" book in the Ranger's Apprentice series. However, it covers a wide time period from before the main books to in between some of the tales. There are a number of different "episodes" in the story. We get to see the origin of Halt before he became a ranger. We also have a recurring theme of preparing for a wedding speech. There are funny stories, like the lady who manages to beat down thieves with kitchen utensils, as well as more conventional adventures. The stories also help explain some interesting aspects of the series. In one, Will goes to kill and ends up needing to retire his horse. We learn that rangers go through new horses, but keep the names. I've only read the prequel books, and the stories were well accessible.
