Still one of my favorite books ever! This amazing book of adventure and courage is a great read and one I highly recommend. I love Will, Horace, Halt, and all of the characters introduced in this book as well. The ending does leave on a cliff hanger so make sure you have book three at the ready once you finish it! ( )

These books seem so much shorter than when I first read them in Junior High. Horace plays a much bigger part here, especially at the end with the epic battle. Will is so cool as a main character. I think the landscape described in these books is intricate and the pacing is well-planned. Time to read the next one again! ( )

2nd book in the series was a quick read for me. I let awhile pass after reading the first so I needed to reacquaint myself with the characters. When I was back into it I enjoyed the book though maybe not quite as much as the first book. ( )

Group read.

Although his preliminary manoeuvres have been stymied, Morgarath is continuing his preparations for war against the kingdom of Araluen. Will, the Ranger’s apprentice of the title, and his mentor Halt are involved in getting the kingdom and their home of Redmont fief ready for defence. Gilan, Halt’s former apprentice who is now a Ranger himself, comes to them to request that Will join him on a mission to the kingdom of Celtica to invoke the mutual defence treaty. A third member will be needed for the mission since the Celts live by the motto “One man may be deceit. Two can be conspiracy. Three is the number I trust.” so Halt suggests that Will’s old nemesis, Horace, would be a good candidate.

Once they cross the border, however, the three realise that something is very wrong in the land of the Celts and discover that Morgarath’s plans run deeper than anyone had realised and, in fact, have been in motion for some time already. And so a desperate race is on to warn the Araluen army before Morgarath’s forces are fully deployed.

This is a good sequel to [The Ruins of Gorlan]. It is well written, flows smoothly and the characters are likeable. Although the story revolves around Will, I like the way we are shown different points of view so we can see the bigger picture and it has been crafted so the change between points of view of different characters is logical and not confusing.

I liked being shown the training that Gilan gives both Horace and Will. The action scenes are compelling; I’m no Ranger or Battleschool apprentice but they seemed believable to me. And I still like the humour.

“Horace eagerly urged his horse forward, to ride level with the two Rangers.

‘Thank you, sir,’ he said gratefully. Gilan cocked an eyebrow at Will.

‘Polite, isn’t he?’ he mused. ‘Obviously manners are well taught in the Battleschool these days. Nice to be called “sir” all the time.’

Will grinned at the kindly meant jibe. Then the smile faded from his face as Gilan continued thoughtfully.

‘Not a bad idea to have a bit of respect shown. Perhaps you could call me sir as well,’ he said, turning his face away to study the treeline to one side, so that Will couldn’t see the faint trace of a grin that insisted on breaking through.

Aghast, Will choked over his answer. He couldn’t believe his ears.

‘Sir?’ he said finally. ‘You really want me to call you sir, Gilan?’ Then, as Gilan frowned slightly at him, he amended hurriedly and in great confusion: ‘I mean, sir! You want me to call you sir ... sir?’

Gilan shook his head. ‘No, I don’t think “sir-sir” is suitable. Nor “Sir Gilan”. I think just the one sir would do nicely, don’t you?’

Will couldn’t think of a polite way of phrasing what was in his mind


The two slight criticisms I have are that Will and his friends are still somewhat paragons of excellence and that unfortunately, the blurb on the back (of my edition) jumps right to the middle of the book which is a bit annoying (but hardly the author’s fault) because I spent the first half of reading the book anticipating those events.

The book does end on a bit of a cliffhanger - but, hey, there are ten more books to go in this series so it’s no big surprise.

4-4.5 stars ( )
