Summary

Will is small for his age, but agile and energetic. All his life, he has dreamed of becoming a great knight like the father he never knew, so he is devastated when he is rejected as an apprentice to Castle Redmont's Battleschool. Instead he is apprenticed to Halt, the mysterious Ranger whose uncanny ability to move unseen is thought to be the result of black magic. Reluctantly, Will learns to use a Ranger's secret weapons: a bow and arrow, a mottled cloak and a stubborn little pony. It may not be the sword and battlehorse he longs for, but when Will and Halt set out on a desperate mission to prevent the assassination of the King, Will finds that a Ranger's weapons are not so useless after all....

Perfect Motivation for pre-teen readers

I've been trying to get my pre-teen son to read this series having bought it for my now teenage son ... this helped get past the sometimes difficult phase of "Getting into" the story.he listened wrapped to the first 8 chapters and then grabbed the book off the shelf!!! 24 hours later and he's reading the second bookl in the series!!



Joyful news for any parent trying to encourage young boys to give up their games consoles!

Most enjoyable

Listened to this book on the way to school every morning with 2 boys aged 7yrs and 12yrs. They were absolutely riveted and QUIET (yay!!). We could not miss a morning without the Ranger's.

Keith's Review

Enjoyed this story as it unfolded. It painted a clear picture of the characters and how they developed along the way. Left me keen to delve deeper into the series.
