For years, its people have felt secure. but the scheming hand of the dark lord has not been idle. . . . on a special mission for the rangers, will and his friend Horace, an apprentice knight, travel to a neighboring village and discover the unsettling truth: All the villagers have either been slain or captured. but why? Could it be that Morgarath has finally devised a plan to bring his legions over the supposedly insurmountable pass? if so, the king?s army is in imminent danger of being crushed in a fierce ambush. And will and Horace are the only ones who can save them.

Gilan leaves them to get a message to King Duncan about events in Celtica. Will and his companions discover a trick of Morgarath's to come at the king's army from the rear. Can they save the kingdom and defeat Morgarath once and for all? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer Davis | 5/26/2012

    " The 1st half of the book the author again develops more character relationships and deeps their relationships together. The 2nd half of the book is quite the page turner, very intriguing and suprising twists. Careful it does have a cliff hanger ending so make sure to have the 3rd book handy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessalyn King | 4/29/2012

    " Read after Michael Scott, I found the historic-ness to be a bit phony, but it was still enjoyable, especially once the action got going towards the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashleigh | 3/15/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff | 12/14/2011

    " I am really liking this series. I am surprised at how much I really enjoy these characters. I keep being surprised by how great some young adult fiction really is. These are great books for anyone who loved Lord of the Rings or other adventure series. Well-written, good characters, and a quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 7/31/2011

    " This book was just as good as the first. I loved it. It's a great adventure with likeable characters, and it really kept me guessing and on the edge of my seat. I couldn't put it down. I can't wait to start the next one-this one is a cliffhanger. "

    " a little slow but very good "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sophie710 | 5/21/2011

    " This was good. I like Halt even more, and I now really like Gilan. Not quite as funny as the other one, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 5/17/2011

    " We see more of Horace in this book and the character of Evanlyn is introduced. The dark lord Morgareth and the looming war bring The Lord of the Rings to mind. Ends with a cliff-hanger! "

    " Great 2nd book in the series. Very easy read and well written. This series is my "read when I don't want to have to think" series. "

About the Author
Author John Flanagan

John A. Flanagan grew up in Sydney, Australia hoping to be a writer. It wasn’t until he wrote a highly uncomplimentary poem about a senior executive at the agency he worked, however, that his talent was revealed. It turned out one of the company directors agreed with John’s assessment of the executive, and happily agreed to train John in copywriting. After writing advertising copy for the next two decades, John teamed with an old friend to develop a television sitcom, Hey Dad!, which went on to air for eight years. John began writing the Ranger’s Apprentice series as a way to encourage his son, Michael, to enjoy reading. He currently lives in the suburb of Manly, Australia, with his wife.
