THE RUINS OF GORLAN by John Flanagan

Unknown-4

Book 1: THE RANGER’S APPRENTICE

They have always scared him in the past—the Rangers, with their dark cloaksand shadowy ways. The villagers believe the Rangers practice magic that makes them invisible to ordinary people. And now 15-year-old Will, always small for his age, has been chosen as a Ranger’s apprentice. What he doesn’t yet realize is that the Rangers are the protectors of the kingdom. Highly trained in the skills of battle and surveillance, they fight the battles before the battles reach the people. And as Will is about to learn, there is a large battle brewing. The exiled Morgarath, Lord of the Mountains of Rain and Night, is gathering his forces for an attack on the kingdom. This time, he will not be denied. . . .

Comments: This is an epic fantasy for young kids, though I truly enjoyed it. I really like Will and I like the whole chosen person, apprentice/master relationship that may epic fantasy story lines have. This really is a great start to a interesting series.
