This is an outstanding adventure tale and very well written. Okay I will admit it. I am an adult who read this book. Believe when I say I as old as I am, I got caught up in this story.

The story is about a man named Halt who chooses an apprentice named Will. They soon learn to respect each other. Halt is a Ranger who teaches Will how to shot a longbow, use knives to throw, make himself invisible to others so he can hear what is going on in the kingdom. Halt's teaches Will not only survival skills, but how to relate to a bully who has pestered Will in school. Will learns many of life's lessons from Halt who has plenty of experience as a Ranger.

Naturally there is an evil man who wants to take over the kingdom. Also there some creatures who will cause trouble for the Ranger and his apprentice. Halt can easily relate to Will's feelings and is an understanding man.

There is plenty of action, adventure, wit, and character charm in this book. I would highly recomment it for any school library. It is an excellent teaching tool for a child who does not like to read. The story moves fast, the characters are people you care about, and the dialogue is excellent.

Higly recomment for the young reader and older reader too.

    Fan of the series, but not this offering

    I took a short break from this series after enjoying the first four books, so I was excited to get back into the action of book #5. Unfortunately, that's what was missing from this one. The story was slow to get moving and when it finally did get interesting it just proved to be setting the stage for the next book. I have a feeling this should have been condensed and combined with next book in the series. I guess I'll have to read on to find out, but I hope I am not disappointed again. I would hate to think this series has run its course.
