Review Detail5.0 4
Will is a small orphan boy who dreams of joining the Battleschool. When he requests this assignment he is told he is too small and weak to be a knight, but he may be a Ranger, apprenticed to Halt.
I first saw this book when I was browsing the shelves at the library, and was instantly caught by the whole Ranger thing. It took me a long time to get around to reading it- I was rereading Lord of the Rings, after all.
This book is very good, but it would be best enjoyed by Tolkien fans, who may find it a little, shall we say, comical.
