I heard of this book from my younger sister, this was her big series after the harry potter books. Its an adventure book with the main focus being on a young boy named Will. Will was always short for a 15 age old, the fact that he never knew his parents made life in Castle Redmont worst. After a big war between King Duncan and Morgarath, children where left without both parents. Arald, Baron of Castle Redmont gave these kids a home and on their 15 chose a job for them to become apprentices. Rangers have always scared Will, with their dark cloaks and shadowy ways. The villagers believe that the Rangers practice magic that makes them invisible to ordinary people. What he didn't know was 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. Because of the village rumors when Will found he was chosen to be a Rangers apprentice, he first thought this was a punishment. Will soon learned, 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. And this time, he will be hard to stop. I really liked this book and I'm reading the rest of the series of Ranger's Apprentice. I would give this book to anyone who likes Harry Potter or Hunger Games.
