Ranger's Apprentice


Ranger's Apprentice
The Ruins of Gorlan
By John Flanagan

As the wards of Castle Redmont line up in a row, the craftmasters look them over. The wards of the castle are 15, the age of choosing, The choosing was when the craftmasters who needed an apprentice chose who they would take. Will, a small boy wanted to go to battleschool, because his father had died a hero. When the battlemaster rejects him, he is chosen to be a ranger.

This book was one of my favorites. There was enough fantasy to make it excition, but not too much to make it far out. The story was filled with suspence from start to finish, and there were enough details to allow me to picture the scenes. Great book.


Ranger's Apprentice
The Burning Bridge
By John Flanagan
When Gilan, Halt the Ranger's first apprentice shows up in the middle of the night, needing two companions, Will and his knight apprentice friend, Horace, go on an adventure to deliver an important message to a neighboring kingdom. When Will, Horace, and a newly found companion have to split up from Gilan, they find a major problem in the upcoming war plans. The army is in the wrong place...
Another suspenceful story that will grip you to the end. Will is faced with challenges that are harder than his last adventure, and Horace is faced with a task that means certain death. The details were once again great.
If you could chose what craft you would learn, what would it be?
If you saw a ranger horse, would you try to get on it?
If you found a girl in the middle of your path, would you take her with you, where ever you were going?
Please give me your comments and answers to this post.

Do you think that Halt will be able to keep his promis and find will? Does He know where the Scandinavians live?

well, finally some people talk!lol, i was waiting to start a discussion!anyways, i think halt will rescue Will but he will bring Horace along with him to do it. I think halt might die but then it would be kinda of cut off short for will's training then again halt could die and halt's last apprentice could take will under his wing.
