The Ranger's Apprentice
Flanagan, John. The Ranger's Apprentice. New York: Philomel Books, 2005.
Finding a good, interesting, entertaining book is a beautiful thing. Finding the first book in a series of good, interesting, entertaining books is an even better thing. I have been thoroughly enoying the Ranger's Apprentice series. This fantasy series follows the story of Will, an orphan boy who longs to be apprenticed into the battle school to become a soldier for the king. He is disappointed to discover that he has been apprenticed to a ranger instead. However, he soon learns that being a ranger is a more difficult job than he has bargained for.
I am enjoying the story of Will and the people he meets in his journeys. I may eventually tire of this series - my library's search engine tells me there are ten books already - but for now I am enjoying the journey.
