Ranger's Apprentice #01: The Ruins of Gorlan

This book is an amazing book if you’re looking for something to drag you into the pages and feel like you’re actually there. The adventure you’ll experience while reading this book is like no other. Along with all of the other books that the author John Flanagan has published. The time and detail he spent putting into this book really shows itself within the first few pages that you dedicate to this series. If you like fictional series that carry on for multiple books that seem like they’re never ending then this is the series for you. The adventure never stops!
Some of the things that I personally like about this book and series is that the story is based on a kid about my age, 14, who starts off without knowing who his real parents are. The only thing he knows is from what he’s heard from other people talking about his father and about him. "His name is Will, his father died a hero, please take care of him." His ultimate goal in life is to be just like his father, but when the disappointing news comes that he isn’t able to be a knight, he sets his eyes on another opportunity that comes to him that will change his life forever. From then on, he will become just as notorious as his father had become and if you read the rest of the series, all the spontaneous adventures will come to you as well.
