Ranger's Apprentice #05: The Sorcerer of the North by John Flanagan
Ranger's Apprentice #05: The Sorcerer of the North

dillon.king96, June 9, 2010

Will, now a full fledged ranger, thinks his newly appointed fief is rather calm and somewhat boring but he knows that he is a new ranger and that he is not going to be handed one of the kingdoms trouble spots. but when he is gets a mission to investigate an account of sorcery he must go north to investigate. this book is full of mystery and supposedly magic. the fifth book in the series starts to delve into the mystery genre and it held my attention through to the end and into the next book. Although all of that is great the best part is the subplot of the romance between will and former ward mate Alyss. WARNING, THIS BOOK CAUSES SLEEPLESS NIGHTS, AND A FEELING OF PURE SUSPENSE!

"His name is Will, his father died a hero, please take care of him." so said the note that was attached to Will's cradle. when he was left at the doorstep of a Baron Arald. Will a boy of now fifteen is going to the choosing day where all the wards of that year gather to be a singed to a craft master to become there apprentice. Will always wanted to be a warrior, an apprentice in battle school, but when he denied that because of his size, the mysterious ranger Halt and gives the baron a piece of paper concerning his future. desperate to know what the piece of paper said, Will broke into the barons office where he was caught by Halt and is told he is to be an apprentice ranger. This book contains a fun, funny, and full of action and adventure. Also there are a lot of references to the middle ages. This book may not be the longest book but it's so good you'll want to read the others.

The Book of Three (Chronicles of Prydain #1) by Lloyd Alexander
The Book of Three (Chronicles of Prydain #1)

TARAN wanted to make a sword; but Coll, charged with the practical side of his education, decided on horseshoes. And so begins Lloyd Alexander's first book in the Prydain series, the Book of Three. If you enjoyed the Hobbit then you will definitely enjoy this book. Taran, the newly promoted assistant pig-keeper, makes his first mistake when he chases after the escaped oracular pig which he was supposed to take care of. Through chasing the pig across the land he gets into to a larger adventure then he ever imagined. This book made me have mixed emotions, at some points I felt I was trotting along with Taran and his friends. This book is defiantly worth the read. At times it could drag along and bore me but those times ended quickly. to tell you the truth I was not satisfying
