Publisher Comments:

The international bestselling series with over 5 million copies sold in the U.S. alone!

Several years have passed since the apprentice and his master, Will and Halt, first met, and Will is finally a full-fledged Ranger with his own fief to look after. The fief seems sleepy?boring, even?until Lord Syron, master of a castle far in the north, is struck down by a mysterious illness. Joined by his friend Alyss, Will is suddenly thrown headfirst into an extraordinary adventure, investigating fears of sorcery and trying to determine who is loyal to Lord Syron. As Will battles growing hysteria, traitors, and most of all, time, Alyss is taken hostage, and Will is forced to make a desperate choice between his mission and his friend.

Perfect for fans of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, T.H. White’s The Sword in the Stone, Christopher Paolini’s Eragon series, and George R. R. Martin’s Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice and Fire series.

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!
