Review by

This sequel to The Ruins of Gorlan continues the adventures of Will and his friends and what happens when they go on a mission to talk to a neighbouring country and find instead an army intent on invasion.It's pretty predictable but fun.

Review by

In this second of the Ranger's Apprentice books, young Will and Horace accompany the ranger Gilan on an embassy to the king of the Celts of Celtica. However, trouble is never far away and the Ranger's young apprentice and his friends soon find themselves playing a vital part in preventing a devastating defeat in battle and saving a King's daughter.These books are fast moved, action packed and frequently laced with a subtle humour. There is nothing truly new about them, and will perhaps not satisfy adult readers as deeply as more richly imagined works - but they wil be ideal for their intended young adult audience, being books that draw a reader in and hold their interest throughout.Thoroughly recommended for ages 10-15, and not bad for readers of fantasy in general.
