Ranger's Apprentice #5: Sorcerer of the North
Will is just settling into his first post as a brand-new, just-commissioned Ranger when he is dispatched to deal with problems on the kingdom’s northern border. Though his keen senses and uncanny expertise with his knives and his bow are vital, Will’s success often hinges on his ability to assess the skills and intentions of those around him. The scenes involving Will, his mentor, Halt, and Halt’s mentor, Crowley, work beautifully to fill in background information, dramatize Will’s growing maturity, and entertain readers with clever dialogue. The Sorcerer of the North is a must-have volume for fans of the popular Ranger’s Apprentice series.
