Publisher's Summary

Five years have passed since the Skandians and the Araluans made their treaty, and Will has finally become a Ranger, with his own fief to look after. He soon learns that even sleepy little islands have problems to keep him on his toes. Then he and his old friend Alyss are thrown into a terrifying new adventure, investigating the truth behind rumours of sorcery in a remote northern fief. As he stands in Grimsdell Forest, with the horrific, ghostly Night Warrior looming over him, Will must ask himself one question: is there a rational explanation... or does sorcery really exist?

    "Great story, great narrator"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, the story is great and I love the narrator.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The narrator. He's an excellent voice actor!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene is when Will enters Grimsdell Woods for the first time.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The Ranger. The sorcerer. The temporary king. All men of myth and legend. What's real? What's fake?


    Any additional comments?

    Having listened to both William Zappa (the Australian narrator) and John Keating (the US narrator), Zappa is tons better. I like how he reads and some of his pronunciations of names are truer than Keating's (mainly of Evanlyn - Zappa says

    "As good as the previous"

    Enjoyed this book just as much as all the others. Just a note though, this is part one of two.

    "Fun read"

    While not my favorite in the series i still really enjoyed listning to this book. It's the first of a 2 part story within the series so there is a lot of setting up the story and discovering who the bad guys are. If you are listning to all the books and have just finished book 4 I'd suggest listning to book 7 first as, although published later, that story takes place before this one.
