Publisher's Summary

Will is an orphan and a ward of the castle. He hopes to someday become a great hero. But he is a small boy, and only the biggest and toughest are selected as warriors. He has other talents though, and they catch the attention of the mysterious Ranger Halt. Will soon masters stealth and accuracy with the bow. His life depends on his keen intelligence and quick reflexes, because evil is lurking - the Great Enemy, Morgarath, is plotting her revenge and return to power.

    "best narrorator I've ever heard"

    The book was incredible in its own right, but the narrorator really made it on a level of its own.

    How well the story progress. Exciting from the beginning!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Will is my favorite character, he has ninja stealth abilities and he didn't know it until explained by Halt.
