Publisher's Summary

The tunnels will open again tonight. This time, we’re not strong enough to stop it.

Will has always dreamed of becoming a knight. Stuck as a lowly village boy with no dreams or aspirations, when he’s summoned to train as a squire in the mighty castle of Alamore, it seems too good to be true. He’s determined to prove himself to the other squires that he trains with every day.

But there’s much more to becoming a knight than meets the eye. After stumbling upon a secret network of passageways hidden beneath the castle, Will uncovers a group of long-forgotten enemies of the crown. As old alliances with other kingdoms begin to fracture and their uneasy peace comes to an end, Will finds himself thrust headlong into a brewing war - and he soon realizes that more than luck brought him to Alamore.

Will must unravel the secrets lurking in the shadowy halls of Alamore and find a way to stop a seemingly inevitable war. But the answer lies with a man even more mysterious than the passages he roams. A man known as the Ranger of Kings....

If you like gripping medieval fantasy adventures with a dash of mystery and a ton of danger, then you won’t want to miss the first book in the William of Alamore series. Listen now!

Ranger of kings

This book is a fun and actually very informative story. I was caught up in the story line right away with the mysterious opening!! I found myself cheering on Will and his friends and laughing at their antics throughout the book. The narrator did a wonderful job!! I loved his accent, it felt like you were right in the mist of all the action!!I find it amazing that the author at the time was 12!! I definitely recommend this book to young adults on up!! So looking forward to reading the second book in this series.

An action packed adventure

A well written and excellently narrated book. I struggled a bit with the first two chapters, but the story quickly settled into a good rhythm with easy to follew action scenes, an unpredictable story line and character development that doesn't disappoint.

It's a must-read/listen!

A great story

Poor Will had a rough life. Squire training was the best thing to happen to him. With the help of the knights & his friends Will managed to survive. He witnessed a lot of killing and survived a brutal attack from his own father. A story full of despair, courage and friendship.

Overall, awesome.

This book was a very good read. It was easy to get indulged in the way it was written. Some of the scenarios were unbelievable, but overall, the book was realistic and a great read. I was hopefully for a clean, Christian read, and so was upset to find at least two dozen minor swear words in it. I would not let my children read it, because of that, but it is still worth the read for normal people who are not strict like me. I recommend getting it hardback, and not narrated, for the narrator was horrible. It was difficult to find a good volume for the book because the narrator pronounced the letter "S" very shrilly. Some people he narrated had voices that were too quiet and some were too loud. It did not tarnish the merit of the book, however, and I still highly recommend it.

Great Start to a New Medieval Adventure Series

I was pleasantly surprised by this story and I will be having my teenage sons read it next. This was a pretty clean medieval adventure with a little bit of bad language but nothing extreme or over used (no f bombs), violence was moderate with the battles and details are given but it isn't too graphic and the little romance equated to simple attraction. Content and writing style I would say this is geared for more the male reader 4th grade up to adults.

This is a story of a 12 year old boy who ends up being made a squire, he becomes friends with the other squires and it's really a story of their adventures with their knights, coming of age, learning to be honorable and courageous men. It's well written, has a great flow and you quickly find yourself drawn in and rooting for Will and his friends. The narrator does a fantastic job with the voice differentiations and acting, I did feel he was a tad slow in parts so I did turn up the speed to 1.25 which was perfect for me. If you like medieval adventures or D&D then this book won't disappoint.

Ranger of Kings

Becoming a knight is a long dangerous road. When Will has the opportunity to begin taking those steps, he jumps at it. But will he be able to survive all that c ok mea his way?

C. J. R. Isley really went all out with building this story. Not only was there a lot of action, but there was also a great deal that went into building up the characters and their relationships. I hope to see more from Alamore.

Jordan Westengaard did a great job with bringing different voices to the many characters. I enjoyed the different accents. There was a bit of inconsistency in the volume and background noise. I could definitely tell when different recordings were pieces together.

Ranger of Kings

I have listened to this book and my children have listened to it as well. The book has a good story line and you can get a good visual from the audio and story. I would recommend for teenagers that prefer to listen to a story rather that read a book.

A decent listen

This was a decent listen about a young boy wanting to be a knight but things go sideways when he discovers a network of tunnels and enemies. The story flowed fairly good and came to a decent conclusion. I get this audiobook was aimed at teenagers rather than adults but don’t let that put you off the decent world building and characters within the story
