Publisher's Summary

The international best-selling series with over five million copies sold in the US alone!

For years the Kingdom of Araluen has prospered, with the evil lord Morgarath safely behind the impassable mountains. For years its people have felt secure. But the scheming hand of the dark lord has not been idle....

On a special mission for the rangers, Will and his friend Horace, an apprentice knight, travel to a neighboring village and discover the unsettling truth: All the villagers have either been slain or captured. But why? Could it be that Morgarath has finally devised a plan to bring his legions over the supposedly insurmountable pass? If so, the king's army is in imminent danger of being crushed in a fierce ambush. And Will and Horace are the only ones who can save them.

Perfect for fans of J. R. R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, T. H. White's The Sword in the Stone, Christopher Paolini's Eragon series, and George R. R. Martin's Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice and Fire series.

why bother

don't bother wasting your time. most the series isn't available in US. why would you even bother paying these two books if you are not going to include the rest. 1 star until rest are available
