Publisher's Summary

War has broken out in the North. The Corrupt Lord of the Ice has invaded Norghana with a host from the Frozen Continent. Will the king and the Rangers manage to stop him, or will they die in the attempt?

Darthor is seeking to dethrone King Uthar. He is on his way to conquer Norghana and take the crown. He has invaded the kingdom and has a host from the Frozen Continent at his command; Wild Ones of the Ice, Snow Trolls, Albino Ogres, Semi-Giants, Tundra Dwellers, Arcanes of the Glaciers, and creatures unlike anything anybody has ever seen before.

Uthar gathers together his armies and prepares to repel him. But not all the Norghanian nobles are with the king. The Western League does not support him, and they want to regain the crown for the West, for the Olafstones.

Lasgol and his partners will have to overcome an arduous second year of instruction at the Camp if they want to become Rangers one day. The tests will be far harder and the effort required much greater. Rivalries will surface, but so will companionship and even love. He will find out that he does not know the whole truth about what happened to his parents or about his new friend Camu. New mysteries, which he will have to investigate and solve, will arise and drive him to confront life-and-death situations.

Will Lasgol and his friends survive the second year of training? Will they survive the war? Will he succeed in solving the mysteries that surround him? Will he find betrayal...and discover the true enemy?

It got better by much!

The first book has some holes in the plot and characters. This book the plot and characters grew and got better by the page. Mr. Bank brings the book alive. His voices are spot on.

Great YA Fantasy

Both my 8 y.o. son enjoyed this epic fantasy novel. The narrator was excellent. His voices are distinct and each character has a unique sound.
Great story. There were a few standard plot devices and details, but mostly very creative YA novel. I believe that this 2nd book in the series is even better than the 1st. We will continue to read this series.
A very enjoyable read.

Do you have an editor?

I feel like there is no editor in this book? It’s great and all, but sometimes there are plot holes. Like during the summer test you said the panthers had eliminated the foxes, and then later you said the foxes were fighting the bears etc. Also in the later books there are a couple plot holes. That’s the only part that gets me a little bit.
This book is really great though and the characters are very unique. I love the ranger aspect and the ways all this works. It is a masterly idea and wonderful writing. Thanks for letting me enjoy all of these books.

First Book is Better

I really enjoyed book one. this book (2 in the series) felt like an alternate universe of Harry Potter meets Darth Vader & Luke Skywalker. I feel like in the end, Harken will be the 'Professor Snape' of the story. in an effort to not spoil the story, that's all I'll say about plot.
Decent character development. Lasgol is a solid hero with his faithful friends and ofcourse, Camu. Lasgol is my favorite character with Olf, his old caretaker/master coming in as a solid second.
Lots of action and adventure, a fast pace hero story. however it lacks the depth of a true epic. Lackluster world building. The relationships have a childish quality without the depth of real life.
I will keep reading! Imaginative "monsters" and lots of magic. Hopefully book 3 pulls it all together.

Great expressive narration! I enjoyed the range of voices the performer uses and the pace is perfect.

Weak literature

There is something that Pedro does right, the book isn't unreadable. Pace certainly, maybe something else also. But the plot and characters are more for pre school than YA.

Great series

I’m loving this series and have already purchased the next book. The author is pumping out the books too which gives plenty of content to dive into. So happy I stumbled upon this epic tale.

Fantastic follow up book!

I love this series. Moving onto the third book now but each one so far has managed to tell it’s own great story, while leaving enough interesting threads to make me want to go straight to the next one.
I could see a great film / series on the back of these too!

Enjoyable.

A really enjoyable second novel in this excellent series. The entire book is well written and most creative, reminding me somewhat of " The Lord of the Rings " trilogy. Really looking forward to the next episode.

Again, an excellent narrator.

Entertaining with a great twist in the storyline

This series is pretty good, but it follows the same basic storyline as many other books similar to it, the classic underdog rising, finding out his family secrets and stopping or winning a war.
The book itself is engrossing as there are many questions floating in the air, and a jaw dropping ending to finish it off. I am looking forward to listening to the next book, and finding out the truth of the kings secret!

Harry Potter meets LOTR. In no means as epic, but great for adventure seekers. Great performance.

A bit disappointing.

I AM enjoying this series and have just purchased the next book, though they are WAY TOO SHORT making it a very expensive series to buy, getting through 1 book per day, I would much prefer 30+ hours.
BUT I felt we went significantly backwards in two ways....minor spoiler
.
. BTW The narrator is really great and does a great job at creating individual characters.
.
.
. At the start of this book Lasgol looks to have matured significantly over the previous years' experience, getting his home back, getting a house attendant, avoiding revenge and progressing with his magic, but once he gets back to the training camp, he regresses, making stupid, childish decessions, their fitness has regressed and what really annoyed me is later on when they were debating who to believe and whether the king is a good person, they completely forget the king's atrocities against the ice people, deciding he must be a nice person because he does a few superficially nice things. This really frustrated me, I was thinking, use your brain, he's not a good person...

Just generally I feel like the main characters are 12 or 13 year olds, not 17 or so years. Given the experience's over the previous year together, they should be very mature adults but I really don't feel this, especially in the case of the big guy and their irrational fear of magic despite it having saved their lives and only been used for good.

A really great Series!

I'd recommend this series to any young listener. a stroy line that isn't always predictable keeps you on the edge of your seat!
