  • 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.

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.

    October 1, 2006
    Gr 4-8-Right from the start, listeners will become engrossed in the first book (Philomel, 2005) of John Flanagans projected series (Philomel Books, 2005), which is reminiscent of Tolkien minus the allegory. On Choosing Day, when wards of the castle become apprentices, 15-year-old Will doesnt get his first choice of attending Battle School, where knights are trained. Instead, he is apprenticed to Halt, the mysterious Ranger, whose lessons on stealth and intelligence gathering lead Will to a new understanding of honor and valor. As the evil Morgarath is planning a war and killing off the kingdoms leaders, Wills courage and determination are tested. Filled with rich detail and plenty of edge-of-your-seat thrills, Flanagans word choice and writing style lend themselves to the quasi-historical time period and setting. The characters are developed believably, only veering slightly into stereotypes with the bullies at the Battle School. John Keatings erudite and compelling voices make this well-paced story come alive. Listeners will eagerly await the next installment in the series. A fine choice for middle schools and public libraries."Charli Osborne, Oxford Public Library, Oxford, MI"
