Ranger’s Apprentice Book One: The Ruins of Gorlan by John Flanagan


I thought I would do a “guy” book review for a change and this one is great!! This book is about an orphan named Will. He is small for his age and therefore can not train to become a warrior, the highest respected job in the land. Luckily at age 15 Will is chosen to become a Ranger. The Rangers are like the FBI or CIA of today’s time. They assist the warriors in defeating enemies, but always do so with secret skills like moving without being heard and spying. Many of the people believe Rangers possess magic, but it’s really just super awesome war skills. Just as Will is learning his new profession, Morgarath, Lord of the Mountains starts gathering evil warriors in preparation to fight Will’s homeland. Is Will ready to fight? Will he be able to handle the “evil” Morgarath has gathered? Can they defeat Morgarath? Check out this book to find out!

If you enjoyed any fantasy books like Harry Potter or anything with a “magical” twist, you’ll enjoy this book. And if you like this book, there are four more in this series and they get better and better!


See you in the library! 🙂
