Publisher's Summary

Will is small for his age, but agile and energetic. All his life, he has dreamed of becoming a great knight like the father he never knew, so he is devastated when he is rejected as an apprentice to Castle Redmont's Battleschool. Instead he is apprenticed to Halt, the mysterious Ranger whose uncanny ability to move unseen is thought to be the result of black magic. Reluctantly, Will learns to use a Ranger's secret weapons: a bow and arrow, a mottled cloak and a stubborn little pony. It may not be the sword and battlehorse he longs for, but when Will and Halt set out on a desperate mission to prevent the assassination of the King, Will finds that a Ranger's weapons are not so useless after all....

Very Enjoyable

I'm just so happy with this book I'm tempted to pretend it's a stand alone book. The story is very well written and kid friendly. The only thing I don't like is that the way the voice actor portrays the kids. they are 15 but he makes them sound much younger. However that does help maintain a friendlier atmosphere wich makes it more suitable for younger audiences.

finished in one day, kept my attention.

Kept my interest and rather liked the narration, though this is my first audio book in quite a while.

Excellent job

loved it, I found the music between chapters jarring at first but I grew to like it!
