From John Flanagan, writer of the global bestselling Ranger's Apprentice-the first in a brand new prequel sequence that includes one among our favourite Rangers, Halt!
whilst Halt and Crowley detect that the bold Morgarath has been infiltrating the Rangers to be able to corrupt the Corps, the younger Rangers go back and forth north to discover Prince Duncan, looking a royal warrant to forestall Morgarath prior to it truly is too past due. by means of weakening the Rangers, the main strong strength in help of the King, Morgarath plans to thieve the throne.
Yet whilst Halt and Crowley arrive in Gorlan, they detect simply how shut Morgarath's scheme is to luck. Morgarath has a plan to discredit the Prince and alienate him from his father. while, the Baron of Gorlan has been conspiring to win the belief and admiration of the Council of Barons to extra his plan. If the younger Rangers are to avoid the coup from succeeding, they'll need to tread a deadly direction, which leads them to an exhilarating climax on the annual match at Gorlan, the place a sequence of sour duels has to be fought and won.
This foundation tale brings readers to a time sooner than Will was once an apprentice, and lays the foundation for the epic battles that would culminate with The Ruins of Gorlan and The Burning Bridge-Books 1 and a couple of of the Ranger's Apprentice sequence.
