I’d give this book five stars for enjoyment but three for how good a book it was.
Parts of this book are the usual fantasy tropes. Will is an orphan who is bullied and isn’t as strong as the other orphans who is then taken in by a mentor and finds he is good at something. He then has to help defeat an evil baron who wants to invade the country and uses magically enslaved beasts. He shows he is a hero and is offered the chance to become a knight but refuses.
But the rest is well done and original. Apart from Morgarath’s beasts, and in later books the Ranger’s ability to communicate with their horses, there is no magic. The world is based on medieval England, and although some details have been changed is fairly similar. In this world there are Rangers in the employ of the king who are extremely proficient in archery, knife throwing, unseen movement. The author goes into detail about the weapons, training and battles and this is mostly very well done. It is well researched and not boring. The conflicts are well done and interesting. Halt is an interesting and well developed character. The other characters are decent.
After the second book the series improves. The are none of the stereotypical fantasy tropes and the focus is more on the battles. The series is set over a number of years and most of the books are individual or two books in a short period of time. Some of the books are set in different countries. The characters all undergo good character development. A lot of the characters and the way people of different countries are portrayed is stereotypical. The author breaks stereotypes but shows them in the first place in an exaggerated way as the norm then creates one character that defies them. The author also seems to forget some details from earlier books. There is some romance but not too much that happens later in the series. The descriptions of the battles might be considered violent but probably isn’t too bad.
Overall it’s a good series that improves in later books. It is worth reading if you are interested in medieval warfare and the like but might be boring otherwise. ( )

Durante a vida inteira, o pequeno e frágil Will sonhou em ser um forte e bravo guerreiro, como o pai, que ele nunca conheceu. Por isso, ficou arrasado quando não conseguiu entrar para a Escola de Guerra. A partir daí, sua vida tomou um rumo inesperado: ele se tornou o aprendiz de Halt, o misterioso arqueiro, que muitos acreditam ter habilidades que só podem ser resultado de alguma feitiçaria. Relutante, Will aprendeu a usar as armas secretas dos arqueiros: o arco, a flecha, uma capa manchada e.. . um pequeno pônei muito teimoso. Podem não ser a espada e o cavalo que ele desejava, mas foi com eles que Will e Halt partiram em uma perigosa missão: impedir o assassinato do rei. Essa será uma viagem de descobertas e aventuras fantásticas, na qual Will aprenderá que as armas dos arqueiros são muito mais valiosas do que ele imaginava.

The setting, characters, and plot of this book are all fantastic. Rangers sound very intriguing, and I look forward to following Will on his journey to become one.
I really like the relationships formed in this book, and the respect the characters show each other (other than the relationships that cause the conflicts in the story, of course!)
A great read for older kids and even adults. ( )

This book was part of World Book Night 2014, and the book I was assigned as a Giver.

There is something that any reader who is thinking of picking this up to read should know; it is the first in a series of books, and when I series I don’t mean 4 or 5 books, this one stretches out over 12 instalments. Also for a YA fantasy novel this one really is a good cut above the others I have read in this genre, so much so that I sat and read it in one sitting.

This book was a complete and total surprise for me; I was expecting the usual coming of age teenage angst filled book that would have me wanting to throw it against the wall in parts, but this was definitely not the case. I would like to say it was the characters and their development that had me hooked, and they were very well written, but it was the complete package of characters, theme and plot that did it for me.

Our main protagonist is a typical boy, he’s into climbing, mischief and the occasional fight but he’s also very smart, not overly so that he comes across as cocky or arrogant, but just enough to make the reader realise that this boy is going places. His is not the only character that this Author treats well, and brings the reader round to liking, he treats the main characters peers in the same way too, with a skilful pen and a lot of insight. The main character has a mentor, and I really liked this man; he is aloof, rarely smiles and seems to have the weight of this fantasy world on his shoulders. As the novel progresses we see how the relationship between Master and Apprentice grows and matures, and how this also affects the way the relationship between the main characters peer changes. Very well written and believable, these characters are people that new or inexperienced readers could soon be drawn to and want to read more about.

The storyline itself is told from the point of view of the main protagonist, and it moves along in an easy fashion, suitably picking up pace as the events narrated and occurrences dictate. As well as being a great adventure fantasy novel, this book is also filled with subliminal messages about loyalty and honour, doing what is right and also touches on the subject of bullying. It is full of suspense, action and some heart-stopping moments that will keep even the most reluctant of readers’ turning the pages until the end. The reason this review received 4 thumbs and not 5; I just didn’t need to get sucked into another series of books right now, especially one of this length. Seeing as I have though it looks like there will be some major reading sessions ahead.

I would highly recommend this book for people of all ages who like an epic fantasy, but I think it would be especially suitable for novice or inexperienced readers who have an interest in fantasy. At just 249 pages it is not long enough that would lose interest, but full of enough adventure to have them wanting to continue reading.

I expected this to be a Lord of the Rings rip-off, but it wasn't. Not enough action through most of the book to satisfy me, but when the action started, near the end, it was fun reading. Main thing with it being a juvenile book is the lack of serious violence, and the lack of deep themes. But it was fun. ( )
