They have always scared him in the past—the Rangers, with their dark cloaksand shadowy ways. The villagers believe the Rangers practice magic that makes them invisible to ordinary people. And now 15-year-old Will, always small for his age, has been chosen as a Ranger's apprentice. What he doesn't yet realize is that the Rangers are the protectors of the kingdom. Highly trained in the skills of battle and surveillance, they fight the battles before the battles reach the people. And as Will is about to learn, there is a large battle brewing. The exiled Morgarath, Lord of the Mountains of Rain and Night, is gathering his forces for an attack on the kingdom. This time, he will not be denied. . . .
Perfect for fans of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, T.H. White’s The Sword in the Stone, Christopher Paolini’s Eragon series, and George R. R. Martin’s Game of Thrones / A Song of Ice and Fire series.

Good follow-up to harry potter
This book blew my mind! After just finishing the Harry Potter series, this book was amazing. One of those books that you will keep on reading for hours on end. Would recomend this to anyone who has just finished Harry Potter. Or anyone else. It was a great follow-up to Harry Potter. Over all:
Pls make a movie
I really wish that John Flanagan would agree to make a movie based on his books on,y. If the director made the movie exactly like tho book and made no changes bcuz the last movie i saw that was based on a book I read was the lightning the if and I hated the movie
