download (1)Will is forced to overcome his fear of Wargals, the foot soldiers of the rebel warlord Morgarath, as Araluen’s army prepares to battle Morgarath’s forces.

This book was just as good as the last one. Maybe even better. I loved how suspenseful and dramatic this book was. We got new characters, new settings, and epic battle scenes. If that is not enough to wow you there are also stories of friendship, family, and epic plot twists. If that is still not enough to make you want to the read the book then you are a hopeless case. Just please read this book. It will be worth your time. 

The characters were very funny and I loved them. We got to meet lots of new characters as well, who have backstories and are well fleshed out. We get the story from 2 different perspectives. Will and Halt are separated from each other for most of the book so we hear about each of them. And their friends are accompanying them. My favorite character in all of this was Evanlyn. She was so brave and cunning. She was awesome. I also enjoyed Halt and how he solved problems. There are some things that make you laugh no matter where you are and what you are doing. What Halt does is one of those things. So the Rangers are pretty funny and they are funny while being deadly at the same time. I don’t know how that happens. If you enjoy a good laugh then these books are for you. And I think that most people enjoy a good laugh. 

The plot was very interesting and in depth. You knew that something was going to happen and since it was a third person perspective you knew more then the characters did. So sometimes you were wondering how the characters didn’t get it. I loved how intense some scenes were and how after that they could just relax and get a cup of coffee. The book was paced just right. Not to fast and not to slow either. The setting was also described very well. It was right on that line of being perfect and overdoing it. Lucky for me they didn’t over do it. This book is an example of the perfect middle – grade adventure novel. So please read it. 

I loved this book. It is so intense and mysterious. Please read it. Please also fill out my survey. You can find the link on my about page. Thanks for Reading!!!! Have a Great Day!!! -Annalee and Buttons
