In this sixth iteration of the twelve books in the Ranger’s Apprentice series, you’ll find yourself
on the edge of your seat yet again. But not because Will is about to attempt a foolish siege of a
castle with the help of a medieval drug dealer (sorry “healer”), some pirates who tried to rob him
a month earlier, and a friend whose sole purpose is to provide emotional support in the form of
enemy destruction, but rather the ups and downs of Will’s (unconfirmed) love life. This book is
another (expectedly) good one with the ups and downs of a struggling young adult relationship
which mostly consists of Will shooting message arrows through Alyss’s prison window. Talk
about an obstacle. Though I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: this book like every other in the
series is a great read, and if you haven’t read it I don’t know what you’re doing. This book again
goes into a more intrigue based story which demonstrates Will and the other characters ascent
into adulthood. For younger readers it’s an excellent source of entertaining story telling. For
adults, it’s a way to stress yourself out as you apprehensively await your own child’s ascent into
adulthood. But whichever group you’re in, I would recommend this book and every other book
in this series. Especially the first one. I think it’s important to start the series with the first book
