The ruins of Gorlan
Part of the Ranger's apprentice series
The Ruins of Gorlanis the first thrilling book in John Flanagan's Ranger's Apprentice series - over eight million sold worldwide.
They have always scared him in the past - the Rangers, with their dark cloaks and shadowy ways. The villagers believe the Rangers practise 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'sLord of the Rings, T.H. White'sThe Sword in the Stone, Christopher Paolini'sEragon series and Rick Riordan'sPercy Jacksonseries.
