Mankind puts its faith in many things?gods, kings, money?anything for protection from the world?s many dangers. When a cult springs up in neighboring Clonmel, promising to quell the recent attacks by lawless marauders, people flock from all over to offer gold in exchange for protection. But this particular group, with which Halt is all too familiar, has a less than charitable agenda. Secrets will be unveiled and battles fought to the death as Will and Horace help Halt in ridding the land of a dangerous enemy.

The worldwide phenomenon is back with a gripping new adventure. Yet for these Rangers, the peril is only beginning . . .

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.

    Before I start, I'd like to say that the Rangers Apprentice is my favorite series! I got to say, although this book was really good, it wasn't one of my favorites because it wasn't as suspenseful as it normally is. It certainly didn't hook me as much, but it was still better than a lot of other books from different series!! It was really clever how he set it up with the Outsiders and all of that - the ideas were amazing! And I really loved the book overall, it just took me a little longer to read because it didn't make me want to keep reading - I mean, just at certain points for this particular book I kind of wanted to take a break, which isn't usually like me with the Ranger's Apprentice. I'll still give it 5 stars because it's a RANGERS APPRENTICE and all the books are just SO good!! And this one was too, it just wasn't the best out of all of them, if you know what I mean. But it was really smart how he set up the whole plot and story, and I think by the end I was hooked, just in the middle I got a little lost. Anyways, you should still read this book because it is REALLY GOOD!!! I'm in the middle of Book 9 right now (at a super suspenseful part, so I like HAVE to keep reading... NO SPOILERS!!!) :P

            This book has a lot of action and fighting in it. It is a great book with the exception of a few bad words. The rest of the books in the series are all great. If you are into action and adventure then this is the book for you!
