Now with help many miles away, Will and Horace are the only ones standing in the way of the dark lord’s plans.They have shown great skill and courage in their training, but how will they fare in the face of true evil?

A fun story with annoying writing...It's a good thing I'm a sucker for a fun story, because this would be a very unhappy review if the story were as juvenile as the writing in this book. A lot of people love these books, so maybe my standards are too high. And I get that it's written for 10-year-old...
This is the second book in the Ranger's Apprentice series by John Flanagan, and takes place some months after The Ruins of Gorlan. I enjoyed this book, the start is a bit slower than in the first book, but after they meet Evanlyn, the story really starts. Again there's a fight against big bad evil...
I really enjoyed reading this book and I have to say that I am officially a fan of the series.The ending really surprised me and I can't wait to read more.
This sequel to The Ruins of Gorlan continues the adventures of Will and his friends and what happens when they go on a mission to talk to a neighbouring country and find instead an army intent on invasion. It's pretty predictable but fun.
Diciamo 3 e mezzo come valutazione. Ci sono state alcune scelte forse un po' troppo buoniste, ma alla fine l'autore è riuscito a lasciare aperta la porta per un nuovi libri senza troppe forzature.Certi momenti però molto belli.
