Will has dreamed of being a warrior but he is too small. Instead he possesses the skills of a Ranger. He embarks on an adventure where utilizes his skills against Morgarath, the Lord of the Mountains of Rain and Night.
My ten year old read this book to himself and really enjoyed it. He read 1/4 of the second book in the series (The Burning Bridge) but is stopping (see "warning").
-We own book #1.
Guided Reading Level: U (5th-6th grade)
Warning: Towards the end of the book the word "damn" is used frequently. Its usage bothered my son immensely so he is not going to continue reading the series. In all fairness the library has the book labeled "Young Adult" so that should have been an indicator it contained some mature content.
