The book is about a ninja-like person called a ranger. Rangers are extremley quite and are great with the longbow and throwing knives. But enough about the ranger. His apprentice is a 16 year old boy named Will. I liked the part were the knight and the apprentice got in a fight. I liked this because it was kinda cool. I recomend this book to any one who likes fantasy because the auther's desription of it. it a great book and it made me want to read the rest.
