Anybody read this series?

et in the mythical land of Araluen, the series follows the adventures of Will, a small and lively 15 year old boy living in mediaeval Castle Redmont.

Rejected for training as a warrior-knight, Will is apprenticed instead to the Ranger Corps – a mysterious group who act as the King’s eyes and ears throughout Araluen and beyond its shores.

As an Apprentice Ranger, Will is trained to be an expert archer and knife thrower, as well as learning the skills of silent, unseen movement, tracking and concealment. Gradually, a bond develops between the garrulous, inquisitive Will and his grim-faced mentor, Halt – renowned as one of the greatest of all Rangers.

Based on a collection of short stories originally written to encourage the author’s son to enjoy reading, the series is alive with action – battles, boar hunts, inhuman enemies and loyal friends. It’s exciting and fast moving. Humorous at times, spine chilling at others.
