6th Grade Entry - Ranger’s Apprentice The Ruins of Gorlan

6th graders at WOMS have been invited to post guest entries on my blog for YA books they’ve recently read. This is Kobe’s entry. Thanks, Kobe!

Ranger’s Apprentice The Ruins of Gorlan
John Flanagan
The Penguin Group

The Rangers keep to themselves. Some say they practice the dark arts, but now Will knows those are rumors and nothing more. Will at first wants to be a knight but his size makes it so he can’t. His curiosity, though, unlocks new doors like the door of the rangers. Will is soon battling monsters beyond compare as he fights the wicked Kalkara which it’s told hundreds of men have fought but all failed.

The main character, Will, has a small problem if he wants to be a battle school apprentice. He is very small for his age, he is smarter than all the other candidates (which is actually a bad thing) and he is curious.

I like the book very much. It’s action packed, a little romance here and there and it leaves it wide open for a sequel.

I think anyone who needs to just read would enjoy this book because it just keeps moving along.
