It had been a long, hard three days.
Will had been on a tour of the villages surrounding Castle Redmont. It was something he did on a regular basis, keeping in touch with the villagers and their headmen, keeping track of the everyday goings-on. Sometimes, he had learned, little pieces of gossip, seemingly trivial at the time, could become useful in heading off future trouble and friction within the fief.
It was part of being a Ranger. Information, no matter how unimportant it might seem at first glance, was a Ranger’s lifeblood.
Unconfirmed accounts of a group of Araluen warriors – tales of adventure, battle, and triumph over evil – have spread for centuries throughout the known world. Most notable is a clan shrouded in mystery, phantom warriors known as the Rangers. Two names pass the lips of every storyteller: Halt, and his apprentice, Will. They and their comrades in arms are said to have traveled throughout the kingdom and beyond its borders, protecting those who needed it most. If true, these rumors can be only part of the story. Only now, centuries after these men and women walked the earth, do we have confirmation of their existence. Behold The Lost Stories, Book 11 in the Ranger’s Apprentice epic.
To be honest, I stopped in the middle of this book and went directly to the 12th book. (For this reason, there are no excerpts that I will post) Though there is one story that you must read: The first few chapters. They are about Will’s parents, and how he came about. This book explains much more. I do not recommend this book. The only part I found interesting was about Will’s parents.
