Ranger’s Apprentice:Ruins of Gorlan is a thrilling start to the Ranger’s Apprentice series. It has an interesting and well-written story line. It starts by telling us about a boy called Will, and it tells us that he is an orphan, which makes his past seem mysterious. The book tells us about his friends, enemies, and goals in life, which makes him feel like he is a real person.
The book shows his struggles and talents throughout the story, and when Will discovers archery, it feels like a perfect match because of how Will’s personality was made. The book had me hooked within the first couple minutes of reading it. It was a bit complicated, but it’s still a good book.
