A good book. Lacking in originality, but with good morals and lessons and humor.
A fifteen year old Will becomes the apprentice to the mysterious ranger, Halt during the midst of a rising war.
The morality is pretty good in this book - it mentions Will having climbed up the wall a few years ago to steal some cakes, but he told the truth about it.
Halt tells Will that he never would have become his apprentice if he had lied about it.
Will and Horace get into a fight, but they make up later having saved each other.
Not any that I could make out - it is not an allegory.
There is little violence, and what violence there is is not very graphic.
Drug and Alcohol Content
A kiss between Alyss and Will. Very short. You could fit all the 'mushiness' into one short paragraph.
Crude or Profane Language or Content
Four swear words in the book, mostly D--n.
A fun book, though very much taken after the Lord of the Rings.(Rangers, the bad guy's name is 'Morgarath' instead of 'Morgoth,' there are 'Wargals' and not 'Wargs') but still a fun book, and very clean for being non-Christian.
