His life depends on his keen intelligence and quick reflexes, because evil is lurking - the Great Enemy, Morgarath, is plotting her revenge and return to power.

For those uninformed as I was...YA book, means Young Adult Book. Well Duh! Can you tell I don't text either?
I am not a young adult (55 yrs old), but I really enjoyed this book.
Do you want to be a Ranger or be the over glorified Warrior with the potential of being Knighted? At first look, most boys would choose the Knight.
This book is about each group. How the boys train, mature and learn life's lessons.
In the end we realize how they differ, but are each equally as important and respectable.
Actions speak louder than words (Titles).
No sex, no romance, but kept me interested the through out the whole book. I look forward to listening to the next in the series.

I really liked this book!!

I used to work in a bookstore and was in charge of the kid's section, so I've been looking at this one for a while. When the last sale came up, I got it and it was great! The action is good, the characters believable and the villian is really bad, as all villians should be.
While I realize this is a kids' book, I enjoyed it and would recommend to everyone for a fun read.
