Publisher's Summary

When Halt and Crowley discover that the ambitious Morgarath has been infiltrating the Rangers in order to corrupt the Corps, the young Rangers travel north to find Prince Duncan, seeking a royal warrant to stop Morgarath before it is too late. By weakening the Rangers, the most powerful force in support of the King, Morgarath plans to steal the throne.
Yet when Halt and Crowley arrive in Gorlan, they discover just how close Morgarath's scheme is to success. Morgarath has a plan to discredit the prince and alienate him from his father. At the same time, the Baron of Gorlan has been conspiring to win the trust and admiration of the Council of Barons to further his plan. If the young Rangers are to prevent the coup from succeeding, they will have to tread a dangerous path, which leads them to a thrilling climax at the annual tournament at Gorlan, where a series of bitter duels must be fought and won.
This origin story brings listeners to a time before Will was an apprentice and lays the groundwork for the epic battles that will culminate with The Ruins of Gorlan and The Burning Bridge - books 1 and 2 of the Ranger's Apprentice series.

Another Great Book!

A great listen for any fans of John Flanagan, as good as any of his other books. In regards to the extra audio between chapters 5 and 6 that others have commented on, Audible have been contacted and made aware of the issue. There is nothing missing from John's book and it is likely Audible will just contact the publisher for a corrected version very soon.

Mistake in recording

This would have 5 stars from me, but there seems to be a mistake in the recording somewhere around chapter 6.

The review:
Our family loves John Flanagan's books, and this new series promises to be just as beloved. I'm enjoying getting to know a young Crowly, and my 12 yo says Flanagan's descriptions of dinners make him hungry.

John Keating is one of my favorite readers and is an excellent fit for Flanagan's style.
