Will, you owe it to your friend to find him.
Horace is missing. Months have passed since he was sent on a military mission and you, Evanlyn and Alyss set out to discover what has become of your old friend.
You find him in Nihon-Ja where the rightful emperor has been overthrown. Now you must face the highly trained Senshi warriors, while Alyss and Evanlyn must overcome their rivalry to seek help from a mysterious group of mountain dwellers.
The tenth book in the impressive Rangers Apprentice series and one that is a standalone title. It’s cleverly written, the characters outstanding and our young heroes are coming into their own guided by our old friend Halt who takes matters in hand.
As usual there is peril, some wonderful classic jibes as well as the demonstration of working together as they each come to the fore in their own way. Add to this some top notch combat, cracking prose and a wonderful upbeat end to the title and it’s made this a real pleasure from start to finish. Cracking fun.
