Synopsis: In an isolated area in the north, Will needs to find some fighting men to help him recaputure the castle taken by Sir Keren who plans to hand the castle over to the Scotti, giving them easy access to the rest of Arulen. And then there is the rescue of Alyss that needs to happen too. Can Will find the help he needs and recaputure the castle before it's too late.

What I thought: Yet another excellent book in this series. Really, if you have a boy aged 10 or above who likes a good story, this is an excellent series to direct them to. As with a lot of these types of series, the situations are getting a little more dangerous, the concepts a little more complex. Like Harry Potter, it's a series that grows with the reader and is well worth the read.

Recommended for: those who want a quality YA fantasy series.
