The Ruins of Gorlan, by John Flannagan
In this book, a young orphan (named Will)is inducted into the secret society of the rangers. He learns how to shoot a bow and throw knives with deadly precision. He lives with his master (trainer) Halt, until Halt decides to go hunting for a pair of mythical and dangerous pair of beasts, rumored to be under the control of an evil warlord. The story shows the development of Will, and his courageousness and quick thinking as he lights the two creatures on fire. Overall, Not bad, but aimed at a slightly younger age group.
