A terrific series to get boys reading. This book is a bind-up of the first and the second in the Ranger's Apprentice series - perfect for boys aged 8+ with plenty more titles in the series to keep them reading.

Synopsis

Ranger's Apprentice 1 & 2 The Ruins of Gorlan & The Burning Bridge by John Flanagan

Book 1: The Ruins of Gorlan : Will, you have been chosen. You and you alone. You will become the eyes and ears of the kingdom, learning to move silent as a shadow. Your arrow will fly true and your sword will be swift, risking your life to protect your people. You are the Ranger's Apprentice. Are you ready?

Book 2: The Burning Bridge : Will, you are learning well, but you are soon to be tested. For years the Kingdom has lived in peace, while the evil lord Morgarath has lived beyond the impassable mountains. But he has not been idle. Now you must embark on your most dangerous mission yet. The King's army has been deceived, and are headed for a brutal ambush. And you are the only one who can save them...

About the Author

John Flanagan began his working life in advertising before moving to freelance writing and script editing. He has written TV jingles and comedy-drama for television, and is one of Australia's more prolific TV writers. John wrote the first book in The Ranger's Apprentice series to encourage his twelve-year-old son to enjoy reading. Michael was a small boy, and all his friends were bigger and stronger that he was. John wanted to show him that reading was fun, and heroes weren't necessarily big and muscular. Now in his mid-twenties, Michael is six feet tall, broad-shouldered and powerful - but he still loves The Ranger's Apprentice. John lives in the beachside Sydney suburb of Manly.
