Alternate Title: The Sorcerer in the North
Quite some time has passed since the last book, as Will is now a full trained Ranger and setting to go on his first mission as a Ranger.
This book was for me a bit different from the previous ones. Will obviously is older, but sadly he doesn't get any training any more (That was one of my favourites parts in the book) and this also means we don't get to see a lot of Halt in this book. You can feel that this book is building up to something that will probably come in book six (which I haven't read yet; so I can't be sure), but this means that there are no great battles in this book. Still, it was a very enjoyable read, and I'm planning to read the sixth book soon (when I get the time and finally find that book in the library)
Note: I read a Dutch translation of this book
