Description of this Book

#1 bestselling author What really happened at Hackham Heath that made Halt a hero to the entire Kingdom? This is the prequel Ranger's Apprentice fans have been waiting for. When the former Baron Morgarath escaped to avoid punishment for treason, an uneasy peace fell on Araluen. But the Rangers know Morgarath will be planning his next move, and there are rumours he has recruited an army of savage, inhuman creatures. Newly crowned King Duncan must prepare for war. Halt prepares for a seemingly impossible task - climbing the deadly cliffs of the Mountains of Rain and Night and venturing deep into enemy territory to spy on Morgarath. Meanwhile, Crowley must ensure the Queen's safety as she undertakes her own perilous journey for the sake of her unborn child. Morgarath's Wargals seem unstoppable against Duncan's depleted army. The winner of this war could be decided by one wrong move. At the Battle of Hackham Heath, the fate of a Kingdom will be decided. The origin story of how Halt came to be Araluen's most famous Ranger - and how war will decide the future of the next generation - will thrill Ranger's Apprentice fans and new readers alike.

Author's Bio

John Flanagan's bestselling Ranger's Apprentice adventure series originally comprised twenty short stories, which John wrote to encourage his twelve-year-old son, Michael, to enjoy reading. The series has come a long way since then. Now sold to more than twenty countries, the series regularly appears on the New York Times Bestseller List and has been shortlisted in children's book awards in Australia and overseas. John, a former television and advertising writer, lives with his wife, Leonie, in the Sydney beachside suburb of Manly. He is currently writing further titles in the Ranger's Apprentice series. Visit John's website at www.rangersapprentice.com or the official Australian website at www.rangersapprentice.com.au. Piers Wehner trained as an actor at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, and graduated in 2009. Since then he has been constantly working as an actor, whether on the stage or on the airwaves. He won the BBC Radio Carleton Hobbs Bursary Award in 2009 and has since recorded numerous voice overs, radio plays and audiobooks.
