Ou Místo toho se dostane do učení k Haltovi tajemnému hraničáři jehož záhadnou schopnost neviditelně se pohybovat lidé přičítají černé magii Will se postupně učí používat zbraně hraničáře luk a šípy šedozelenou pláštěnku a houževnatého malého ponyho Ačkoli Will nemá meč ani velk This book was a pleasant surprise for me; I really had no expectations going in and I didn't read anyone's reviews beforehand so I ended up being completely blindsided by this awesome story which is definitely a good thing I'll admit I wasn't expecting much I figured I'd get a good time waster and a fun story but I never thought I'd be moved to tears by the honor loyalty and friendships forged within This is the story of Will an orphan raised with fellow wardmates and it tells the tale of his growth into a young man and Ranger who are the eyes and ears for the fiefdom At a certain age the castle wards each must choose a Craftmaster to study under such as the castle's chef Horsemaster or Battlemaster Young Will is a bit scrawny but he has always dreamt of becoming a mighty knight because although he never knew his father he believes he died the heroic death of a brave knight Unfortunately the Baron has other plans for Will and even though he's crestfallen at not being able to enter Battleschool he has a much important fate awaiting him the RangersWill is a great character not too smart not too cocky not too bratty but full of heart In the beginning we get to meet him when he's still living with his friends before they've all chosen their crafts and it's shown that the kids don't always get along There's a particular boy Horace who bullies Will relentlessly Will isn't exactly an angel though as he ends up mouthing off to Horace and riling him up constantly These two are at each other's throats for the majority of the book and it's fascinating watching their relationship change and mature Two of the scenes with these boys were the ones that made me tear up I don't know why it got to me but their camaraderie really turned into something special in the endI also really enjoyed Will's budding master apprentice relationship with the Ranger Halt Halt is a prickly character who almost never smiles He's brutal on Will but he does so because he sees his potential The last scene with these two at the end was another one that filled me with emotion because I couldn't help but feel proud for the two of them myselfWill's point of view is the main one throughout most of the book but we do get glimpses of what's going on in other characters' heads and up until the halfway point almost each chapter switches back and forth between Will and Horace though that didn't bother me at all I really enjoyed the fact that even the horses as well as some of the monsters had thoughts that we were privy to and I think this added some depth to the tale without being overwhelming or difficult to followThere are some really great themes throughout this story that I think are great for kids to read about There's the aforementioned bullying and teasing that eventually gets resolved there's emphasis on hard work and discipline and there's the stress placed on following your gut and doing what's right There are also monsters archery sword fighting learning to sneak around unseen like an assassin and all sorts of fun stuff that boys and some girls enjoy reading about I think this would be a great book for reluctant readers since it's action packed suspenseful and heartwarming as well It's the type of book you can't put down because you need to know what happens nextI really loved this book and I had no idea the wonderful story that it contained This is a middle grade epic fantasy that I think people of all ages can enjoy and I highly recommend you give it a shot Mango-Coloured Fish toho se dostane do učení k Haltovi Prithviraj Chauhan: The Emperor of Hearts tajemnému hraničáři jehož záhadnou schopnost neviditelně se pohybovat lidé přičítají černé magii
