    WARNING THIS REVIEW IS SUPER RAMBLY AND PROBABLY NOT THAT GREAT Burning Bridge is the second book in The Ranger's Apprentice series It really picks up from where book one finishes continuing to follow the story of the characters we were introduced to and following a few Whereas the first book can be seen as boring for 80% of the book The Burning Bridge has a lot plot for the reader to immerse themselves in When I first read this book in 2010 I remember not being able to put it down staying up late by using my lamp and covering the cracks of my door with jumpers so no one would know obviously I was a big rebel The Burning Bridge focuses primarily on Will Gilan and Horace They are on a uest so to say to visit the Celtics in order to provide information about an upcoming war However upon arrival it is obvious something is amiss The Celtics who are stated to be clean people have left watch bases abandoned and not in the standard they would The trio continue further into villages to find or less the same thing only to learn they have been outsmarted Basically the plot line so much happens that I don't want to mention due to spoilers as well CharactersWith characters we get so many perspectives I can't really focus on certain primary characters in order to fill this section of my review What is needed to know is we get humour from each perspective As well as gaining insights between the trio and Halt back at the castle where he seems to be throwing Lords in moats World BuildingThe world building wasn't as vital or obvious in this book since so much had been established in the previous book It was still present however with how the author described the characters and added a slight magical twist to it all It was alluring in the sense it is both historical and fanatical OverallOverall this review is incredibly scattered but I woke up at 5am so I'm giving myself a break personally I enjoyed this book immensely Seeing Alyss and Halt interact was hilarious as well was finding out about him and Lady Pauline I absolutely adore the characters of this series and would without a doubt recommend it to people who are unsure if they should pick it up It's worth the read I'll find you Will

    What an amazing seuel Also Will you just can't do this to me

    The author’s command of the language allows the continuation of the story of The Ranger's Apprentice to flow with ease and familiarity Characters become those you care about nervous and anxious when they are in danger and happy and satisfied when a job is well done The on going story starts with the The Ruins of Gorlan and your memory is refreshed in such a way that it is not merely rehashing and reiterating the beginning over again but a gentle reminder of what proceeded at the start of the saga Halt and his apprentice Ranger Will are continuing their training of the ranger method as Horace Will's orphanage mate is training on the battleschool field The first inklings of an invasion by evil and sadistic Morgarath and his Wargals is becoming apparent Gilan a trusted fellow ranger was the first ranger trained by HaltHe is sent on a mission with Will and Horace to enlist the help of the secretive Celtica nation a nation known for their mastery of mining welding and tunnel excavations When passing through many towns in Celtica an ominous foreboding is surrounding the townsthey are virtually empty of life and it is evident that they have left their homes in haste What happened to them? Why does Gilan Halt and Horace sense that it has something to do with Morgarath? An adventure story touched ever so slightly by fantasy elements is filled with battle strategy and maneuversstrong yet compassionate men no good money loving mercenaries and intelligent and beautiful women The Wargals half men half bearlike creatures are controlled by Morgarath Their brute force is unmatched yet their every move is controlled through the brain washing effects dictated by Morgarath Will Horace Gilan and Halt combine efforts to aid King Duncan of Araluen in the defeat of Morgarath Will Horace Halt and Gilan along with newcomer Evanlyn Cassandraall contribute to Morgarath's demise but the story does not end conveniently as Will and Evanlyn seemed doomed to a life of slavery with their capture by the Skandias Will Halt let that happen? I assume we will all find out in the third book of the series

    Even under Halt's tutelage years of training will be needed for Will to become a Ranger In this era of war though he'll only have months before being reuired to perform like one It seems to be an important victory when Halt and Will ambush a small party of Wargals slaying the violent creatures and discovering a written plan for Lord Morgarath's next siege against the Kingdom of Araluen Morgarath was banished fifteen years ago for exerting mind control over the Wargals and using them to attack Araluen but Halt turned the tide of battle against Morgarath at the eleventh hour Foreknowledge of the evil lord's plans will be key in stopping his assault on the kingdom's fifty fiefs a second time It could be Araluen's saving graceif the plans are authentic A reconnaissance mission to Celtic lands is necessary to warn the people but Halt is needed elsewhere So Gilan—Halt's first apprentice a master swordsman and tracker—heads the mission joined by Will and Horace a Battleschool apprentice whose childhood rivalry with Will resolved itself in book one The Ruins of Gorlan In Celtica they find deserted villages and homes that appear to have been vacated some time ago Why did the Celts disappear without notifying anyone? Gilan Will and Horace's worst suspicions are confirmed when they meet Evanlyn a frightened teen girl who says that Wargals raided the region and killed her companions Morgarath's push for war with Araluen is escalating rapidly but his actions don't match the written plans that Halt and Will found What is the Lord of Rain and Night's real strategy and what are mere feint tactics to deceive Araluen's braintrust? Observing how Halt misses having Will around Baron Arald and Lady Pauline of Castle Redmont temporarily assign young Alyss to him The apprentice ambassador enlivens the Ranger's daily life but Halt is concerned for Will out in the countryside where deadly enemies roam Will struggled in his most recent combat with the aggressive Wargals; if they meet again can Gilan coach him to win the fight and restore Will's confidence? Gilan is the team leader but Will and Horace are capable apprentices and Evanlyn is a keen strategist and they deduce that Morgarath has a hidden design for Araluen's destruction His vast Wargal army is bottled up on the wrong side of a mountain pass unable to invade the kingdom in large numbers but Morgarath has devised a solution to the problem There's no time to head home and alert King Duncan but a bold gambit by Will Horace and Evanlyn could shut down Morgarath's path and allow opportunity for Araluen to shore up its vulnerabilities The time is now for Will to act as a Ranger and Horace a knight but can two apprentices and a plucky friend actually defeat the dark lord who has tormented Araluen since before any of them were born? Will couldn't have a better mentor than Halt Will had nascent Ranger abilities and a good heart but needed Halt to show him what separates a real warrior from the romanticized version in most people's minds Will and Halt spend most of The Burning Bridge apart so we miss out on this continuing education but there are a few bright spots of wisdom Will recalls Halt's advice while he's scouting an empty tract of land Whenever you're scoutingmove as if there's somebody there to see you Never assume that you're on your own Peril is ever present when you're taking sensitive action Why risk your life if a bit of discipline can shield you from disaster? Halt treated Will with indifference for most of the first book like an inconvenience he tolerated out of professional duty but clearly he sees Will as than that Lady Pauline understands the gift Will is to Halt He's amusing and interesting and talkative and cheerful I should imagine he's brightened Halt's life uite considerably The freshness of youth is impossible to duplicate invigorating the old and tired with new sense of purpose In its absence it is painfully obvious how dreary life becomes Will has grave doubts after his botched encounter with the Wargals and needs Halt's wisdom to heal his resolve but Gilan will have to suffice The young Ranger assures Will that fear is normal and cautions him not to obsess over past mistakes Self doubt is a disease And if it gets out of control it becomes self fulfilling You have to learn from what happenedUse the experience to make you stronger Self doubt can cause devastating erosion of elite potential; it's crucial to focus on your action in the moment and do it to the best of your ability trusting your training and discipline That's the only way for Will to grow into the Ranger that Halt is confident he can be and is perhaps Araluen's only chance of survival against the approaching menace of Morgarath Will good triumph over evil when the final battle commences? The Burning Bridge isn't as deeply wise as The Ruins of Gorlan and doesn't have the same easy flow Its life lessons are less extensive and directly applicable to the reader and particular plot points could be subtle But it's a solid novel; I came close to rounding my two and a half star rating to three and the emotional ending leads into the next book with redoubled energy and direction Will's challenges as he grows into a good man and Ranger are only going to get harder and he'll have to surmount them mostly by himself Will he take another big stride in The Icebound Land?

    This book is very well written not only grammatically but in the emotion that the author can draw out of the reader The story plot line is exceptional and creates a world you can truly believe exists This atmosphere in the book is so realistic you become immersed in the world inside the book The book is actually the second in a series However in the first two pages it explains the background and then dives right in not wasting time on lengthy unnecessary explanations The story begins in an exciting manner with a chase a capture of battle plans and the beginning of a war The story continues growing in excitement and subterfuge Though the plot thickens it does not become over complicated and it creates an almost perfect balance of characters emotions and plot lines Everything that happens to the characters pulls at you compelling you to feel what they feelThis book is excellently written and I would recommend it for anyone at any age It is a book that many no matter what age will find enjoyable to readI loved reading this book because this book created one of the most realistic worlds I have encountered in a book This book also balanced all of the elements ensuring I wouldn't get confused while also adding depth
