The Ranger's Apprentice Book Two: The Burning Bridge by John Flanagan

In the book Ranger's Apprentice Book Two: The Burning Bridge the main character, Will, is an apprentice to a legendary ranger named Halt. Will is sent on a mission to the King Swyddned of the Celts to ask for men in the battle against Morgarath the evil Lord of Rain and Night. Will is accompanied by another ranger, Gilan, who was a former apprentice to Halt and not too much older than Will. He is also accompanied by a trainee to the battleschool, Horace, who is around Will's age and an old friend. When they get into the Kingdom of the Celts it is strangely abandoned, and they soon find themselves on an adventure that could change the whole fate of the Empire.

I think that Ranger's Apprentice Book Two: The Burning Bridge is an excellent book. It is very fast-paced with lots of adventure. It also has some witty humor that will bring a chuckle out of you several times in the book. I had to go and get the first book to the series after I read this one because I enjoyed it so much. If you are in to fantasies set in the middle ages with lots of sword fighting and bowing then you need to get this book.
