The Burning Bridge (The Ranger's Apprentice, Book 2) by John Flanagan
Rating: This is the second book and is very exciting. There is some fighting and war, but it is a good book for any age reader. The book ends with a real cliff-hanger and it really makes you want to read the next book right away. I suggest having all of the first four books so that you can read them one after another.
Description: Will and Horace have discovered a secret plan to ambush the armies of Araluen. With each using their own skills and knowledge will they be able to prevent the destruction of their homeland, or will the enemy conquer?
