A Book Review: The Sorcerer of the North (Ranger's Apprentice Book 5)

Title: The Ranger's Apprentice: The Sorcerer of the North
Author: John Flanagan
Genre: Fantasy (MG)
Length: 295

Quality Rating: 7
Content Rating: PG

In this book, Will is all grown-up. He is no longer an apprentice, but rather a young man with a fief of his own. I definitely enjoyed the grown-up aspects of Will, though perhaps he didn't seem grown-up enough at times. He still very much seemed to be the same boy he was before. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing. I enjoyed the new developments in his relationship with his female friends, but sort of wished for a little more. But I'm a girl, and these books are written for boys, so I can guess I understand the lack of gushy feeling from Will.

This book still gets a PG. Enjoy!
