Reviews for Halt's Peril

Booklist Reviews 2010 September #2
Continuing the story line begun in The Kings of Clonmel (2010), book 9 of the Ranger's Apprentice series sends Halt, Will, and Horace back on the trail of the same vicious, thieving outlaws. When a poisoned arrow takes Halt out of his senses and soon threatens his life, his younger comrades must take the lead to save him and continue their mission. A fine addition to a popular series, this volume sends the three main characters into adventures that they can survive only by relying on one other. Series fans will enjoy the dialogue and camaraderie as much as the action.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2011 Spring
While pursuing the cult leader from The Kings of Clonmel, Ranger Halt is wounded with an assassin's poisoned arrow; he could die unless his former-apprentice-turned-trusted-partner Will can fetch help in time. The warm relationship between the two men, their canny woodcraft, and more than one agonizing dilemma keep the tightly constructed story emotionally engaging and dramatically satisfying.
