What really happened at Hackham Heath that made Halt a hero to the entire Kingdom? This is the prequel Ranger's Apprentice fans have been waiting for. When Baron Morgarath escaped to avoid punishment for treason, an uneasy peace fell on Araluen. But the Rangers know Morgarath will be planning his next move. King Duncan must prepare for war.
Morgarath’s force of savage, inhuman Wargals seems unstoppable against Duncan’s depleted army. One wrong move could mean defeat. At the Battle of Hackham Heath, the fate of a Kingdom will be decided.
The origin story of how Halt came to be Araluen’s most famous Ranger – and how war will shape the future of the next generation – will thrill Ranger’s Apprentice fans and new readers alike.
