Book Review: The Ranger’s Apprentice

rangers-apprenticeThis book, The Ranger’s Apprentice, was recommended to me by a Facebook friend.  It was a procrastinated read for me and I am sorry that I waited as long as I did.  This was one of those books for me where I just wanted more and more.  It doesn’t matter if you are an archer, a warrior, or adventurer, this book was all that and more.

I listened to it via audio recording that I got from my local library.  I will not give any of the story away.  I will just tell you how fun this book was.  I was literally cheering for the heroes.  I was at the edge of my seat in suspense with the action.  I fell in love with the characters.  I found joy in their accomplishments and felt the sorrow in their failures.

I cannot thank my Facebook pal, Jimmy Pitts, enough for recommending this series to me.  I have already started listening to the second book and I am looking forward to watching these characters grow.  “The Ranger’s Apprentice” is just so much fun!!

Slightly peculiar interview with Khatuna Lorig at Women’s Fitness website. Strange layout, wonky translation, couple of very odd questions, but there’s some interesting bits. Have a read:

Khatuna Lorig: No.1 Women Archer in US Reveals her Success Mantra

Ms. Namita Nayyar: You have glowing skin and gorgeous hairs. Do you take some kind of skin treatment to keep it young and glowing and secondly what you do to your hairs to make them look so stunning?

Ms. Khatuna Lorig: Thank you. I was lucky to be born with great skin and hair. I thank my parents and clean living and lots of sleep.
