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.

Halt volunteers for a seemingly impossible task – climbing the deadly cliffs of the Mountains of Rain and Night and venturing deep into enemy territory to spy on Morgarath. Meanwhile, Crowley must ensure the Queen’s safety as she undertakes her own perilous journey for the sake of her unborn child.

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.

    I LOVE his stuff. This one, however, didn't have his usual sense of humour and pizzaz. Still a good read. Still glad I bought it, although it didn't improve much on what already covered.

      Comments about The Battle of Hackham Heath:

      Great follow-on prequel (if that's not confusing) of Halt's early Ranger life. Well-written, nice cover design (compared to the UK edition), fast-shipping and Booktopia usually offers a signed copy too! Makes an excellent Christmas gift for young and old fans of the series. Also, not too inaccessible for new readers unfamiliar to the established 'Ranger's Apprentice' universe and parent series of books.

          Because it's a prequel that was written after the series, I had a rough idea as to what would happen, but it still made me laugh and cry and it surprised me, so happy to add it to my rangers apprentice collection:)
