The courage of a warrior. The skill of a thief. Meet your new hero
Castle Macindaw has been overrun by traitors and the Scotti are about to invade. On his first top secret mission as a Ranger, can Will find a way to save the Kingdom from fierce northern enemies?
In a desolate northern fief, where can Will find the fighting men he needs to overcome the traitorous Sir Keren and his band of criminals? Across the border, the fierce Scotti tribesmen are waiting for the signal that Castle Macindaw is in friendly hands, and the way is clear to mount a full-scale attack.
Time is running out. Will's courage and ingenuity - and the arrival of an old friend - may be the only things that stand in their way.
