Grandson 1.2
 
The Ranger's Apprentice Series
by John A. Flanagan
 
 
 
They have always scared him in the past—the Rangers, with their dark cloaks and shadowy ways. The villagers believe the Rangers practice magic that makes them invisible to ordinary people. And now 15-year-old Will, always small for his age, has been chosen as a Ranger's apprentice. What he doesn't yet realize is that the Rangers are the protectors of the kingdom. Highly trained in the skills of battle and surveillance, they fight the battles before the battles reach the people. And as Will is about to learn, there is a large battle brewing. The exiled Morgarath, Lord of the Mountains of Rain and Night, is gathering his forces for an attack on the kingdom. This time, he will not be denied. . . .
 
1.2 likes this series because they go on missions and do fun things.
From the reviews on Amazon (all 4.5-5 stars) this looks like a
great adventure series to engage grades 4-8.

Amy's Review of Light Unshaken by Crystal Walton


Book Summary/Teaser:

It's real. It has to be. Twenty-two-year-old college student Emma Matthews gained too much ground last year for it all to be a dream. She has an engagement ring on her finger to prove it. Not to mention an internship she's made for. 

But as mounting danger compromises her safety, friction intensifies until the risk of keeping her promise threatens all she's fought to believe. Caught in a moment when every light in her life goes out, Emma must find the courage to lead her heart no matter what it costs her.


 

Light Unshaken (The Unveiled Series) by Crystal Walton

Genre: Fiction, romance
Content: Some Violence
Publisher:  Impact Editions
Release date: June 18, 2015
Number of Pages:  304 
My Opinion:
This book started out as a really cheesy and corny love story - I didn't know if I wanted to finish reading it. But a couple of chapters into the book, Emma's fiancĂ© has to move across the country.  Once their super sappy relationship becomes long distance the book becomes really enjoyable.  I found a lot of interest in her work at the kids' club. That was the best part of the story.  It was written really well and I became attached to several of the characters.  I do think their behavior is a little too clichĂ© at times and becomes a little predictable, but I enjoyed it anyway!
