Free E-Book: Ranger's Apprentice, and ARC giveaway!

Yes, a FREE E-Book of Ranger's Apprentice: The Ruins of Gorlan, and an ARC giveaway contest of book six in the Ranger's Apprentice series titled The Siege of Macindaw.

Penguin is having a big promotion! You can read
the first book in the Ranger's Apprentice series free on E-book for a limited time. This promotion ends February 15th! Find out how the adventure begins before it ends!


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. . . .
