Ranger’s Oath by Blake Arthur Peel
The barrier between worlds is broken. Only he knows the truth…
Magic has protected Tarsynium for a thousand years, shielding its people from being ravaged by bloodthirsty demons. When a young ranger’s apprentice named Owyn Lund discovers that the Arc of Radiance has been breached, he tries to warn anybody who will listen. But legends aren’t supposed to be real.
When a village is mysteriously destroyed, rangers, mages, and rebels all point the finger, blaming each other for the demons’ brutality. However, Zara Dennel, a mage’s ward, has heard Owyn’s tale—and she’s inclined to believe him.
Together, they must prove that friendship is greater than intolerance, unity is more important than division, and that even the most powerful magic can sometimes not be enough. Failure means the end of all things. A second—and lasting—Doom.
Experience the beginning of a thrilling Epic Fantasy series suitable for all ages. It’s perfect for
fans of Sabaa Tahir, Sarah J. Maas, and Brandon Sanderson.
I started reading Ranger’s Oath without having much expectations, I just knew it was a fantasy with a beautiful cover (couldn’t help it!) I was quite surprised by how much I’ve enjoyed it.
Ranger’s Oath is a pretty fast-paced book with a lot of unique things that set it apart from other fantasy books. There are mages and rangers, for example, two different “categories” with different abilities (one has magic and the other physical strength) who have the same goal.
The characters were well-developed throughout the book and pretty relatable. The alternated POVs made the reading so much smoother and easy to follow. It made us as readers get to know and understand the characters (mainly Owyn and Zara) better.
The world seems so real! It was really well-written and, along with the pace, it hooked me right from the start. I thoroughly enjoyed exploring this universe and its characters and I can’t wait to read the rest of this series!! Highly recommend! ❤
