If you've already seen "Insurgent" and are currently suffering through major action withdrawal, fear not: We're got an exclusive peek at bestselling fantasy-adventure writer John Flanagan's latest series in the form of a pretty badass cover reveal.
Let's pause for a moment to take it allllll in:
There's a lot there, right? The splintering arrow. The charging horse. All the lovely colors. Just gaze for a few before continuing with this story -- I don't mind.
OK! As you can see from the words emblazoned on the cover, Flanagan's new book is titled "The Tournament At Gorlan," and it's the first in his new series, "Ranger’s Apprentice: The Early Years" -- a prequel to his wildly popular "Ranger's Apprentice" series.
While the existing books deal with an orphan named Will and his apprenticeship as a Ranger (which is basically what it sounds like -- a protector), the prequels deal with an early iteration of the Ranger group and a threat to its integrity.
Put a big red circle on your calendar on October 6 -- because that's when the action goes down. In the meantime, we're just going to keep staring at this cover...
