Ruins of Gorlan

The Ranger's Apprentice series starts with a bunch of "castle wards" being assigned their careers. Will thinks he wants to be in battle school, but he is too scrawny. He tries to sneak into the castle and is caught, only to find out that was expected. He will be an apprentice ranger. He is stuck doing a lot of "dirty work" at first, but enjoys it. Horrace, his friend, is in battle school. He is bullied by other boys, but thinks it is part of the process. The bullying wears on him and makes him cold towards his friends. However, he is one of the best. He and Will eventually make peace and help each other at a Boar hunt. The bullies are finally caught as they attempt to bully Will also, and are exiled. Everyone seems happy in their chosen profession. The Ranger always seems to know what is best. He can seem too smart at times. But, I suppose that is what entertains the audience.
