SORCERER OF THE NORTH
Ranger’s Apprentice #5

Finds out a nephew of a Duke is trying to take over and make an alliance with the Picti. Alice is involved, and gets captured.
Came very close to getting on my favorites list. But all the sequels just haven’t lived up to my joy of reading the first book.
That being said, I enjoyed this [and it’s sequel] the most after the first book.
