Ranger's Apprentice Book 5 - The Sorcerer of the North by John Flanagan

Grim tidings from the Norgate in the north send the
Ranger Will on a quest to sort out fact from fiction. Tales
of foul sorcery are abroad in the land frightening the folk
far and wide.

It's not just the common folk who are worried. There's
trouble at the Castle Macindaw as well. Someone is using
withcraft or sorcery...or poison to eliminate Norgate's
rulers, but who?

Ranger Will parades as a jongleur to find out. Aided by his
friend Alyssa, his faithful Tug and a new friend, Will begins
the task of unraveling the schemes and mystery surrounding
Castle Macindaw.

The series of Ranger's Apprentice continues to be age
appropriate for teen and pre-teens alike, but even adults
appreciate a well written tale.
