Ranger's Apprentice: Halt's Peril; Book 9
Tennyson and his "followers" have fled Clonmel, leaving a dead king and many swindled and murdered people in their wake. Halt, Will and Horace, are hot on his trail. Halt is immortal, a legend, and when he obtains a mere scratch in their confrontation with the Geneovesan assassins, nothing is thought of it. Poison quickly brings the search party to their limits, both physically and emotionally. It is a delicate balance to save Halt's life, and still save the kingdom.
