Second story in "The Last Apprentice" series.
The seventh son of a seventh son, Thomas Ward is six months into his apprenticeship with the County's "Spook", John Gregory. The "Spook"'s job is to rid the county of witches, ghosts, boggarts, and other creatures of the night. In this story, Gregory the Spook and young Thomas have to subdue a formdiable evil creature called The Bane before it terrorizes the whole County.
Excellent story, exciting and well-written.
I read this series at my library and now I have to own them for myself!
Enjoyable follow up to the last apprentice's first adventure!
This was another well-written book in the series that I read quickly. It's a great book for young and old, although it's could be considered scary by some younger readers due to some of the violence in the book. I definitely plan on reading more of these since I can't find a lot to complain about (my review would be longer if I did! LOL)
I can not put these books down. Joseph Delaney is such a great writer and draws you into the story and Tom's world.
Learn more about the job Tom has to do, how Alice will help him and the Spook's past.
Great little ghost stories in this series! Love the character evolution!
Our apprentice continues his training and meets some interesting characters, discovers more information than he thought he would from his very quiet master and surprise himself along the way.
