Review: The Last Apprentice by Joseph Delaney

The Last Apprentice:Revenge of the Witch by Joseph Delaney, ages 10 +

Old Gregory, the town Spook, has been protecting the county for years, ridding it of any unwanted evil. But his time is swiftly coming to an end. He’s had twenty-nine apprentices – some failed, some ran away and others died. There is one more who might be able to fill the Spook’s mighty boots.

Young Thomas Ward is the seventh son of a seventh son and the last apprentice. He’s always known that he is different and that strange things lurk in the dark, but now he must face the truth and face the darkness. From ghosts and ghasts to nasty witches and tricky boggarts, it’s up to Tom to learn the tricks of his trade and save others, even the ones who turn their backs on him.

This book is a delicious serving of the undead and a creepy page turner. It is loaded with scary encounters with the supernatural and completed with terrifying illustrations. I loved every minute of it. Well written and freshly told, this is a great series for boys or anyone who loves a little fright when reading in bed at night.
