“You can’t make alliances with witches and suchlike and hope to avoid being drawn toward the dark.”

As the Spook’s apprentice, Thomas Ward’s first duty is to protect the County from ghosts, boggarts, and other dangerous creatures. But now his mother has come back from her homeland to seek his help. One of the most dangerous of the old witches, Ordeen, is about to return to earth, bringing with her suffering and devastation. Tom’s mother has mustered a powerful army—including Tom’s friend Alice, the Pendle witches, and the assassin Grimalkin—to confront Ordeen. If Tom joins them, the Spook will refuse to take Tom back as his apprentice. What sacrifices will be made in the battle against the dark?

Quotes & Awards

  • “The Last Apprentice series continues to be one of the best written of the last several years…As in previous books, the writing is direct, and the plotting and characters, most not of the human variety, are smart and believable. Naturally, fans of the series are the best audience, but this is accessible even to those just jumping in.”

    " Tom Ward is called to try to save the Spook's estranged brother, who is being slowly killed by an evil spirit. He is too late, and when Tom and the Spook try to attend the funeral, the Spook is imprisioned, put on trial, and sentenced to death. Meanwhile, Alice too is to be burned, and Tom has to rescue her. Alice then enlists the ultra-evil Bane to help rescue the Spook. Eventually, Tom and the Spook have to rid Alice of this menace, who is the Spook's long-time nemesis. "

    " In this second installment in The Last Apprentice series, Tom Ward is once again, learning new lessons from the town Spook, John Gregory. Tom is the seventh son of a seventh son, just as Master Gregory is. They go about the countryside ridding the town of ghosts, ghasts, witches and other supernatural creatures that prey on weak townsfolk. But, this time they are also running from the evil Quisitor, who hunts for witches and falsely accuses many with the end result being burned at the stake. He also decries the doings of the Spook and his apprentice, and as such Tom and Master Gregory are in deep danger. On the other-worldly side, they are also trying to defeat the powerful Bane, who is growing stronger and stronger by the day. With the help of their not-so-evil witch friend, Alice they hopefully will find a way to defeat two such formidable enemies and go on with the mundane, everyday chores of Spook lessons and learning.

    " Better than Harry Potter, extremely dark. "

    " I thought this book was good. The detail was explained and I was able to picture the setting in my head. This book is basically about the Spook getting caught and the apprentice needs to save him and the same time dealing with the Bane (one of the Spooks most feared enemies). "
