    " This series is really an undiscovered treat. (Although, looking at the author's website, the series seems to be very popular. Looks like a movie may be in the works.) I'm going to have to get the first book and start at the beginning. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kendar88 | 3/26/2011

    " Short stories. Not as interesting as the books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ryan | 12/17/2010

    " 3 stars for the first story, The Spook's Tale. Filled with Delaney's customary solid, suspenseful language.

    The other short stories aren't worth reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joseph | 12/9/2010

    " is story from the spook journals "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thomas | 7/30/2010

    " For the major fans waiting for the next book in the series, this book shows how the spook himself, Tom's master, became a spook and how he survived as an apprentice to one. It also tells other character's stories and how they came to be who and how they are in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 MiriLou | 6/24/2010

    " Stories told by other characters of the Last Apprentice series. For instance how the Spook started out and how Grimalkin became the witch assassin. Interesting if you like the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott | 6/11/2010

    " Great back-story for many of the characters who are in the books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jess | 3/9/2010

    " Good. Is it bad if I found Grimalkin to be completely the coolest person ever after reading this? Not that I didn't already like her. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brett | 2/4/2010

    " Some really fantastic "between-the-scenes" stories. The story of how John Gregory first encounters the world of the Spook is especially great. It would be interesting to read some more stories of his early career, before he meets Tom Ward. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 2/2/2010

    " This just tied me over until the next book came out. It was just some short stories about characters we've already met. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Desiree | 1/29/2010

    " who knew the spook had a solft side "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 12/12/2009

    " This is such a good series--very original and scary! This entry in the series is a collection of shorts written from different points of view/characters in the series. Some of the stories are ones we've heard in the other books but now told from another point of view--very satisfying! "
