I do wish that Spook would "lay off" Alice. All of us battle with good and evil within ourselves but I think that one has a better chance of overcoming the evil tendencies by being surrounded by a loving and supportive environment. His banishment of Alice is akin to "throwing her to the, proverbial, wolves" thereby decreasing her chances of choosing that percious "LIGHT" He is always going on about!!! SPOOKS' world view is apparently limited to black and white but I think that before this series ends that hopefully he will discover that "gray areas" thankfully do exist.
My favorites character so far are Tom, Tom's Mom and Alice! I THINK THIS WOULD BE AN ENJOYABLE SERIES FOR MOST AGE GROUPS, BUT MAYBE NOT FOR THE VERY YOUNG, BECAUSE THE VILLIANS COULD BE A BIT TOO SCARY FOR THEM BUT THAT TOO WOULD DEPENDS ON THE CHILD. :)
Tom and The Spook have decided to go to Pendle to deal with the witches once and for all. They have heard rumors that the 3 witch clans are trying to unite to raise the devil himself. The clans are being prodded by none other than his Mams life long enemy. Will Tom, Alice, and The Spook be able to stop them? Will they discover what is in those trunks or what exactly Toms Mam is? Read this awesome book to find out.
I have said it before but this series just gets better with each installment. I love the fact that Alice and Tom are strengthening their friendship despite the warnings from The Spook. The imagery, writing, and everything about this book is on its A game!
I highly recommend this book at middle school aged children al the way up to adult aged children (at heart)!!!
With giant towers, three families of witches joining to work together, and the threat of summoning the Fiend . . . Tom, the Spook, and Alice, have their work cut out for them! And, as always, time is of the essence.
While the movie was so-so, and hardly like any of the four books I've read so far (except for the names of characters, and some slight similarities to plot), I am enjoying Delaney's books. And will continue reading The Last Apprentice series ... (I have all 13 books).
Author of YOUNG BLOOD and DAMN THE DEAD
This time the Spook and Tom do not have to fight a witch or two but instead three whole covens. That sounds bad enough but put in the Fiend as well... let's just say they have a lot of ground to cover. On top of that Tom finds himself alone many times and having to put to test what the Spook has taught him. Can such a short apprenticeship and his wits be enough? Read the book and find out. I guarantee you won't be disappointed.
