    I must be brave. I must do what has to be done. I am Alice. Alice is the most powerful witch the county has ever seen. She may one day be the most evil. But Alice is also the best friend - and true love - of Tom Ward. Together they work to defeat the Fiend - the world's greatest evil - once and for all. They have nearly everything they need, all except a blade hidden in the Dark, the Fiend's domain. So Alice ventures there to find it. She faces the most terrifying creatures in existence. And she once again battles old enemies who bear grudges: Bony Lizzie, Bloodeye, and more.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to anyone who follows the Last Apprentice stories. However I would warn them that the narrator really is awful.


    What did you like best about this story?

    When Alice describes the time she spent with Bony Lizzie.


    Have you listened to any of Angela Goethals’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, nor will I.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    My reaction was what direction will book 13 take?

    “Are you there, Satan? It’s me, Madison,” declares the whip-tongued 13-year-old narrator of Damned, Chuck Palahniuk’s subversive new work of fiction. The daughter of a narcissistic film star and a billionaire, Madison is abandoned at her Swiss boarding school over Christmas, while her parents are off touting their new projects and adopting more orphans. She dies over the holiday of a marijuana overdose—and the next thing she knows, she’s in Hell.

    William says: "As a new Chuck Palahniuk reader, I liked it a lot!"

    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    This is a strange audiobook, and not really worth a credit. It is boring and dry at times.

    One of history's most enigmatic women tells the haunting, passionate story of her tumultuous life. Juana of Castile is just thirteen when she witnesses the fall of Moorish Granada and the uniting of the fractured kingdoms of Spain under her warrior parents, Isabel and Fernando. Intelligent, beautiful, and proud of her heritage, Juana rebels when she is chosen as a bride for the Hapsburg heir.

    Bonnie says: "This is a historical "Novel""
    "Great Book"
    Overall

    This is a fabulous book. First the story of Juana the Mad, is great. It portrays her as she really was a victim of power hungry men. Was she mad? No! Just a victim of domestic violence. But you have to judge that for yourself. The narrator tone and clarity if fabulous. The only regret is I wish the author would have went more in depth of Juana life. I highly recommend this audio book.

    Only Thomas Ward is left. He's the last hope; the last apprentice. Can Thomas succeed? Will he learn the difference between a benign witch and a malevolent one? Does the Spook's warning against girls with pointy shoes include Alice? And what will happen if Thomas accidentally frees Mother Malkin, the most evil witch in the county?

    Mark says: "Loved it!"
    "One Spooky book"
    Overall

    This book is the first of the The Wardstone Chronicles, The Spook's Last Apprentice. The series intended for children 12 and up. However, adults may enjoy the series too. It is good book to curl up to, but a word of the wise...its scary. The narrator has great voice,tone, and clarity. The narrator and author whirl you through the life of 17th century Spook's Apprentice, as he rids the county of ghost, boggarts, and witches. The battle wages on "good versus evil." Great Book!!!!
