Publisher's Summary

Warning: Not to be listened to after dark.

For years, Old Gregory has been the Spook for the county, ridding the local villages of evil. Now his time is coming to an end. But who will take over for him? Twenty-nine apprentices have tried: some floundered, some fled, some failed to stay alive.

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?

    "The best Apprentice"

    I enjoyed the entire series but none more than "The Revenge of the Witch." (The others are sequels.) "Revenge" has the cleverest plot and the most emotion; a real warmth about it. While all may not agree with me on that, most will agree that this book is the one to read first. It opens the series and introduces the main characters, gradually letting you get to discover their mysteries along with Thomas; especially the Spook, Alice, and mam. Great fun, and you don't have to be 13...

    Marvelous performance by the narrator.

    "Fairytale Scary!"

    This story was just what I was looking for. An evil witch, told in a creepy, thrilling way who terrorizes a young magician's apprentice. Good read!

    "great book"

    I've always loved this book. I don't care much for the voice the reader gives the spook though.

    Story
    "Intro to the Seventh Son"
    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the movie The Seventh Son and was interested to know what the books were like. This first book in the series introduces us to Tom Ward, a much younger version of the apprentice than depicted in the movie. Master Gregory, Mother Malkin, Alice, Bony Lizzie, Tusk, and boggarts appear in this book with a very different story line than that of the movie. I thought it was a fair introduction and will check out the second book in this series to see if Tom's continued training with the Spook will introduce other magical creatures as in the movie. It was a little scary to listen to before bedtime so this is a different type of book than I'm used to reading.
