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?

    "Good read"
    If you could sum up The Last Apprentice in three words, what would they be?

    intriguing Well performed.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Unknowingly picked a story with a teen lead, nice draw for our son who is a reluctant reader, but avid listener.


    What does Christopher Evan Welch bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    the creep level


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes and we did.


    Any additional comments?

    glad to see consistency in the second book's reader.

    "Scary and intense"

    I've enjoyed all the Delany books, although I prefer the title the "Spook's Apprentice" to the Americanized version. It's a great sequence with many chills and horrors. Not for the faint of heart, and parents, if you're concerned about younger readers scaring themselves, I'd recommend a pre-read. Lots of discussion of witches, ghosts, and bad ghoulies.

    "wow"

    This is kind of a dark book. My boys loved it. My 11 year old is now actually reading the sequel. Thatmeans a lot.

    "The Last Apprentice: Revenge of the Witch"

    I purchased this book for a long trips with
    children in the car. I enjoyed it so much
    that I purchased the next two books. This is
    a great book for children 10 and up - and for
    adults as well. It was well read, easy to follow and a bit scary.

    "Highly recommended!"

    Excellent! This book was very enjoyable; I am hoping for a sequel or follow-up. The narration is smooth and enjoyable, and this book went far faster than I hoped. I was wanting more!

    "Great!!"

    Can't wait for the next one in the series, well worth listening to. I listened to it nearly non-stop, so did my 13yr old son.
