Publisher's Summary

A dangerous few months lie ahead, ones which some of us will be hard-pressed to survive.

Thomas Ward has served as the Spook's apprentice for three years. He has battled boggarts, witches, demons, and even the devil himself. Tom has enemies: The Fiend stalks him, waiting for a moment of weakness. The terrifying Morrigan, goddess of witches, warned him never to step foot on her homeland, Ireland.

But now war has consumed their own country, and Tom, his friend Alice, and the Spook must flee to Ireland. The dark rages strongly there. No one can be trusted. Can Tom defeat the creatures that hunt him most fiercely?

    "Be Warned!"

    This is the exact same story as Spooks Destiney so dont waste your credit. Otherwise it is as good as all the others.

    "Scary but good"
    Where does The Last Apprentice: Rage of the Fallen rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I could hardly wait to listent to this book every day. It kept me on the edge of my seat. I wanted to finish it, yet I didn't want it to end. I will buy more of the series. Great story, great narrator.


    What other book might you compare The Last Apprentice: Rage of the Fallen to and why?

    In some ways it was similiar to Harry Potter, only darker, with witches and bogarts and "the dark". Good versus evil. A young hero against the dark forces.


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

    He certainly made each character their own. He was amazing at individualizing each character's voice, they truly came alive


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Beware of the dark!


    Any additional comments?

    I loved this book. I am going to go back to the beginning and listen to the entire series. I find it hard to believe that this book is a "teen" book. It has some pretty scary, bloody stuff in it.

    "Stayed away too long, forgot how good these were."
    What made the experience of listening to The Last Apprentice: Rage of the Fallen the most enjoyable?

    Good story and good narration.


    Any additional comments?

    Enjoyed this series quite awhile ago, up through the last one written. Checked back for a period of time and then forgot about them. By accident, ran across the series again in Oct. '12 and realized there were new ones to enjoy. The new ones are better than ever! Great book to take your mind off everything else. Narrator is superb and I am glad he is back to read the rest of the series.

    Story
    "Brilliant As Always!"

    Great book, definitely up to the standard of what to expect. The series has always been dark and gorgeously written, which I love. As always, I look forward to the next book in the series, and I buy them without any hesitation, knowing I won't be disappointed. Christopher Evan Welch gets top marks for reading as usual, adding depth and emotion to these lovely characters. I love how much, without even having to say, Alice and Tom love each other. He is her light in her darkest time and he hurts when he's away from her. FYI to those wondering, Patrick Arrasmith is NOT a co-author. Delaney writes the series by himself. Arrasmith does all the illustrations in the USA hardcopy books which is why he is credited. So, a definite five star recomendation!

    "Is this the end of a good series?"

    Well, a new author but he's got the style & characters down pretty well -- I would never have suspected.

    But: elsewhere on Audible I noticed "The Spook's Destiny," which according to the sample audio is the same book as "Rage of the Fallen" but without the credit to the coauthor. The really bad news is that it has a NEW NARRATOR (no longer Christopher Evan Welch). If Welch is not the reader, then count me out.

    But thanks for a good run of eight or so books.

    "Not even close"

    This dull story and plodding narrator are well paired for the unsuspecting purchaser. An object lesson in not believing all of the reviews one reads. Purchase at your peril. I gave it several hours, but could not finish. May you fair better.

    "One of the few books"

    that grabs my attention and KEEPS it. The time just goes by too quickly and I'm left trying to figure out when the next one is coming out...and can I wait?

    My only complaint is I heard the movie version will have an adults playing Tom and Alice...NO, NO, NO!

    This series was recommended to me by someone who thought it better than the Potter books--and I agree.
