He's the seventh son of a seventh son. He's the only one who can stop the greatest evil. Tom Ward, the Spook's last apprentice, has everything he needs to vanquish the Fiend, once and for all: the three blades recovered from the dark, the gifts from his witch mother, and the skills he's learned from Master Gregory. And Alice, the one he loves most, is willing to sacrifice herself to fulfill the spell. Or is she? Racing against time, all of Tom's old allies - and old enemies - return. They will clash in a final battle more epic than any he has fought before.

What disappointed you about Fury of the Seventh Son?

I bought all 13, I repeat ALL of the Harper audiobook versions of the Wardstone Chronicles. While it's really sad that Christopher Evan Welch was not able to finish (cause he died) why the heck did Harper get somebody who was nowhere close to the style and approach of the other 10 books, let alone that one that ended the series?In addition, I felt that Joseph Delaney just wanted to finish up the big baddy Fiend as an arch which isn't really isnt. This was a decade long series for heaven's sake, the author could have at least given it a little better closure and drama. Instead we were treated to what if felt like is a prologue for another series. It really didn't have to be written that way, we would have continued to the next either way.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The way the fiend was defeated was rather flat and it felt empty because of how we kept getting set up for the next series while this ones not even resolved yet. We waited a decade for how Tom vs Fiend in the end would come to be. Their final showdown was WEAK.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Alexander Cendese?

NO and whoever did should get fired.

Any additional comments?

The audiobook version really dropped the ball.

FIRE THE NARRATORS!!!

I have close to 100 audio books and gosh, the narrators for City of Angels is by far absolutely the worse ever. Sorry but if they must have boy/girl narrators just use the Jacob/Bella voice actor combination from twilight!

AUDIBLE: Please let the producers know that the narrators are getting horrible reviews.

Ahhhh maybe it's just too much to expect for whatever followed DvC but man, it was a let down. Good history lesson though.
