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?

Great story, 1 letdown

The overall story was amazing and every second will have you on edge. the only complaint I have is that the big fight, with an unparalleled evil, seemed short, and easier than I had hoped for. There could have been a little more of a struggle when they fight the *spoiler*. But it was all over too quickly.

Constantly improving

As the tales goes on it is proving to only be better with each page. The growth of the characters and the trials they face, draw you in and cause worry and pride to surge through you. It is hard to tell which path either of them will take and what lay before them. To learn the answers to each rising question and nagging doubt, you are pressed to read on.

Christopher Evan Welch's performance is absolutely outstanding. His voices are incredible, he does atleast 30 throughout the series, all unique and great.

Exciting listen

I love everything about these books, I haven't been able to stop listening. It's like binge watching a Netflix series. I am especially happy that they use the same narrator throughout the series (at least so far) and he does a wonderful job.

A great entry in the series

Evan Welch does a fantastic job yet again with his reading. Delaney’s story continues to grip you and envelope you into the world of the Dark.

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.

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.
