Publisher's Summary

The Last Apprentice series follows the terrifying adventures of the Spook's apprentice, Thomas Ward. But Tom's is only one story. There are others.

The Spook himself was once an apprentice. How did he begin his training?

And what of Alice, the young witch who is Tom's closest ally? How did she overcome her dark past?

What did the witch assassin Grimalkin do to become the most deadly and feared witch in the county?

And, collected in a gallery of horrors, discover the rest of the county's menacing villains and relive the vicious battles waged against them.

Enter a land where creatures of the dark creep out of the shadows. Do you dare?

Almost like an INFO-MERCIAL

I love this series but this particular book is even shorter then it looks. Over HALF is short scene tellings of the previous books in the series. Personally they should have put this in the free for members section.

A little entertaining but not really worth a credit.
One redeeming factor, they had the same great narrator.

THIS WAS THE WORST BOOK EVER!!!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

If it was actually a story like the other last apprentice books all it did was tell a bunch of stuff we all ready knew.

What do you think your next listen will be?

The next last apprentice book that is really a story.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Christopher Evan Welch?

The narrator was fine just the story was awful.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

NO!!

Any additional comments?

I really like the series but this was just the worst book I have ever read in my life and that is a fact. Do not buy this book!!!!!!!!! All it was was a short clip of every book in the series.
