Things can never be the same again.
The Spook and his apprentice, Thomas Ward, have returned to the county after a long journey and a hard battle. But their troubles are far from over. Their home has been over-run by enemy soldiers. The Spook's house is in ruins, the boggart protecting it has fled, and the malicious witches imprisoned in the gardens have escaped.
Tom, Alice, and the Spook must flee, too, across the ocean to the island of Mona. And it's on Mona that this small band fighting against the dark will face an old enemy grown terrifyingly powerful. Will they be able to vanquish an evil that crawls beneath the ground itself? At what cost?
Will Tom and the Spook ever be able to return home?
I have read all of "The Last Apprentice " books, so far, I am in complete awe of this series. Joseph Delaney has true talent in writing. This series has a great story line and all of the books keep you waiting for more. When I picked up this book in my public library, I was just looking for something to read. after the first few pages, i was snagged. I highly recomend this series for anyone. The audiobook version is just as good if not better as the actual thing.
Rise of the huntress
This series of books is the best thing I've read in a long time. This book is at the top of that list. Only wish he would make the story a little broader for each book so that it doesn't seem so short. Can't wait for the next book!
Perfect for adults and children
From chapter one you will be sucked into the action and you won't be able to stop listening.
