The Last Apprentice/ Wardstone Chronicles Series-Book #8...
Rage of the Fallen: Wardstone Chronicles / Last Apprentice, Book 8 - Patrick Arrasmith,Christopher Evan Welch,Joseph Delaney

Rage of the Fallen is the 8th book in The Last Apprentice series by Joseph Delaney. Tom, the Spook's apprentice, has made a lot of enemies in his three years fighting the dark. One of his enemies, Morrigan -the goddess of witches has told him not to ever set foot in her homeland of Ireland but the war is still raging in their own country so Tom, the Spook & Alice must flee there anyways. His other very powerful enemy, the Fiend, is also still hunting him in hopes of catching him unguarded. The Spook decides that it's time to go on the offensive and bring the Fiend down so Tom joins forces with Grimalkin- the witch assassin, who trains him and helps him battle and bind the Fiend once and for all. 

 

After eight really well written books I'm starting to run out of things to say! All of them have been so good and this one was no different. The audio narrator, Evan Welsh, is just marvelous! I think it would be extremely hard to talk like a witch or demon or boggart etc. but he does it so effortlessly and he sounds just like what you'd expect a creature of the dark to sound like. If you're a fan of these type of stories, then you can't go wrong with this series. It's perfect for older kids as well as adults.

The Last Apprentice: Rage of the Fallen (Book 8) - Joseph Delaney Now that war has come to the County, the Spook, Tom and Alice fleed, first going to Mona Island and now, Ireland. Tom has been dreading coming to Ireland, as he was warned by a Celtic Witch that if he ever came to Ireland, a very powerful Goddess would take her revenge. But they have no choice, they must work in Ireland until it is safe to return. But the dark is strong there and Tom has much to worry about. He hopes he'll be able to survive whatever happens.Wow. There is so much I want to say, but I don't want to spoil it for anyone else. I just know with this book, a lot has changed. Not just for Tom, but everyone. I feel bad for all of them because it's hard to know what to do in their situations. They all have had to do things that go against their beliefs. I just know with this book a lot has changed and it made me a little teary eyed at parts. It was great as always.

The Last Apprentice: Rage of the Fallen (Book 8)
The Last Apprentice: Rage of the Fallen (Book 8) - Joseph Delaney Nice follow-up to the series. I'm not going to review this seriously because it's a very simple series and nothing too complicated goes on inside of this book. I keep reading it because .. frankly because I started it and I want to see how it ends.

Only read it if you like witches, magical creatures and children of 14 that behave more mature than adults do.

Rage of the Fallen (Last Apprentice Series #8)
The Last Apprentice: Rage of the Fallen (Book 8) - Joseph Delaney I've never been a huge fan of horror books. Or movies. Or video games. I just have never particularly liked horror stuff. However, reading The Last Apprentice series is an entirely different matter. Rage of the Fallen is the eight book in the series, and though I'm typically not a fan of a long series of books, The Last Apprentice is one of my favorites. Joseph Delaney is a fantastic author, giving a great mixture of action or horror. There are certain scenes in this book that will inevitably send chills running down your spine. In a good way, of course. One thing I absolutely love about this series of books is that it is constantly fulls of plot twists, as well as cliffhangers. Ever think to yourself, "I'll read just one more chapter, then I'm putting the book down." Good luck doing that with The Last Apprentice. There is a constant sense of danger going on, with the characters constantly going through challenge after challenge, up until the very last page of the book. And after that, there'll be another book that you just can't wait to get your hands on. This book is a consistent roller coaster ride of action. Another awesome thing about Delaney's writing is that he never hesitates with violence. Monsters eating people, people beheading monsters, people carrying a monster's head around in a sack, suicidal goats. And since I typically find monster-fighting in books to be quite awesome, this is something In greatly enjoy. I would recommend this book to fans of a horror-themed book. Delaney mixes all sorts of mythological gods and goddesses (Pan, the Morrigan, Hephaestus) in with all sorts of monsters (witches, boggarts, thin old guys who will suck your blood) and there is a certain level of creepiness going on throughout. Read at your own risk, preferably alone in your room at night for added effect.-AustinReadingteen.net
