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/ Wardstone Chronicles Series-Book #7...
The Last Apprentice: Rise of the Huntress, 7 CDs [Complete & Unabridged Audio Work] - Joseph Delaney

I'm on the 7th of 13 books in this series and so far it hasn't gotten old yet. In this installment, the war is in progress and enemy soldiers have been ransacking the counties. When Tom, Alice & the Spook return home from Greece they find the Spook's home, including his massive library of priceless books, burnt down, the bogart has fled & the witches have escaped. They end up fleeing to an island that they think we'll be a safe haven but from the moment they disembark they encounter even more problems including the bone witch, Bony Lizzie. 


This series never lacks adventure and I really like the characters and enjoy seeing how they develop. The audio narrator is also fantastic so until the stories get old or I run out of books I'm going to keep on listening...

The Last Apprentice/ Wardstone Chronicles Series-Book #6...
Clash of the Demons - Joseph Delaney,Christopher Evan Welch

This has been a very consistent series; all of the books have been really good. I just finished the audio version of this sixth book, Clash of the Demons, and I liked it just as much as the other ones. 


In this installment, Mam, Tom's mother, enlists the help of Tom, Alice, the Spook, the Pendle witches, Bill Arkwright and the assassin Grimalkin to travel to Greece to help her battle the Ordeen. Of course, the fighters of the dark are reluctant to actually join forces with their dark enemies but they agree that it's the only chance they have of successfully destroying the Ordeen.


In the end, a few lives are lost and Tom makes some heavy sacrifices that I'm sure he'll have to answer to the Fiend for in the near future. Overall, it was an entertaining story with all of the characters battling together. I also enjoyed the change of scenery to Greece and I'm curious to see how things play out between Tom and the Fiend.

Water Witches...
Wrath Of The Bloodeye - Joseph Delaney

Wrath of the Bloodeye is the fifth book in The Last Apprentice/Wardstone Chronicles series. All of the main characters, Tom, Alice and the Spook are once again battling the dark. Tom has a temporary new master, Bill Arkwright, for six months to teach him all of the things he needs to know to battle water witches. He gets to put that knowledge to use pretty quickly. Alice, my favorite character and Tom get into some trouble with the Spook in this one so I'm looking forward to the next book to see what happens with that.  


My son likes listening to this series with me in the car too. We really like the narrator and the voices he uses for the characters. There is never a dull moment either so once we start listening to him, we both get right into the story. Overall a really fun series! Moving on to book six...

Spook's Destiny (Wardstone Chronicles)
Dean Koontz Omnibus: Strangers / The Voice of the Night / The Mask - Dean Koontz *Spoiler Alert*
Enjoyed this 8th book in the Spook's series. More battles against the dark for Tom and Alice, the Spook, Grimalkin and the characters they meet along the way.
I particularly liked the part where everyone fought to bind and behead the Fiend. Fantastic detail and made me feel like I was there alongside them.
Great characters, well written and a good plot. Enjoyable instalment.
