The Last Apprentice (#1) Revenge of the Witch by Delaney
The county Spook, who rids the villages of witches, ghosts, and boggarts, has had many apprentices. All have failed. Now, though he is only thirteen, Tom Ward is the Spook’s new apprentice. Tom must learn how to bind and banish evil, and he must do what none of the other apprentices have done: survive.
Absolutely impossible to put down, this gripping, spine-tingling bestseller from the UK is the first in a series sure to be a hit with fans of fantasy series such as Septimus Heap, Artemis Fowl, and Harry Potter—and a must-have on every shelf (or hidden under every bed) for Halloween!
