Audible Editor Reviews

Christopher Evan Welch's strong and spirited presentation enhances this outstanding tale. Welch skillfully presents the appealing Tom Ward as he learns the ins and outs of being a spook's apprentice. Most exciting is Tom's verbal sparring with some very creepy-sounding tricksters. A bit of fun enters an otherwise dark story when the cat who does the cooking purrs as her delicious cooking is complimented by hungry men. Conversations about Tom's family and his mixed reaction to being saved by Alice Dean bring reality to the story. The conclusion assures listeners that the next installment will answer their many questions.

Great YA Spooky Series

This is a great series. Unfortunately, Audible has dropped the ball on this one. While they have books 1, 2, and 3... this is not book 4, it's book 5, and book 4 (The Last Apprentice: Attack of the Fiend) is currently found nowhere on the site.

So if you are going for the whole series be prepared to miss one, or read it in print.

Scary! Better than Potter, IMO

I know a lot of people won't agree with me on the "better than Potter" comment, but I enjoy it much more. I've read all of the Potter books, but this series is more appealing to my tastes. I still find it funny that it's geared towards kids, because each of the books in the Apprentice series has some seriously frightening stuff in them. Enough to frighten this horror-story seasoned adult...

I hope Delaney keeps on turning them out. I'll keep on buying!
