Publisher's Summary

The second book in a new trilogy from Joseph Delaney, the author of the internationally best-selling Last Apprentice series.
Tom Ward is now spook of the county, and with his apprentice, Jenny, he continues the fight against boggarts, witches, and terrifying new creatures of the dark. Together with the witch assassin Grimalkin, Tom and Jenny lead an army into battle against a dangerous enemy - but it all goes catastrophically wrong.
The situation seems hopeless until Alice - Tom's lost love and a powerful witch - appears. But Alice had turned to the dark: Can Tom trust her now?
Joseph Delaney's deliciously scary imagination continues Tom's saga, introducing new listeners to the struggle against the encroaching dark and taking longtime fans back to familiar settings, where they will find old friends - and old enemies.
Perfect for every listener who loves thrills, chills, action, and adventure - no prior knowledge of the Last Apprentice series is necessary!

Regarding Narrator

What did you love best about The Dark Army?

I understand about the new narrators. No, they are not as good as Christopher Evan Welch. Sadly, Mr. Welch died due to complications of cancer on December 2, 2013.

I struggled to finish this one after multiple attempts. I don't know how to explain it but the best I can say is wordy and over explained. I love the Apprentice series but this one felt like listening to a dictionaries of people and their agendas and the story felt all over the place. It may be me and I will attempt to listen again but for some reason I couldn't get hooked. By the end of the book I still feel as if I only know a fraction of the story line with holes and blanks that didn't sink in. Like reading a boring text book for a research paper. You can read the same paragraph multiple times and still be clueless as to what was truly said. Has sections that are awesome and captivating but lags in between losing my attention. I prefer the previous reader as well. I got lost listening to multiple new voices after being so use to my usual reader from the Apprentice series. I could no longer identify the characters by voice which felt strange to me. I felt a personal connection to my characters voices. I lost that connection through new voices in this book.
