Attack of the Fiend (Last Apprentice #04)by Joseph Delaney and Patrick Arrasmith
Synopses & Reviews
"I see your future clearly. Your master will be dead, and you will be alone. It would be better if you had never been born."
Thomas Ward is the apprentice for the local Spook, who banishes boggarts and drives away ghosts. But now a new danger is threatening Tom's world: the witches are rising and the three most powerful clans are uniting in order to conjure an unimaginable evil.
Tom and the Spook set out to stop the witches before they unleash the demon. But when Tom finds himself on his own, he wonders if he has the courage and cunning to defeat the most powerful enemy he has ever encountered.
"Delaney has created a fast-paced story with an abundance of action and spine-tingling horror." Children's Literature
"Dark chapter-head illustrations add a properly ominous air to the narrative, as do closing notes on each ghost, ghast, wight and worse he has met." Kirkus Reviews
In this fourth installment, three powerful witches plan to conjure up the devil himself. Tom Ward and Mr. Gregory (aka Spook) must avert the unthinkable. But first, Spook sends Tom to collect the trunks his mother left for him. What dark family secrets are inside? Illustrations.
