The Ghost Prison (2013)
3.67 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: A good, short ghost story for children. Beautifully illustrated and a quick, easy read that's still compelling enough to hold the interest of kids and the adults who may happen to be reading it to them as a bedtime story. I kept trying to stop reading and got the standard "Nooo...
A Prisão Mal-Assombrada (2014)
3.66 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: Took a break from reading and had been too busy from work to actually stop, sit down, and read. Decided to pick up a quick, easy read and saw that The Ghost Prison was the perfect length. The book was about an orphan named Billy and his tale of becoming a night shift guard at a p...
Ghost Prison (2013)

review 1: A cute, short story about a boy who takes a job as a prison guard for a prison that's haunted. After Billy Calder has a rough first day, things seem to be looking up as he gets the hang of guarding a ghost prison on the graveyard shift. But the one who requested he be put on th...
Le cachot de la sorcière (2014)
3.66 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Received the e-galley from NetGalley. Delaney does a great job weaving a creepy, spooky story. The short length and engaging plot make it a good choice for reluctant readers. The illustrations match the tone of the book perfectly and complement the storyline. The narrative has th...
The Spook's Bestiary (2010)
4.07 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: The Spook's Bestiary is an ok book. It wasn't exactly what I thought it was going to be, but it was still was ok. It is a book describing the monsters throughout The Spook's Apprentince, known as The Last Apprentice in the United States. It had short stories every so often about ...
A New Darkness (2014)
4.08 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: I don't think I've ever been this utterly enraged at an ending of a book before. I was angered about the ending of Gone With the Wind, but this was a different anger. I had to put the book down and yell in anger and protest before I picked it back up to finish the last few page...
Rage of the Fallen (2011)
4.26 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: Another fine addition to the series. This is the 8th book in The Last Apprentice series and it was even more fantastic than the previous books.Tom has landed in Ireland with the Spook and Alice where they intend to bind the Fiend who is the devil.Delaney manages to put his charac...
Spook's: A New Darkness (2014)
3.34 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Tom Ward is the new Spook of Chipenden. His apprenticeship was cut short, but he's trained enough to continue on as a Spook for the County. And things have been relatively quiet as of late. Until girls start dying.Then Tom meets Jenny who says she knows what is killing the girls ...

review 1: Having just barely survived the demons on the island of Mona, Thomas, the Spook, and Alice travel to Ireland. Thomas is plagued by nightmares of a witch he and another spook killed months ago. One that threatened her goddess Morrigan would take revenge on Thomas if he ever steppe...
Clash of the Demons (2009)
4.2 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Mais um das aventuras do Caça-feitiço. Desta vez, o livro começa com uma mênade em 'busca' de Thomas; temos um pouco de história das lâmias; e a mãe de Thomas quer que ele vá com ela à Grécia combater as trevas... mas a um alto custo; Bill Arkwright junta-se ao grupo e John Grego...
Spook's Sacrifice (2010)
4.2 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: The 6th book in the series and the 2nd I've read. Received from the publisher via a goodreads giveaway, in return for a review.Tom, the spook's apprentice, has to go on a long adventure in order to defeat the Ordeen. There are lots of battles along the way, lots of different char...
Rise of the Huntress (2000)
4.18 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: I really love this series, but felt this book was a little lacking. We've already dealt with Bony before, it was like there wasn't a new enemy, so Joseph Delaney brings out an old one. I'm also kind of depressed about the Spook's declining powers. And I was kind of hoping that...
I Am Grimalkin (2000)
4.22 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: First of all, I have to say (because I had this question) that this book is definitely part of the series and not a stand-alone, so don't skip it like I almost did.Grimalkin is one of my favorite characters from this series, and it's good to get more information on her background...
Lure of the Dead (2012)
4.22 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Joseph Delaney has never disappointed me in all the books I have read that are written by him. Lure of the Dead just builds onto that. Tom is growing up before my eyes and life as he knows it is changing. I love reading this series because it's an adventure in itself to read it. ...
O Sacrifício (As Aventuras do Caça-feitiço, #6) (2012)
4.2 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Wonderful story. The series' story never gets boring.
review 2: I liked this one.... it had suspenseful moments and time when I could not put it down.
The Spook's Nightmare (2000)
4.18 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: I don't know... maybe I'm suffering from Spook fatigue from reading 7 of these books in a row. But, it took some effort to finish this, and I felt like a lot of it was just repetition.Same old Spook, with his frustrating black/white views. Same Tom, stumbling too quickly into tro...
Spook's Nightmare (2010)
4.18 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: This might be a review that I have to come back to and revise after I've finished the series, but as of now I feel like this book added nothing to the storyline. It seems as if it was haphazardly added and was unnecessary. There wasn't even any real character development aside fr...
Grimalkin the Witch Assassin (2012)
4.22 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: This series is never not good. They are fast-moving stories filled with witches, beasts, fights, ghouls of every stripe and narrow escapes. They can also be gruesome but this is a horror series so that's no surprise. This book is a bit of departure in that Grimalkin is the protag...
Spooks: I Am Grimalkin (2012)
4.22 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: For now, the Fiend's been bound. Grimalkin, the Witch Assassin, has the Fiend's head and she is ready to take on anyone and any creature that may try to retrieve it.The narrator of the series has always been Tom. It's his view that has been in the series until this book. It's wha...
The Spooks Apprentice (2008)
3.65 of 5 Votes: 6
review 1: Interesting, if unremarkable, little book about a young lad apprenticed to the Spook. The Spook is a sort of Buffy Summers that protects mankind for little or no reward. The writing is extremely basic, so basic that it was in fact too easy to read at first. I had to sort of te...
Revenge of the Witch (2011)
3.87 of 5 Votes: 17
review 1: This is a VERY scary book. My heart skipped a few beats a few times, but I couldn't put it down. I don't think my mom thought it would be so scary when she checked it out for me at the library. And the back cover is right. Do NOT read after dark. It almost gave me nightmares when...
