Okay...first let give a sort of introduction. I liked this book, and that's a relief as the last several YA books I've read have been, disappointing. Since I read the Harry Potter books (each as it came out) "with" my own children (though they were grown by the time the series completed) I've con...

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 protagonist (and narrat...

The Spook’s Sacrifice is a very different book compare to the other series in The Spook, in this book they’re fighting against a powerful dark, old god in a completely different land; Greece, a mystery place. And witches are they’re allies, they have the same goal that is to destroy the old god n...

3.75*Let's get right down to it. I didn't like Grimalkin always referring to her "witchy eyes." It's a stupid complaint, but there it is.Some have expressed disappointment over a male author writing female characters. I'm not sure why that is, at least in this case. Is it because she's tough and ...

The seventh book about the seventh son of a seventh son, what could go wrong? I confess a bias for loving this series from book 1, and this entry does not disappoint. Overall, I like the style of writing, which is light, and the pacing of the action, which is fast. In this book, I like Tom’s c...

This book was more tightly written because the mission was solely on one objective. There were many answers finally given to questions that had come up throughout the series. I can't wait to start book 7. I know in my last review I said the illustrations were most helpful in moving the story a...

So why have I given this book such a tough rating?The answer is simple. from this book and onwards, the world Mr Delaney build gets ripped to shreds. The story becomes one of herculian proportions and irish legends. This book is in my opinion the moment this series broke. I really liked the first...

Here the spook's apprentice moves to Ireland for a year and fights a bewildering mixture of monsters from folklore and imagination. First there are jibbers, creatures rationalised as ghosts trapped by a witch's spell. Second, there are the "Celtic witches" who follow the Morrigan (a medieval god ...

Again, this is strange as I read this book under a different title Last Apprentice Clash of the Demons, but clearly the same book as described in the reviews. Odd and confusing! Nevertheless, still loving this series. I am happy to say the characters are developing nicely, with just the right ...
