Revenge of the Witch - Joseph Delaney
Revenge of the Witch is the first novel in the Last Apprentice series. Thomas Ward is the seventh son of a seventh son. Thomas is almost thirteen years old, and he can't inherit his family's farm, so Thomas is going to take a chance as the apprentice to the Spook. The Spook is the one person who protect farms and villages of the county from things that go bump in the night. The Spook handles witches, ghasts, boggarts, and all manner of wicked creatures. Thomas has a lot to learn. He'd better learn quick. Thomas is the 30th apprentice to the Spook, and 10 of the previous apprentices are dead. This is a great scary story for kids of all ages, but not too scary. Highly recommended.
