The Last Apprentice

The Last Apprentice, Revenge of the Witch by Joseph Delaney is the first book in a series about the Spook and his apprentice. The Spook is a former priest turned witch hunter. He doesn't just hunt them, he makes sure that they no longer bother other people. He does not burn them or kill them, he imprisons them in a way that keeps them from harming other innocent people. The Spook's apprentice is almost 13. Tom is the seventh son of a seventh son and he's left handed to boot. He has special abilities that have caused him some problems in the past. However, these abilities are the very thing that may keep him alive while he learns how to be a spook. He is tested in his ability to judge people and situations throughout the book. Sometimes he makes mistakes, and he just has to learn things the hard way. The Spook can only teach him so much. The rest is up to Tom. I won't tell you how it turns out, you have to read this one for yourself.
