    1. Joseph Delaney PatrickArrasmith

      Joseph Delaney is a full time writer living in Lancashire, in the heart of Boggart territory He first got the idea for the Wardstone Chronicles series when he moved to the village where he lives now and discovered there was a local boggart a man like me needs boggarts around He made a note in his notebook a story about a man who hunts boggarts and years later when he had to come up with an idea at short notice developed this into The Spook s Apprentice , the first book in the series.He continues to draw upon the folklore of Lancashire and has acquired much local knowledge over the years which he tweaks and modifies to create his fictional world Another source of inspiration has been Lancashire s varied and atmospheric landscape Many of the locations in the County are based on actual places in Lancashire In the early days of his writing career Joseph worked as a teacher at a Sixth Form College his subjects were English, Film and Media Studies He used to get up early and write every morning before work That way he could write a book a year which promptly got rejected When the Americans bought the series he decided to give up teaching and write full time Prior to teaching he worked as an engineer in his twenties, completing an apprenticeship just like Tom Ward in the spook s books.Joseph describes his method of writing as a process of discovery He doesn t plot too far ahead and often doesn t know what is going to happen until he writes it down In other words he makes it up as he goes along He prefers writing dialogue to description, in which he says he is a minimalist and leaves much to the reader s imagination He has a new series underway, Arena 13 This is a complete departure from the world of ghosts, ghasts and boggarts and centres on a young boy called Leith and surprisingly, an Arena and an evil creature called Hob Joseph has three children and nine grandchildren and is a wonderful public speaker available for conference, library and bookshop events.The Spook s Apprentice, The Spook s Curse and The Spook s Secret have all been shortlisted for the Lancashire children s Book for the Year Award The Spook s Apprentice is the winner of both the Sefton Book Award and the Hampshire Book Awardom publisher s website

    1. The Spook and his apprentice Tom Ward settled in Spook s winter residence For Tom this is the first time he visits the place and it is spooky sorry, the bad pun was not intentional The winter means reduced mobility, so it makes sense for Spook to live close to a big concentration of evil forces This time it is not just random supernatural baddies that give troubles, but Spook s past mistakes caught up with him Sometimes it is up to Tom by his lonely self to try to fix the numerous problems I fou [...]


    2. I m re listening to these The Spook s Apprentice series were some of the first audiobooks I listened to I loved them back then and I love them now Great series.Update listened to this again with my kids on our school trips 16 year old son s rating 4 stars10 year old son s rating 4.5 starsMy rating, this time around 4 stars But I ll keep it at 5 stars Just because.


    3. This is the third in a series as I m sure you spotted and while I like them I can t quite bring myself to go above 4 stars.A friend here on mentioned that her biggest complaint with the Wardstone Chronicles was is that Tom doesn t change much That is so far true To be fair however the 3 books I ve read so far take place in a period of months less than a year As this book ends and spring approaches Tom is about to celebrate not really a good word for it I suppose a year as the Spook s Apprentice [...]


    4. OMG I will always love this series This is the third book of the series that I ve read and it never disappointed me by far There s just and adventure in each book that I ve read So, Mr Gregory has a lot of untold secret The stranger that came up to Mr Gregory s house at Chipenden is actually Morgan, the failed apprentice who chose the dark and wanted to raise Golgoth, The Lord of Winter I m glad that Morgan dies in the end but sad that Tom s dad died too and that he never got the chance to see [...]


    5. Wardstone Chronicles Book 3 The Spook s Secret Wow The series is just getting better and better with each page You can feel the characters growing with each breath It s so wonderful to see how Tom has grown do much since, he became the Spooks apprentice, both physically and mentally He is passionate about being the Spook and is confident and responsible Sometimes lazy, but still passionate This book has 3 antagonists, namely, Morgan, the Spooks Ex Apprentice, who has taken the dark path, Golgot [...]


    6. Much, much, MUCH better than the Spook s Curse, thank goodness In this third installment of the Wardstone Chronicles, Thomas Ward and his master, the Spook, head over to Anglezarke for the winter season While there, Tom uncovers secrets about the Spook s shady past, including a menacing former apprentice bent on destroying the Spook and the whole County Delaney s flair for descriptions has returned full force Like in The Spook s Apprentice, the setting played a substantial role in the shaping o [...]


    7. This third book in the series really stayed true to the title name The Spook s Secret.There were so much history and secrets glazing over the County and not only just the Spook s background, but some major side characters too I loved finding out about the Spook s past, in particular, especially when it was directly linked to Morgan or Meg because it gave them much substance as believable characters and drove on the plot of which some very surprising twists were thrown into the story, to keep r [...]


    8. This was my favorite in the series so far Where I thought that the second book kinda went back and forth a lot, this one kept moving forward in just the right paste It was never boring, always a lot of action going on I thought it was a really great book and I very much enjoyed it The only thing I am missing is the scary parts that I think the first book had In that one I was actually scared but there has not been that same feeling in number two or three in the same way, and I think that would m [...]


    9. Another installment in Mr Delaney s Wardstone Chronicles, bit by bit we are introduced to his wonderful dark universe for me it is a bit teen ish , first two books introduced to us the particular creepy crawlies that inhabit his particular world, boggarts, witches, ghasts, ghosts and a the Bane again I prefer to ask the people who read my rant rave section to discover by their own, rather than give spoilers For Book Three, the story of Thomas Ward continues, here we are introduced to some of th [...]


    10. I want to take the Harry Potter books away from every children and put these books in their hands instead I really love this series

    13. Another in the exciting adventure series featuring Tom Ward and his mentor, the Spook This time Tom and his mentor have to overwinter in the Spook s winter house The winter house has secrets that Tom s mentor keeps to himself about his life experiences Ultimately, with Tom s help, the Spook has to confront some of the consequences of his earlier life choices This tale seems darker in tone especially with the introduction into the story of one of the Spook s past apprentices that failed to comple [...]

    15. Another good Last Apprentice Some of the plot devices are getting a little tired everything would have gone a lot smoother if the kid had just told his friends what he was doing, etc and the plot is guessable, but the elements are still done solidly and the characters are interesting We finally get to meet a character that was introduced in a previous book I still like that Alice is kind of on the edge, good bad wise, and that it s her treatment by the good side that kind of keeps her there Also [...]


    16. Not bad More happened in this volume than in the previous one and the enemies felt appropriate to this place in the series than did the enemies in the second volume I also enjoyed the further insight into the Spook s past However, I swear the protagonist is getting and contemptible and foolish with each passing novel likewise, his mentor seems to learn nothing from his own repeated mistakes The author still manages to squeeze in another bit of shallow anti religious, anti clerical ranting, bu [...]


    17. This great series shows no signs of letting up If I could go back and give myself some books when I was 10, this series would definitely go with me.


    18. Can t wait to read the next one Story is perfect Apprentice growing ans master read it if you want to know




    19. The darkness hates the light This is a great series Book 3 and I m still really enjoying it The Spook is finally opening up to Tom and giving him information Along with still teaching and instructing, he s also allowing Tom real life times of facing something and having to think on is feet.And Tom is truly showing he can handle it He faces many things of evil in this story and shows he has been well trained but is also bright and creative He s getting stronger and better.But this one also shows [...]


    20. Each book is getting better than the last I like how Delaney can tell a focused, self contained story with each book, and at the same time advance his over arching plot There are two main threads in this book, both dealing with the Spook s past First, there is the central plot involving one of the Spook s failed apprentices, and his forays into the dark This is the main driver of the book, but probably the less interesting of the two main threads The second involves the thing in the basement In [...]


    21. Why does it have to be like this I asked bitterly Why does life have to be so short, with all the good things passing quickly Is it worth living at all Thomas Ward Thomas Ward, the protagonist of The Last Apprentice series, lives in a primitive time with his teacher, John Gregory, and witch friend, Alice, in a town called Chipenden Tom began his apprenticeship early in autumn, but now winter was approaching and he was now going to move to the Spook s winter house located outside the town of Angl [...]


    22. NECROMANCER lah yang menjadi sorotan utama petualangan spook kali ini Spook yang semakin cupu dan Alice yang makin cantik P Tom mah ke laut aja ngiri sama Tom, karena disukain Alice , Well, tapi harus d akui Tom itu hebat tetap tegar dengan semua cobaan yang dia hadapi dalam buku ini, dan bisa fokus dan ingat dengan tujuan utama tugas yang dia emban thumbup buat Tom dibuat sedikit kewalahan dengan kehadiran sang Necromancer Necromancer emang job paling hebat dan sangat berguna dalam pertempuran [...]

    24. This a part of a Young Adult series, which I recommend because the story is not only gripping, but the book stands on its own while referring to incidents that occurred in a previous book Thirteen year old Tom Ward is the Spook s last apprentice because the others didn t last He certainly has to be dedicated because his teacher not only gives him tedious chores but draws him into frightening adventures as they seek to push back the darkness that wants to invade the world Each character has his o [...]


    25. Review 2 July 15, 2016One of my favorite themes running through this series is that no one is perfect No one is wholly good or wholly evil The Spook counsels against girls with pointy shoes but has Meg Alice tells Tom that what the Spook is doing to Meg is wrong and Tom believes it, but also trusts the Spook I love that there isn t really a right answer most of the time, it s just Tom and all his friends doing the best they can Sometimes all our choices our bad and we just have to go with what w [...]


    26. After a great beginning for the series, I felt the plot for The Curse of Bane was logically weak This book, however, was a step back in the right direction Following the pattern of the two previous books, the Spook carries this story along i.e for me, he s the strongest character and the reason I keep reading He gets additional depth in the confrontations with Meg, Morgan and the stone chucker.Interesting take on purgatory and how our perceptions during mortality dictate our experiences in the n [...]


    27. I just finished two books by Joseph Delaney Curse of the Bane was good Night of the Soul Stealer is even better Mr Delaney creates a darkly textured and very believable world in which a traveling spook an his young apprentice fight against forces of darkness The threats they face include greedy inquisitors, rock hurling boggarts, shape shifters, and, best of all, witches Scary witches Really scary witches.Mr Delaney creates witches that are unique and original The punishment that they must suff [...]
