The Last Apprentice: Clash of the Demons (Book 6) (英语) 平装 – 2010年7月27日
“Anything but tame.” (Horn Book (starred review) )
Praise for The Last Apprentice series: “This is the stuff of skin-prickling campfire stories.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review) )
“The Last Apprentice series continues to be one of the best written of the last several years.” (ALA Booklist )
“A gleefully chilling, eerily familiar tale that will leave readers whistling nervously in the graveyard while eagerly awaiting the next installment.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred review) )
Joseph Delaney lives in Lancashire, England, in the middle of boggart territory.
Thomas Ward's mother (mam) is coming to visit. She has something important to discuss. Truns out she is about to embark on quest. She needs her son's help. And The Spook's. They need to travel to mam's hometown in Greece. The Ordeen is about to return to earth. It happens every seven years. She gets stronger each time. With the Fiend loose (previous books), and the ordeen coming, the entire world is in danger of being taken over by dark forces. The only problem -- Mam's other alleys include the witches from Pendle.
The Spook refuses to help. He will not join forces with evil to fight evil. He tells Thomas Ward to make a choice. If Thomas decides to help his mother, then he can forget about his apprenticeship. It is a tough choice, and Thomas is not sure what is the right thing to do. All he knows for sure is that he can't turn his back on his mother.
We get to see Spook, Bill Arkwright. The journey is long and dangerous. Ordeen is about to wake up, and the Fiend is ready to attack the group. Sacrifices are made, difficult choices are made, and heartache is shared by all ... by all who survive.
Another fantastic book by Joseph Delaney. Getting ready to start Book 7 next.
Author of Damn the Dead, and Young Blood: The Nightbreed Saga
