An interesting story about ye ol' apprentice broadening his horizons. New horrible creature to deal with, etc.

My issue with this was the definition of the fiend as the dark, but no corresponding force for the light. The line between dark & light is continuing to be blurred and the Spook is presented as an old fool for not using the dark against the dark. ( )

More than once we fear the worse with the fend chasing Tom. And the scenes where he shows himself are amazing. ( )

Water Witches...

Wrath of the Bloodeye is the fifth book in The Last Apprentice/Wardstone Chronicles series. All of the main characters, Tom, Alice and the Spook are once again battling the dark. Tom has a temporary new master, Bill Arkwright, for six months to teach him all of the things he needs to know to battle water witches. He gets to put that knowledge to use pretty quickly. Alice, my favorite character and Tom get into some trouble with the Spook in this one so I'm looking forward to the next book to see what happens with that.

My 10-year old son likes listening to this series with me in the car too. We really like the narrator and the voices he uses for the characters. There is never a dull moment either so once we start listening to him, we both get right into the story. Overall a really fun series! Moving on to book six...

Wrath of the Bloodeye --- just might be my favorite in The Last Apprentice series to date. It is the fifth book, and intriguing and compelling. After a band of military deserters over power and attempt to sell Thomas Ward into the army as a soldier,the Spook, Old Gregory, wants to toughen up his young apprentice. Also, he is concerned about the Fiend (from book 4) being loose, and possibly still after Ward.

The decision is made that for six months, Bill Arkwright (a former apprentice and current Spook in a neighboring County), will teach Ward. They will focus on fighting and defending ones self. Arkwright has additional demons that are out of control, and though Gregory is aware of them, he still believes sending Ward is the best move. Not wanting to be away from Alice, Ward reluctantly agrees to the temporary assignment.

The newest threat is Morwena, a water witch. Where many witches cannot cross running water, a water witch thrives in it. They are very dangerous. Arkwright and Ward must battle the creature. It looks like the Fiend is closing in on Ward as well.

With dangerous bogs, and rising tides, with people kidnapped, and witches everywhere, Ward finds himself in a desperate place where he must choose between doing what is right, and doing what will save more lives. Choices are all around him. Many will only serve to anger Gregory. Most will save his life.

Great secrets of family lineage are revealed. The book ends on a terrible cliff hanger. I want to say more about how upsetting the last few chapters are, but will not spoil it for readers.

All I can tell you is I am thrilled I have Book 6 sitting right beside me!

This is starting to be my favorite horror fantasy book franchise. I really like this franchise because the details helps me explain what is happening in this book. It is scary, and wicked because it has witches in this book franchise. Again this is one of my favorite horror fantasy book franchise ever ( )

"I've already drunk my fill of blood, so live a little longer. Breathe for a while and watch what's about to unfold."

Thomas Ward has spent two years as the Spook's apprentice. He's faced unimaginable peril, and survived. But a new danger has emerged: an ancient water witch, Bloodeye, is roaming the County intent on destroying everything in her path. To strengthen his skills, Tom is sent to the far north to train with the demanding Bill Arkwright. Arkwright lives in a haunted mill on the edge of a treacherous marsh, and his training methods prove to be harsh and sometimes cruel. Will Tom's new bag of tricks be enough to overcome a critical mistake that leaves him confronting Bloodeye on his own?
