Customer Reviews of The Last Apprentice: The Spook's Tale: And Other Horrors


Rated 3 out of 5 by from 7th son of a 7th son As a novel on it's own, I would not recommend the spook's tale. It is very short and doesn't keep a story going. However it gives great back round on Gregory and Grimalkin. I did not like the short story on Alice and felt it didn't give me anymore knowledge about her character. I would say that if you love the series, definitely get this novel after reading wrath of the bloodeye. (Not before or after)
