This week our hosts have read The Last Apprentice: Revenge of the Witch by Joseph Delaney (or The Wardstone Chronicles: The Spook’s Apprentice for the UK, still by Joseph Delaney). They are pretty amused by the main character’s inability to do as he’s told and considerably less amused by the Spook’s generalizations about women. But over all, they are ready to continue on with this series and to see how the filmmakers will interpret it in the upcoming Seventh Son.
