Got myself a copy of the latest book in the Wardstone Chronicles/Last Apprentice

Ever since i picked up the first book in Joesph Delaney’s Wardstone Chronicles (or Last Apprentice in the US) I was completely hooked. Delaney paints a dark and atmospheric world rife with dangerous creatures and malevolent witches. Rarely, since Potter, has a series led me to follow it so voraciously. Each book is as addictive as the last and they truly earn the title of page turners. Following the adventures of Tom, the books detail his life as an apprentice to the Spook (a man who rids the world of evil, dark creatures) John Gregory.  With an intriguing, on-going plot arc involving an enemy non other than the Devil himself, Delaney’s books are truly awesome.

The series will consist of thirteen books, twelve of which are already available, along with three additional books that flesh out Delaney’s world. I received my copy of the twelfth book in the series only today and will no doubt start it immediately after finishing this post. 

If you haven’t already discovered this series then i implore you to do so. A movie, The Seventh Son, based on the first book in the series is due for release in October of this year.

About Sam Whitehouse

Sam spends most of his time in a different world to other people. If it isn’t one he’s created himself, it’s one he’s reading about. In the rare moments when this isn’t the case, Sam can either be found addicted to a sci-fi or crime show, re-watching Marvel movies, finishing up an assignment for his final year of studying Creative Writing at Sheffield Hallam University, or trying to get the dozens of ideas for stories in his head under some kind of control. Sam has lived in the same small village in Yorkshire, surrounded by countryside on all sides ever since he could remember. His childhood saw him get into plenty of scrapes climbing trees and crossing rivers and generally believing he was Indiana Jones. Sam gives credit to his Grandad for him wanting to be a writer, and his bedtime stories for keeping Sam’s imagination stoked. But credit must also go to Steven Spielberg, J K Rowling and Stephen King, who have provided plenty of inspiration over the years, too. Sam writes what he reads, and that is pretty much anything—save romance. Fantasy, thrillers, or crime: once an idea takes root, he can’t stop until the world, characters, and plot are on paper. A huge Marvel fan, Sam one day hopes to pen a screenplay for one of their movies, or direct one, or do anything at all related to one. Until then, he’ll stick to his own fantasy worlds and wait for Marvel’s phone call.
