Reviewed by Cassandra, Teen Librarian at Mary Jacobs
Thomas Ward from the Last Apprentice series is back for a new adventure in A New Darkness. Battling creatures of the dark is the job of the local spook. However with Master Gregory gone the job has gone to Tom Ward who never finished his apprenticeship. With a new monster terrorizing the county it will not be an easy task for Tom. Especially since the only person who seems to know anything about the monster is Jenny, the 7th daughter of a 7th daughter who will only share what she knows if Tom takes her on as his apprentice.
This new, exciting arc of the Last Apprentice series hooks in where the series ended. It is fast paced, full of adventure, horror and mystery as a new type of monster threatens the villages of the county.
