The Last Apprentice: Rise of the Huntress

By Joseph Delaney
Rating: 4 stars

This is book 7 in the Last Apprentice series, which I am beginning to think will never end!  But hooray for this entry, because Bony Lizzie is back!  The war in the County has found the Spook's house and burned it down, so the Spook, Tom and Alice all head for a nearby island and relative safety.  Until Tom and Alice are captured and discover the evils of a creature called a buggane that sucks away your soul.  But even worse, the island soon comes under the power of Alice's evil bone witch mother, Bony Lizzie, set free when the Spook's house burned.  Lizzie is able to tap into the buggane's store of power to become even more dangerous than normal and the island is living in fear as she mercilessly kills off those who oppose her.  Can Tom, Alice and the Spook finally bring Lizzie to an end and escape?  Fans will cheer for this next creepy addition in the series, and look forward to whenever the big face-off with the Fiend will eventually come about.
