Here’s the third book book review of the last apprentice series ;)
It’s going to be a long, hard, cruel winter. And there couldn’t be a worse place to spend it than up on Anglezarke.
Thomas Ward is the apprentice for the local Spook, who captures witches and drives away ghosts. As the weather gets colder and the nights draw in, the Spook receives an unexpected visitor. Tom doesn’t know who the stranger is or what he wants, but the Spook suddenly decides it’s time to travel to his winter house, Anglezarke. Tom has heard it will be a bleak, forbidding place, and that menacing creatures are starting to stir somewhere on the moors nearby.
Can anything prepare Tom for what he finds there? What if the rumors about the evil beast called the Golgoth are true? And how much danger will Tom be in if the secrets the Spook has been trying to hide from the world are revealed?
Okay, this book just gave me the creeps. It literally surpassed the spook meter compared to the first and second book of the series. I mean come on, the place where Tom and Mr. Gregory was staying in, Anglezarke? Seriously? Anglezarke is just one of the most terrifying places that just entered my imagination. I just don’t know why Mr. Gregory has a need to stay in that scary place. Plus, it’s so damp and chilly. Ugh whyy?! Well, the reason will be said in the book but you know, he can have another way of doing and treating those things. I just can’t even explain my feels about the Spook’s secret. He tells Tom that he must not do this or that but he, the Spook, himself had forbidden his own rule, I mean code. I mean what?! Plus Alice’s actions? Uhm nope, not the smartest thing to do even though you are a witch. But you know, this was so well written that my emotions are just so jumbled up and I seriously don’t know what to totally feel about it. But one thing for sure. It was a great book and the series so far is just amazing.
Rating 5 out of 5 ;)
