A wonderful and terrifying series by a new writer about a young boy training to be an exorcist. Thomas Ward is the seventh son of a seventh son and has been apprenticed to the local Spook.

The job is hard, the Spook is distant and many apprentices have failed before Thomas. Somehow Thomas must learn how to exorcise ghosts, contain witches and bind boggarts. But when he is tricked into freeing Mother Malkin, the most evil witch in the County, the horror begins ...

3 CDs, approximately 3 hours.

    Comments about The Spook's Apprentice:

    Before the movie is released, this is an interesting 'sorceror's apprentice tale' about a boy who learns to become the town's exorcist and defender from ghouls. Some imagery is frightening in parts for little ones but it is nevertheless engaging with hard to predict characters. Would be interesting to see how the series turns out.
