I do enjoy the last apprentice series. I know it is juvenile fiction but it is very entertaining. In every book there is growth from all the main characters and it does not feel repetitive. Every story is its’ own story and the addition of the new characters (whom usually die) are indeed well thought and rounded. The addition of Tom’s two feral aunts are the highlight of this story for me. Also, Alice…sigh…she is just great. Tom is just crazy not to appreciate her more…but I guess trying not to die constantly can do that to you. Entertaining read!
