Attack of the Fiend (The Last Apprentice #4)
Thomas Ward is the apprentice for the local Spook, who banishes boggarts and drives away ghosts. But now a new danger is threatening Tom's world. The witches are rising and the three most powerful clans are uniting in order to conjure an unimaginable evil.
Tom and the Spook set out to stop the witches before they unleash the demon. But when Tom finds himself on his own, he wonders if he has the courage and cunning to defeat the most powerful enemy he has ever encountered.
Attack of the Fiend was... okay... but it dreadily sounded very similar to Night of the Soul Stealer. Just different ideas of what happens, but if I didn't know any better, I'd guess it was bent off the same plot line/summary of what basically happens. So I didn't really like it... it was new, yes, with the witches planning to get together to summon the Fiend (the devil itself), but it still reminded me of Night of the Soul Stealer. Nevertheless, it still was OK. Thomas Ward learns mroe about who his mother truly is. A witch. And he grows more trust in Alice, a witch who once tricked him but they are now friends... so I guess it was OK.
