    As a big fan of Delaney's Last Apprentice series, I had to check this book out. But readers beware: this book was published for World Book Day, and was not meant (as some have mistakenly believed) to be a continuation of the series but rather, a supplement to the series and introduction for newcomers to the Last Apprentice universe. The book consists of three short stories and a small "gallery of villains" which includes a brief description and passage from other novels about certain villains fro As a big fan of Delaney's Last Apprentice series, I had to check this book out. But readers beware: this book was published for World Book Day, and was not meant (as some have mistakenly believed) to be a continuation of the series but rather, a supplement to the series and introduction for newcomers to the Last Apprentice universe. The book consists of three short stories and a small "gallery of villains" which includes a brief description and passage from other novels about certain villains from the series. The short stories center around present day-Spook John Gregory and the events that placed him on the path to becoming a Spook, a story about Alice's origins and training as a witch, and an origin story about Grimalkin, the witch assassin. John Gregory's story easily steals the show here -it's as chilling as the other Last Apprentice novels and gives some interesting insight into John's past. Grimalkin's story falls in the middle -it's well-paced and unique, but feels like it should have been more than a short story. Alice's story bothered me the most, primarily because it took place during book four of the series, rather than before the events of the series, and, frankly, didn't seem to add much to her character. All the information here is great back story and is good for fans who are new to the series, but The Spook's Tale and Other Horrors, even with its World Book Day backdrop, left me wanting more. Not just another book in the series, but full books about John, Alice or Grimalkin. Perhaps we'll see these in the future, but until then, I can't wait for more Last Apprentice.

    This book is more of an interlude or a supplement to The Last Apprentice series. It is well written and interesting nonetheless, but not as fantastic as a full-fledged book would have been. Although we don't have a long wait "Clash of the Demons" comes out the end of August '09. There are three stories in this book. The first details how the Spook became a Spook.

Nothing that is really surprising, but a decent story. The second story is about what happened to Alice when she was in Pendle right before Tom came to rescue her. This was my least favorite story of the bunch. Again no surprises and a very brief story. The third story made the book worth having. This was the story of how Grimalkin became a witch assassin. I think Grimalkin is a fascinating character and found this story to be an interesting read. It made me wish that Delaney would write some books from Grimalkin's point of view...maybe he can do that after he is done with Tom Ward's story :-) Overall I enjoyed this book. It is just filler for the main event though and I am eagerly awaiting "Clash of the Demons"!

    While not a book that can stand on it's own, "The Spook's Tale" is a good addition to the Last Apprentice series. In these three short stories three characters' backgrounds are shared. My favorite by far is Grimalkin, the witch assassin. Because really, don't the words "witch assassin" sound super cool and just a little bit scary? I wish these stories were longer with greater detail. I felt they only skimmed the surface and left me wanting more.

    The tale of how The Spook starts his own apprenticeship, a glimpse into when Alice first encountered Mab, and the history of Grimalkin. Didn't add much of substance, but an interesting glimpse into the lives and histories of some of our favorites from the series. (Of course, I'm more interested in Gregory's story about why he left the priesthood but, as we're told, that's a story for another time... ) The tale of how The Spook starts his own apprenticeship, a glimpse into when Alice first encountered Mab, and the history of Grimalkin.

    As well written as this is, I was left rather disappointed. This is a collection of short stories about the Spook and his past, but many at the end are simply chapters recycled from the actual "Spook's Apprentice" books. It's an okay read, but not a must.

    Another fun, spooky read! Loved this collection of stories that supplements The Last Apprentice series. I had already finished the novels but wanted to read this and am glad I did. It is a wonderful little glimpse into how John Gregory got his beginnings in the world of the supernatural and what led him to becoming an actual Spook. And there's a little tale that has some of Alice's inner thoughts as she is trapped in a tricky situation. And lastly, there's a tale about Grimalkin's youth and her b Another fun, spooky read!

And while this is a very quick read, it is full of adventure, witches and even a boggart. I definitely recommend it if you are a fan of this series!

    I knew this book wasn't a continuation of the series, I knew that it contained some short stories that involved the characters and their adventures, but I also wasn't sure when exactly to read it. I wasn't sure if it was all simply backstories of the characters involved or if was a sort of hindsight view into some of their actions pertaining to a certain book or books in the series. I was happy that the tone of the book hadn't changed from the tone used in the main series. The first story, center I knew this book wasn't a continuation of the series, I knew that it contained some short stories that involved the characters and their adventures, but I also wasn't sure when exactly to read it. I wasn't sure if it was all simply backstories of the characters involved or if was a sort of hindsight view into some of their actions pertaining to a certain book or books in the series. I was happy that the tone of the book hadn't changed from the tone used in the main series. The first story, centering around John Gregory's first meeting with the Spook that would later become his mentor, feels like the sort of backstory that can be read any time after the first book, possibly even before, but I feel it adds more to the Spook's character if it's learned after we have our initial idea about the Spook is formed. The second story focuses on Grimalkin, whether it adds more to her character I do not know, for I have not reached her appearance in the book series. Because of the type of backstory that this is, I feel it to be supplementary information, therefore suggesting it be read after meeting her in the series. The last tale is told from Alice's point of view during a time where she has been captured. Again, due to this capture happening after the first 2 books it feels more like something that should be read after knowing the initial story. What follows is a small directory listing the various villains Tom Ward is to face/has faced, and while it lists which book they are from I feel like it gives away just a hint too much of what happens in, what are supposed to be, tense moments of the original book. Therefore I suggest reading this selection of short stories after at least the 3rd or 4th book in the series.

    The largest portion of this book is a short story written from John Gregory's point of view, detailing his first encounter with witches and boggarts several years before he became a spook's apprentice. It was a decent story, but contained nothing that I found surprising or revelatory. The writing style was solid and comfortable, and it was good to be back in Delaney's misbegotten county. The second story I enjoyed a bit more, largely because I love Alice's manner of speech.

The second story I enjoyed a bit more, largely because I love Alice's manner of speech. It tells of the time when Mab and the Mouldheels captured and tortured Alice to get information so they could then capture Tom Ward. It's an episode that was left more or less to the imagination in Attack of the Fiend. I haven't yet read up to I Am Alice, but I enjoy her voice so much that I may raise these books on my list of priorities. (I haven't found the later books in any used bookstore, nor do they show up at our local Barnes & Noble. I would rather not get them on Kindle, but I've been reluctant to order them online. So I have come to more or less of a halt with this series.) After the second story the book takes a radical turn downhill. When it was published, the Grimalkin tale was probably pretty exciting and it featured a new voice. Unfortunately, the same material in this tale is covered in I Am Grimalkin. And it may even be lifted word for word. That redundancy, for me, severely cheapened what was already a slim volume. And then, there is a "gallery of villains" which consists of nothing but very short excerpts from the books that had already seen publication. So the entire last third of the book was basically a waste.

From the bottom of my heart... I Thank You ~teary-eyed~ Well, this story tells about a very, very, very short tale (Just little/tiny details) about the childhood days of the Spook. It was a story on how he met the dude (sorry I forgot the name. I have a weakness when it comes to memorizing people's namesakes, and yeah, even the fictional ones) who would teach him the art of Spook's trade. Anyways., it was kind of funny to think how young Gregory (view spoiler)[he actually wanted to be a priest, his 1st passion (hide spoiler)] and Tom were so much alike. Just read it if you want to know what I mean. But of course, I'm betting that Tom is more courageous than his master. :PP This book also tells short stories about Alice D., Grimalkin., Mother Malkin., etc. all of which you can read in the original series. Because the stories were all brief (Yeah, sort of disappointing) you cannot expect it to reveal a lot of things/details about the Spook's past. You aren't alone. 'am also craving, wanting, and hoping for the mysteries to be revealed. all in all., this book is a good read esp. to those avid fans of this book title. Oh yeah, just like me!

    This is part of The Last Apprentice series, but not a main entry in the series. Instead the book has three stories from three of the characters of the series.

This tale explains exactly how he met his master and experiences with the dark early in his life. I enjoyed the Spook's tale and honestly wouldn't mind if there would be another book written that was just about John Gregory and his training as a Spook. Alice's tale is about when she went to Pendle to find Tom's brother and his family. It explains how she was captured and when she eventually was rescued. Before that though, some is explained about Alice's life and how she came to be with Bony Lizzie. And the last tale is of Grimalkin and how she became a Witch Assassin. It's also explained why she dislikes the Fiend, but if you've read book nine 9, most of her tale will not be new to you. Next there is a gallery of villains, explaining a bit about each and has a sample from the book each they appear in. So, Although this isn't part of the main series, I still enjoyed it and I think any fans of the series will like it.

    The last apprentice spooks tales a fantastic book taking a new perspective of a famous character in the series Gregory. Now for people who don't know who Gregory he is was the spook for Tom the main character in the last apprentice books. In this book you'll see how Gregory grew up and he became a spook by telling through 3 short stories about how he became a spook.

The first stories was about how when he was a kid that h had a gift to see ghost same as his brother but he doesn't come into play in the stories but they both had the gift until one day a spook lost his apprentice so he gets to know Gregory. Then he becomes the spook apprentice. In the next story he tells how when he was in his teen years he talks about all his adventure when he was growing up. Until book three where sadly Gregory master died. this happens when he's adult but he became wiser and understood that his master was a great person who understood people's safety. This ends up leading to the first book when Gregory hires Tom as his apprentice. I would highly suggest people to read this that's if you did read the first one yet.

    I felt like the stories were too short, and not necessarily the story I was most interested in. I was more interested in Alice's past than what happened in the couple of days that she was separated from Tom. That story just felt obvious and unnecessary. We could have at least spent a little more time with Agnes, learning about what had happened in the couple of years since Alice had left, or even just getting to know her and Alice more, instead.

    Delightfully horrid as usual, but lacking in the depth and breadth of others in the series. This is a quick mash-up of one-off short stories that attempt to fill in the background of some of the major players, like the Spook's early days. Alice's story is disappointingly brief, while the story of how Grimalkin becomes the witch assassin is nasty and terrifying. No mention of Tom's mother either, which was also disappointing.

    Most fans of the series seem to misunderstand why this book was written. It is not meant to further a story, it's not even part of the 12-part series; it is a World Book Day book. On World Book Day, authors release small supplements to their stories (think of Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson and the Sword of Hades). These books are simply companions to the real stories, and are still highly enjoyable. Most fans of the series seem to misunderstand why this book was written.

    I wish Alice's story concentrated on her years with Bony Lizzie instead of her time in Pendle in Attack of the Fiend (book #4); and that Mr. Gregory's story told about why he quit the priesthood instead of just his first encounter with witches. Grimalkin's story was new to me, but I suspect I will learn more about her in future books, where she plays a more prominent role than she has so far. These stories pass time, but they don't provide any real unknown info. 3* = I Liked It.

    I enjoyed this book, but the tale of Alice I didn't like much. The sentences were very short making me a little frustrated while reading because there were extra details. My favorite was the story on Grimalkin, and I enjoyed learning of her past, and how she came to be. The Spook's story helped me understand a little more about him, and since reading that I have grown to like him a little more (don't ask why).

    This is an addition book, aside from the series with different point of view from the spooks, Alice and Grimalkin, and with different style of writing too according to the character.

    The best short story in this selection is about the witch assassin Grimalkin, and how she won her way into being the most fearsome assassin ever. It's pretty gory and graphic, but awesome all the same. The volume also gives some of John Gregory's past, and how he came to be a spook, as well as some of Alice Dean's background, and exciting clips from previous books.

    "The Spook's Tale: And Other Horrors" written by Joseph Delaney, is one of the best books I read. There are several different stories in this book that involve surviving thrilling events. It is very detailed with describing or introducing a thing or person. I'm into horror books so when I saw this, I knew it would be entertaining.

    Fun, spooky, and rather dark collection of short stories for young readers, who are apparently much, much more fearless than I was as a child. They have excellent art and some likable characters based on old folklore. I enjoy these books as a guilty pleasure, although this one was largely a commercial for the rest of the series.

    My favorite story was the first one. There we meet a young gregory 12 years old. He was so cute. The second story was about Alice. She is just everything. All the things she does for Tom is incredible. The last story was about Grimalkin again. This was a shorter story of a story we all ready read before.

    It was fun to read the back stories of some of the characters. I particularly liked Grimalkin's story. But really, I think the book just serves to keep fans excited while we wait for the next in the series to come out. It was fun to read the back stories of some of the characters.

    As with the other books in The Last Apprentice series, I liked this book. It is kind of an intermission book...mostly stories about the characters introduced in the series. Most of it I already knew but it was a fun read anyway. Looking forward to the release of the next book!

  30. 4 out of 5

    The story at the very beginning is good but this book is too short. Check it out from the library. The rest of the book is recaps of characters and stories books 1-5 of the series. (not sure he had written book 6 yet when he put this out. They came out the same year)
