The dark is all around. Who will survive?

    Great Book, But Unexpected Storyline

    I just got this book yesterday, and I am already loving it. But, it is not how I thought it would be. Instead of actually being the seventh book in the series, like I expected, it is actually just a short book(about 200 pages), that explains stories of the character's past, like how John Gregory, The Spook, first met Meg Skelton, and how Alice Dean was born into the Pendle Witch Clan. It also has the story of two other witches that were never mentioned in the series. Other then not continuing off where Clash Of The Demons(The sixth book), ended, this book is great. This book is similiar to another short book in the series, The Spook's Tale And Other Horrors, which also came out recently, because it's not really part of the storyline. Also, it is similiar to Rick Riordan's "The Demi-God Files", from the Percy Jackson series,which is also a book filled with 3 short stories, interviews from the characters, etc. But if you were wondering about the actual seventh book in the series, it is called "Rise Of The Huntress", and the first two chapters are in the back of "A Coven Of Witches", this book. This book/series is definetely worth reading, but unfortunately, it is not very well known. If you like fantasy, like me, and you are looking for a good book, go to the store immediately, buy the first book, and start reading!

    Fan of the series? Yes!

    This book was amazing! I just love the way the author writes the series, and also this companion to the last apprentice. The stories feature many characters from the original books and the it includes some great art through out the book.

    Delaney does it again.

    Witches, Spooks, salt, , and silver chains. As always Joseph Delaney manages to weave a fascinating tale that shows the past of the characters I have come to love. Gregory and his error with Meg. Alice and her introduction to the world of Witches, and the preview of the coming book Rise of the Huntress was a surprise and just as enjouyable. Be warned about this story it is graphic in its description of death and gruesome situations, but nothing like a slasher movie or anything that grotesque. Nonetheless the plot moves quickly refusing to be put down and the characters have their charm and all in all it is a great read. Anyone who liked Delaney must get this, and anyone who hasn't heard of him should pick up the first book Revenge of the Witch.
