I read this three or four years ago in the sixth grade and I thought that it was really good. one of the first books I ever picked up and enjoyed. I can't remember if I read the first one because back then, I wasn't as smart to check if it were part of a series but I think I did. I want to read the others and see what happens. I remember this book as a page turner and one with a different story line than I was and am used to so I really liked it.

Young Tom Ward and his master, the Spook(old Gregory), have had a turn of bad luck that's been years in the making. While the Spook is sick, Tom goes down to a small village where one of the Spook's brothers is a priest. The brother has tried to stop a Boggart, a malicious beast capable of murder. After a breath-taking opening, Tom wins and loses. The Boggart is bound, but the Spook's brother eventually dies. While attending the funeral in Priestown, the Spook runs into the Quisitor, a man dedicated to burning witches and punishing those who get too close to the Dark. The Spook is high on the Quisitor's list. Furthermore, the Bane--one of the strongest and most evil of the denizens of the Dark--still lies buried in the catacoombs beneath the town. It's held prisoner by an ancient curse, but it's growing stronger. The Spook tried to rid the town of it once and failed, nearly losing his life. When the Spook is taken prisoner, only Tom is left to save the day. To do that, he has to risk everything, learn more about his moaster and his mother than he'd ever wanted to, and find a strenth inside himself that he didn't know he had.

I had to read this book for school including the first book. By the look of the cover i thought it was really gay but qhen i started to get into the books i found it was very interesting and full of suspense and creepy. Im 14 and i was scared to take out the trash at 930 at night cuz i thought that a witch or boggart or the bane might get me haha thats how good i hink it is

I have read the first book and loved it. This is just the same. The Curse of the Bane has awesome characters like the Bane and has twists and turns throughout the story. 20 out of 10

Might be a little creepy for some kids. He is a bit to descriptive on the dead and tortured. My youngest son would be fine. However my other son doesn't like that kind of stuff. Its not a vampire/werewolf book. Its different and unique. Its not goose bumps but its an interesting creepy book. I loved it.

This was a fantastic book a true work of art! It was a wonderful sequl to the fist book and was just as intriguing. I loved to hear more abouit alice she is my favorite character! I hear that the next to books are out or atleast one of them is but they are called the wardstone chronicles and the next one is the Spooks Secret and has something to to do with The lamia with meg mentioned in this one the one after that one has something to do with a water witch, these books are soo good I encourage anyone to read them and I can't wait for them to come out here!!!

I just love the Last Apprentice series. I can't even read another book when I finish with a Last Apprentice book. So to say the least I am hooked :D Looks as though I will be buying a new book once a week :D
