Book-A-Like: Seventh Son

Percy Jackson. Son of a god. Monster slayer extraordinaire.

If you relish reading the adventures of teenage butt-kicking heroes -say hello to Thomas Ward!

Processed with MoldivThe seventh son of a seventh son, Thomas is special. Special enough to be a Spook.

While he is hesitant about becoming a Spook, Thomas doesn't have much choice. All of his brothers have moved away to study apprenticeships and he cannot live at the family farm forever. Plus his mam really has her heart set on it- and no-one likes to disappoint their mother. But you do need to fight monsters.

If it terrifies everyone else, the Spook has to handle it. And Thomas is not sure he wants to...

Bundled off to study under the mysterious Mr Gregory, Thomas embarks on the biggest adventure of his young life. Learning to trap boggarts is just the beginning. Learning new languages, digging pits, collecting supplies- it's all part of Mr Gregory's plan to get Thomas ready.

There's also witches to contend with. Only Alice is a witch and he is not sure that Alice is evil...

Featuring the storyline from the first two novels, Joseph Delaney's dark fantasy series The Last Apprentice is coming to theatres on March 5.
