The Last Apprentice Series

Book One: Revenge of the Witch

As the local Spook, Mr. Gregory keeps the County clear of witches, boggarts and ghosts. But he can't do it alone. Mr. Gregory needs an apprentice, but apprentices have an unfortunate habit of running away or dying. Only Thomas Ward is left. He's the last hope; the last apprentice.



Book Two: Curse of the Bane

Thomas Ward survived his first encounter with darkness as an apprentice to Mr. Gregory, the local Spook. But now Thomas and his mentor must take on a terrible force that Mr. Gregory has never been able to defeat: The Bane!



Book Three: Night of the Soul Stealer

Stranded at the Spook's winter home in Anglezarke, apprentice Thomas War will have to face a pair of witches, an evil sage, and a dangerous fabled created called the Golgoth... and he will have to do it alone.




Book Four: Attack of the Fiend

The County witch covens have pooled their strength to raise a creature of unimaginable evil and bring darkness to the world. To stop them, Tom will have to explore his mother's past and learn the truth about her connection to the dark.



Book Five: Wrath of the Bloodeye

With the Fiend loose in the County, Mr. Gregory sends Tom to apprentice under Bill Arkwright, the Spook in the Lake District. When Tom encounters his new master's longtime foe, the water witch Greenteeth, spook and apprentice undertake a journey to vanquish her once and for all.




Book Six: Clash of the Demons

Tom is reunited with his Mam and must return to Greece to face a new and horrible threat from the dark. As if that weren't terrifying enough, a momentous decision must be made, causing a serious rift between the Spook and his apprentice, one that threatens to separate them forever.



The Spook's Tale and Other Horrors

The Last Apprentice series follows the terrifying adventures of the Spook's apprentice, Thomas Ward. But Tom's is only one story. The Spook himself was once an apprentice. How did he begin his training? And what of Alice, the young witch who is Tom's closest ally? How did she overcome her dark past? Enter a land where creatures of the dark creep out of the shadows. Do you dare?

Alrighty XD You're welcome :P (Yeah, it  is  too bad you can't eat it.)

since i was young since i was small, stupid, clueless. in a daze in a faze that the world was a beautiful kind place. convinced life was a big and precious thing. i was sought after by pigs. no not the animals. although the male species can act like animals. they can be ferocious, sex###########d cold-hearted. They can go after you as if you were prey. hunt you down. and kill you. but instead of taking your life. it's your innocence. your right to feel important in life. they make the word "beautiful", sound so fake the way it slides off their lips and into my mouth convincing me it must be ok if i let my guard down i don't enjoy being talked to because you like the way i look i like the way that butterfly looks but i'm not going to catch it and rip it's wings off. you like my face you like my body but you don't like ME enough to stay and treat me like i'm worth something. exscuse me. while i walk away from your filthy hands. but don't touch me. one more crack in my porceline skin. and i'm done. go break someone elses body.

When I try to come up with ideas, I tend to take a cliche and change elements about it so that it takes on a sort of originality. So, for example, let's say we're taking the cliche of a band of friends (or strangers) hunting a dragon. Instead of their motive being that the dragon is, say, eating innocent villagers or holding a princess captive, that it's a more personal issue. Maybe the dragon is a smaller type with a more mischievous demeanor, and is stealing the characters' valuables as a prank, and the characters want their things back. They might be innocent villagers themselves, unskilled with any sort of tracking or fighting techniques, and hire a sort of mercenary to help them out. But if you wanted a plotless sort of thing with a lot of flexibility, you could have the characters be a band of mercenaries who get hired by people to do various jobs. And if you can find more things to swap out in any idea you come up with, you'll eventually find yourself being in a sort of popcorn machine of ideas. Hopefully, this post has been helpful.
