9780061960390: The Last Apprentice: A Coven of Witches (Last Apprentice Short Fiction)

Beware a girl in pointy shoes!

A girl wearing pointy shoes might be a witch. And the first thing a spook's apprentice learns is never, ever to trust a witch.

In this bone-chilling collection of tales, you will learn exactly why that is, as you encounter:

  • a fair and beautiful woman with green scales running down her spine . . .
  • a dead witch who lurks under rotting leaves and hunts for blood . . .
  • Alice, Tom Ward's best friend, who once lived with one of the darkest witches of all . . .
  • and a witch whose cry of revenge can kill.

The dark is all around. Who will survive?
