The Wardstone Chronicles is a young adults book series written by Joseph Delaney.

Description

The series is known by many different names: The Spook's Books, The Spook's Series, Spook's, The Spook's Apprentice Series, The Wardstone Chronicles and finally, the US editions, The Last Apprentice due to potentially American racial slang. The first book in the series, The Spook's Apprentice, was released as a movie adaption in 2015: The Seventh Son.

The books take place from the first-person perspective of many different characters; The Spook, Dirty Dora, Grimalkin, Alice Deane and most importantly and prolifically Tom Ward. The story follows the life of Tom Ward during his apprenticeship with the Spook and the adventures and creatures he, the Spook and his love interest, Alice encounter.

The first book in the series, The Spook's Apprentice was published by Bodley Head in 2004, and the last book in the series, The Spook's Revenge, was published in 2013.
