Tom Ward, the apprentice of the local spook is unhappy as he is forced to spend the winter by the Anglezarke Moor. But as always, strange things are afoot as him and his master try to keep the darkness from spreading. The third book of The Last Apprentice series is the most creepy and terrifying as it gives "life" to the characters of the book, for example, John Gregory's son shows the life John had and regretted alongside his son and other feelings that were exchanged between them. Morgan (John's son) is the villain because of how his father treated him, showing that villains are not born, but created.

Awesome book! Can't wait to finish the series!

IJohn, the title makes perfect sence. Night= one of the nights Tom Ward was with Morgan. Soulstealer = Morgan (he is a necromancer- steals and terrorizes souls) or Golgoth( snuffs out the life and soul.) There :P

The Third book in the ‘Last Apprentice’ series and one of the darkest ones by far, here we are taken on a far longer journey as the plot slows down making it difficult to read at first, but things pick up swiftly. Tom like any curious person pokes his nose into things he should have left be, and chaos ensues, not to mention the larger threat looming on the horizon which is kept hidden for so long. This book truly does itself justice by expanding upon the many characters and showing just what these poor souls are up against in their struggle against the darkness. - @Kuhaica of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Another exciting adventure with Tom Ward! It also reveals interesting back stories of the Spook and Tom's Mam.

It's a very good book, and I recommend it a lot! I enjoyed the book, and it was amazing with twists and turns that keeps you guessing. It's another one of those can't-put-down books!
The title doesn't really make sense though.
