Lure of the Dead (The Last Apprentice / Wardstone Chronicles, #10) - Joseph Delaney, Patrick  Arrasmith This series is a favorite of mine but I sort of feel that this book really didn't do much to further the story. The events that occurred could easily have filled the first chapters of the next book. I felt like this was just a placeholder or filler. My son liked it better than I and we both are looking forward to the next book in this series. As we understand it, there will only be a few more before the series is complete and we anticipate some major events in the next book.
