Lure of the Dead seemed to be a bit out of place in The Last Apprentice series. It seemed a bit strange to me that The Spook and Tom would both be so naive as to believe what was going on.
Tom is continuing his training as the Spook's apprentice and making progress. With the country once again stable Tom and The Spook are concerned with rebuilding the house. The Spook considers a well stocked library the most important part of his house and is willing to go to extremes to get books for his library once again. This gets both The Spook and Tom in serious trouble. I was just a bit annoyed at how easily both Tom and The Spook missed seeing what was going on until it was too late. It seemed like an beginner mistake.
As The Last Apprentice series gets closer to wrapping up I am more anxious to learn the fate of Tom and Alice.
