I don't know about you, but I am a HUGE fan of Joseph Delaney's The Last Apprentice series. So far there are ten books in the series which follows the young Tom Ward, who is a seventh son of a seventh son and thus has special supernatural abilities that require training from the local “spook”. The spook is in charge of battling everything from witches to boggarts to the "Fiend." Tom finds himself in an exciting adventure when he accidentally offends a witch who is eager to take revenge.
I was really psyched to hear that they are making a movie of the first book coming out in 2013 and now titled The Seventh Son! The adaptation already looks promising with stars like Jeff Bridges set to be the Spook and Julianne Moore as the witch. Oddly enough they have cast 30-year-old Ben Barnes (a.k.a Caspian from the Narnia movies) to play the main character Tom (who is 13 in the first novel). The movie will hit theaters October 18, 2013.
