Professional reviews

"Warning: This is not a tale for the squeamish. The seventh son of a seventh son, Tom Ward is sent off to apprentice himself to "the Spook," who has for years taken care of the evils in the county--boggarts, witches, and ghosts. Evan Welch gives a gripping and compelling rendering of each role--from the arrogant Old Gregory to the confused and sometimes not too swift apprentice. Welch superbly builds the tension as listeners realize Tom has brought the devil to his own doorstep. An enhanced CD allows listeners to see Tom Ward's "Secrets for Survival," identify boggarts, and get recipes for dealing with witches. D.G. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
