Professional reviews

"Christopher Evan Welch skillfully presents the descriptive backgrounds of John Gregory and Alice Dean, characters who are nearly as important as Tom Ward in the Last Apprentice series. Along with accurately delivering John's appealing accent, Welch quickly changes his tone as terror erupts when John is locked in a dark cellar by his angry father. Equally frightening is WelchÕs portrayal of a witch with a shaky, old lady voice. Most appealing is his portrayal of Alice, who poignantly explains how her feelings for Tom are at odds with her dark side as a witch. These fast-paced "short listens" round out this exciting series.
