The Spook’s Apprentice books in the library

Joseph Delaney is a retired English teacher from Lancashire, England. He has been to Christchurch and today he is in Whangarei. He is here to talk about his work and the latest terrors to be faced by Thomas Ward, the young apprentice at the heart of The Spook’s Apprentice series. He’ll also speak about The Seventh Son, the movie based on his novels, starring Jeff Bridges, Ben Barnes and Julianne Moore. The film directed by Sergei Bodrov is due for release October 2013.”

Last year Joseph Delaney wrote on his blog: “On April 30th (2012) I visited Vancouver, Canada, to watch the film of ‘The Spook’s Apprentice’/ ’The Last Apprentice: Revenge of the Witch’ being made. The film is called ‘The Seventh Son’ and it is a good choice. After all you have to be a seventh son of a seventh son just to be eligible to become a spook’s apprentice.”

” It will differ from the first book somewhat. All films are adaptations and make changes. But I am convinced that it will be a great film. I’m looking forward to it.”
