Revenge of the Witch - Joseph Delaney;  Read By Christopher Welch

In my quest to find an audio series for my son and I to listen to in the car, I came across The Last Apprentice/Wardstone Chronicles series. This first book, Revenge of the Witch, is about a 13 year old boy who is starting his apprenticeship to be a "Spook" which is someone who fights evil such as witches and boggarts etc. The back of the audio CD says its for middle grade, 10 and up, but it was pretty scary and gory! The narrator, Christopher Evan Welch, is really good and he does the perfect witches voice and cackle but it is way too creepy for younger kids! I ended up taking the CD out because it was too much for my 9 year old. I did end up listening to it by myself though and even started the second audio book because I liked this one so much. It just seems to be more appropriate for high school students or young adults then middle grade. So even though I found an audio series for me to listen too :  )  I'm still on the hunt for something for kids...
