The dark army is the second book in the continuation of my favorite series the last apprentice which then turned into the star-blade chronicles

The situation seems hopeless until Alice—Tom’s lost love and a powerful witch—appears. But Alice had turned to the dark: can Tom trust her now? Joseph Delaney’s deliciously scary imagination continues Tom’s saga, introducing new readers to the struggle against the encroaching dark and taking longtime fans back to familiar settings, where they will find old friends—and old enemies.
Thomas ward is the main character he is a seventh son of a seventh son As the seventh son of a seventh son Tom has gifts such as being able to see and interact with Ghosts and Ghasts, and being hidden from the long-sniffing of witches.
the authors writing style is interesting i like that he goes into detail when talking about a new creature but i dislike that he sometimes never brings back those same creatures
