the last apprentice series in order

The Last Apprentice books in order

We hope you are ready for some dark fantasy because we have prepared a list with The Last Apprentice series in order. These books are written by British author Joseph Delaney and they are also known as Spook’s since that is the original name of the series.

You may also know this series as The Wardstone Chronicles, because it’s the title of the first arch. Yes, it has a lot of names. Also, did you know that the movie Seventh Son was inspired by this series? yes, we’ll tell you a bit about this at the end of this post.

The Last Apprentice series in order by Joseph Delaney

This story is quite long, and not only is composed of several books but there is also more than one arc. We recommend you read The Last Apprentice series in order of publication. So, you should start with the original series, known as The Wardstone Chronicles, a total of 13 novels (yes, it is concluded):

Once you have finished them you can read its sequel, The Starblade Chronicles, a trilogy in which we see Tom Ward as a Spook, fighting every threat to the County.

If you want to start this series then you can get this The Last Apprentice book set that collects the first 3 volumes in the series:

We have been asked many times if this series is scary or not, and the truth is it is hard to tell, because while some readers consider some of the events kind of spooky, others believe that it is just scary if you are a young kid. So it may be worth mentioning that the Last Apprentice books are addressed to teenagers over 12 years old.

Now that you know the order of the Last Apprentice series don’t miss these books

As you can see, you have lots of books to deal with in this series, so it may take you a while to finish all the Last Apprentice books. However, that day will come before you ever expected, and to fill that need of new adventures here you have some similar series:

No products found.

If the spooky aspect of these books by Joseph Delaney is what captivated you to read The Last apprentice then you might enjoy the Lockwood & Co series should be your next read for sure. This series is written by Jonathan Stroud, known for the NY Times bestselling Bartimaeus books.

On the other side, The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan is a great alternative if what you enjoy is high fantasy and adventure.

What are these books about?

The Last Apprentice books tell the story of Thomas the boy who happens to be the last hope for the county to become the Spook, a human that fights the dark, has a wide knowledge of the evil creatures, and also happens to be the Seventh Son of a Seventh Son.

Their mission is to protect the county from paranormal evil creatures and so far none of the apprentices have succeeded to become a Spook. Only Thomas Ward is left, will he be able to learn how to defeat the dark side?

The seventh son of a seventh son thing was actually a concept from folklore which you may have heard before in other stories. In fact, it might be kinda familiar and maybe confusing to you if you have read the Discworld series. Because in these novels author Terry Pratchett talks about eighth sons of eighth sons usually becoming wizards (since number 8 is a powerful magical number in this fictional fantasy universe).

A list with the Last Apprentice series in order

The Unwanteds all books in order

We’ve prepared a list with the Unwanted series in order, a story written by author Lisa McAnn in which turning 13 years old is a very special day.  Because at that age children are sorted into two categories, and no, this is not Hogwarts and we are not sorting kids into four houses, instead, strong and Smart children Will become Wanted and sent to the university where they will develop all their skills and potentials. While the rest, categorized as Unwanted, Will be sent to death instead.

This year however Will be the most peculiar, because it’s the year for twins Alex and Aaron to be sorted. And it Will turn out that only one of them Will be announced as Wanted, does this mean that one of them Will die? You’ll have to read all the Unwanted books in order to discover it.

A list with the Unwanted book series in order by Lisca McAnn

The one and the only way to read The Unwanted series is in order of publication, this middle-grade dystopian fantasy story was published narrating the events chronologically, so it’s very easy to follow. Here you have all the books in the series, you can get them by clicking on their cover, it’s time to meet Alex and Aaron, aren’t you excited?

There is a total of 7 volumes, and if you want to get all the books, then you can buy this Unwanted set that collects them all. You can choose between paperback, hardcover, and there’s even the option to download them all to your Kindle, you can choose your own adventure.

Now that you finally know in what order to read The Unwanted book series don’t miss these novels

We’ve got lots of great recommendations for you so you can add them to your tbr list and start them once you have finished these amazing books by Lisa McAnn. Here are our 3 recommendations:

If want more of this series then you can start with their sequel, The Unwanted Quest, which takes place 10 years after the original books and have Alex and Aaron’s twin younger sisters as the main characters. So, while both stories are set in the same universe and they are obviously connected you can read each of them as a standalone.

In addition, here you have a list with the Spirit Animal books in order, a series created by author Brandon Mull that tells the story of four children that have a special connection with animals.

What are these books about?

In The Unwanted series, kids are segregated into Wanteds, Necessaries, and Unwanted at the age of twelve. The member of the first group is supposed to be the most capable, thus sent to the university so they can learn the military. Necessaries are in charge of minor tasks while Unwanted are supposed to be disposed of.

However, such a supposition is a common misconception, because not only the Unwanteds are in fact alive, but they are secretly taught magical abilities (a Hogwarts of some sort).

The story focuses on twins Alex (a Wanted) and Aaron (an Unwanted), when the first one finds out his brother is alive all this magical society Will be revealed, his members being exposed and leading to some conflict (don’t want to say much so we don’t ruin the story to you).

This middle grade story has a positive message to young readers, it is fairly easy to so it’s a great ally for readers that don’t fancy reading that much.

A list with the Unwanted series in order by Lisa McAnn

You will be more than happy to know that you can read The Unwanted books from beginning to end because this series is concluded. However, this does not mean fun gets to an end because you can read The Unwanteds Quests as well.

Here’s a list with all the Unwanted books in order of publication, which is how we recommend you read this series written by author Lisa McAnn.

The Unwanteds series order

The Unwanteds – Lisa McMann


  • Aladdin


  • The Unwanteds (The Unwanteds book 1)

The Lux book series reading order

We hope you are ready for a ya romance paranormal story because here you will find a list with the Lux series in order. A love story between Katy, a human who enjoys blogging and reading,  and Daemon, an arrogant boy who has a big secret.

Here not only you will find out what is the best order to read these books by Jennifer L. Armentrout but we also have some great book suggestions that we hope you’ll find enticing.

What is the best reading order of the Lux series?

It’s easy to tell you, because author Jennifer L. Armentrout answers this question on her website. You should read the Lux series in chronological order, which means that you should start with the prequel novella, Shadows, here you have all the Lux books:

The last book that we mentioned is actually a spinoff, centering on Luc. This means that the story between Katy and Daemon is concluded in the sixth novel of the series.

Now that we told you the reading order of the Lux series here are some recommendations

We think there are never enough books on a tbr list, don’t you agree? Here you have 3 book suggestions that you can start once you finish the Lux novels:

Our first recommendation is the first volume of the Covenant series, which not only is also written by Jennifer L. Armentrout, but it also happens to be the first novel she has published, so if you want to delve into her work this is a great start for sure.

As an alternative, here you have the Fever reading order, a guide in which we tell you how to read this series by Karen Marie, in which you’ll also embark on a paranormal story that will take you to the shadow realm.

Serpent & Dove has also an interesting take, and fans of the Lux series will definitely enjoy this one, because it’s about a witch and a witch hunter that have to get married (a marriage of convenience).

What are these books about?

This is a romance story between Katy, a human, and Daemon, whose name might be kinda misleading because he’s not either a demon or a Daemon (the animal companions that make their appearance in the Narnia books), but he’s a different creature, one that we will not tell you so not to ruin the surprise.

Katy is in love with her neighbor Daemon, he is sexy, arrogant, and kinda mean, which makes her like him even more for a reason she can’t actually explain.

But once she gets to meet him she will find out that he has a tender side, and also, that he has a secret: a full list of enemies that are chasing him and her sister.

If you follow this author’s career you may have noticed that she is quite a prolific author, having written 69 books so far (included the ones that she has written under the pseudonym of J. Lynn, of course). More than impressive considering that author Jennifer L. Armentrout is only 41 years old, and that her first novel was published in 2011. Which equals to an average of 7 books published per year, not bad uh? As imposing as these numbers may sound, these are far from the author who holds the World Guinness record of the most published books, an honor in possession of author L. Ron Hubbard (who published a total of 1,075 books!)

A list with the reading order of the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout

As we told you the series is concluded, however, since we already have a spinoff, it is likely that there may be more in the future (not that there’s any confirmation though). Here is our list with the Lux reading order:

Lux reading order

Lux – Jennifer L. Armentrout


  • Entangled


  • Shadows (Lux book 1)
  • Obsidian (Lux book 2)
  • Onyx (Lux book 3)
  • Opal (Lux book 4)
  • Origin (Lux book 5)
  • Opposition (Lux book 6)

This series is classified as Young adult, despite that take note that there’s some mature content so it is not advisable that teens under 14 years old read the Lux novels.

Do you happen to like fantasy books? If that is the case, then don’t miss the An Ember in the Ashes series, which is considered one of the best 100 fantasy books of all time.
