Found out this book is being made into a movie so I decided to give it a try. I needed something quick and light to read in between the Game of Thrones books (which are still amazing btw) and found it with The Last Apprentice. It's a young adult novel but quite a good read. I wouldn't compare it to Harry Potter because nothing can be compared to those books but it's the same age group I believe. There are quite a few books in the series too.
It's about a 13 year old boy, the seventh son of a seventh son, who is taken on as an apprentice to a spook (you could say he's in the same career field as the Winchester brothers). If you're looking for a fun quick and easy paranormal read I would recommend this series.
