Goodreads excerpt: “You can’t make alliances with witches and suchlike and hope to avoid being drawn toward the dark.”

As the Spook’s apprentice, Thomas Ward’s first duty is to protect the County from ghosts, boggarts, and other dangerous creatures. But now his mother has come back from her homeland to seek his help. One of the most dangerous of the old witches, Ordeen, is about to return to earth, bringing with her suffering and devastation. Tom’s mother has mustered a powerful army–including Tom’s friend Alice, the Pendle witches, and the assassin Grimalkin–to confront Ordeen. If Tom joins them, the Spook will refuse to take Tom back as his apprentice. What sacrifices will be made in the battle against the dark?


This book was really good. I sat down and read it in like 4 hours straight, I could not put it down. This is the six book in a series of 13 books by Joseph Delaney. I didn’t think it was scary even though there were a lot of scary parts in the book but it did have a ton of action. Tom and The Spook along with Tom’s Mam and a bunch of Pendle witches travel to Greece which is Tom’s Mam’s home. I loved learning about Greece and the creatures that were found there. There was so much action especially toward the end of the book that I was pretty excited to see how it would end. I can’t wait to get the next book in this series although it might be a while before I can get to it. Overall I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes fantasy and horror books.
