Description

'I stood there, terrified. My master was about to die.' The County is facing dark days. But, for the Spook, it is the nights that are darkest. Having always stood against evil, he is now haunted by vivid, terrifying dreams. Dreams that seem to be more like premonitions ...With his precious library burned to the ground and his arch rival, Bony Lizzie, free again, things are falling apart. As nightmares turn real, are the Spook's powers waning - just when he needs them the most? Can Tom, the Spook's apprentice, face the dark alone? The seventh chilling installment in the Wardstone Chronicles, the series that inspired the forthcoming movie The Seventh Son, starring Jeff Bridges, Ben Barnes and Julianne Moore.

About Joseph Delaney

Joseph Delaney is a retired English teacher living in Lancashire. He has three children and seven grandchildren and is a wonderful public speaker available for conference, library and bookshop events. His home is in the middle of Boggart territory and his village has a boggart called the Hall Knocker, which was laid to rest under the step of a house near the church. Most of the places in the Spook's books are based on real places in Lancashire. And the inspiration behind the stories often comes from local ghost stories and legends.
