'Witches, Mam? We've made an alliance with witches?' As the Spook's apprentice, Tom's first duty is to protect the County from the dark. But now Mam needs his help in her homeland of Greece to rise up against one of the Old Gods, the Ordeen. Mam has summoned a powerful group to fight, but among them are the Pendle witches. Can Tom go against all the Spook has taught him and ally himself with the enemy? What is the secret that Mam is keeping from Tom? And what sacrifices must be made in the battle against the dark? The sixth chilling tale in the Wardstone Chronicles, the series that inspired the forthcoming movie The Seventh Son, starring Jeff Bridges, Ben Barnes and Julianne Moore.

Author Information

Joseph Delaney is a retired English teacher. He has three children and nine 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.

story well-told

J. Delaney did not disappoint. Absorbing world, this book is. Plus this time, a bit of an adventure was added into the mix. It probably helped that England (Tom and Spook's country) is on the same continent as Greece (Mam's country). I like this new twist in the series. Adventure plus a deviation from Tom's usual Spook's apprentice thingie. Keeps the series from being monotonous. Will continue to look forward to reading more of the Spook's series. Overall rating = 4 out of 5 Hey they made a new website for J.
