The Lovereading4Kids comment
This is the terrifying seventh title in the Wardstone Chronicles about a young 13 year old boy training to be an exorcist. Ideal for readers who have outgrown Harry Potter, but be prepared the titles are very scary so for anyone brave enough from 10+, rest assured they will be utterly gripped and terrified in equal measure. Thomas Ward is the seventh son of a seventh son and has been apprenticed to the local Spook. The job is hard, the Spook is distant and many apprentices have failed before Thomas. But somehow Thomas learns to cope with the horrors he faces including the exorcising of ghosts, containing witches and binding boggarts but life is never easy or straightforward in a job like this. With the publication of each and every new book there is an avid fan base who feel as passionate about the series as those who first read Harry Potter so why not jump on the band wagon and get reading. You can start here by clicking on the link below and read the whole of the first book The Spook’s Apprentice. We’re pretty sure you’ll get hooked.
To celebrate publication of The Spook’s Nightmare, you can read the first book The Spook’s Apprentice online, for free. Visit www.spooksbooks.com by Friday 25th June to read the first spine-chilling instalment then check back for part two…
A film of the first one The Spook’s Apprentice is currently in development and the author, Joseph Delaney, comments: “I’m thrilled and delighted to hear that the creator of the excellent Enchanted is to direct the film adaptation of my book. It’s brilliant news!”
The Spook's Nightmare (Wardstone Chronicles 7) by Joseph Delaney
The Spook, Tom and Alice return from Greece to find the County under siege - and the Spook's home is burnt to the ground. With his precious library of knowledge destroyed, they seek refuge on the nearby island of Mona. But with Mona in the thrall of a twisted Shaman there is little respite from hostility or denizens of the dark. And as Alice dodges the ever-tightening net of the island's witch hunters, a more deadly enemy emerges...Bony Lizzie, freshly-escaped from the Spook's bonds, has grand ambitions: to take for herself the throne of isle. She has harnessed the services of a tunnel-dwelling buggane, an evil creature which thrives on stealing the animas, or life force, from its unsuspecting victims. With the buggane as her secret weapon can she become an all-powerful Witch Queen?
