The Lovereading4Kids comment
Horror stalks this scary second adventure for Jake who must now lead the war against the Demon Father, newly escaped from hell. Jake’s previous success in closing the demon door shows his prowess but has he the courage to go back into the past and change the course of history? Jake is a great hero and his world is a grimly ghastly one.
This is the sequel to Witchfinder: Dawn of the Demontide.
A 'piece of passion' from the editor of the Witchfinder series
The Witchfinder series was my first acquisition for the Oxford University Press children's list and from the first page I was hooked. I knew that I had to be the one to bring this book to the world. I urge you to read both the first one and this one and find out for yourselves. With its mix of magic and science, horror and beautiful writing, it is quite unlike anything I’ve ever read and I envy you your first foray into the world of Witchfinder...
Gallows at Twilight (Witchfinder series) by William Hussey
Eight pale hands - some with fingers stripped down to the bone - rose
out of the earth. Slimy with rain, the rat-gnawed heads of four soldiers
loomed into view. They moaned at the sky and their cry moulded itself
into a word: 'FLLLLLLEEESSSSSSSSHHHHH!' The Demon Father has escaped
from hell and walks among us, his trident symbol branded into the earth
in countries all over the world.
Jake is struggling to harness his powers and live up to his reputation of the boy who closed the demon door. But now he must push all doubt aside. To stop the Demon Father Jake must change the course of history - embark on a treacherous journey deep into the past and into another dimension, filled with horror and pain.
A place where innocent people are tried and tortured. A place where the law of the Witchfinder rules. Let the rushes be lit for there will be gallows at twilight.
'Full throated horror .. a rattling good adventure. 4 stars' - SFX
