The Lovereading4Kids comment

This finale in the Witchfinder series is eagerly awaited and the series itself has been universally acknowledged by both authors and reviewers as something special. The fear unleashed by the author throughout the trilogy is breathtaking but not to be missed. The Age of Man is over. Vampires stalk the streets. Dark creatures wait to be unleashed. The Demontide is here. The Last Nightfall is the final, thrilling instalment of the Witchfinder trilogy.

Synopsis

Witchfinder 3: The Last Nightfall by William Hussey

With a sickening jolt, Jake realized that everything before this had been just a prelude to terror. Now he could see and hear the darkness of demonkind. Now he had reached the Shore of Damnation. Now he had truly entered Hell ...The Demon Father has taken control of the United Kingdom. He is on a mission to open the door to the demon realm, destroying all of humankind. Jake would go to hell and back to stop him ...but will that be enough?

Reviews

Praise for Witchfinder: Dawn of Demontide:

'A series to savour. William Hussey [has] a master's eye for the minutiae of fear: the quickened pulse, the hairs bristle, and the way, in moments of purest terror, that time seems to slow to a stop' - Sam Enthoven, author of Crawlers and The Black Tattoo

'William Hussey's Witchfinder trilogy is ... a full-throated horror tale that doesn't shrink from confronting mortality head on ... This ever-present shadow of death brings a quickening sense of terror. ****' SFX

Praise for Witchfinder: Gallows at Twilight:

'I felt at home in this scary world; I wish I'd written the book myself!' Joseph Delaney, author of The Spooks books

About the Author

William Hussey

Contrary to popular myth, William Hussey was born on Planet Earth – more precisely in the London Borough of Hounslow. He spent the first year of his life roaming around the country with a travelling fairground, though his memories of this time are vague. The Hussey family has been touring with fairgrounds and circuses for centuries and, in the 1800s, William’s great-grandfather had the honour of meeting the legendary Elephant Man !

When William was one, his family settled in the seaside town of Skegness. They again found work with the local fairground and William spent his early years helping his uncle who owned the town’s scariest ghost train.

From the age of eight, William lived in a house his dad had built next to an old churchyard. For the next eight years the family was disturbed by a ghostly presence – a little old lady in black, her face criss-crossed with deep lines, who used to walk the corridors at night ! William saw her on only two occasions but he often heard her footsteps passing his window. He hears them still… in his dreams…

During the summer holidays, while William’s parents worked fifteen-hour days, he was entrusted to the care of his grandfathers. They would take him on long walks through the countryside and would make up stories to order: tales full of werewolves, vampires and ghouls ! His grandfathers also gave him his love of books – especially tales of mystery and imagination, like the Sherlock Holmes stories.

After studying English, Psychology and Law at college and university, William became a lawyer, but found the world of judges and barristers far too boring. He wrote a couple of books for grown-ups before being inspired by his little nephew Johnny to write one for kids. He had so much fun writing this book – Witchfinder – that he wants to write many, many more !
