The second terrifying tale in the Spook's spin-off series from bestselling author Joseph Delaney. Thomas Ward was working as the new County Spook, fighting the Dark with his own apprentice. But a new enemy stirred in the north, and Tom's calling required him to leave his home and lead an uprising against a legion of beasts: creatures of the dark intent on locking the whole earth in a never-ending winter. Then something went horribly wrong, and now Tom lies cold in a grave, while those who remain are in despair. Who can now take up the battle? And how much time remains before the dark army brings the fight back to the County, and the world is changed for ever?Show more
Something is terrorizing the villages of the county. People are dying, covered in blood, their faces frozen in fear. But with not a wound on their bodies. Battling creatures of the dark is the job of the local spook, but seventeen-year-old Thomas Ward never finished his apprenticeship. It will be no easy task to earn the trust of the villagers and to defeat a monster that no one has ever seen. Yet Jenny, a seventh daughter of a seventh daughter, knows an awful lot about this new evil. And she's willing to share what she's learned with Tom . . . if he takes her on as his apprentice. No girl has ever been a spook's apprentice before. But vanquishing this creature will take Tom and Jenny far from home. And that's exactly what Jenny wants. This new arc in the legend of Thomas Ward, the hero of the best-selling The Last Apprentice series, begins a dark and sweeping adventure that will chill your very soul.Show more
