Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Spook's: Dark Assassin by Joseph Delaney, read by Gabrielle Glaister, Thomas Judd, Sean Barrett and Olivia Mace. The third chilling instalment in the new Spook's legend . . . An assassin lurks in the darkness between earth and oblivion - but who are they, and what is their mission? The people of the County live in fear of the beasts bent on bringing the war to their home. How can they possibly hope to survive when their fearsome enemies are fortified with the power of a god? Could the creature that moves in the darkness be the saviour the County seeks? Praise for A New Darkness: 'A solid, suspenseful, and spooky adventure' Publishers Weekly Praise for The Dark Army: 'Unbeatable stuff for readers who like to be terrified!'

Grendel prowled in, hating all men and all joy and hungry for human life. So swift was his attack that no man heard an outcry; but when the dawn came, thirty of Hothgar's best and noblest thanes were missing. Only Beowulf, foremost among warriors, has the strength and courage to battle with Grendel the Night-stalker. In this thrilling re-telling of the Anglo-Saxon legend, Rosemary Sutcliff recounts Beowulf's most terrifying quests: against Grendel the man-wolf, against the hideous sea-hag and, most courageous of all - his fight to the death with the monstrous fire-drake.Show more
