Over the years, Alice has fought evil side by side with the Spook and his apprentice, Thomas Ward. But now Alice is alone – in the realm of the dark. And the creatures she has helped to banish there, now have the chance to take their revenge.

More About the Author

Joseph Delaney is a retired English teacher living in Lancashire. He has three children and seven grandchildren and is a wonderful public speaker available for conference, library and bookshop events. His home is in the middle of Boggart territory and his village has a boggart called the Hall Knocker, which was laid to rest under the step of a house near the church. Most of the places in the Spook's books are based on real places in Lancashire. And the inspiration behind the stories often comes from local ghost stories and legends. The Spook's Apprentice, The Spook's Curse and The Spook's Secret have all been shortlisted for the Lancashire children's Book for the Year Award. The Spook's Apprentice is the winner of both the Sefton Book Award and the Hampshire Book Award.

12th book in series great book but at times the story did seem to not have the spark of the previous books, still was very hard to put down, really enjoyed the read and how the story has developed so far. The ending was very unexpected.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! 19 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Of course, the quality etc. is fine but this review is about the book itself! Obviously, you have to have read the previous 11 books to understand. Joseph Delaney does it again with an amazing, heartstopping novel. It is narrated by Alice herself and tells the story of her journey... I won't give away any more! Also, the ending is perfect.... Spoiler: You have to buy book 13! :) If you haven't started already, start the Wardstone Chronicles and be completely absorbed!

5.0 out of 5 stars ALICE!!! 19 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
What a great book! It describes Alice perfectly and finishes by leaving the reader wanting more with the question "Will Alice hold out against the Dark?" I hope so and await the next book in the series!
