Book Description

6 Jun 2013 Wardstone Chronicles

A lot of dark stuff happened when I was young that I've never even told to my dearest friend, Tom Ward. Dark and scary things I hoped I had left behind for ever . . .

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.

Alice must seek the final weapon needed to destroy the Fiend for good. If she fails, the world will fall into despair and darkness. If she succeeds, it means facing her own death at the hands of her dearest friend. But can she prevent the darkness from overtaking her over completely . . . ?

The penultimate instalment of the Wardstone Chronicles follows Alice, Thomas Ward's loyal companion, to the most terrifying place of all.

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 Good book 21 Aug 2014

Don't like what happens in the next book when she falls in love with an evil mage :(
I also dislike how the fiend is destroyed, it was highly anticlimactic the only twist being the death of the spook in the final battle and lukastra being alive with God like power's (the evil mage Alice falls in love with)

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!
