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.

Joseph Delaney's Wardstone Chronicles are brilliant, they offer chills, action, adventure and horror and are written in a fast paced, engrossing style. This latest installment is no different and right from the very first page you will be transported back into the Spook's world and won't leave until the very final page which will leave you desperate for the next book. Delaney again uses Tom's first person narrative to provide the reader with a thrilling, suspenseful story and the character development, as always, is of a very high quality.
This time around, Tom faces perhaps his most dangerous adversary, a vampire god sent by the still weakened Fiend to kill Tom and wreak horror upon the County. Along the way there are plenty of chills and adventures and a perfect blend of horror, action and enough scary creatures to satisfy fans of the series and of horror. Secrets are revealed, questions answered and new questions posed. This is perhaps not the best of the Wardstone Chronicles, and it seems somewhat rushed and could have benefited from some deeper levels of detail in parts. However, Delaney's prose never becomes boring or repetitve and the pages go past in a blur - he needs to make them longer, the books are over way too quickly.
Overall, this is an awesome and scary tenth installment and is a worthy penultimate story for Tom's side of the narrative. (there will be three more books, one more in Tom's story, another told by a mage: Spook's Tale: Slither, and the 'i am alice' that will be told through Alice's POV). If you're already a fan pick this one up now, if you're new i suggest starting from the very beginning (Spooks Apprentice) as is will offer up a journey you won't regret starting.

This book is well written and is a real page turner as Tom Ward (the Spooks Apprentice) finds out some thing very useful on how to kill his enemy the Fiend, but at what cost. Tom must make a big decision on whether to do it or not. Would recommend this book to anyone!!!!!!!
