A beautiful collector's edition of the latest terrifying installment in Joseph Delaney's worldwide hit Spook's series.
From the Inside Flap
'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 that I hoped I had left behind for ever . . .'
Over the years, Alice has fought 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 to destroy the Fiend. If she fails, the world will fall into despair and darkness. If she suceeds, it means facing her death at the hands of her dearest friend. But can she prevent the darkness from overtaking her completely . . . ?
The penultimate instalment of the Wardstone Chronicles follows Alice, Thomas Ward's loyal companion, to the most terrifying place of all.

It gives you a good background, and more depth to many of his characters. It also slots a few pieces of the jigsaw together. A nice read, and certainly NOT TO BE READ AFTER DARK!!!!
Joseph Delaney delivers here five very original and entertaining tales that all relate to the dark he faces everyday and the theme of these stories is witches. Each of the stories are eerie, spooky and scary and, in the case of the story Alice and the brain guzzler, gruesome. Each of the different tales has a different person narrating them, the first is the Spook himself when he was younger, telling the tale of how he met Meg the lamia witch and fell in love, the second is narrated by a dead witch who tells us in gory detail about her life as a dead witch and how she came to be one, the third story is narrated by Grimalkin and is the story of how she came to be so angry with the fiend, the fourth is narrated by Alice as she tells us of her life with her Aunt Bony lizzie (or if you've read Spooks Nightmare you'll know she isn't really her aunt), the fifth story is narrated by Tom Ward as he describes his time training with Bill Arkwright.
Overall this is a very well written addition to the Wardstone Chronicles and provides fans with extra details and insights into the spooks world, it is also a perfect introductory book for anyobdy who has not yet started the wardstone chronicles.
