only downfall is that it is not available in the old style book covers :/
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.
