Product Description

Review

"Ideal for the reader who has outgrown Harry Potter. Be warned, these books are seriously scary . . . Beautifully produced and consistently surprising, the weird and wonderful Wardstone Chronicles are an annual treat" (The Times)

"The spine-chilling escapades of the Spook and his apprentice continue apace" (Waterstone's Books Quarterly)

"This is terrific writing coupled with such an exciting and frightening storyline of good versus evil that you really will be hanging on to the bedcovers while reading it" (My Child)

Joseph Delaney's ability to deliver big scares and chills alognside a gripping storyline and expertly developed characters is unsurpassed, except by J K Rowling.
The third book in the Wardstone Chronicles sees Tom and the Spook Mr Gregory head to their winter house high in the fells where the dark brings all manner of scary beasts out of the shadows and being the local Spook Mr Gregory does his duty by protecting the inhabitants of the County from the darkness. In this third book we learn more about the Spook himself and his character begins to unfold more than it has in the previous two installments with the introduction of the women he loves, Meg, who happens to be a Lamia witch. But there is other trouble afoot as a rogue Spook is set on releasing an evil God upon the County. This installment is scarier and more disturbing than the previous two and could be too scary for readers under ten.
Delaney draws the reader in from the first page and the action, excitment and thrills don't let up until the very last page, these books are fast becoming my favourite series ever written, behind Harry Potter at the moment. If you enjoy scary and exciting books that are impossible to put down then The Wardstone Chronicles are definitely perfect for you.

Its a rough life being a spook or his apprentice! Again as the first two books in this series its a good read a little 'darker' as more of the Spooks secrets come back to haunt him and as for Tom he could do with doing as he was told to keep him out of trouble. Alice's character is becoming more to the fore is she or isn't she? What do you do with witches?

This is the 3rd in the series and my 3rd journey with Tom and The Spook! I love these books. They were initially recommended by my 14yr old god-daughter, Alice, and I am very happy to recommend them to others. We are near neighbours of the county and these tales of magical landscapes, witches and supernatural are at the same time borrowed from folklore and a new interpretation of Lancashire.
For anyone who would like to find a little magic under the surface of the everyday, a little peril and who would be a force for good.
Ps:
I am well past 14

After reading the Spook's Curse. I couldn't wait to read book 3 Spook's Secret, it was great reading and now looking forward to book 4. Each book that I have read so far has me not wanting to put it down

I'd recommend this to anyone who likes to read about witches and more. They can just let their mind wonder into the books as if they were there

I bought this book for my 7 year old son.
We try hard to keep our sons interest in reading which isn't always easy with the lure of the P.C and T.V and gameboys and so many other distractions but this book managed it.
He would pick it up at every available opportunity, chose to read this over going on the P.C and simply couldn't put it down, not once did we have to ask him to do his nightly reading.
He would highly recommend it.
We would highly recommend it - as we were given 4 days off nagging!

I found this book interesting and action packed. You may expect the book to mainly consist of the spooks dark past beginning to unveil, but it comes back to haunt him and also the spooks young apprentice Tom Ward. We meet Meg, the person which captured the spooks heart and start to find out more about her and her sister who is hidden in the cellar. Alice is back, and her and Tom seem to be getting closer than ever. Along with this, disastrous consequences at home cause Tom to be terrorized by the spooks ex-apprentice Morgan. With action, adventure, romance, horror and suspense what isn't to like?!? This was my favourite spooks book so far and I can't wait to read the next book... the spooks battle!!!

When I was reading this book I could hardly let go of it. The Spooks Secret is a definite read for people who liked the first two books (obviously). At some points it was funny, others sad. Bring on the next book!
