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.
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.
I am well past 14
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
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!
