    Thomas Ward is the apprentice for the local Spook, who captures witches and drives away ghosts. As the weather gets colder and the nights draw in, the Spook receives an unexpected visitor. Tom doesn't know who the stranger is or what he wants, but the Spook suddenly decides it's time to travel to his winter house, Anglezarke. Tom has heard it will be a bleak, forbidding place, and that menacing creatures are starting to stir somewhere on the moors nearby.

    Overall

    This is the third book in this series and the last book currently available on Audible (perhaps the last book currently written). I really enjoyed this series and can't wait for more.

    I've found user reviews to be very important when trying to decide whether I should purchase an audio book or not, so I've felt compelled to leave my comments and recommendations for this series. They are great stories (even though they are actually young adult books) and are read by an excellent reader who seriously enhances the audio book experience with his narrative skills.

    The Spook and his apprentice, Thomas Ward, deal with the dark. Together they rid the county of witches, ghosts, and boggarts. But now there's some unfinished business to attend to in Priestown. Deep in the catacombs of the cathedral lurks a creature the Spook has never been able to defeat, a force so evil that the whole county is in danger of being corrupted by its powers. The Bane!

    This is the second book in this young adult series and it is definitely as good as the first. I am an adult and perhaps shouldn't be admitting to enjoying this series, but I do! The stories are excellent character-driven sotries and the narration is outstanding. I highly recommend this series.

    Only Thomas Ward is left. He's the last hope; the last apprentice. Can Thomas succeed? Will he learn the difference between a benign witch and a malevolent one? Does the Spook's warning against girls with pointy shoes include Alice? And what will happen if Thomas accidentally frees Mother Malkin, the most evil witch in the county?

    Overall

    I have to enter reviews on some of the books I've enjoyed from Audiobooks because I have found that browsing the reviews can really save me from a bad experience. This book was excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed it. And you should know that it is actually a young adult book.

    The author doesn't waste time trying to build his own fantasy world for this series. The stories take place in 'the county' on what we must presume to be our world, but there is no definite sense of any particular time in history or even place. This series is all about the characters and their interactions.

    It's an excellent series!
