Something is terrorizing the villages of the county. People are dying - covered in blood, their faces frozen in fear. But with not a wound on their bodies. Battling creatures of the dark is the job of the local spook, but 17-year-old Thomas Ward never finished his apprenticeship. It will be no easy task to earn the trust of the villagers and to defeat a monster that no one has ever seen. Yet Jenny - a seventh daughter of a seventh daughter - knows an awful lot about this new evil. And she's willing to share what she's learned with Tom…if he takes her on as his apprentice.
The second terrifying tale in the Spook's spin-off series from best-selling author Joseph Delaney. Thomas Ward was working as the new County Spook, fighting the Dark with his own apprentice. But a new enemy stirred in the north, and Tom's calling required him to leave his home and lead an uprising against a legion of beasts: creatures of the Dark intent on locking the whole Earth in a never-ending winter.
After tragically losing his wife and daughter in a car accident, writer-photographer Richard Lowrey loses his will to do what he does best and becomes a recluse at his house on the famed 17-Mile Drive on California's Monterey Peninsula. Single mother Janine Henderson, an editor at Richard's New York City publisher, is assigned the task of bringing him back into the fold, with two books left in his contract. The two begin to connect beyond their professional association and personal misfortunes as they seek to find true love again.
Tom Ward is the Spook, the one person who can defend the county from bloodthirsty creatures of the dark. But he's only 17, and his apprenticeship was cut short when his master died in battle. No one trusts Tom's skill, not till he's proven himself. And a 15-year-old girl named Jenny knows more about the three mysterious deaths in the county than Tom does. She is a seventh daughter of a seventh daughter, and she wants to be Tom's first apprentice – even though a female Spook is unheard of.
