Publisher's Summary

It's going to be a long, hard, cruel winter. And there couldn't be a worse place to spend it than up on Anglezarke.

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.

Can anything prepare Tom for what he finds there? What if the rumors about the evil beast called the Golgoth are true? And how much danger will Tom be in if the secrets the Spook has been trying to hide from the world are revealed?

Left Me Wanting More

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.

Written for kids, but great for adults!

I absolutely love this series! I don't have kids, and I'm in my late 30's, yet I find this very entertaining and addictive. Even for adults it is gripping and frightening at times. I think it might even be a bit much for some kids, though I know I would have loved it when I was young. Definitely a good read for all ages if you like tales of the supernatural.

Can't wait for the next book to come out!

Steven King for young adults

Joseph Delaney's work so far is getting better and better with each book. His stories are well written and the plot will keep you guessing till the end. The idea of having the story told by his young apprentice makes for an interesting view point. i.e. he makes mistakes and must find his own way out. Recommend also Garth Nix, and Jasper Fforde.

Holds my Curiosity

I am not sure if it is the narration but I am drawn to the story. I want to know more. I like the characters even though none are particularly interesting. It kind of reminds me of Harry Potter and the dementors. The world has a darkness to it and some.ofnthe creaturs do too. They have a sadness to them as well. There is an innocence in the Apprentice which is very Harry Potter like. The Spook is a mix; Professor Snape like, a little dark and curmudgeon, yet, kinda like Dumbledore, where he serves as a semi vauge mentor. The world is not as interesting or as imaginative. I want to know more. What will happen to the Spook and to the Apprentice.

Dull story excitedly narrated

An impudent apprentice tells a dreary tale set in a 1700s British like world beset with witches and Spooks and similar. The characters speak with modern American-English expressions and thought forms.
The narrator was too much for me. He seemed constantly overexcited. The protagonist did seem nearly always distressed and was fairly begging for sympathy and empathy from the listener. The emotionality was too incongruous for the banal story.

super duper

Not my favorite of the books but it leaves you wanting to hear more. The attention to detail makes me feel like I'm actually there.
