The fourth instalment of the Wardstone Chronicles. In Pendle the witches are rising and the three most powerful witch clans are rumoured to be uniting in order to conjure an unimaginable evil. Together they will be capable of raising the dark made flesh - the Devil himself.Tom and the Spook need to set off for Pendle to avert the unthinkable. But before they go, the Spook tells Tom to journey home and collect the trunks Mam left behind for him. But what dark family secrets are contained in the trunks?
And will they place Tom's family in even greater danger or provide the help Tom and his master will need in Pendle?
Once again Tom and the Spook venture into battle. Alice joins them and they journey into the unknown. Alice challenging Tom and the both of them challenging the Spook. This is the fourth adventure and still the story continues to surprise us with new material.
The story is engaging and the narration is superb. Just the right dialect to make it more entertaining
Overall I give this next chapter in the adventures of the Spook and Tom five stars.
The story line, with similar antics as in the previous books is extremely engaging as Tom learns more and more about his future employment, his family and new foes to conquer.
