The witches are rising and the three most powerful clans are uniting to conjure an unimaginable evil âeuro;' the Devil himself. If they succeed; will Tom and his master have the courage to defeat the most powerful enemy of all . . . ?

Talkus the Unborn: a new Kobalos God who takes over the Fiend's place as the strongest dark entity after Ward kills the Fiend. As the nights draw in the Spook decides to travel to his winter house. His apprentice; Tom; hates the desolate place. There are feral witches in the cellar; menacing creatures stirring on the nearby moors and a sinister stranger threatening Tom's master. Is the Spook's past catching up with him? And what dangers will Tom face if his master's secrets are revealed? The Ghost Prison - The book occupies the same world as The Wardstone Chronicles, but with different characters and story lines (2013) I really like the Spook’s books and they are my new favorite but I have a few questions regrading witches.Joe worked as an apprentice engineer and fitter before getting his A-Levels at night school and then becoming an English teacher. He would write in the early mornings before school until his first children’s book, The Spook’s Apprentice about Tom Ward the seventh son of a seventh son who trained to fight ghosts and creatures from the Dark, was published by Random House Children’s Books in 2004. He then left teaching and went on to write 12 more titles in his globally bestselling dark fantasy series, The Wardstone Chronicles, plus 17 other titles, predominantly set in the same world. The books have now been translated into thirty languages and won many awards including the Lancashire Book Award. In 2014, The Spook’s Apprentice was made into a movie called The Seventh Son starring Ben Barnes, Julianne Moore and Jeff Bridges.

Spook’s series by Joseph Delaney, is an amazing work of fiction. The reader simply gets smitten by the magical work of this British writer. I started reading the Wardstone Chronicles and couldn’t put it down till I hadn’t finished all the books in the series. When I had finished the Wardstone Chronicles I craved for more, I was sad that they ended. Then one day I was searching for books on an online store that I stumbled across the Starblade Chronicles (this is trilogy, of the further encounters of Tom Ward; the main character) Oh! How happy I was, and this was not the end then came Brother Wulf, I was more than pleased. The plots were very intriguing and complete, and the best parts were the twists. The twists were on another level. They were beyond prediction. I am a slow reader but when the writer was building up for a scary or deadly scene, my speed increased considerably and I’d realise this after the scene ended! I couldn’t find any holes on the plot and wasn’t bored for a second when I was reading. The characters were build quiet efficiently and left an imprint of their appearance on my imagination, so much so that they were nearly alive! In nutshell; it was complete and amazing. The illustrator for the original and UK releases is David Wyatt, providing the original series covers and the illustrations for each chapter.The first book in the series, The Spook's Apprentice was published by Bodley Head in 2004, and the last book in the series, The Spook's Revenge, was published in 2013.
