Publisher Comments:

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!

As Thomas and the Spook prepare for the battle of their lives, it becomes clear that the Bane isn't their only enemy. The Quisitor has arrived, searching for those who meddle with the dark so he can imprison them — or worse.

Can Thomas defeat the Bane on his own? Is his friend Alice guilty of witchcraft? And will the Spook be able to escape the Quisitor's clutches?

Review:

"Never a dull moment....The fast pace should appeal to reluctant readers and the gruesome creatures to middle school boys." Children's Literature

Review:

"Arrasmith's occasional woodcut-appearing illustrations complement the tone perfectly." KLIATT

Review:

"While part of a series, the story stands successfully on its own. Occasional eerily atmospheric woodcuts enhance the story's mood." School Library Journal

This is the second book in an very interesting horror/fantasy series. Thomas Ward is an apprentice spook, someone who gets rid of ghosts, witches, and other creepy things that go bump in the night. After he has dealt with a powerful Ripper, the most dangerous kind of boggert, Tom is feeling pretty pleased with himself. However its victim was his master's brother, and when he dies Tom and his master head out to Priestown to his funeral. A horrible and powerful spirit called the Bane has been terrorizing the town and they hope to defeat it.

I recommend that if you want to read this series you start with the first book, Revenge of The Witch. This series is very good. The characters are interesting and the plot is interesting. The author has created a creepy and interesting world.
