Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now it's the dark's turn to be afraid.

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:

"Despite the blood and gore, this tale is more than a well-crafted horror story. Delaney infuses his characters with depth and emotion, but equally important, he grows his world by contributing significantly to the back story." Booklist

Review:

"Dark, woodcut style art at the chapter heads, and an appended section of reproduced pages from Tom's notes on various bogles met here and previously, reinforce the gloomy atmosphere of his narrative. Readers will be hooked from the first line." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Delaney's writing should particularly engage younger YA readers, and Patrick Arrasmith's occasional woodcut-appearing illustrations complement the tone perfectly." KLIATT

Review:

"As in the first installment, there is quite a bit to keep the reader's interest....Unfortunately, as in the first book, Tom is a lackluster first-person narrator." VOYA

Synopsis:

The Spook has never been able to defeat the Bane, a force so evil that the whole county is in danger of being corrupted by its powers. Will the Spook be able to escape the Quisitor's clutches? Can Thomas defeat the Bane on his own? Is his friend Alice guilty of witchcraft?
