Beware a girl in pointy shoes!
A girl wearing pointy shoes might be a witch. And the first thing a spook's apprentice learns is never, ever to trust a witch.
In this bone-chilling collection of tales, you will learn exactly why that is, as you encounter:
- a fair and beautiful woman with green scales running down her spine . . .
- a dead witch who lurks under rotting leaves and hunts for blood . . .
- Alice, Tom Ward's best friend, who once lived with one of the darkest witches of all . . .
- and a witch whose cry of revenge can kill.
The dark is all around. Who will survive?
This stand-alone addition to the international phenomenon and bestselling Last Apprentice series features four terrifying stories about witches who inhabit the world of Tom Ward and the Spook. Illustrations.
