If he's to survive, he'll need training, and only one person can help - Grimalkin, the witch assassin. The dark against the dark . . . The eighth volume in the terrifying Wardstone Chronicles. Read on if you dare . . .

About the Author:

Joseph Delaney used to be an English teacher, before becoming the best-selling author of the Spook's series, which has been published in 24 countries and has sold over a million copies. The first book, The Spook's Apprentice, is now a major motion picture starring Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore.

Review:

"Delaney's mastery of suspense will grip even reluctant readers with his dramatic, beautifully paced prose... Unlike the vampires and so forth, both these novels carry a genuine graveyard chill. Huge fun, and deliciously shivery." * The Times * ". . . ideal for the reader who has outgrown Harry Potter. Be warned, these books are seriously scary . . . Beautifully produced and consistently surprising the weird and wonderful Wardstone Chronicles are an annual treat." -- Amanda Craig * The Times * "Christmas traditions have long included the telling of grisly tales and THE SPOOK'S BESTIARY by Joseph Delaney fits the bill. Adding value and context to the popular series, the illustrations and design of this book are stunning. It is a brooding and eerie collection of stories for reading in one sitting or dipping into." -- Jake Hope * Bookseller 2010 Booksellers' Choice * "Wonderfully dark" * The Bookseller * "Another breathless thriller from the genius of magic and mayhem!" -- Pam Norfolk * Lancashire Evening Post *
