"I've already drunk my fill of blood, so live a little longer. Breathe for a while and watch what's about to unfold." Thomas Ward has spent two years as the Spook's apprentice. He's faced unimaginable peril, and survived. But a new danger has emerged: an ancient water witch, Bloodeye, is roaming the County intent on destroying everything in her path. To strengthen his skills, Tom is sent to the far north to train with the demanding Bill Arkwright.Arkwright lives in a haunted mill on the edge of a treacherous marsh, and his training methods prove to be harsh and sometimes cruel. Will Tom's new bag of tricks be enough to overcome a critical mistake that leaves him confronting Bloodeye on his own?More
Christopher Evan Welch's strong and spirited presentation enhances this outstanding tale. Welch skillfully presents the appealing Tom Ward as he learns the ins and outs of being a spook's apprentice. Most exciting is Tom's verbal sparring with some very creepy-sounding tricksters. A bit of fun enters an otherwise dark story when the cat who does the cooking purrs as her delicious cooking is complimented by hungry men. Conversations about Tom's family and his mixed reaction to being saved by Alice Dean bring reality to the story. The conclusion assures listeners that the next installment will answer their many questions.
