Tom Ward is the Spook, the one person who can defend the county from bloodthirsty creatures of the dark. But he's only 17, and his apprenticeship was cut short when his master died in battle.
No one trusts Tom's skill, not till he's proven himself. And a 15-year-old girl named Jenny knows more about the three mysterious deaths in the county than Tom does. She is a seventh daughter of a seventh daughter, and she wants to be Tom's first apprentice – even though a female Spook is unheard of.
Together Tom and Jenny will uncover the grave danger heading straight toward the county, and they'll team up with a witch assassin to confront it.
A New Darkness begins a three-book arc that will introduce new readers to Joseph Delaney's deliciously scary imagination and electrify his longtime fans. A New Darkness is perfect for every listener who loves thrills, chills, action, and adventure – no prior knowledge of the Last Apprentice series necessary!
"Delaney’s narrative...starts slow, but horrific scenes of grotesque monsters and the threat of danger gradually seep through and heighten the tension all the way up to the cliff-hanger ending. Fans of the Last Apprentice series will be happy to see Tom at work again." (Booklist)
