Publisher's Summary

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?


What the Critics Say

"Delaney infuses his characters with depth and emotion, but equally important, he grows his world by contributing significantly to the back story....Kids will breathlessly await Tom's next adventure." (Booklist)

Thoroughly Enjoyable

This is the second book in this young adult series and it is definitely as good as the first. I am an adult and perhaps shouldn't be admitting to enjoying this series, but I do! The stories are excellent character-driven sotries and the narration is outstanding. I highly recommend this series.

Intense fun

This was an intense and fun listen. The narrator was perfectly matched to the content and overall it was well-read.
Parental warning: With the "body-pressing" and some of the other graphically detailed descriptions in this book, I will be waiting a year or two to share it with my ten yr old daughter.
