"I see your future clearly. Your master will be dead, and you will be alone. It would be better if you had never been born."

Thomas Ward is the apprentice for the local Spook, who banishes boggarts and drives away ghosts. But now a new danger is threatening Tom's world: the witches are rising and the three most powerful clans are uniting in order to conjure an unimaginable evil.

Tom and the Spook set out to stop the witches before they unleash the demon. But when Tom finds himself on his own, he wonders if he has the courage and cunning to defeat the most powerful enemy he has ever encountered.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mindy Chisam | 2/17/2014

    " What can i say!!! loved this book. this book was a very good eye opening book. i saw some of the stuff coming. Like the fact that Tom's mom is a witch, and that she would leave all of her stuff to him. but i didn't see that the room was all safe and that the trunks would be full of her sister's. The pindle witch's gave them a run for there money. but Tom had a trick up his sleeve and he didn't even know it yet. This is the first book that made the "bad" thing get the better of the spook and Tom. this book was way good i am already started the 5th book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaye | 2/16/2014

    " I didn't like this one as much as I've liked the first three. I had a hard time focusing on it, and I think part of the problem was that there wasn't as much interaction with the side characters that I usually enjoy (Alice and the Spook, chiefly). However, I will still eagerly look forward to the 5th book! "

    " These books are delightfully gory, and I really like the creative spin on witches, boggarts and other dark creatures. I was having problems forming a connection with the characters but toward the end of the book i really started to feel it. looking forward to to reading the next one. "

    " I give it 5 stars. I recommend you read this book. I would read the other books in the series first. If you don't like little purple monster things that drink blood this isn't the book you want to read. This book might scare some people. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abe | 3/17/2012

    " I would've given it a 5, but towards the middle, it lists information that's not exciting; it doesn't hook you. But towards the end of the book, with the two lamias, witches, and them taking over Malkin Tower, it really hooks you. "

    " I can't believe how this book can work. Seriously the scariest thing I've ever read yet it's clean. If they made a movie out of this, what would it be rated? All that blood and gruesomeness would have to make it R right? So scary. "
