Now it’s the dark’s turn to be afraid…

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?

Quotes & Awards

  • “Christopher Evan Welch skillfully juggles voices, most notably conveying the Spook's irascibility and Tom's earnestness. Yet it is the Bane that takes center stage with its echoing hiss and eerie, Yoda-like syntax. The violence and villains here are not for the faint of heart.”

    School Library Journal (audio review)

  • “This tale is more than a well-crafted horror story. Delaney infuses his characters with depth and emotion, but equally important, he grows his world by contributing significantly to the back story…Delaney also does an exceptional job of interweaving stories, with one plot point leading insistently to the next; at the book’s conclusion readers can go over all Tom has learned by leafing through his journal. Kids will breathlessly await Tom’s next adventure.”

    Booklist

  • “Readers will be hooked from the first line.”
