Warning: Not to be listened to after dark

Capturing witches, Binding boggarts, Driving away ghosts

For years, Old Gregory has been the Spook for the county, ridding the local villages of evil. Now his time is coming to an end. But who will take over for him? Twenty-nine apprentices have tried -- some floundered, some fled, some failed to stay alive.

Only Thomas Ward is left. He's the last hope; the last apprentice. Can Thomas succeed? Will he learn the difference between a benign witch and a malevolent one? Does the Spook's warning against girls with pointy shoes include Alice? And what will happen if Thomas accidentally frees Mother Malkin, the most evil witch in the county ... ?

Performed by Christopher Evan Welch

Quotes & Awards

  • “Warning: This is not a tale for the squeamish…Welch superbly builds the tension.”

    AudioFile

  • “An excellent choice for readers who are looking for a more sophisticated alternative to R. L. Stine’s Goosebumps books…A solid choice.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Delaney grabs readers by the throat and gives them a good shake in a smartly crafted story…The twisted horror is amply buffered by an exquisitely normal young hero, matter-of-fact prose, and a workaday normalcy. Still…bad things are always there to catch readers off guard. As the warning label on the cover notes, this is ‘Not to be read after dark.’”

    Booklist

  • “This well-crafted novel marks an auspicious start for an exciting and fast series for young teens.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “Readers seeking lots of up-close encounters with the unquiet dead and other creepy entities need look no further.”
