The Spook, Tom and Alice travel to Ireland, fleeing from the war in the County. The only thing protecting Tom and Alice is the fragile and precious bloodjar. They must remain together and the jar intact - otherwise they are both at the mercy of the Fiend himself.

Meanwhile Tom is recruited to tackle the evil mage alliance, on a mission which ultimately leads him to the possession of the Spook's Blade. A sword with a dark side and a thirst of its own for blood... It's the only weapon that has a fighting chance against the Fiend in combat. But first Tom needs training, and the only person who can help him is Grimalkin, the witch assassin. Will she come? And if she does, whose side will this creature of the dark be on?

Listener Opinions

    " Things are picking up for Tom Ward & company (as if they weren't wild enough) & the story seems to have begun drawing to its natural close. This entry finds Tom, the Spook John Gregory, & Alice taking on the Fiend himself as they are forced to travel to Ireland. The relationship between Tom & Alice is becoming more complicated, as the blood jar binding them to each other (& keeping them safe from the Fiend) develops some cracks, & Tome realizes his feelings for her may be more than mere friendship. (The adult reader will have seen this coming quite a while ago.) These books continue to be very enjoyably creepy, a sensation made stronger by the excellently ominous drawings. "

    " I really like this series, but I just couldn't finish it because it gave me such a weird feeling as I continued to read. I hope the next book doesn't follow suit. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniel | 2/3/2014

    " if you like the series, like horror, or like intriuging books, read it!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendy | 2/2/2014

    " Another great book in the ongoing series....Can't wait to see what becomes to Alice in the next book "

    " Entertaining, trademark "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brannigan | 1/22/2014

    " I have to say this was the slowest book in the series for me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Haylee | 1/15/2014

    " So far this was my least favorite of the books. It just didn't have as much to it as some of the others. Even though I wasn't a huge fan of "Clash of the Demons" I thought it was a far better book. This one just felt like filler to me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anna - Boktycke | 1/12/2014

    " Review in Swedish at Boktycke. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 1/8/2014

    " There is a lot going on in this story, and it is fairly interesting and also satisfying, but I do wonder how many more books we will have before we reach the conclusion. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Catherine | 1/7/2014

    " Loved this one! Just when I thought they were getting a little repetiive, along comes another great one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Terryann | 11/8/2013

    " seriously, grimaulkin is BAD. i can't wait for the next book. love the new twist on alice, can't say i wasn't expecting it, but love it anyway. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ally | 8/16/2013

    " Not my favorite in the series. Tom doesn't seem to be getting any smarter and its frustrating. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 2/20/2013

    " Better than #7, thankfully. I thought Tom could have been a little more broken up about Alice, but his response was at least in character. Alice is really worrying me now, though. I like that eight books later, I still care about her. And Tom. And the Spook. That's rare. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniel Taylor | 1/30/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 10/1/2012

    " I didn't like this as much as #7, but it's a great book in a great series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Frank Bogden | 5/21/2012

    " Delany continues to excite the reader and develop these wonderful characters. The action and suspense of the story makes it an easy read. Somehow he has managed to tell each individual story but manage to keep you wanting the rest of Tom and Alice's saga. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 1/7/2012
