The Spook's Sacrifice by Joseph Delaney

The Spook's SacrificeThe Spook's Sacrifice

As the Spook’s apprentice Tom’s first duty is to protect the County from the dark. But now Mam needs his help in her homeland of Greece. One of the most dangerous of the old gods, the Ordeen, is about to return there, bringing slaughter and devastation. Meanwhile, the Devil himself is still loose and if he and the Ordeen join forces, a new age of darkness will descend. 

Mam has summoned a powerful group to her side but among them are Tom’s old enemy, the Pendle witches, including the assassin Grimalkin, and the cunning clan leader Mab Moldheel. Can Tom go against all the Spook has taught him and ally himself to the witches? What is the secret that Mam is keeping from him? And what sacrifices must be made in the battle against the dark?

As usual I borrowed the summary from Joseph Delaney's website. The Spook's Sacrifice is the sixth book in the Spook's Series. In this book Tom's mother plays an important role. She wants Tom to join her in a fight against the Ord, her sworn enemy.
The world is getting darker and darker and Tom has to give up some of his beliefs to do what he has to do. The Fiend is never far away. Fortunately Alice will stand by him again. A lot of terrible things happen and they are all sinister and gruesome. Not all enemies can be defeated at once and Tom finds himself in dire situations many times. What will they cost him and does Tom come out completely intact? I loved this book just as much as the previous ones, these books are truly wonderful!
