The Spook's Revenge by Joseph Delaney

Everything ends

The final battle with the Dark approaches
‘He's the seventh son of a seventh son. His name is Thomas J. Ward and he's my gift to the County. When he's old enough we'll send you word. Train him well. He'll be the best apprentice you've ever had and he'll also be your last.’

These were the words of Tom's Mam to the county Spook some years ago. As Tom, the Spook and their allies prepare to battle with the Fiend on a huge scale, to finally enact their revenge, it now remains to be seen whether Mam's declaration will come true.

I borrowed the summary from Joseph Delaney's website. In the Spook's Revenge Tom has to fight the battle he's been preparing for for such a long time. He has to try to defeat the Fiend. Things aren't looking so well, the Fiend has many followers and Tom and the Spook have only got a few. Tom also loses one of his dearest allies. Will he be able to do what he has to do under these circumstances?
This was again a book filled with monsters, creepy characters and unexpected surprises. Tom has grown from an insecure boy into a heroic young adult. Even though it looks like he won't be able to reach his goal he keeps fighting until the very end. This isn't a happy story, but it's a great one. The Spook's Revenge is a worthy ending of the Wardstone Chronicles. I will miss the series, but fortunately Joseph Delaney has started the Starblade Chronicles with Tom as a spook. I can't wait to find out what will happen next!

  1. That black Osyterflex bracelet may look like a standard rubber strap but it comes equipped with what breitling replica sale calls a longitudinal cushion system that combines the stability of a rolex replica sale with the comfort of a strap. Mechanical automatic movements power both sizes of the Rolex Oyster Yacht Master, the best replica watches for the rolex replica sale and the Caliber 2236 for the 37mm version. The case is water-resistant to tag heuer replica. The inspiration for the new timepiece was a unique submersible vessel called the Deepsea Challenger. This submersible was the result of a collaboration between Cameron and replica watches plus a few other companies. The vessel is capable of diving to a depth of 11,000 meters beneath the rolex replica allowing views of sea life never before seen by man.
