'Someone has to stand against the dark. And you're the only one who can.' For years, the local Spook has been keeping the County safe from evil. Now his time is coming to an end, but who will take over? Many apprentices have tried ...Some floundered, some fled, some failed to stay alive. Just one boy is left. Thomas Ward. He is the last hope. But does he stand a chance against Mother Malkin, the most dangerous witch in the County? The first chilling tale in the Wardstone Chronicles, the series that inspired the forthcoming movie The Seventh Son, starring Jeff Bridges, Ben Barnes and Julianne Moore.
The fact that the author's description was so accurate that you could imagine it happening right in your room which made you scared to death!!!!!!!!!!! I stayed up full night to finish reading the book, but couldn't sleep the rest of the night because I kept having nightmares. Horror. Recommended to 11 years and ABOVE.
