‘It’s a dangerous job, but someone has to do it.’
For years, the local Spook kept the county safe from evil. But now his time has ended, and there is only one boy who can take over – Thomas Ward, barely more than a child himself. Now he too must take on an apprentice, a girl called Jenny who is untested but willing to be trained in the dangerous life of a Spook.
When girls start dying in mysterious circumstances, they soon find themselves on the path of a terrifying and deadly beast. Monstrous assassins are loose in the County, and far to the north, a new darkness is rising that threatens to engulf the whole world. Do Tom and Jenny stand a chance against the might of the Kobalos?
The first terrifying tale in the Starblade Chronicles, from the bestselling author of The Spook’s Apprentice

Love every single book in the ward stone chronicles and looking forward to the new starblade chronicles with Tom and Jenny. I recommend every single book so that you can follow the adventure and learn about the characters. Cannot wait for book 2 of this series.
Great read but no clue to the next book
Spooks series 2
I've read all the spooks books and this is by far the best book I've read. I can't wait for the next one of the new series
