"You can't make alliances with witches and suchlike and hope to avoid being drawn toward the dark."
As the Spook's apprentice, Thomas Ward's first duty is to protect the County from ghosts, boggarts, and other dangerous creatures. But now his mother has come back from her homeland to seek his help. One of the most dangerous of the old witches, Ordeen, is about to return to earth, bringing with her suffering and devastation. Tom's mother has mustered a powerful army—including Tom's friend Alice, the Pendle witches, and the assassin Grimalkin—to confront Ordeen. If Tom joins them, the Spook will refuse to take Tom back as his apprentice. What sacrifices will be made in the battle against the dark?

This book has to be by far the most heart breaking of the series, maybe one of them. But anyway, this book is in a whole new setting, and new settings mean new dangers, when you read you feel the anger, sadness, love, and fear from the characters. I gotta say this book makes the rest of the series great. Lots of danger, suspense, and twists. I recommend this series HIGHLY
Loved this one couldn't put it down!!
I thought this was a great book in the series, actually probably my favorite so far... :)
It is awfully sad that Mam had to die though, along with Arkwright!! :(
I can't believe Tom sold his soul to The Fiend, he kinda tricked him into doing it...
I hope that this series leaves of with a good conclusion :)
