The second terrifying tale in the Spook's spin-off series from best-selling author Joseph Delaney.
Thomas Ward was working as the new County Spook, fighting the Dark with his own apprentice. But a new enemy stirred in the north, and Tom's calling required him to leave his home and lead an uprising against a legion of beasts: creatures of the Dark intent on locking the whole Earth in a never-ending winter.
Then something went horribly wrong, and now Tom lies cold in a grave while those who remain are in despair.
Who can now take up the battle? And how much time remains before the Dark army brings the fight back to the county, and the world is changed for ever?

I really like this series in general, so I will definitely read the next one. I would also happily listen to another book read by Clare Corbett.
Good ending - looking forward to the next one.
The female actors were excellent, but the male actor who read Tom Ward was dreadful. Absolutely dreadful. He made Tom sound like a simpleton and I think this narration actually stopped me enjoying the story. He genuinely sounded like Mr Bloom from CBeebies. I would therefore cast virtually anyone else as Tom, as long as he doesn't read like he's narrating to infants.
Overall, disappointed. As mentioned above, though, this is more due to the performance than the book. If the next one is narrated by the same cast, I'll just read it.
I have enjoyed the Spooks series previously and the Character of Tom is in my opinion weakened in this book. I'm not sure whether it is the writing or the narrator but the image I had of both Tom and Alice were considerably different from the ones portrayed in this novel. I hoped it would improve, unfortunately it didn't, very disappointing
real good story I can't wait for the next book to come out it got alot of Acton and tension also it's action packed full of good moments and sad moments and done a great job on this book
