Summary

The Spook and his apprentice, Thomas Ward, deal with the dark. Together they rid the county of witches, ghosts, and boggarts. In this third and terrifying instalment in the Wardstone Chronicles, the nights are drawing in and it's time for Tom and his master to move to Anglezarke, the Spook's winter house. Tom has heard it will be a sinister and menacing place, but nothing could fully prepare him for what he finds there. For this house, and indeed the whole of Anglezarke moor, is full of secrets about the Spook's past. Secrets that are about to come to the surface and could wreak havoc on the whole County.

Winning Third Book

The third story int he Wardstone Chronicle was as good as the previous ones. As scary and magical as the rest. With new plot development to tantilise and tease. My only complain is that again they get a new narrate to read the story. While Thomas Judd did a sterling job and I really enjoyed his reading of the book, I would have liked consistency with the second and first.

Brillant!

Great story as usual from retreat without Joseph Delaney. So much background and underground work. Always a good read Irvin my case listen. And Thomas Judd brings it all to life amazingly.

Great book, unfortunate glitches

Love the story, and the narration of this book (unlike the previous book where the narration was extremely over dramatised). Unfortunately there were a few parts in the book which seemed to glitch and jump. Initially thought it was my headphones but went back and listened again a few times and it was definitely the book. It didn’t skip enough to miss a lot of the story but was still very irritating at the time.
