It's going to be a long, hard, cruel winter. And there couldn't be a worse place to spend it than up on Anglezarke.
Thomas Ward is the apprentice for the local Spook, who captures witches and drives away ghosts. As the weather gets colder and the nights draw in, the Spook receives an unexpected visitor. Tom doesn't know who the stranger is or what he wants, but the Spook suddenly decides it's time to travel to his winter house, Anglezarke. Tom has heard it will be a bleak, forbidding place, and that menacing creatures are starting to stir somewhere on the moors nearby.
Can anything prepare Tom for what he finds there? What if the rumors about the evil beast called the Golgoth are true? And how much danger will Tom be in if the secrets the Spook has been trying to hide from the world are revealed?

Joseph DELANEY is the author of the internationally best-selling The Last Apprentice series, which is now a major motion picture, Seventh Son. He is a former English teacher who lives in the heart of boggart territory in Lancashire, England. His village has a boggart called the Hall Knocker, which was laid to rest under the step of a house near the church.From AudioFile:
In the third of the Last Apprentice series, Tom is apprenticed to the Spook, who is charged with hunting down witches and ghosts. Tom uncovers a witch's plot to plunge the land into eternal darkness. Since Tom is telling his tale, Welch reflects the apprentice's fears when facing monsters, his chagrin at his own foolish mistakes, and his triumph at overcoming evil. Welch is equally adept at conveying the wise Spook and hissing witches, often in the same breath. It seems strange that Welch gives Tom an American accent when all the other characters sound distinctly British, but the mélange adds to the otherworldly setting. This audio is a good choice to listen to on a dark and stormy night. M.M.O. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
