The Spook's Apprentice
Author: Joseph Delaney

For years, Old Gregory has been the Spook for the county, ridding the local villages of evil. Now his time is coming to an end. But who will take over for him? Twenty-nine apprentices have tried—some floundered, some fled, some failed to stay alive.

Only Thomas Ward is left. He's the last hope, the last apprentice.

Many young fantasy novels wrap themselves in the dressing of Harry Potter and end up with tired stories featuring knock-off characters. Delaney really delivers the goods in Revenge of the Witch. This is a no holds barred horror tale with enough gore and other-worldly creepiness to keep you up at night. Delaney doesn't pull punches. He gives us murderous bad guys who are truly evil (not monologuing carbon copies of Voldemort), and good guys who are truly human. I internalized Thomas' fears to the extent that I dreaded turning the page to see what new terror awaited him. The haunted house scene near the beginning is worth the price alone. The nail-biting conclusion is easily the most memorable since the Hobbit or The High King. Epic in a very understated and humble fashion.
