"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?

Its first sections were boring, but I suppose necessary. The revelations we receive later on about the characters were thrilling, and some parts left me genuinely shocked. Most of the action scenes were a little short, but otherwise exciting. I sometimes wish the characters weren't so malleable, but it works well enough. As with the previous book, it picked up toward the end, and some very important plot points took place. Worth the read just as much as any "Spook's" book.
