In the middle of it…Attack of the fiend

Attack of the fiend by Joseph DelaneyIf you like reading creepy, gruesome horror stories, you definitely have to pick up The last apprentice series by Joseph Delaney. In this series, Tom, the seventh son of a seventh son, begins working for the village spook. Being the village spook doesn’t mean that Tom goes around pretending to be a ghost. He actually does the opposite–protects others from witches, boggarts, and other creatures of the “Dark.” So far I’ve listened to every book in the series on CD, but I definitely want to pick up the actual books–I hear there are pictures that will get your spine tingling.

In Attack of the fiend the latest book in the series, Tom’s family is being held hostage by a clan of malevolent witches determined to raise the Fiend (otherwise known as THE devil). In order to save them, Tom will have to face a legendary assassin witch who enjoys snipping her victims to pieces and a hooved creature that can not only see the future, but also loves the taste of blood. This book is definitely not for the faint of heart! I’m listening to it on CD right now and I’ve had to stop a couple of times because it was just getting too stressful! I can’t wait to see how it ends…I just hope I can make it until then.
