What to expect

Brought to you by Puffin.

Another thrilling and magical adventure from master storyteller Joseph Delaney, set in the multi-million copy bestselling world of The Spook’s Apprentice


We are entering a new age of darkness. Hell has grown in power and neither priest nor Spook can do anything about it. So go home now while you can . . .

Years have passed since Wulf and Tilda vanished from the County. Alice and Tom have given up hope of ever seeing them again – until a terrible enemy from the past forces them to take drastic action, and reach out through time in a bid for help.

Now Wulf faces the greatest and most powerful demon who has ever walked the Dark: the Fiend. He will have to use all his powers – and gather some new ones – to have even a chance of survival . . .
