The decision is made that for six months, Bill Arkwright (a former apprentice and current Spook in a neighboring County), will teach Ward. They will focus on fighting and defending ones self. Arkwright has additional demons that are out of control, and though Gregory is aware of them, he still believes sending Ward is the best move. Not wanting to be away from Alice, Ward reluctantly agrees to the temporary assignment.
The newest threat is Morwena, a water witch. Where many witches cannot cross running water, a water witch thrives in it. They are very dangerous. Arkwright and Ward must battle the creature. It looks like the Fiend is closing in on Ward as well.
With dangerous bogs, and rising tides, with people kidnapped, and witches everywhere, Ward finds himself in a desperate place where he must choose between doing what is right, and doing what will save more lives. Choices are all around him. Many will only serve to anger Gregory. Most will save his life.
Great secrets of family lineage are revealed. The book ends on a terrible cliff hanger. I want to say more about how upsetting the last few chapters are, but will not spoil it for readers.
All I can tell you is I am thrilled I have Book 6 sitting right beside me!

Bill Arkwright is an abrasive Spook that likes the red wine...alot. He doesnt have the same morals for the dark as John Gregory. This is a little upsetting to Tom. The Fiend is back and will surely be coming for him so he needs to be trained in physical combat.
What will happen when the Fiend sends his children after Tom? Read this book and find out!
Ill say it again folks! I absolutely love this series! I cannot wait to finish it! But then I think Ill be a little sad because the fun will be over :( .
I didn't really enjoy this part of the story. The series so far has focused on Tom, his Spook master and Alice who may or may not be an evil witch. The tale lost some of its flair when Tom went off to battle skelks, and water witches with a disreputable drunk as an instructor.
And I hated that Alice has (for now) been kicked out of the group. The only strong female character in the series and Delaney sends her packing? She was by far the most interesting one of the bunch. Actually, the books would probably be better if they focused more on Alice. At least she's in touch with her feelings. The boys are all repressing something and using violence to solve every problem.
But still, a good read. Not as good as "The Soul Stealer" but highly enjoyable.
