The Spook’s Curse is a fantasy-adventure book written by Joseph Delaney. It is a book about two men who fight the darkness and evil on the planet.
The main characters include Tom Ward, who is the Spook’s apprentice. He has lessons with him about the darkness and the evil creatures that live around the world. Tom likes being the Spook’s apprentice, but he knows that the Spook is hiding a secret and he wants to know what it is. The Spook is a man who needs to protect the world around him from the evil and the darkness. He saves people and helps them with the darkness.
Tom Ward and the Spook look around their surroundings to find and fight the evil creatures. One day Tom has to do some work for the Spook with the help of some hired riggers. Tom and the riggers have to build a nine feet deep pit to bury a person that was killed by evil. Later, Tom goes to the church. He hears about a boggart attacking a priest who was the Spook’s brother. That’s when Tom fights an angry boggart for the first time in his life. After that he was very tired so he went to the Spook's library to relax and read. He found one of the Spook’s diaries and discovered that the Spook has broken one of his own rules by hanging out with a girl who turned out to be a witch. From then onwards he never wanted to go near a attractive girl. Later on the Spook had some business to do in a town called Priest Town. Then he told Tom that he also wants to finally beat the most evil creature in the whole planet, called The Bane. It was unbeatable, but now the Spook has collected his strength and wants to beat the Bane forever.
The story is written in standard English. Here is a quote from the book to show you what kind of text the story is written in: “Who I am is none of your business, boy. But your master knows me well enough.”
The Spook’s Curse is the second book from the Wardstone Chronicles. The other books are The Spook’s Apprentice , The Spook’s Secret , The Spook’s Battle The Spook’s Mistake , The Spook’s Sacrifice , The Spook’s Witches and The Spook’s Nightmare .
I think this book is really good because it shows what kind of imagination the author has. I would recommend this book to people around my age, around 11-15. I would give this book 4 stars out of 5.
