[Young Adult Fiction (Ages 12-17)]
[Read by Thomas Judd, Clare Corbett, Gabrielle Glaister]
In this first book in a chilling new trilogy from the author of the internationally bestselling 'Last Apprentice' series, Tom Ward is an apprentice no longer - he is a full-fledged spook battling boggarts, witches, and other creatures of the dark.
Tom Ward is the spook, the one person who can defend the county from bloodthirsty creatures of the dark. But he's only seventeen, and his apprenticeship was cut short when his master died in battle. No one trusts Tom's skill, not till he's proven himself. And a fifteen-year-old girl named Jenny knows more about the three mysterious deaths in the county than Tom does. She is a seventh daughter of a seventh daughter, and she wants to be Tom's first apprentice - even though a female spook is unheard of. Together, Tom and Jenny will uncover the grave danger heading straight toward the county, and they'll team up with a witch assassin to confront it.
A New Darkness begins a three-book arc that will introduce new readers to Joseph Delaney's deliciously scary imagination and electrify his longtime fans. It is perfect for every reader who loves thrills, chills, action, and adventure - no prior knowledge of the 'Last Apprentice' series necessary!
'The Last Apprentice' series, the first internationally bestselling series about Tom Ward, is soon to be a major motion picture, ''Seventh Son'', starring Jeff Bridges, Ben Barnes, Alicia Vikander, Kit Harington, Olivia Williams, Antje Traue, Djimon Hounsou, and Julianne Moore as Mother Malkin.
Something is terrorizing the villages of the county. People are dying—covered in blood, their faces frozen in fear. But with not a wound on their bodies.
Battling creatures of the dark is the job of the local spook, but seventeen-year-old Thomas Ward never finished his apprenticeship. It will be no easy task to earn the trust of the villagers and to defeat a monster that no one has ever seen.
Yet Jenny—a seventh daughter of a seventh daughter—knows an awful lot about this new evil. And she's willing to share what she's learned with Tom . . . if he takes her on as his apprentice. No girl has ever been a spook's apprentice before. But vanquishing this creature will take Tom and Jenny far from home. And that's exactly what Jenny wants.
This new arc in the legend of Thomas Ward, the hero of the best-selling The Last Apprentice series, begins a dark and sweeping adventure that will chill your very soul.About the Author :
