YOUNG ADULT REVIEW: The Spook's Stories: Witches - Joseph Delaney


This is a fabulous collection of stories based on many of the witches from Joseph Delaney's Spooks books. Ever wondered why the Spook doesn't trust girls who wear pointy shoes? Or why Grimalkin became the Assassin for the Malkin Witch clan? Find out all this and more in this a dark and eerie collection. You don't have to know the Spook's books to enjoy the stories. They're all standalone and absolutely haunting. This is a perfect introduction to the world of "The Spook's Apprentice". But for any fans of the series out there, this collection will be a must-have.


With a successful series to his name, there’s been plenty of questions left that readers have demanded answers to but perhaps the one that has been cried out the most often is: “How do I get into this series, there is so much out there that I’d drown as soon as I put my foot in?”

Well worry no longer my little bookwyrm. For Joseph has written a book that allows you the chance to get some background as well as the chance to dive in head first without losing any of the angles or his trademark storytelling but also allows you to see if his work is the thing for you. It’s beautifully constructed, has nice, easy to manage tales and above all only seeks to bring the reader deeper into the world without confusing them. Ideal material and with the fun I had with this offering, I will definitely be checking out the other books in the series as I can’t believe I missed this much fun.
