The Last Apprentice: Curse of the Bane, by Joseph Delaney
This is the second book in an very interesting horror/fantasy
series. Thomas Ward is an apprentice spook, someone who gets
rid of ghosts, witches, and other creepy things that go bump in
the night. After he has dealt with a powerful Ripper, the most
dangerous kind of boggert, Tom is feeling pretty pleased with
himself. However its victim was his master's brother, and when
he dies Tom and his master head out to Priestown to his funeral.
A horrible and powerful spirit called the Bane has been
terrorizing the town and they hope to defeat it.
I recommend that if you want to read this series you start with
the first book, Revenge of The Witch. This series is very good.
The characters are interesting and the plot is interesting. The
author has created a creepy and interesting world.
