    About "Joseph Delaney"

      • Joseph Delaney

        Joseph Delaney is a full time writer living in Lancashire, in the heart of Boggart territory He first got the idea for the Wardstone Chronicles series when he moved to the village where he lives now and discovered there was a local boggart a man like me needs boggarts around He made a note in his notebook a story about a man who hunts boggarts and years later when he had to come up with an idea at short notice developed this into The Spook s Apprentice , the first book in the series.He continues to draw upon the folklore of Lancashire and has acquired much local knowledge over the years which he tweaks and modifies to create his fictional world Another source of inspiration has been Lancashire s varied and atmospheric landscape Many of the locations in the County are based on actual places in Lancashire In the early days of his writing career Joseph worked as a teacher at a Sixth Form College his subjects were English, Film and Media Studies He used to get up early and write every morning before work That way he could write a book a year which promptly got rejected When the Americans bought the series he decided to give up teaching and write full time Prior to teaching he worked as an engineer in his twenties, completing an apprenticeship just like Tom Ward in the spook s books.Joseph describes his method of writing as a process of discovery He doesn t plot too far ahead and often doesn t know what is going to happen until he writes it down In other words he makes it up as he goes along He prefers writing dialogue to description, in which he says he is a minimalist and leaves much to the reader s imagination He has a new series underway, Arena 13 This is a complete departure from the world of ghosts, ghasts and boggarts and centres on a young boy called Leith and surprisingly, an Arena and an evil creature called Hob Joseph has three children and nine grandchildren and is a wonderful public speaker available for conference, library and bookshop events.The Spook s Apprentice, The Spook s Curse and The Spook s Secret have all been shortlisted for the Lancashire children s Book for the Year Award The Spook s Apprentice is the winner of both the Sefton Book Award and the Hampshire Book Awardom publisher s website


    1. If a book description gives away something that happens in the next-to-last chapter, can it be not considered a spoiler? My advice would be to avoid reading it. Anyway we are finally back to the main characters of the series after a detour in the previous book. Spook rebuilds his burned down home and desperately wants to restore his priceless library. So when his former apprentice mentioned a woman inherited a lot of related books and is willing to sell some of them, he immediately sets off acco [...]

    2. 6.5/10Another good story in the series and we're back onto the main storyline after the side story in the last outing but things never really grabbed me like some of the others in the series. It feels like the wheels are just spinning and we're not progressing a whole load towards the final outcome. There is plenty to like; the good characters, the development of Alice and the realisation her strength is greater than Tom thought, the fiend and his tricks. But this and the last book could have be [...]

    3. Wow. What a roller coaster it's been, the whole journey.And now.It's near the end. *Sniff*It's.Finally.Gonna.End.Why???? *Breaks into full-blown sobs, shoulders heaving. Blows nose loudly into a handful of tissues, composes herself*But I'm going to be mature about this. I was 11 when I started this series, and I feel like I've grown up with it, along with Tom, Alice and Old Gregory. All my old copies of the series are dog-eared, with spills from juice and coke from when I was younger, each and e [...]

    4. I debated between 3 and 4 stars, but I just get such a kick out of this series I went with 4. Every book has an original antagonist and always builds on the endearing relationship between the witch, Alice, and the spook, or evil being hunter, Tom. Once again the characters are great to read about, the story flows well, and I didn't want to put it down. The only weak points are the master spook, Gregory, and the threading storyline of the fiend. Gregory is becoming a bore and the fiend Judy needs [...]

    5. I can't see how many have read this to rate itI HAVE read it because Joseph is a friend and he kindly allows me a manuscript. I promote his and many other authors in the NW. His books mean a lot to me as they are so local and so damn good too. If the film makes a difference then sometime soon we all will go .w I read that and it is truly a real alternative to all things magically wizardly. His 'County' is even better than Hogwarts 'cos it is 'Warts and all' a truly spectacular reinvention of 'lo [...]

    6. MILD SPOILERS! I just started reading again (after hybernating for Hell knows how long)is book is amazing, I had to sniffled like crazy because it's just heart-breaking, blood-curling, mind-wrenching, tragically lovely romance between our Dear Tom and the lovely Alice Duane.I JUST CAN'T TAKE IT!WHYYY? Delaney why??? they deserves to be married, have 5 kids at least and start a good life being a spook/witch.but I guess, without the tragic thingy, I would have drooped my eyes outt really, this boo [...]

    7. I have mentioned before my personal rating system which kind of goes 'stars for however I felt about that book.' And of course there is adjustment in this system for different genres as I tend to like books differently within genres and rate them differently for each genre. So my system tends to be very much a patchwork of up and down ratings. Now why am I beginning my review with this? Well I actually didn't have a reason I thought it would be a good thing to throw in there and test my readersN [...]

    8. The Spook's Blood is a medieval fantasy book.The reason I read this book is because I had already started the series after being recommended it, and I just loved it, so I've followed the books and looked forward to the new releases for a long time.The main plot is for Tom, the Spook's apprentice, to destroy Siscoi, the old god who the witches are trying to raise. He does this by persevering with hardship, the long nights and the horror.Tomas Ward, a 15 year old who turns 16, is a Spook's apprent [...]

    9. Wardstone Chronicles Book 10*The Spook's Blood*I feel it coming! The end obviously, what else? Delaney provides another great supplement to the Wardstone Chronicles, one that will surely hook you and make you realize where the series is going to end. The plot is absolutely amazing and we come back to Tom's PoV narration after the previous book. This was my first time reading the book so I was excited to read new things. And new things are what I got, a new region, new alliances, new enemies, new [...]

    10. Tom Ward este al șaptelea fiu unui al șaptelea fiu. De această dată, împreună cu niște aliați puternici, Tom ajunge să se confrunte cu vrăjitoarele din România. Într-o luptă aprigă dintre forțele întunericului și vraci, John Gregory dispare, iar Tom trebuie să-l găsească pe magistrul său cu orice preț.Perioada în care Diavolul trebuie priponit se apropie tot mai repede, iar Tom deja începe să se gândească la sacrificiile pe care va trebui să le facă.

    11. You have to accept that in this world things are constantly changing. Nothing stays the same forever. We have to learn to live with that.- p.4---K**p**t emang baca-nya, ampe nggak berani ngelanjutin. ---Baca bareng Mbak Mia, 3 buku lagiiiiiiiii

    12. Lure of the Dead is the 10th book in The Last Apprentice Series. The series follows Tom Ward who is an apprentice to John Gregory. John Gregory is the County's local Spook, who deals with creatures from the dark. In this book, Tom, Mr. Gregory, and Tom's friend Alice (a witch) are back in the County after traveling to Ireland. The 3 of them had to travel to Ireland as refugees after enemies had invaded the County. The Spook's house had been burned by the enemy soldiers, and Tom and the Spook are [...]

    13. I'm on my tenth one!!! :) Soon I'll catch up with Glam. :)Whoa. One of the best book in the series. From 'The Dark Lord' to 'Strigoi' and 'Moroi'. HP and VA. Lol. The Spook's blood proved my hypothesis wrong. Since I, admittedly, have seen JP's question to Glam earlier (Yes, it was placed in a spoiler and I still read it), I was really shocked about it. I started to think that he's dead.I actually didn't think that this series would add Vampires in their list of evil denizens of the dark. It is [...]

    14. As expected from the wardstone chronicles, its fantastic! when you read this book, you feel as if your inside it, exploring the world of Thomas Ward.In Spook's Blood, you wouldnt guess what will happen next and it will give you lots of emotion at the same time. as for me, i feel sad, curious, relieved and excited at the same time. its like you scrying on a mirror and suddenly the mirror goes blank. Its as if Im Tom, Grimalkin and Alice at the same time. I feel the presence of the characters and [...]

    15. O MY GOD!!!!!!! This book omg. This book really scared me. I have had so many different feelings during this book. This was amazing. It's sad to think that this series is coming to an end. There are only three more books left.

    16. This book is the 10th book in the Last Apprentice series. This book is really is about how Tom's adventure with his master, the local spook, John Gregory. This time, they have to fight the Vampire god, sent by the Fiend. I feel like Tom Ward sometimes because it is sometimes hard to do things without the help of your guardian.

    17. You can be afraid, but don't ever give up to the dark. Sacrifices are required, never an easy decision, but that is Spook's life.***Baca bareng Echa, tiga buku lagi petualangan Tom ini selesai!

    18. Reviewed First at Brunner's BookshelfThe last book allowed us to follow the Witch assassin Grimalkin as she tried to keep the head of the Fiend from falling into the hands of his followers. We also got to learn more about her past and why she has decided to join Tom as he tries to defeat the Fiend for good. This book brings us back to Tom and the Spook. Finally the war is over and they can begin rebuilding the house that will one day be Tom's when he takes over as the county Spook. Tom is runnin [...]

    19. Tom Ward and the John Gregory, the Spook, are back after Grimalkin: The Witch Assassin, trying to repair the damage to their house while making sure the Fiend's head stays hidden so he can't come back and give them trouble. Tom finds out that he is essential to doing away with the Fiend permanently; it will just take getting possession of three powerful knives, one of which Alice must retrieve from the dark. The problem? Tom will then be required to sacrifice Alice with the very knife she brings [...]

    20. Joseph Delaney's Spook's books never disappoint so I always look forward to the latest installment. He's been spoiling us over 2010 and 2011 giving us two installments a year in place of the usual one as its been for the first seven volumes. Book 11 is due out early October.There's been an ongoing thread in these books from the start but more notably in the last three or four books. This most recent volume however deals with some of the major plot line and then sidesteps it to bring us a b-story [...]

    21. Despite insistence that this is the final book, it is not. Probably the penultimate one judging by the way it ends.In this one Tom and the Spook head to pick up some books to start a new library after the old one was burnt down. However, it turns out it's all a trick by Romanian witches who are trying to summon the vampire god. It's up to Tom to save the Spook and defeat the vampire god, though he has Alice, Grimalkin and a newly introduced Spook called Judd to help.It's dramatic and unpredicta [...]

    22. After not finishing the previous book in the series (which was written from Grimalkin, the witch assassin's point of view) my faith is restored after reading this. The story is back to Tom Ward's point of view as we travel with him to defeat the dark. I was a little worried to begin with because it was a bit slow, but soon things picked up and the spooky things began. It was weird when I found out the evil servants of the dark in this book were called Strigoi & Strigoica (they are Romanian v [...]

    23. Ahhhh Joseph Delaney you can do no wrong in my eyes!!. This was another gem in the Spook's Apprentice series , and just as good as all previous books. It is getting nearer to the end ,and you can sense the end coming while reading the book.There are a few twists in this story that had me reaching for the tissues ,but I loved them all. This time there are Witches and a vampire god Siscoi causing Thomas no end of problems so he is going to need all his old friends like the Spook,Alice, Grimalkin,a [...]

    24. I don't know I wasnt feeling the excitment to much with this one. All the characters I enjoyed seemed to have lost their spark. I really lost it when I thought that the spook had been killed, but then we saved him and he was just a shell. Yeah, I get that he is old and that Tom is growing up to be the spook but I it is sad that it went the way it did. Alice, I will always love, Alice But she is hardly in the book any more and the little she is, she is being wierd. I feel sad that she and Tom are [...]

    25. Chapter I: Time to RebuildYou wouldn't send Tom off on his own if you didn't think he could handle it, eh, Spooky? Hah! That's a laugh. The plot of each story begins by separating Tom from the Spook. That's the whole idea. We don't see the ACTUAL training. We see the epic battles, and the results of that training. Ah, but in any case, Tom is going on an adventure with Alice--hurraaaaaaaay! Also, I can't wait to find out why there is a picture of the boggart on the back cover Chapter II: Sacred [...]

    26. This book deserves 4 stars, same as the very first book of the series.---The book starts slowly.The Spook is rebuilding his house at Chipenden and wants to replace his lost library, so when a message arrives from Todmorden (a little border town split by a river) offering him the chance to buy some books about the dark, he wants to go as soon as possible, but first Tom and Alice travels to Malkin Tower to talk with the remaining lamia witch and learn more about the ritual that can finally get rid [...]
