How will Tom ever defeat the Fiend if he continues to work with dark forces to help with victories? Is the Spook's own opinion of dark magic changing as he encounters a witch unlike any that he's ever met before? Will Alice continue to fight against the Dark and help protect Tom?
Each book is leaving me with more questions. I was shocked when we learned that Bony Lizzie was actually Alice's mother in a previous book. So I wasn't expecting them to have to sort her out in this book, she was dealt with in a previous book. However Bony Lizzie is back and her strength might be more than the Spook can handle.
Delany doesn't disappoint his readers with this suspense filled novel. I can't wait to get my hands on the next in the series.
