Beware a girl in pointy shoesThe first thing a spook's apprentice learns is never, ever to trust a witch. Those brave enough to read these pages will find out why. You'll meet a fair and beautiful woman—with green scales running down her spine. You'll encounter a dead witch who lurks under rotting leaves, hunting for blood, and a witch whose cry of revenge can kill. And you'll follow Alice, Tom Ward's best friend, back into her past, when she lived with one of the most dangerous witches of all. Are you ready to face the dark?
