The second instalment of Joseph Delaney’s exhilarating new ARENA 13 series.
Sixteen-year-old Leif continues on his quest to find out the truth about his legendary father. Will his father’s people hold the key to Leif’s future? And will what he learns bring him closer to attaining his goal of becoming the best fighter the city has ever seen? Or will the monster that has stalked his life, wreak his promised revenge?
Joseph Delaney is a retired English teacher living in Lancashire. He has three children and seven grandchildren and is a wonderful public speaker available for conference, library and bookshop events. His home is in the middle of Boggart territory and his village has a boggart called the Hall Knocker, which was laid to rest under the step of a house near the church. Most of the places in the Spook's books are based on real places in Lancashire. And the inspiration behind the stories often comes from local ghost stories and legends.
