The Last Apprentice: The Spook's Bestiary: The Guide to Creatures of the Dark
How to deal with the dark
1. Conquer your fear.
2. Clear your mind, so that dark magic cannot take hold.
3. Fill your pockets with salt and iron, and always carry a rowan staff with a silver blade.
4. Never forget your silver chain for binding a witch.
5. A spooks best weapons against the dark are common sense, courage, and the skills and knowledge he learns as an apprentice.
The Spooks Bestiary is the complete guide to becoming a spook. Learn how to battle the dark, the demons, the witches, and all the things that go bump in the night. Lavishly illustrated and told in the Spooks own voice, this is a companion to the best-selling Last Apprentice series.
