The Spook's Battle - Joseph Delaney news

Apparently, The Spook's Battle the fourth book in the Wardstone Chronicles series is out here in the UK in July - at least so are telling me today. Here's the synopsis from Amazon:

In the fourth instalment in the "Wardstone Chronicles", Mam has returned to her own land, Greece, to fight the rising power of the dark there. In a special room in the family farmhouse, she has left behind trunks and boxes only to be opened by her youngest son Tom. Meanwhile, in Pendle, the covens are rising and the three most powerful witch clans are rumoured to be uniting in order to conjure an unimaginable evil. Together, they will be capable of raising the dark made flesh - the Devil himself. Tom and the Spook will need to set off for Pendle quickly to avert the unthinkable but first Tom must journey home. Could it be that the boxes will reveal more about his mother's past? And will these powerful secrets place Tom's family in ever greater danger?

Judging by the numbers of comments I get from teens on my reviews of the earlier books, there are going to be some very happy readers this summer !
