The Spook's Blood by Joseph Delaney

The Spook series of books (also known as the Wardstone Chronicles) tells the story of Tom Ward, a seventh son, who becomes a Spook’s Apprentice, fighting supernatural evil in the County. There is a great website for the Spook Series, where you can have a look at the trailer for the movie based on the series, “Seventh Son”, which is due out in 2015.

“The Spook’s Blood” is a book packed of action, suspense and bravery. In a world full of darkness, misery and despair there is only one boy who can stop this from happening and his name is Tom Ward. Tom lives and works as a spook’s apprentice in the countryside with his master. Together they save the county from any trouble. Suddenly they are informed that trouble is being caused in another county. His master gets kidnapped and Tom must try and save him and the county from chaos. Tom finds out secrets about his past and his destiny. 
This is the 10th book from the Spooks series and it is the one that I enjoyed the most. A very thrilling book and a must read!! 

The Maze Runner by James Dashner

The Maze Runner (2014) PosterYet again, Hollywood has looked to the world of books for movie ideas. The latest release is "The Maze Runner" based on the book by James Dashner. So what's it about? You can see the trailer here or, better still, read the book: 

"The Maze Runner" is about a boy called Thomas who is sent into a virtual world called the Glade with his memory washed; all he can remember is his name, Thomas. When the doors open in the lift which he is in after he has woken up, he is welcomed by a large group of children who have been dropped into the Glade one at a time every month. He is in a large, open area surrounded by stone walls. Just like Thomas, the Gladers don’t know why or how they got to the Glade. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze that surrounds them have opened. Every night they’re closed tight...and every 30 days a new boy has been delivered in the lift. They knew that Thomas was coming. But the next day, a girl is sent up who is the first girl to ever to be dropped into the maze in the Glade. To their even bigger surprise there is a bigger wonder in the message she brings. Thomas might be more important than he could ever guess. If only he could unlock the dark secrets buried within his mind...I read this book about 6 months ago and I was stunned. People should read this book because you can never predict where it is going to go and it is always leaving you in suspense.
