Questions & Answers


Question:

Just saw the in my opinion very beautiful cover for the upcoming "The Dark Assassin" and wanted to say that I approve of it very much (after I found the one for the first book, "A new darkness" a bit lacklustre) - this here is very beautiful! I do understand the character on the cover is Grimalkin, right (I see the scissors... ;-))?

I hope the nice little black inside illustrations (of the softcover version when it comes out) will also be back again as I missed them very much in the second book "The dark army". Not that they would be so essential but they always added quite some flavour, feeling and atmosphere to the stories.

Quite curious of what you are about to do with Grimalkin: Will you make her "a wanderer between worlds"? That could be interesting. At daylight things would have to be solved without G. if she only can be there in the nights.

The big question remains: What are you planning for the "Spook-Universe" in 2018?

Question:

Dear Mr Delaney,

Firstly, I wanted to express my undying love for the series and admit that it was a shame to hear that the Dark Assassin could possibly be the last book of the Starblade Chronicles. Nevertheless, my question to you is this: you mentioned in your blog that both Tom and Alice would make an appearance in the book after the Dark Assassin, would that suggest that neither of them die in the Dark Assassin?

Question:

Do you ever feel restricted while writing for a young audience? A lot of the content is terrifying, have you ever had to cut anything out for the younger audience??

Question:

Hello,Mr.Delaney.I would ask you about Tom and Alice.So,will they are together? I read The Spook's revenge and i was really sad what John Gregory died ,Alice joined the darkness and she left Tom.I didn't read The Dark army book because there is not russian translate and its hard to read for me.
P.s.Sorry for grammatical mistakes if there is some :)

Question:

Hi Mr.Delaney.Firstly Í just wanted to say that I have read all of the wardstone chronicles and some of your stand alone novels based in the spooks universe and I enjoyed them immensely. I have just finished The Dark Army and I was wondering once the StarBlade trilogy is completed can a stand alone novel told from the perspective of Grimalkin regarding her escapades with Thorne in the dark be expected and will there be a book told from the perspective of a fully fledged Jenny Calder as an accomplished County spook fulfilling her duties as (possibly) the Chipenden spook?

Question:

Dear Mr Delaney,

I am a huge fan of your series spooks. I just finished the 'Wardstone Chronicles' early this morning and can't wait for the next book. I am currently 13 years of age and am living in the Eastern suburbs of Victoria, Australia.
My question, not really related to your series, but what are the chances of you visiting Australia in the next few years? Especially here in Melbourne, I'd love to meet you :)
