The Spook

I'm now going to review the next FOUR books in the series: The spook's Battle, Mistake, Sacrifice, and Nightmare. This is the part in the series where everything starts going downhill for the characters, Tom, the Spook, and Alice. In the spook's battle, they go to Pendle, a witch country, to try and stop the witch clans from uniting. Mab, who rules the Mouldheel clan, begins to like Tom, though she soon finds out that Alice has marked him as her own first. In the Spook's Mistake, Tom is sent to Bill Arkwight, one of the spook's previous apprentices, to learn how to fight water creatures, to swim, and to fight in general. He gets into trouble when he angers Morwena, a water witch who can transfix those who look into her red eye, and who is also one of the Fiend's daughters. In the Spook's Sacrifice, the three of them, along with Bill Arkwight, and a large group of witches who follow Tom's Mam, travel to Greece to fight the Ordeen, Tom's Mam's ancient enemy. In the Spook's Nightmare, Tom, The Spook and Alice travel away from Chipenden, to an island away from the war, but they are quickly accused of witchcraft by the shaman, and, to make matters worse, Bony Lizzie has escaped from the spook's now abandoned house, and is trying to rule the island.
   I've also read Witches, which is a book set in the same world as the Wardstone chronicles, but is about witches, told not only by Tom or the spook, but also from the point of view of  witches, such as Grimalkin or Alice.

Ok, I got this game a few weeks ago, and I played through the game online co-op, and then I played alot of versus. I haven't tried scavenge mode or survival. I usually play versus, and I've found that it is alot harder to play as infected than as survivors. It requires alot more teamwork. Survivors just have to stay near each other, and shoot anything that moves. Infected don't take as long to kill as survivors, since guns do way more damage than claws. I think that the Witch should be able to do more damage, because it's annoying when someone just runs up with a spas 12 and blasts at it like crazy, and kills it. Also, sometimes you can trigger the witch as infected, sometimes you can't. I was a boomer and went off right next to a witch, and she didn't notice. Maybe she should be able to detect better, so that crowning becomes risky. Which reminds me, once I found a witch, and fired a grenade with fire upgrade. I think she disappeared, and then I was downed. Another time, in the Passing, I blew up the bride witch using two explosive cans.

I haven't posted for a while, and now I'm going to do a review of a movie, called Vexille, and tell you what I'm going to post later.
   Vexille is set in the future, where Japan has isolated itself from the rest of the world, and no-one has any idea what they are doing. The film focuses on Vexille, who is part of an elite fighting unit. They are sent to infiltrate Japan, but they are caught and almost all of the squad is killed. I'll stop talking about the story, or I'll spoil it. I think the armor that the team wears is pretty cool, and it looks a bit like the armor from the game Section 8.

   What's coming later:
  • Left 4 Dead 2
  • The Spook's Battle
  • Gifted
  • Skulduggery Pleasant
  • Grey Knights 
I'm also going to update my list of things to look out for.
