Grimalkin seems to have done much the same, and through the power of positive thinking, she formed herself into the most brutal and Instead of Tom Ward, Grimalkin narrates this installment. I mean the one about good people; I am not saying who it relates to in order to avoid spoilers.

Instead of Tom Ward, Grimalkin narrates this installment. Will she survive her greatest challenge ever or lose the head and fail her sacred duty? Grimalkin is my favorite character in the series, and I was ecstatic that one of the books featured her. The kretch scratches Grimalkin which weakens her – she learns that the kretch’s claws are imbued with poison and tries to make it back to Pendle where she can ask Agnes who is also more than adept at healing, just like she is with scrying to heal her, however she is weakened and unable to make it so she summons one of the few people she knows she can trust – Thorne, her ‘apprentice’ she has been training in secret to become the next Malkin clan assassin.

Or is this an adult book targeted at younger people? That is, if the Kretch had evolved to almost every injury possible beforehand, it could have taken down Grimalkin a lot sooner and easier. The witch assassin Grimalkin is on the run with the Fiend’s head in a sack. Once there Thorne and Grimalkin are pretty near instantly attacked and manage to drive off their enemies saving the son Will of a local knight in the process.


Grimalkin’s story picks up right where we left off with her in the last book. That aside – The whole story is pretty much Grimalkin fleeing from those who are pursuing her after the events of the last book, she’s put in a position where she has to turn and fight, she fights a bit to get to the point where she can flee again, and the pursuit begins again. She’s a great character still, but I prefer her as an enigmatic supporting character.

In this ninth book of the Last Apprentice series, Grimalkin is the narrator.

This is the ninth book in the series and hopefully it doesn’t matter that I skipped it when I go to read the next one when it comes out later this year. She is fast, super strong and she also has a code of honor and never resorts to trickery. Grimalkin’s gotta run, run, run just as fast as she can.

Retrieved 4 October Joseph Delaney used to be an English k, before becoming the best-selling author of the Spook’s series, which has been published in 24 countries and has sold over a million copies.

Delaney has a very deft touch writing description. Well, the whole book does, really. Grimalkin made an interesting secondary character, but I wasn’t interested in hearing her narration. So, I guess, if it were me, I’d be doing whatever I could to get that head back as well. I love Grimalkin, she’s so bad-ass!

I cannot wait for what comes next in this fantastic series. Hagurosan Darren Shan They’re in the tower. When Hagurosan is told to take an offering to the josdph, he reluctantly begins his trek up the mountain.

The covers of the first eight books of The Wardstone Chronicles. She believes only a weak person go’s after a person who is weaker than you. How she fantasizes about the ways to kill a man, and her long suffering at the Fiend’s whimsy.

As exciting and compelling as ever, the story of Grimalkin will thrill and chill in equal measure. I hope he at least gets to say goodbye to his father. This is actually in the stream of the current grimaloin arc and VERY relevant to what is going on after the Fiend was bound.

Thanks in no small part to the magic borrowed from Alice. Retrieved from ” https: Apr 10, Jonathan Terrington rated it really liked it Shelves: If she hunts for you, she will find you.
