    After the events of the previous book of the series the witch assassin Grimalkin yes, she is exactly as badass as it sounds like is on the run with a lot of dark forces hell bent on killing her, ironically exactly the moment she ended up on the side of good guys for the first time in her life This is basically all there is to say.I can talk about bad sides of the book non stop, so it is much easier to say what is good about it This is the first time in the series the tale is not told in Tom After the events of the previous book of the series the witch assassin Grimalkin yes, she is exactly as badass as it sounds like is on the run with a lot of dark forces hell bent on killing her, ironica...

    Excellent, excellent book While it was a bit awkward that this book is technically in a different series The Spook s Series than the main series that Delaney writes Wardstone Chronicles if you are not in the US and The Last Apprentice if you are awkward because this book actually continues the last book in the series that he wrote but from the character Grimalkin s point of view And, wow What a point of view Grimalkin has been one of my favorite characters from the moment she was introd Excellent, excellent book While it was a bit awkward that this book is technically in a different series The Spook s Series than the main series that Delaney writes Wardstone Chronicles if you are not in the US and The Last Apprentice if you are awkward because this book actually continues the last book in the series that he wrote but from the character Grimalkin s point of view And, wow What a point of view Grimalkin has been one of my favorite characters from the moment she was introduced She is just such a complete bad a__ She is strong, courageous, never looks back a...
