I Am Grimalkin (Spook’s / The Last Apprentice, book 9) by Joseph Delaney

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on this book, it really makes a difference and helps readers to find their perfect book. Grimalkin is one of my favorite characters in the series. We’ve found that while readers like to know what we think of a book they find additional reader reviews a massive help in deciding if it is the right book for them. Here is the reason Selaney tend to not like male authors writing female characters.

Grimalkin has made it her lifetime ambition to destroy the Fiend. The Fiend comes and kills the baby Grimalkin then makes it her lifetime ambition to destroy the fiend. Finally it will come true.

Having bound the Fiend’s spirit temporarily, Tom now has to come up with a permanent solution – and quickly. I also enjoy The Spook’s John Gregory humor and wit, which is missing from this installment as all three main characters aren’t really featured much. She is the witch assassin of the Malkin clan, and her name is no accident: The Wardstone Chronicles by Joseph Delaney.

He goes to face the kretch grialkin is mortally wounded; Grimalkin, Thorne and his men bring him back into his home but determine the wound is to his head and the best thing that can be done for him at this point is to make him comfortable until he dies.


At least for the next chapter.

What made me really like the book is that I noticed that the writing was different than in Thomas’s point of view. Arkwright lives in a haunted mill on the edge if a treac I think this is my favorite book from Spook’s Apprentice Series, ironically this is not even about Spook’s Apprentice But really I love Grimalkin and to read the book from her point of view is entertaining.

So, while they are supposed to help shape her, they also cannot help but be a pointer to her own limitations. She is strong, courageous, never looks back and doesn’t understand the quibbling about “dark and light” that the Spook worries about.

So far I’ve read ten of these books and I’ve loved them all. I got this from the library not realizing it was ninth in a series, but I’m giving it up at around 20 some-odd percent through. I can see why this is not listed as a separate book from the rest of the series. Eventually you will start to believe it. Her history is brought about through flash backs and her telling jjoseph, but for the most part, the story is told in present day.

Merciless rogues are conniving to steal the w Young Samurai Chris Bradford 9. I kinda can’t wait for the two of them to meet. It stops the main tale practically dead in tracks did you notice a very lame pun?

Not Enabled Screen Reader: The Spook and his apprentice, Thomas Ward, have travelled to Priestown to defeat the Bane, a powerful, evil creature that lurks in the catacombs of the cathedral and is cor It’s funny, now that I DO have the money, I’ve checked the book out from the library. Fantasy books by series Dark fantasy novels HarperCollins books High fantasy novels Witchcraft in written fiction. But Grimalkin’s self-confidence even if it is sometimes false got to be a bit off-putting for me.

In my opinion, the main reason for this reinvigoration was that in I Am Grimalkin the narration moved away from Thomas Ward to the enigmatic witch-assassin Grimalkin. Although Grimalkin is a dark witch, her lifetime goal is to destroy the devil himself: There isn’t a dull moment in this story.


The perfect witch assassin. She says this several times per chapter and I had an idea of using the same trick in my review, something like the following: This time we got to witness the business in all of its gory details. My sister puts post-its of simple affirmations around herself.

Trust me, you gotta love her character Beside Grimalkin’s adventure in this book I love how Delaney give us a lil bit snippet about Gr I think this is my favorite book from Spook’s Apprentice Series, ironically this is not even about Spook’s Apprentice But really I love Grimalkin and to read the book from her point of view is entertaining.

Wow really enjoyed this one was a a awesome read can’t wait to complete the rest of the series: M-am oprit dintr-un motiv destul de simplu: In the previous Last Apprentice book, Grimalkin and a Spook’s apprentice named Tom Ward, bound the Fiend in a pit with silver alloy stakes.

That is, if the Kretch had evolved to almost every injury possible beforehand, it could have taken down Grimalkin a lot sooner and easier. As I said earlier this is one of my favorite books of the series so it won’t be a surprise when I say this gets 5 out of 5 stars from me. This gnerally pattern is repeated several times through the story.
