Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The eleventh volume in the spine-tingling, best-selling Last Apprentice series. In Slither, Joseph Delaney takes us far from the County, to a land where a spook has never set foot and terrifying creatures of the dark thrive. Slither is one of these monsters, and Book Eleven is his story.

Slither has never heard of Tom Ward, or the Spook, or Alice Deane. He thirsts for blood. He takes it from whatever he wants, animal or human. And he has his eye set on the home of a farmer and his three daughters. With his dying breath, the farmer offers Slither a bargain: if Slither will take his two youngest daughters to safety, the eldest daughter is his. A journey of horrors begins . . . and along the way Slither meets the fearsome witch Grimalkin, who is still searching for a way to destroy the Fiend for good.

The eleventh volume in the series that inspired the major motion picture Seventh Son, starring Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore, and Ben Barnes.

Synopsis:

"My name is Slither, and before my tale is finished you'll find out why."

The dark is full of terrifying creatures. And Tom Ward—the seventh son of a seventh son, and the Spook's last apprentice—hasn't seen all of them. Far from the county, one named Slither has lived for hundreds of years, hunting blood.

But a dying father binds the monster to a bargain. If Slither will take his two youngest daughters safely to their family in the south, then the eldest daughter, Nessa, is his.

For Nessa the nightmare is just beginning. And when Slither and Nessa cross paths with the feared witch assassin Grimalkin, they will become unwitting players in the quest to stop the Fiend once and for all.

The blood-curdling eleventh volume of the Last Apprentice series.
