"I'm coming for you, and nothing living or dead can stop me."

One witch is the most feared, the most ruthless, and the most deadly of all the witches in the county. If she hunts for you, she will find you. If you have crossed her, you don't stand a chance. She is the witch assassin, and her name is Grimalkin.

Grimalkin's one alliance is with Tom Ward, the Spook's apprentice. With Tom, she plans to rid the world of the most terrifying evil, the Fiend, who once did her great wrong.

For the first time, fans of the Last Apprentice series will hear the story from Grimalkin's side, as she is hunted herself by creatures of darkness set on revenge.

Grimalkin has never been defeated. But can she survive an enemy created for the sole purpose of destroying her?

Quotes & Awards

  • “The characters jump off the page and feel real, especially in the fighting scenes as emotion conquers logic. The added element of the reincarnated creates an eerie tone while the action-packed pace and unpredictable sequences pull the reader in and out of reality.”

    Children’s Literature

  • “This foray into the life of a new character works well, giving Delaney the opportunity to shape his elegant—and frightening—writing for a female character starring in her own story. Grimalkin, a brutal, often cruel fighting machine, nevertheless can display emotion, especially when it comes to her own apprentice, Thorne. As in the other action-filled books, horrendous, slimy, rotting, dripping moments don’t stop, but also, as in the rest of the series, there is heart here as well as meat. (The metaphorical kind. The other would just be torn apart and devoured.)”


  • “The narration and short, free-verse poems at the beginning of each chapter give a complex look into Grimalkin’s peculiar thought processes, and her history is unveiled through the personal stories her protégé enjoys hearing time and again. While her voice differs greatly from the familiar Tom’s, the closer look makes her all the more intriguing. A good balance between dark action and emotional costs.”
