"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.

    " I think Clash of the demons is a very good book. It is one of the best books I have ever read, it was that good. This is the sixth book in a series. It is about a young man named Tom ward who is training to become a spook. A spook is a person that fights against "the dark", ( witchs and evil In the fourth book a whole bunch of witches bring the devil onto earth, and the only person that can truly defeat him is Tom. In this book Tom's mother rounds up a bunch of people to go to Greece to defeat this really powerful demon that is going to pass through a portal bringing an army with her. After a series of events it looks like its going to be all over and the de vil makes a deal with Tom and says he'll help Tom if Tom gives the devil his soul. It is a big decision for Tom. I will not tell his choice so don't spoil the story for anyone. I will be excited to see what happens next book in this series of books. "

    " This is the sixth book in The Last Apprentice series. Mam returns to the County and enlists the help of Tom, Alice, the County witches, and the Spook. The Ordeen, the most dangerous witch in the world, is about to arise from the Ord in Greece. If she is not destroyed, she and her followers will bring death and destruction to the entire world. Joseph Delaney introduces a new set of horrific, evil creatures for the forces of good to defeat. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela | 1/8/2014

    " A little more drawn out than the earlier books. The fantastic world and it's villains are widening and the end of the series and it's over-arching storyline seems to be winding up. Good and evil are becoming less clear all the time. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Zack | 1/6/2014

    " This book was okay. The dialogue is annoying at times. Why does Alice speak in fragmented sentences? I suppose it's Delaney's attempt to give each character his/her own, unique voice, but I find it distracting. I'm probably in the minority here, but I'd rather see Tom go to the dark side. I think he'd be a much more interesting character if he had an attraction to the dark, like Anakin Skywalker from Star Wars. I like Grimalkin the most because she's no friend of the light but is willing to aid the heroes when it benefits her. I hope she's in future books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samantha | 1/4/2014

    " In this Last Apprentice novel, Tom, the Spook, and several members of local witch covens find themselves on a ship bound for Greece. Tom's mother returned to the county to collect this motley crew in the hopes of banishing an evil so fierce that it could potentially destroy the world. Along the way, Tom learns the truth about who and what his mother really is and has to make decisions about how much he is willing to compromise himself as is forced more and more often to deal with "the dark." Another excellent contribution to the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brett | 1/3/2014

    " These books continue to get darker as they build to a climax, but they just grab you by the throat & don't let go. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danny | 12/24/2013

    " This book was very catchy and is a nice sequel in the Last Apprentice series. It is a page turner and was very hard to put down. I really enjoyed the suspense in this book and the secrets revealed. The end was a nice touch to the book because it was not expected. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christen | 12/11/2013

    " This series is the first one in a while that scared me on a level I used to seek out when I was young. I love the studiousness of all the dark beings. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica Wilson | 12/6/2013

    " Great scary book!!! I love to read this authors books. He must do a lot of research and put a lot of time into each of his books. Well worth the wait and I can't wait to read the next one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Connor W | 11/9/2013

    " The book was good. I recommend that you read this book. There was alot of action in this book with the characters attack the castle. There's one sad part which is Thomas has to leave his mother in the castle when it disappears. My favorite part was the ending when Thomas's mother fights the Ordeen. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynette | 10/26/2013

    " Awesome! Really love this series! It's not really horror but still is alot darker than other series and very orginal. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ami | 10/11/2013

    " Any book that you have to carry into the bathroom with you because you cannot put it down is a winner. While this book isn't my favorite in the series it is definitely worth the read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trudi | 9/16/2013

    " Didn't grab me in the first half like the others in the series, but by the end I was hooked as always. Can't wait to see what happens next. Seriously, if you have a reluctant reader in your life, child or adult, recommend this series. You will be doing them a solid! "
