Publisher's Summary

"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 11th volume of the Last Apprentice series.

Good story, but.....

I love this series, and I enjoyed this book , but it barely tied into this series. It didn't have Thomas Ward or Alice in it at all. But, (again) I enjoyed this story, it could have easily been a stand alone book or in a series about Grimalkin. Another enjoyable character. So, my final opinion is that it is a really good story and I enjoyed it. I'm just looking forward to the next story furthering the situations with Alice and Tom. If you enjoy this series you'll know what I am talking about and if you haven't read the series, it is an interesting series, it's worth a try. I really like it.

Im a fan, but this one is the one I'll return.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I am a loyal Delaney fan, and these series are my latest addiction, but this book ruined it for me. I couldn't even get half way. And it wasn't because of the story or Christopher Evan Welch. I absolutely love Christopher Evan Welch. Great narrator. Love even his female performances.But I can't listen to Angela Goethals' performance. No offense and nothing personal. She just ruined it for me. Her performance is completely exaggerated, over dramatic and plain inappropriate for the character and theme. Is like she is reading some dramatic poetry, she tries waaaay too hard. Is just so unsettling and very hard to listen to. Her character is a young girl, and there's no way a young girl in the situation that she is, that anyone would talk like that. PLEASE, for future books, keep Christopher as the sole narrator. He does a great job and is hard to get used to a new (overdramatic and unsettling) new narrator when we are just used to him already. Everything was perfect up until they added Angela.I am returning this audiobook just because I can't take her narration. I just can't. Is ruined.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Can't say much about the story. It was alright so far. Is the performance that ruined it, and I guess I'll never know unless I read it on paper.

What aspect of Christopher Evan Welch and Angela Goethals ’s performance would you have changed?

Just take off Angela Goethals altogether. Christopher Evan Welch does a superb job alone and we are used to him.

Do you think Slither needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

I don't know. Couldn't finish it. Huge turn off by female narrator.

Any additional comments?

Please keep Christopher Evan Welch alone.
