Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“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.)” Booklist
“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.” Kirkus Reviews
