Good book, just a set up for a sequel however.By holdmanateeI didn't think this story quite fit in with "The Last Apprentice" series. It was a good book, and it was interesting being able to see the world in Grimalkins eyes. I understood later on though that this book is more of a set up for the follow up to this series, "The Starblade Chronicles". I have enjoyed all the content i have read from Joseph Delaney so far,


but the story definitely COULD have done without this book and ended with the closing of this series.0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. Not sure how this book fits into the series -- will wait until I finish the 13th bookBy Phillip Tomasso IIIThis is the first book in the series (11) that I have given 4, instead of 5, Stars. Don't question the drop too much. It is explained at the end. The book is well written. The story is tight. I am reserving the right to come back and change the star-age once I see how the next 2 (the last 2) books in the series finish.Slither is more of a stand-alone novel. It introduces a new character, Slither. And it is only a bit more than halfway through when you see any Last Apprentice connections. Which is fine.Slither is a High Kobalos Mage with a tail, and Shakamure magic skills. (Don't worry. the back of the book has six or ten page dictionary for the words used in this one). He feeds on blood for physical and magical strength. When the father of three daughters dies, Slither is left responsible for their well-being. The deal made back when the oldest was born was that Nessa, the oldest, he could keep. The two younger daughters, Susan and Bryory, he promised to deliver safely to family in another county.When they are attacked trekking across the county, Slither defends the young women by killing other beings and an assassin that--if found out, would have him on the run and looking over his shoulder for the rest of his life. If he doesn't make right the killing committed, they will not stop hunting him down until they catch and end his life.With a Valkarky trial looming, and a Star Stone falling from the sky, Slither is faced with endless challenges. He must find a way to win the trial, and rescue the daughters (deliver them to family), and return taken items to an unlikely ally.Again -- I was not thrilled to meet a new character 3 books from the end. It is possible that Slither will become an essential in the final two books. If not -- then, I am curious to see how Delaney ties the randomness of this story in to the others. Slither is well written, exciting, and I enjoyed it immensely. It was told in two different points of view. And sometimes it took a page or two to realize who was telling that particular chapter. That, I did not care for. I have seen it done much smoother by other authors. (For the POV change, and the random character story, I had to deduct a star from the ratings). I have the 12th book (I AM ALICE) in the 13 book series ready to go. It looks like another stand alone. At LEAST this one is about Alice. We all love Alice, don't we.Phillip TomassoAuthor of Vaccination and Damn the Dead2 of 2 people found the following review helpful. 4.5 stars; new characters but a very good story anywayBy Karissa EckertThis is the eleventh book in The Last Apprentice series. The twelfth book will be titled, I am Alice, and is scheduled for a September 2013 release. This book was a good read and engaging, but did not feature the normal characters in the series.This book diverts from our normal group of characters, to a different part of the world far from Tom Ward's country. The story is told from Sliter's point of view. Slither is a dark mage that makes a deal with a farmer in his region. When the farmer dies he promises Slither his eldest daughter, Nessa, as a slave if only Slither will see Nessa's two younger sisters to their aunt and uncle. When Slither gets on the bad side of another dark mage all of their lives are in danger. Although things take turn for the better when the strange witch named Grimalkin pops into the story.This book is written in the same dank and dark tone as all of the previous books. Slither is not really a good character at all, but he is an honorable one. Sure he eats human blood to survive, but when he makes a promise to Nessa's dad he is bound to keep it. He is not kind, he is not caring, but he honors his bargains.Parts of the book are also told from Nessa's point of view. Nessa is a surprisingly resilient character; I loved her bravery in the face of things more horrible than she has ever before faced. I loved how she did her best to shelter her younger sisters as well. She is one tough cookie and an excellent heroine to add to the series.Slither's world is a dangerous and interesting one. It's bound by rules that are followed strictly but it is a vicious world. I enjoyed reading and learning about the world outside of the one we normally read about.Grimalkin does enter the book for the last third or so of the story. As normal Grimalkin is my absolute favorite character in this series. Like normal she is neither good nor bad. Here we see some of what she has gone through and continues to go through in an effort to destroy the Fiend's head. She was awesome and the collaborations between her and Nessa were interesting and made me wonder what the future holds for Nessa.While I wasn't totally thrilled to have the resolution to this series delayed by this diversion, I have to admit this book was well done and very entertaining. It is formated like previous books with creepy pictures opening each chapter. The book is creepy and dark and a bit scary, but never terrifying.Overall I really enjoyed this addition to the Last Apprentice series. It was fun to get a look at a different part of the world this series takes place in. Slither was an interesting evil but honorable type of character. Nessa was a surprisingly engaging heroine as well. The parts with Grimlakin were wonderful and it was interesting to see what else she has done on her travels. The book was well paced and incredibly engaging. I really love this series. I can't wait to read I Am Alice and then see how things wrap up in the 13th book of this series! This series is highly recommended to fans of middle grade/young adult horror/fantasy. 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 where terrifying creatures of the dark thrive. Slither is one of these monsters, and Book 11 is his tale.Slither has never heard of Tom Ward, the Spook, or Alice Deane. He thirsts for blood. He takes it from whatever he wants, animal or human. And he has his eyes 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 will meet
