So...I was looking back at the books I'd read this year and to my surprise there was no review for this book. So of course I have to put this little snippet in here. This is the ninth book in the series and:
a) The witch assassin Grimalkin uses her dark magic a few times
b) She faces a foe she can't defeat despite all her incredible skill
c) She has some kind of an assassin apprentice
d) She teams up with the Spook and Tom to set a trap for The Fiend (yup they physically set up a trap for the devil himself)
Which all leads to the question: is this really a young adult book? Or is this an adult book targeted at younger people?
Either way it's great entertaining reading with lots of mythological creatures, deaths and three dimensional magical characters.
