We learn much about her life and we also discover that she once had an apprentice assassin, and this made for fascinating reading. I Am Grimalkin is a brilliant, and very strong, addition to the series.
Blood and Steel, Throne of the Caesars by Harry Sidebottom | | Booktopia
And it is not the simple spin-off that I, and I'm sure many others, may have expected, but a vital continuation to the ongoing story of the light's fight against the dark. As exciting and compelling as ever, the story of Grimalkin will thrill and chill in equal measure.
Highly recommended. But there was a shock in store for me at the end of the book. Are you sad to be leaving them behind? I will be sad when the series comes to an end because it has been so much a part of my life for the last ten years. However, I always look towards the future and it would be great to have a completely different new series perhaps in another genre, such as science fantasy. I do find it hard to accept that there will never be another book set in the world of the Wardstone Chronicles because much still remains to be explored.
It is sad to her that the Chronicles is drawing to an end as I had hoped to read about Tom once he became the spook himself, after John Gregory has hung up his cloak and staff. Well, nobody told me! So things are really coming to a head now and we must prepare ourselves for the final battle. It is sad to hear that the Chronicles are drawing to an end as I had hoped to read about Tom once he became the spook himself, after John Gregory has hung up his cloak and staff.

Thank you. I am Grimalkin has to be the most fascinating book you'll ever read. I loved the book from the first page to the last. It's really interesting and for the people who love gruesome, weird and wacky things. It's all a about a witch assassin named Grimalkin and she has made it her lifetime ambition the destroy the Fiend avenge the brutal murder of her son. It's the same old story, a girl meets a guy when Grimalkin met the Fiend he is in human form and has a warm smile on his face but when she discovers he is actually the Fiend makes a plan the only way a witch can get rid of the fiend forever is to have his child but there was a risk most of the children of the are mutated monsters but Grimalkin's baby is a beautiful baby boy.

August Don't know couldn't get past the horrible dragging out of the last syllable, especially anything that ended in the letter R. So, on the constructive side - send the Narrator to speech therapy? How could the performance have been better? What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment? Any additional comments?
Honestly the first book i ever tried to return. I loved this book it has a good mix of adult entertainment, not one of those books who tires into a teen love story halfway through. Why doesn't audible have the sequels up yet? What disappointed you about Blood and Steel? I'm sorry to have to rate the content as average because for all I know it's an excellent story.
Unfortunately I'm forced to rate it. I was simply unable to suffer past the auricular dissonance of the first chapter. I feel bad for authors who get stuck with simply awful narration. It's not just that bad narration can hurt a good book; sometimes it can render it inaudible. Would you recommend Blood and Steel to your friends? Why or why not? Maybe in Kindle format. It wasn't just the heavy nasal inflection that made this narration so irritating. Babinski has this annoying tendency of drawing out the final consonant of certain words seemingly at random.
Is there really such a dearth of decent narrators that publishers have to hire Mr. And is Sesame Street ok with their characters moonlighting?
To put it frankly while the story is a great one the narrator sounds like he's reading out of a textbook, he sounds like one of those teachers who has no passion or respect for their subject. Granted it could simply be because I've gotten spoiled by the narrators for the Adventurers Wanted, the Sanctuary Series, along with the narrator for Kingslayer It's definitely one of the better books i have listened to this year. What other book might you compare Blood and Steel to and why?
It is quite unique in some ways but it has the same feel as those books. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes Epic Fantasy stories and i hope they release the rest of this series soon. By: Martin Parece. Narrated by: Andy Babinski.
