"Completely unsanitized and totally terrifying!"
"A compelling dark fantasy...something extraordinary."
—Burbank Library Blog
“An edge-of-your-seat thrill ride through a dark world borne of our deepest fears where demons and witches fly the skies, the dead stalk the earth, and a trio of unlikely champions battle the Devil for humanity’s future. Deftly-plotted, intensely visceral, and written with a muscular style that transports the reader right into the thick of the action, this first installment in the Grimm City series had me at the first fight scene. The urgency was manifested so completely I couldn’t stop reading, nor could I turn the pages fast enough. A horror-packed, cinematic tour-de-force through an apocalyptic world imagined in thrilling detail.”
—Jo Treggiari, author of Ashes, Ashes
"A dark tale of Death, the Devil, and destiny."
—Jennifer Estep, New York Times bestselling author of the Elemental Assassin series
"A kaleidoscopic, neon masterpiece, K.W. Jeter’s and Gareth Jefferson Jones’s Death’s Apprentice is a spellbinding work of modern dark fantasy, the first entry in a new series based upon the tales and writings of the Brothers Grimm. With a surgeon’s eye for detail, as well as epic scope, Jeter and Jones have created a mesmerizing mash-up of classic folklore and post-punk horror-noir that pulses with sex, drugs, and rock and roll. Death’s Apprentice manages to both entertain and resonate on the deepest levels of Jungian dream logic – the Grimms would be delighted! A major new series as well as an irresistible hero are born. Highly recommended!"
