    Bec has never led a normal life, or was never given the chance to. Born only remembering her mother and how she passed away, Bec was saved by a village's priestess who urged the village leaders to let her live. Making her the priestess's apprentice, Bec was able to learn the magic and potions that would be used in aid of those who fought in battles. <BR/><BR/>Unfortunately for Bec, she didn't know how many battles her village would be facing. <BR/><BR/>Never a quiet night, Bec's village is continuously invaded by demons, the Fomorii, who come to tear the village apart. And every night Bec must use what she has learned, which isn't much since the priestess was killed way before she was able to pass on everything she knew. <BR/><BR/>Used to having other villagers come through, Bec's village is visited by Run Fast, a boy who says that his village is in trouble. Unsure of his story or of what side he is on, the warriors feel an obligation to help and so set off to end their fight. Usually the priestess does not go along with the warriors, but this time Bec sees fit to travel with them, hoping that this journey will help her figure out what troubles her and hopefully to become one with her surroundings and her magic. <BR/><BR/>Fighting off the demons is not an easy feat, especially since both worlds have just been connected, making it easier for the demons to enter, multiplying their numbers every time one is killed. Magic is what destroys them -- and the lives of the villagers and the warriors are in the hands of Bec. <BR/><BR/>Thrilling and different from the other novels in the series, BEC is a courageous novel that leaps off the pages and plays with our imagination. The descriptions are vivid and the story is unique. With an ending that will leave you breathless, BEC is a great addition to the already popular series, THE DEMONATA.

    Amazing...yet strange

    This one threw me off. I love Darren Shan...I mean LOVE! His books are amazing...but this book in the series threw me off a little...but if you've ever read any other Shan books you'll know it all ties together in the end...somehow.

    Bec book 4

    This is more of a prequel basically before the events of the first book. Its the title character a girl basically who with some warriors travel to stop the apocalypse of demons taking over their world with help from a mysterious druid called Drust and a strange but unpredictable boy.

    When I first read this, I either didn't like it or appreciate it

    When I first read this, I either didn't like it or appreciate it. After reading it again, I found myself liking it and appreciating it being installment in the series. This one we meet Bec and it in a way seems to be like a prequel. What I remember most about this one was one moment with a character that was just sad, creepy but sad and the ending, wow that ending. Not to mention the cover.

    Could Have been better

    This book, like the rest Of Shan's work, is an easy reader. The book took place in 400 AD and was just too early for me. The other books in the series took place around our time, but why so long ago. Like the rest of the book it was filled with blood and gore.And what happens to the main character at the end. Does she die? I would recommend this if you had read any of the other Demonata books, but to me Cirque DU FReak is actually a better series. All in all, it was ok.
