Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Erin Kilby
Shan's latest Demonata installment resumes where book five, Blood Beast (Little, Brown, 2007/VOYA February 2008), leaves off-soaring through the sky in a jumbo jet plagued by bloodthirsty demons. The initial appalling aeronautical carnage will rattle those with flight phobias; certainly the scenes here are Shan's most ghoulish work yet. It is the decision that Grubbs must make that lies at the beating heart of this novel, however, and as Shan readers know, when the Demonata are around hearts are often ripped out. This transitional novel is less plot- and character-development-driven than propelled by the need to answer questions and unite the action and characters of previous books. Characters like Beranabus and Kernel Fleck make more than cameo appearances, as well as Juni Swan and Bec, who are key players in the resolution. Yet from the initial chapters, the battle scenes quickly wax redundant, and the reader leaves the novel feeling a bit confused about the purpose of the Kah-Gash, and about the time lines Shan follows. In his usual non-didactic way, however, Shan forces characters to make very gritty choices, many of which are brought about by their own flawed pasts. Thus Grubbs must make the most momentous decision of his life and in doing so becomes the textbook tragic hero-one that despite the tedium in this novel, readers will want to learn more about in book seven.

My 14 yr old son has enjoyed reading this series. He usually would rather be playing sports or video games. These books have helped him learn to enjoy reading.. what more could I ask for??

I must say after book 6 that this has to be the most well written and one of the best that Darren Shan wrote so far in the Demonata series. After the cliffhanger in Blood Beast, Darren meets with Beranabus and Kernal from Demon Thief and from then on everything comes together, revelations are discovered and secrets are revealed that involves the end of the world as we know it and the return of a certain girl from a time long ago. the ending was sad but had to be done. In my review for Bec, remember how i said that the book was horrible, well you should read it once, cause there are references to that that are mentioned in this and it'll make sense if you read that. The book is very and i mean very descriptive and action packed. Grubbs is growing up and has a lot and i mean a lot to deal with than most teenagers, how much more can the poor guy take? beware that this book is pretty gorey but still awesome. so recommend this book and can't wait for the seventh installment of the Demonata series. Keep it up Darren Shan.

Wow, just... this. Action packed none the stop. By far my most favorite in the series, next to Slawter, Demon Thief, etc. Grubbs really has been through a lot hasn't he? Same with the other characters as well. Again this one was really good. And the cover makes it exciting to read.
