Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kelly Grebinoski
Any novel that starts out with such immediate action as "My eyes! My eyes stabbed out my eyes!" must be full of page-turning adventure. Right from the start you are hooked in this third installment of the "Demonata" series. This book comes from the bestselling "Cirque du Freak" series author, Darren Shan. When the initial action settles, and Dervis, Grubbs' uncle, realizes that Lord Loss did not, in fact, take over his eyes or body, readers are faced with a strong warning telling them not to trust fairy tales, happy endings, and stories that go on as long as they are breathing. Things seem almost back to normal, when film producer "Diva" asks Dervis to be a consultant on his new movie. Not wanting to turn down the acclaimed horror film producer, he decides to help. The big scene is set on Slawter Street. In for a few surprises, Dervis finds that the demons he feared have taken over again. Will he be able to convince others of what he knows about Lord Loss? Will he be able to remedy the situation before people start to disappear? Or, by some freakish chance, is it all in his head? Find out in this powerfully well-written novel. The language and characterization will envelop the reader.
VOYA - Erin Kilby
Grubbs Grady returns with a vengeance in the third book of the Demonata series, but this time his role shifts from petrified orphan to supernatural guardian. Uncle Dervish, plagued by Lord Loss's minions, relies on Grubbs for his sanity. And Billy E. Spleen's possible fate as lab rat for the Lambs is altered only when Grubbs convinces Dervish to accept an exciting gig as advisor to horror-film director Davida Haym. The trio take up residence in Slawter-combination movie set and functioning town-where Haym plans to stage an assault of faux demons more massive than any seen this side of hell. Actors begin to disappear before his eyes, and Grubbs realizes the truth about the "faux" demons. Yet despite his best efforts and strange new magical abilities, Grubbs cannot convince the residents of Slawter that these demons are real and that they plan to annihilate all of humanity. Dim the lights for this bloodcurdling yarn but do not pop the popcorn just yet-this installment of the Demonata series is sure to make the stomach heave. Shan gives masters like Poe and King a run for their money with unexpected plot twists and vile descriptions that surpass the gross and rival the grisly. Shan also emphasizes a new theme in his subtle fashion-that first impressions should sometimes be ignored-along with his tried-and-true favorites of family loyalty and trust. Best of all, Grubbs plays center stage yet again.

    Good series!

    I starting reading this after my mentee told me that she was reading the series. I love horror novels, so this book was a good fit for my genre. The text is easy to read, the story is engaging, and you won't want to put it down! I have read the first three so far and intend to finish the series.

    Good but not best of series

    Pretty good story I would say but by far not as good as the first 2 of the series. I was glad to see Grubbs coming into his own and his powers getting stronger than either he or Dervish thought/think they would. Pretty predictable conclusion. Book leaves you with a couple of question s that hopefully get answered in the upcoming books. Hope this helps. Off to read BEC. Would recommend the series regardless!!

    Darren Shan writes the most unforgettable books.

    Grubbs Grady was normal-except for 1 thing-he knew about demons. And David A.Haym was making a movie called Slawter -about demons!!!!!!The only thing was the people in the movie were really dying in their death scenes.Or at least dissapearing. It turns out Davida Haym made a deal-with real demons!!!!!!!!That's why Emmet Eijht never came back after the demon burst out of the manhole,grabbed him, ripped him apart,and blood sprayed everywhere. After that, I was shaking, and shivering,and telling everyone that one of my favorite characters just got murdered by a demon. Unstead of saying "That's what I call a death scene",I'd say "That's what I call gripping!" Davida Haym opens a tunnel to let the demons in, and Grubbs opened the shield to let the humans out. Then the tunnel closes and everyone inside is slaughtered.Afterwards,Grubbs, Dervish, and Bill-E to burn the set to the ground so they could say there was a gas leak. Lights...camera...SLAWTER!!!!!!!!!!

    Lights! Camera! Slawter!

    Do you believe in demons? If you don¿t, start believing, because demons are real. Grubbs Grady and his uncle, Dervish, have been offered to come on the set of David A. Hayms latest horrifying thriller movie, Slawter. David wants Dervish to help her in her research about demons because she knows he is an expert on them. Dervish, still recovering from his latest encounter with Lord Loss, a demon master who had tortured Dervish, is wary of joining a movie with demons even if they aren¿t real. Dervish decides to take the offer and takes Grubbs and Bill-e Spleen, who is a friend of Grubbs. It seemed great for Grubbs and Bill-e. They made a new friend name Emmet, who is staring in the movie, they get to do virtually whatever they want, and get to eat like kings. The pair becomes good friends with Emmet. Emmet is excited about his death scene. When the scene takes place, Emmet is dragged into the sewer by a ferocious demon. Everyone cries out in shock and Grubbs is in shock. He feels unbalanced and tells himself it wasn¿t a real demon. But deep down, Grubbs knows he is wrong. This book is the third in the series of The Demonata. This book could probably be read without reading the first two, but you would be missing out on some knowledge and events. If you¿re a horror lover, than this book is right for you. This book is the second series from Darren Shan which his first is absolutely spectacular. If you¿ve read the previous Cirque Du Freak books, then Darren Shan won¿t disappoint you with his new series. In the book, Slawter, I loved those really tense moments when a chill ran up your spine. If there was anything I didn¿t like, it would be how the books jump from one character to the next as you go on in the series. It doesn¿t matter if you¿re a boy or a girl, if you like horror, then this book is a good book to read. As David A. Haym would say, ¿Lights! Camera! Slawter!¿

    Slawter (The Demonata Series #3)

    Continues after book 1 Lord Loss when they fought with the title character. The gang of hunters are now investigating the goings on at a movie set that they believe might be something sinister lurking behind the curtain. This was was pretty good and kept with the suspense and not revealing anything too early.

    continues with where Lord Loss left off where we find the returnees coping after the fight between the demon master and are now investigating a movie in progress called slawter directing by a movie director who wants to make it as real as possible plus the movie's about demons. They then make sure that's nothing out of the ordinary but at the end doubts rise while at the same time betrayals are known with a new revelation revealed in a to be continued ending...almost.

    Good Book

    I somehow got a hold of this copy in my public library, when it wasn't suppose be even released yet. But, this was a good book. Filled with gore, violence, and action as usual. I am bit confused, because the second book is a about a different kid and the third book is continuing the story with grubb...

    Oops in the last review for the second book, got the wrong name. I meant Kernal not Dervish. Been a while since I read the series. Anyway, with this one we're back with Grubbs as he and co go to a movie set when they hear something about the director making a movie with demons, real or not. Very good sequel and one of my favorites.

    Darren Shan is at the top of his form in his latest masterpiece of gruesome demons and terror. This third book in the DEMONATA series picks up where THE DEMON THIEF left us. Dervish is almost back to normal. Grubitsch Grady, better known as Grubbs, and his half-brother, Bill-E, are trying to live a normal life without demons. A group called The Lambs want to take Bill-E to their lab and observe and test him to see if he is really cured of lycanthropy. Uncle Dervish and Grubbs are certainly not going to allow that. Then Dervish is approached by acclaimed horror movie producer, David A. Haym, or "Davida," who wants Dervish to be a consultant on her new film. She has resurrected a ghost town and renamed it Slawter. Her masterpiece will have a demon theme, and Dervish, of course, is a demon expert. <BR/><BR/>The demons that romp through SLAWTER seem all too real to Grubbs and he begins to wonder whether more than filming is afoot when strange happenings disrupt the set and the filming. He can't seem to convince Uncle Dervish that real demons are on the loose, and are not just ingenious costumes. People begin to disappear. Is Lord Loss back in business? <BR/><BR/>Darren Shan broke new ground with his bestselling CIRQUE DU FREAK series, and now his DEMONATA series promises to be as great a hit with the kids. Shan is a master at characterization and plotting, and the fear factor raises your goose-bumps to a new height. I would not recommend this series for children ages ten and under, but for older kids that love scary stories with lots of gruesome gore, this book fits that category. The reluctant readers will love this exciting, horrific story.

    A Bloody Mystery

    This is one of the best books I have ever read and probably will read. I could hardly put it down when I was reading it. I loved it so much that I finished it in about one and a half weeks which is fast for me. The book starts out with Dervish having nightmares which he¿s been having ever since he returned from battling with Lord Loss. Grubbs wakes him every time these nightmares come, and usually gets hit or kicked. They lock up all the dangerous weapons so he can¿t take one and kill Grubbs. One regular day Dervish got a telephone call from a famous movie writer Davida Haym. She asks Dervish to help with her new movie ¿Slawter¿. ¿Slawter¿ was about a group of demons wrecking havoc on an unsuspecting town. Dervish helped by telling Davida if the costumes looked right or if they needed changing. Soon, they go to the movie set and get acquainted with everyone there. In the first filmed scene, one of Grubbs¿ and Bill-E¿s friends died. Bill-E is Grubbs¿ brother except Bill-E doesn¿t know it. Later when the next scene is filmed Lord Loss shows up. Grubbs is the only one who thinks the demons are real. Soon he proves they are real, and Grubbs, Dervish, Bill-E, and Juni must fight for there lives and the people still alive in Slawter. I like a lot of things about this book. I liked how he told the story. The author Wrote one book then wrote another book with a different story, but same idea, and came back from the first book in the third book. I didn¿t really hate anything about the book except the end which leaves you hanging. I think that you do need to read other books because it goes back to previous books. This book reminds me of the movie ¿Constantine¿ because in the movie the main character has to fight demons. I would recommend this book to people who like reading about demons or if they like reading books by Darren Shan. This is the third book in the series. The other books are ¿Lord Loss¿ and ¿Demon Thief¿.
