I really enjoy this series! It is a thrilling and awesome book. I could write a review on all of the books in this series but i will talk about all of them on this review. It is mostly about the Grubbs family curse, and Lord Loss (a demon master). The mages and diciples have to cross over to the demon universe and keep the demons from crossing to our world. Grubbs is finding that he has alot of magical powers in his world where he should have powers if he was just a mage. But he hides his powers from Derivish and the diciples. In this book there is many twists and thrilling turns! If you like the Cirque du Freak series you need to read this book!

Ive read almost all of Darren Shans work and Ive loved most of it. Reading Lord Loss and Demon Thief in the matter of a day, then moving to Cirque de Freak. But I gotta say...When Blood Beast came out, I was dissapointed. Usually Darren's books are fast, rivoting, and full of twists. Blood Beast was slow to begin with. Yes, it picked up towards the end, but in the middle I found I had to take breaks and read something else for entertainment. I give it a 4 because it's gory, the characters are real, and it's plenty suspenseful. Good job, but better luck next time.

There is really a lot of blood in this book. The main character,Grubbs Grady, is a teenager who tries to fight the family curse of turning into a werewolf after losing his parents and sister to it. In his nightmares, and everywhere he turns he sees blood. Terrible things happen. Kids seem to like that a lot. At the same time, Grubbs has an astonishingly strong sense of morality and what's right. His close bonds to his uncle Dervish and to his half-brother Bill-E are also a testament to an undelying theme of there being solid ground on which one can stand and the importance of family. The novel also points to the necessity of learning who to turst and then trusting them completely.

Grubs Grady is turning. He is turning into the very beast that got his parents and sister killed. With the help of his brother and his uncle Grubbs must fight off demons and the urge to change into a beast. This book was a little choppy but it was still good.

It feels like the Demonata series is getting better and better. Shan still struggles to deliver realistic inner-dialogue but the gory-demon scenes in this one did actually turn my stomach a little bit.

Wow is this one crazy, it seems like that with every book thus far. No wonder the characters have issues. But you like them all the more for it, flawed and not perfect you know? Anyway, this one has Grubbs and friends going to look for treasure in a cave. And let's just say that might not been a good idea. A series of unfortunate events indeed.
