I expected a lot from Darren Shan's 16th novel, Bec (Harper Collins £12.99), and I got a lot. This book was easily as exciting as the other three books in the Demonata series.Bec is an apprentice priestess in a village in the forest. She can remember her own birth and that her ancestors aren't of this clan. Every night, the village is attacked by demons, and every night they have to protect the women and children from being slaughtered. One night, a boy comes running to their village explaining that his village needs help. Bec decides to go, along with some other people, hoping to find out who her real clan is. They meet a druid and encounter more powerful demons. An excellent read.
