Move over Saga of Darren Shan and The Demonata. Make way for The Thin Executioner! In his newest book for older teen readers, popular author Darren Shan brings us the story of skinny Jebel Rum, son of the royal executioner. As his father’s retirement approaches, Jebel longs to take over the pretigious role himself. But he holds no hope that his puny body can best those who are stronger. So, he sets out on a quest to prove himself. In true Darren Shan fashion, his quest is full of heart-pounding action, terrifying monsters, and unimaginable powers.
