this is a review of the audio CD of "Lord Loss"Darren Shan turns his attention from vampires (The Saga of Darren Shan) to werewolves and demons in his new series The Demonata. The first book, Lord Loss is about as scary as it gets and shows the great imagination of Darren Shan. Starting off with the demonic slaughter of his family, by Lord Loss and his two horrendous demon helpers, Grubs Grady somehow survives and after a stint in a mental hospital is rescued by his uncle, Dervish. Dervish is an experienced demon hunter and is the only person who believes Grubs. However all does not go smoothly as there is lycanthropy running through the family line. So when a full moon comes so does some unexpected events. I won’t say more so the twist is not given away. Suffice to say Lord Loss soons makes another appearance.This book is an edge of your seat type read and having someone the caliber of Rupert Degas read it to you makes the book even more enjoyable. He creates the most amazing voices for the characters and coupled with the eerie sound effects the book is most creepy indeed. I found myself looking forward to switching on the CD player and immersing myself in this tale of horror. I can’t wait for Book 2: Demon Thief and Book 3: Slawter. I just hope Rupert has been asked to record them as well.
