COURIER PRESS - reviewed by Jessica Massey

This is the fourth book in Shan's Demonata series, which follows several main characters who all live in different places and times. This title is set in pre-Christian Ireland, far removed from the previous books.

Bec is the adolescent apprentice to a priestess in a small village cut off from the rest of the country by nightly demon attacks.

After a particularly bloody attack, Bec joins a band of warriors who journey out of the city to find allies and possibly a way to stop the attacks. On the way, the company learns how the Demonata are entering this world.

This series is enthralling, grotesque and surprisingly sophisticated for a young-adult series and will more than satisfy seasoned horror fans and history buffs alike.
