INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY - reviewed by ???

 
This is Darren Shan's fifth book in his series of 10, "The Demonata", and, as always, he's a joy to read. Though not as good as the pre­vious four, this still has plenty of action, once it gets going. Grubbs Grady is settling down to live as a normal teenager, with his uncle Dervish. He gets a girlfriend and makes a new best friend. He goes to parties and lives the normal life of a teenager. This part of the book is pretty boring compared with the rest of the book, so keep reading. It all goes down-hill when he starts getting the symptoms of
the family curse - turning into a werewolf. He tries to keep this from his friends and his half brother, but it soon gets suspicious. The question is, where are the demons? This isn't as exciting as Shan's other books, but he continues to impress.
