ALLEN PARK LIBRARY, MI, USA - reviewed by Karen M Smith


Grubbs Grady is your typical teenage boy.  He loves garbage dumps where he finds the most awesomely disgusting things and dislikes his older sister who constantly gets him into trouble.  He likes to write and play practical jokes. All in all Grubbs had a pretty decent life. Sadly, that life is shattered when he witnesses his parents’ and sister’s murders at the hands of demons. Now Grubbs must convince his doctors that he is not crazy and fight the demons that he believes are real.

Darren Shan, author of the very popular Cirque du Freak series, has created a new wonderfully horrible series that teenage boys will truly appreciate.  Not only is the story filled with demons and magic, it also deals with the loss of loved ones, creating a new family, and making new friends. The story moves quickly, taking the reader on a rollercoaster ride of twists and turns and leaving them breathless at the end. Fans of horror novels will indulge in this frightening new series and reluctant readers may find that they are not so “reluctant” after all.
