Grubbs Grady, the narrator of this final instalment of the Demonata series, is at an all-time low.

Grubbs Grady, the narrator of this final instalment of the Demonata series, is at an all-time low. With Dervish dead, Kernel blinded (by Grubbs himself) and Bec at the mercy of Lord Loss, Grubbs is spending more and more time in his Werewolf form. This is partly because it helps him feel less powerless and partly because the fighting never seems to stop anymore. Wave after wave of demons are breaking through all over the globe and the world is in complete turmoil. Things go from bad to worse when Grubbs has a dream that suggests Bec has joined forces with Lord Loss to help him open a tunnel between the Demon universe and ours, using the Lodestones. Grubbs and the reluctant Kernel are set on a seemingly futile path to destroy the Lodestones before Bec can destroy the world. Has Bec really gone over to the dark side or is it all an elaborate plot? Whatever happens, it seems that there is no option to stop the demons other than the complete destruction of the Universe. A breath-taking, edge of your seat, rollercoaster ride of a book. With a long series like this there’s always the worry that the pay-off won’t live up to the investment readers put in, but Shan fans need not fear – if anyone knows how to take his characters to the very edge of destruction (and over), it’s him. A fitting finale!
