Lists with This Book. Dec 13, Dream. It’s hard for me when a book demoata between perspectives of dmeonata from book to book. The first book had Grubbs, the second was back in time and introducing Kernel, then the third book is back to Grubbs again – and previewing the fourth, they’re introducing a new character entirely.
The same villain is present and all these characters will tie together with the Disciples fighting the Demonata. This may be the weakest of the first demonaga.
I was pleased to return to Grubbs because I like the char It’s hard for me when a book jumps between perspectives of characters from book to book. I was pleased to return to Grubbs because I like the character, and we see him come into his own power and magic blend. The ending promises secrets for him to hold on to as he still wants to resume a normal life. With what he’s seen and the traumas he has experienced, who can really blame him?
I do think his magic seems intriguing and can’t wait to return to his story again. In this book we have good characters but the plotline is rather strange. Dare I say a little cheesy? Thankfully when I was thinking that during the read, a few chapters more and they showed some was false and less cheesy than I believed, but still It’s not a full filler book but it’s close.
It does show the importance of his developing powers, Dervish’s recuperation, and introduces more strongly the danger of the Lambs. It’s a young adult series, but there’s plenty of violence and gore. Art’s hair has been replaced from cockroaches to maggots. Lord Loss uses the snakes coming out of his chest for more than just looks this time around. It’s a little tamer in comparison with details to the horrors of the first book, and some of the twists of threat in the second, but still vicious with its villains.
These are certainly top-notch, cruel, evil demons who never know mercy. Really this book had a plot that lacked complexity on the surface, but introduced a lot of elements we need to know about later. Obviously the secret Bill-E doesn’t know yet may become a big deal later, or perhaps not.
All those chapters showing the Lambs and their purpose and tension with the Demonata could figure largely into the plot later on. Lord Loss’s hatred of Grubbs and Dervish is intensified.
We see a big development with Grubbs that will obviously change his future play potential in the big game between the demons and the humans. And we have the intro of a new character or two that may disappear forever, could stay minor and pop up time to time, or could even become big contestants later on. I will definitely read the next book to find out. Darren Shan books are full of horror, mystery and chills.
This books also delivered what was expected. Sometimes it made me cringe and sent chills down my spine. Recommended for horror fans. People who love a Massacre.
Do not read the book if you hate reading about people getting butchered, old and young alike. Here we are again.

Roughly 25 years after the events of Demon thief and 1 year after Lord Loss Those of you who haven’t read the 1st book will find the first two chapters interesting as the protagonist gives a quick recap. For others, it may seem irritating like how I felt Anyway.
Grubbs Grady is ba 4 stars for the grand Slawter! Grubbs Grady is back, the protagonist from the first book, who defeated Lord Loss. He has been babysitting Dervishhis uncle, who has yet to calm down from the shock regarding facing Lord Loss Bill-E SpleenGrubbs’ brother demonat him to take care of Dervish.
Everything goes on smoothly.
They go to school. But one fine day, Dervish recieves a contract offer from David A Hayms later Davida, oooh she’s a chic! She wants Dervish’s expertise in helping her craft demonic costumes.
Grubbs and Bill-E cannot shut up. They are like “Hey yall David A Hayms is comin’ over to demonatta place to talk buisness! And then she comes.
Davida, Oscars rolling around her house like waste, An old bitch trying to Find out new and bloodier ways to kill people in her movies. The movie she’d like to shoot is called “Slawter”Coolio namio bitchio! The theme is that in which demons massacre people In the worst ways imaginable in a village called Slaawter built from the ground up just for the flick and some funky hero’s gonna save the day.
She wants the demons to look real, so real that even the actors must wet themselves. And since Derv is a man who knows stuff about demons, she asks. He, Grubbs and Bill-E go to the village of Slawter. Free food and stuff. Freeroaming anywhere except warehouse D.
And everyone’s freakin exited the day when the first killing is shot. A boy, Emmetis supposed to be eating the flesh of some headmaster and then a demon is supposed to drag him into the manhole and kill him, blood everywhere.
Davida is too exited, she boasts Dervish says that she created demons with circuits and shit which one would not believe to be a dummy. The demon comes out of the manhole and grabs Emmet, it looks so real, it pulls him down and rips him apart, raining blood all around, and Emmet goes like XP. That was just a dummy, fool. Wires, Plastic and paint. The plot is good, but it’s not as captivating as the first two books.
While those two had some undefined aim and a twist. There are lot of unnecessary stuff around. The Ending was not so pleasant either you could guess it easily. But you gotta give it in for the narrative style and the speech. Grubbs Gradymuch more likable than the first book. Bill-E Spleensticks around for a lot, wastes 2 chapters. Dervishthe man who lost his nuts, I didn’t like him for the first half, then Gradually he regains his senses and becomes the lovable epic demon-ass-kicker.
Junia psychologist who has a softy softy spot for Derv the Perv. And there are a lot of characters here, most of the movie cast are on. Can’t remember most names. He’s back for Revenge. He’s back for Grubbs and Dervish. Though he acts less nobler here slaughtering people, sucking the life out of a little girlhe still is a demon of words. He promised someone something, he gives the something to the someone.
But hell with it! They continue as long as you’re alive. You just have to get on with things. Turn the page, start a new chapter, find out what’s in store for you next, and keep your fingers crossed that it’s not too awful. Even if you know in your heart and soul that it most probably will be. View all 7 comments. Feb 09, Jamie Rose rated it liked it.
