Product description

“The door feels red hot, as though a fire is burning behind it. I press an ear to the wood – but there’s no crackle. No smoke. Just deep, heavy breathing! And a curious dripping sound. My hand’s on the door knob. Inside the room, somebody giggles – low, throaty, sadistic. There’s a ripping sound, followed by snaps and crunches. My hand turns. The door opens. Hell is revealed.”

When Grubbs Grady first encounters Lord Loss and his evil minions, he learns three things: the world is vicious, magic is possible, and demons are real. He thinks that he will never again witness such a plague of death and darkness. He is wrong… The first soul-shaking book of The Demonata.

    “this book is awesome, drama-action-suspense-thriller-horror-slight bit of comedy all in one.Big fan of the series and its characters, once you start theres no stopping you.Darren Shan (although very gruesome) is my author role-model and an all time favourite.His books are almost light-hearted in the most darkest way and terrifying in the coolest way”
