Review: Demon Apocalypse

Demon Apocalypse
Demon Apocalypse by Darren Shan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Book 6 of Darren Shan's Demonata, definitively one of the most reveling and plot twisting novel of this series up to date. We return to Grubbs, where we once left off from The Blood Beast. The plane aflame passengers in hysteria, demons slaughtering everyone they find. Grubbs' only hope is to take a leap of faith with a bum or hope Lord Loss kills him quickly... which he wouldn't do.

As the title explains there is a demon apocalypse in this novel. So much is revealed, once I look back from book number one (Lord Loss), up to book six the foreshadowing was everywhere. Although that's what makes a good book/series, being able to take even the smallest of events/actions and being able to create a plot twist. I obviously loved every note of this novel from beginning till the end. You'll see reoccurring characters, both those that you're used to reading about when the protagonist is Grubbs and those that you would think are impossible to be in the same timezone. The fact that The Demon Apocalypse ended the way it did, gives one just enough of a thrill, and satisfaction of the demonata story up to date that you'd be able to stop reading the series and be happy with the result. But it also pulls you along wanting all the more.

Darren Shan has once again put me at a loss of words, I was afraid that after Blood Beast it would just continue to go downhill but it pick right back up again, not skipping a beat. I give this novel 5 stars out of 5, it's well written, captivating, for anyone who loves a good created story, or just wants a everyday myth like demons/monsters with a twist. I dare you to put the book down once you start.
