9780007231317: The Demonata (4) - Bec

Darren Shan’s acclaimed Demonata series continues with more shocks, demons and thrilling twists in the chilling, Bec.

“I'm almost through the door when something breathes behind me, ‘Beccccc…’ I turn. I can't see anything but I know I'm not alone. I want to call for help but I can't. Then, in a blur, claws dart out of the darkness… a twisted face… fiery eyes… rows of teeth… the demon grabs me!”

As a baby, Bec fought for her life. As a trainee priestess, she fights to fit in to a tribe that needs her skills but fears her powers. And when the demons come, the fight becomes a war.

Bec's magic is weak and untrained, until she meets the druid Drust. Under his leadership, Bec and a small band of warriors embark on a long journey through hostile lands to confront the Demonata at their source.

But the final conflict demands a sacrifice too horrific to contemplate…

Review:

Praise for BEC

"All the spells, severed body parts and horror you expect from Shan, with a nail-biting and shocking finish." Waterstone's Books Quarterly

"To my shame, this is the first of Shan's books I have read; I now understand why they are so popular… Very enjoyable." Books for Keeps

Praise for Lord Loss:

“Utterly unputdownable” The Times

“The master of children’s horror at his blood-curdling best.” Publishing News

Praise for Darren Shan:

Lord of the Shadows
'Stephen King for kids … Darren Shan has brought his own brand of vampire mythology into the heads and hearts of thousands of children with his vivid and compelling series The Saga of Darren Shan, about one boy's journey from ordinary lad to vampire prince. Once they're hooked, kids tend to rip into the flesh of these books, quickly draining them of their life blood. The covers, with images of ghouls, creeping hands and dripping fangs are terrifying alone. ' Metro Life, Evening Standard

Cirque Du Freak
“…fast-paced and compelling book which leaves the reader hungry for more.”
JK Rowling

"I read Cirque Du Freak last week. I loved it. I love the way you manage to juggle the funny with the unpleasant, the affection with the hurt. It's great story-telling."
Roddy Doyle
