This review is from: Demon Apocalypse: 6 (Hardcover)
By far the best book I have ever read. Seriously. Unfortunately, you have to have read all the other five but, they are amazing too. This book especially, involves you. You feel like it is you fighting Demons, you with a wild rollercoaster of a life. At many points, it had me hungry to find out the rest. Trying to save reading it to later is the hardest thing you can do. You can't actually put it down, its that good. It says on the back, "Warning: Seriously Scary," its no lie. Not the sort of scary that you don't want the rest, the sort that makes you wonder how the 'heroes' and 'good guys' are going to get out of this trouble.
Darren Shan, the author certainly does make you get that feeling of caring for the characters, which I think is the best thing they can do. Demon Apocalypse is a mixture of genres, mainly violence and horror but it contains humour and, not as much in this book but in the others, some light, romance. I,personally wasn't really into scary, horror books before I read this one. It hasn't only made me interested in other horror (especially other Darren Shan) books but also others like classicals. Definately good for people who love reading, but find it hard to choose and get into other books.
You absolutely have to read the other five first or else you will not understand or enjoy it, which would be a shame because it is really a great book. If you have read all the others up to book five, buy this book as soon as possible because it will really explain a lot about all the previous books because it has relevance to all the others in the Demonata collection. My favourite book so far. I love it and hope there is another one about Grubitsch Grady because this is a book that really makes you care.
