This review is from: The Demonata (8) - Wolf Island (Hardcover)
Well, firstly to say... Thank God this series just got more interesting! Even though Darren Shan is probably my all time favourite author with the Darren Shan Saga, admittedly the last couple of books from the Demonata saga had lost that certain...edge. Rather than admiring the wonderful masterwork of the tradition Shan writing, the last few books had left me with a slightly more bitter taste in my mouth. Not to say the least that they weren't interesting, they were brilliant! (Just not as good as the others).
Now, this new book, Wolf Island has to be one of the best in the series thus far. I thought the storyline was brilliant with the new introduction of a different side to the 'good guys' as we saw them to be and also the development of the main characters (I especially enjoyed the new... ability that Grubbs gains :D). The action and thrill that you could find in all of Darren Shan's pieces can be found jam-packed in this exciting read. (Admittedly, it took me only around 3 hours to finish and during that time I went everywhere with my eyes glued to the book. And I mean...everywhere)
If you have read the previous few books of the series and feel a little disheartened, I assure you, this book will re-capture your expected thrills and spills.
