Ruined by verbosity,
This review is from: What the Night Knows (Paperback)The premise harks back to some of DKs earlier (and better) works.
The story: an evil demon 'Ruin' takes possession of people and compels them to do the usual bad stuff. They're coming after our hero and his family who are the usual DK characters with the mandatory canine (except in this case it's actually the ghost of said canine). So far so predictable: you know what you're getting with DK.
But, and it's a big BUT, this book is boringly verbose at times and needs serious editing. It's 400 pages long and could easily be chopped back to 300: this would keep the pace up and not lose anything from the main story.
If you're new to DK, don't buy this. Buy The Bad Place, or Watchers or Lightning instead.
