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.”
"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
From the international multi-million selling author Darren Shan comes a new character, a new scenario, a new set of horrors now in paperback. "Lord Loss" will be devoured by avid Shansters and tingle the spines of many new fans. "The door feels red hot, as though a fire is burning behind it. I press an ear to the wood - but there's no crackle. No smoke. Just deep, heavy breathing! And a curious dripping sound. My hand's on the door knob. Inside the room, somebody giggles - low, throaty, sadistic. There's a ripping sound, followed by snaps and crunches. My hand turns. The door opens. Hell is revealed." When Grubbs Grady first encounters Lord Loss and his evil minions, he learns three things: the world is vicious, magic is possible, demons are real. He thinks that he will never again witness such a terrible night of death and darkness! He is wrong.See all Product description

I know that the target audience is teenagers, and despite this, I would have given it 4 stars as it has a great storyline, however, the author was writing in first person as a teenage character. This gives the book an amateurish feel, not found in the books of other authors writing fantasy for teenagers (eg. Philip Pullman). 3 stars.
It has started the series really well, although having read The Demon Thief, and finding Dervish in that as a youngster, it got me wondering if this should have been the first
in the series, and Lord Loss second.
Having now started and half way through Slawter, the third in the series, and finding Dervish again in that, and just trying to adjust to normal, after his battle with Lord Loss
in the first one, I am even more sure that Demon Thief should have been the first of the series.
Will find out more when I have completed Slawter.
Anyway for what it is worth, they are only my niggles, but must say without any doubt, that the storey lines are real brilliant, and keep you guessing, and away from the "goggle box".
Surprisingly these books are aimed at the younger reader, but must admit, that as a mature reader (will pass these books on to my Grandson for Xmas), I found
the Demon Thief quite frightening, yet extremely exciting, and the twist quite unexpected. Will not say who the thief is, read the book to find out, but I got it
Read and enjoy, once started, you can't put them down, they are that good (both Lord Loss and Demon Thief)
Will give another preview for the third one, Slawter, when I have finished it.
I've read the entire series on paperback, hard cover and kindle..... and more then once each!
eg. SPOILER ALRERT:
the way lord loss was described after he killed graydy's parents i found his appearance quite childish like someone you would find in an episode of spiderman
