Devon March has always known that there really are monsters in his closet but his father assured him that he was stronger than any of them. When his father has a heart attack and dies after telling him he was adopted, he goes to live at Ravenscliff with his nominated guardian only to find his encounters with demons and ghosts increase in frequency and horror. Devon wants to uncover the secrets of his heritage and learn about his increasing powers as a member of the Sorcerers of the Nightwing but will he survive long enough to achieve this? I really enjoyed this book and look forward to learning more in sequels. It would be good reading for anyone interested in magic/paranormal/horror (gothic)literature and I feel sure boys would like them as much as the Harry Potter books.
