The Demonata

The Demonata is a series written by popular YA author Darren Shan. The series ended with the publication of Hell’s Heroes in 2009, but for fans of horror who aren’t familiar with Darren Shan, he is a gift and this series is a great popcorn (quick and easy) read.

The Demonata begins with Lord Loss, which stars Grubbs Grady, a teen with an unusual family and an even more unusual family history. Not that Grubbs has ever been too interested about his ancestry or why his parents have always pushed him to do better at chess. But his parents have been keeping something from him and just as Grubbs is getting to the root of it, his world is turned violently upside down.
