Lord Loss (The Demonata #1)
My dad would have kicked Darren Shan for writing this book.
But I won't. XD
Trust me. It's gory and gross. I would never recommend this book to my lil bro. And I've hidden the ebook deep inside the PC so that dad doesn't accidentally find it or worse... read it.(view spoiler)[ Dad hates violence, I can't watch horror movies, play utterly gory games or read stuff on that when he is around (hide spoiler)]
AND PLEASE DONT READ THIS BOOK IF YOU HAVE EXTRAORDINARY IMAGINATI...more
I liked how the hero, Grubbs Grady, gets a hard wake-up call to the realities of his world when his immediate family is slaughtered by demons,...more
I think it must’ve been… I don’t know, maybe three or four years since I read The Demonata series? I probably wouldn’t have picked them up at all if it hadn’t been for my brother, because even though I ogled over The Saga of Darren Shan (a.k.a The Cirque du Freak series), the covers of these books alone was enough to throw me off, and I told myself I wouldn’t bet my money on The Demonata. Buying a book can sometimes be a gamble – how do you know it’s going to be one you’re going to want to r...more
Gak mengecewakan ternyata, meskipun menurut gw lebih seru Darren Shan #1..
dari awal aja ada pembunuhan ups pembantaian, keluarga Grady cuma tinggal Grubbs seorang..
Setelah tinggal bersama Dervish, Grubbs tau sedikit demi sedikit rahasia keluarganya.. kenapa orangtuanya gila catur dan maksa banget agar dy belajar catur.. dan siapa Bill-E
Soal catur... hmmmm gw ga begitu ngerti catur, jadi pas ada duel catur sama Lord Loss, yah... i was kind...more
I can make a text to self connection to Grubbs. Grubbs doesn't always follow the rules and only does things to people if they did do something to him. He has also been left behind when his family leave. Grubbs is somewhat bad but somewhat good to. He is...more
I'll try reading more of this series since this is a very short book and there wasn't much character development but Lord Loss still managed to intrigue me.
3 to 3.5 out of 5 stars.
Grubbs Grady lives with his chess-obsessed parents and sister, Gret. After pulling a prank on her, he's grounded. But after a while, his parents end his grounding early, and he gets treated special. When his parents and Gret go out, he's knows something's going on. He...more
I'd actually intended to take a break before starting this series, I have a book I have to read for a group at work for this Friday (2 days away) so I was going to read that today, but I was drawn to this instead. Let's just hope I can catch up tomorrow.
I wasn't sure what to expect from this seri...more
I had to set upon Darren Shan's 2005 paperback Lord Loss, if not for anything else than the the broken-English "Grisly Glow In The Dark” cover sticker which boasted like the awesomeness of such a thing completely overrides the quality of the book itself, as if sitting looking at it in the dark is a better way of enjoying it than reading the bloody thing.
The central thrust of Crap Looking Books is to judge these books by their covers,...more
Star Rating: 5 STARS
First off a warning this book is intended to give you sleepless nights and no that doesn’t mean up all night reading because you love it that mean cowering under the covers because you’re so frightened (more so in the more bloody parts). If you think you can take it go ahead and read it you will love it I know I did, but if you get petrified easy put the book away. I also would not recommend the book for anyone under 13 in less they are 100 % po...more
This is a horror book, and keeps quite a fast pace th...more
I heard about this book after I quit reading Cirque Du Freak, realizing I wasn’t interested. I saw that Darren Shan wrote another series, so I promptly started it. The Demonata: Lord Loss is a book about a boy named Grubbs Grady, a troublesome kid who lives with his Mom, Dad, and Sister. After getting caught smoking and filling his sister’s towel with rat guts, he realizes how guilty he feels and wishes he could make up for it. But all of that change after his fam...more
-Grubbs. He sounded like an authentic teenage boy, and I enjoyed being trapped in his warped, twisted mind. The way he saw the world was interesting and different. Once again, I’ve come to the realization that the only authors who should be writing from the point of view of teenage boys are people who have ever been a teenage boy, because only male authors seem to get the voice realistic.
-Gore. There is so much blood and gore in this series. It’s almost a gore overload, but it makes...more
Lord Loss is a book filled with captivating action that will please all fantasy and horror buffs alike. Just part one of a series of ten books in the Demonata series, Lord Loss is filled with fast paced action that keeps readers begging for more with each sentence. The reader will look on in shock and suspense as the protagonist, Grubbs Grady, sees his worst nightmares come true in a flash. This book grabs at the emotions of the reader, provoking the reader to know exactly how Grubbs feels as hi...more
Meet Lord Loss. A demon who feeds on the grief of others with his familiars, Vein and Artery (suitable names for bloodthirsty creatures). And when he kills the parents and sister of teenage boy Grubbs Grady, that's when our story begins. Grubbs stays with his uncle Deverish, who seems to be holding some secrets...
This book was an action-packed and frightening read. There were some nice twists, which I like in a book. I...more
1)Confusing as heck. Too many pieces!
2) Boring as heck. I think I may have fallen asleep the first few times I played it.
To me, a nice game of checkers would suffice. Less pieces, and you can even hop over other pieces! Now, that’s not to say I don’t have respect for Chess, I just think that if it was at a faster pace or something, it would be more enjoyable.
Well, my friends. Its a...more
Lord Loss was a chilling story of a boy who’s parents where killed by demons and his quest to find out why they were killed and how he would defeat them. While it seems cool it is actually very boring because the ultimate fight for the main character...more
