The Demon Assassin is the second book in the four book Hell's Underground series. After battling his own brother in the very first book, Paul decides to jump on a train and head back in time to 1940s London, where he promptly gets smacked upside the head with bits of falling building. Meanwhile, his ancestor Harry Rector is doing his level best to kill Churchill and Paul has to somehow stop him. This book is a bit slower than the original. If it were a sandwich filling I'd allocate it the lettuc ...more

Whilst this is a wonderful read I could not bring myself to enjoy it as much as I enjoyed the first book in the series. I’m not exactly sure where it fell short but for me some of the magic was lost. The first one truly blew my mind whereas this book was nothing more than an entertaining read.

It may be enough to keep you interested in the story yet for me it was not as brilliant as it could have been.

Demon Assassin is an adventure novel and the second instalment of the 4 book ‘Hell’s Underground’ series; it is set in World War II London. The intended audience would be older teenagers and adults, most likely who enjoy reading about dark themes such as horror and

Alan Gibbons really is an amazing author with so much talent in writing horror stories. He made the book very interesting and I couldn't stop turning the page. It is incredibly scary and well-written, therefore it is a fantastic book to add to your chat list! The venue is at Great Britain where the WW2 cracks and Hitler and Heydrich's men start to bomb the city. In my opinion, the main character, Paul Rector is a brave, risk-taking leader who goes back in time and suffers amnesia. Slowly, his me ...more
A very good read so far, intriguing characters, historical events and an special depth to it.
