Once again I went to look at the reviews and I pretty much saw nothing. There were a couple of comments about how it was a pretty good horror novel though not much better than Necroscope, but that is basically about it. It seems to me that there is really not all that much to trigger any memories about this novel. It is not that I read it a long time ago, I didn't, but it was something that was sitting on my shelf that I had picked up off a friend a while ago when he was giving away all of the...more

Hmmmm...what to say about this book?

I went back and forth on whether I even liked the style of writing. I am that torn between liking and hating it. I think the story is a decent one but I think it wasn't told very well, even though it gives off the air of being thoroughly researched. I think the details were very satisfying but at times too many details ruined the imagery. I think the book itself moved right along at a decent pace but the storyline took forever to play out. I liked the characte...more

While I like Lumley as an overall author, I fear he's become of victim of his own success: His Necroscope series is so original, so strong, and so well written, that all of his other works are compared (fairly or unfairly) to that series.

Demogorgon is a decent read, and a story with a strong premise and fair plot. Where it suffers is in immaturity of writing (says the armchair critic who writes nothing more than 4 paragraphs of opinion). The premise is intriguing and the opening successfully ca...more
Brian Lumley gives us a story of Biblical proportions. Well, he gives a story that revolves somewhat around the Bible.

In this novel, a thief finds himself a part of a great battle between the forces of good and evil that is seemingly being won by the evil side. The thief has some things revealed to him about his past that cause him to seek out more answers. This plunges him even deeper into the saga.

Over all, this is a decent story. Lumley paints some pretty interesting new scenarios. He also c...more

I probably wouldn't have hated this book if either I was younger or if it was a horror-action B-movie rather than a book. Maybe if it was a graphic novel.

I thought it was interesting at the beginning, but it soon deteriorated into a generic mindless action story designed to appeal to adolescent males. The main character was a generic action hero. The love interest was a young nerd's sex fantasy. The villain was just another shallow embodiment of evil. They were connected by a thin plot of action...more

As much as I liked Necroscope, this book just didn't do it for me.
Pretty decent horror novel with an awesome cover!
B movie quality!
