Grubbs keeps having nightmare about demons and his sister, who was killed by demons, trying to kill him. Everytime he wakes up from his nightmare, he is always experiencing some magical moment. Grubbs had made alot of friends and decided to throw a party one day after his uncle, Dervish, left. That same night, he had woken up in the bathroom, only to realize that he was howling like a werewolf.
Darren Shan has done a great job with his bo...more
There is very little action, almost none at all. It's mostly a love story with about 40% of the book dedicated to digging a hole in the ground, the next 40% dedicated to describ...more
One thing about this series I'm anxious about is that, if there is a movie...its gonna be hard to watch!!
The narrative is returned back to Grubbs Grady who learns in this book that (gasp!) he has lyncanthropy. As he deals with that he also deals with your typical high school rubbish with him flirting with some girl he likes named Renee' while Renee's brother, Locke, who is also Grubbs' best friend, bullies Bill-E, Grubbs' other best friend. Why you ask, does a series about demons now...more
We're back with Grubbs (YAY) and the story continues on with the family curse. However this one also holds importance with the events of book 4 (Bec). Things started to come together and make sense. The tunnel from the previous book makes a reappearance, but centuries have passed since Bec's time (think it says somet...more
This story had a very interesting and manipulative plot in the folds. I never saw it coming! Juni Swan comes back and Dervish falls in ever more love with her. The surprising part? Her magic has grown stronger than Dervishes!
The whole story resolves around Grubbs and his dire situations of him starting to turn into a werewolf. The whole story begins with Grubbs and BILL-E searching for Lord Sheftree's treasure in...more

Twisted guts spilled out of Ma Spleen...Grubbs dreams. The twisted story comes back to life with its sounding plot. Now many of you might cringe at the gory details of brutal images such as spilling guts, but the plot keeps you hungry, like Grubbs, for more...

Do you ever think you're a fool for believing, trusting, hoping, wishing, etc? Well if you haven't, you may encounter a moment when you do. After a massacre and life's been chaotic, the therapist is back and you completely trust her. Do you ever feel confused, why oh why is this this way? Why is that that way? So many questions of this and that. How can all that be avoided? Stop being naïve, give trust to only those who really know you? How we measure up to the truth is done in different w...more
Aku cukup kecewa dgn isi buku ini. Karena tampuk tokoh utama kembali berada di tangan Grubbs, si calon manusia serigala, dan sejujurnya (baik sebelum maupun setelah melahap isi buku ini), tidak ada yg begitu istimewa dari buku ini selain menceritakan seperti apakah perjuangan Grubbs dalam menolak p...more
Blood Beast doesn't have any action until the very end. Most part the story is about Grubbs going through the motions of teenage life, while worrying about not so teenage problems on top of that. He might have the family curse; he might turn into a werewolf.
I didn't like Grubbs's teenage problems....more
“The moon’s a powerful mistress. She can reach through any wall or covering and work her wicked charms.”
Blood Beast is the fifth book in the Demonata series.
Things started to come together and make sense.
The tunnel from the previous book makes a reappearance, but centuries have passed since Bec's time but her story becomes very relevant.
Grubbs is still struggling from the aftermath from the set of Slawter, but when he finds himself waking at night in the woods of Carcery Vale, howling in his...more
Dan ngga seperti buku ke-4 yg BEC yang dari awal sampai akhir, banyak banget berantem dan perangnya antara demon dan manusia, di Demonata #5 ini cerita sampai mau ke-bab terakhir boleh terbilang aman dari gangguan iblis....more

And this time he discovers that the only monster he has to face is himself.
Grubbs begins to have nightmares, ones with him covered in blood and being attacked by his late sister....more
Blood Beast is the fifth book in a ten book series, The Demonata, by Darren Shan. It is narrated by Grubbs Grady, who narrates five other books, including the first book (Lord Loss), in the series.
Grubbs saw the mutilated bodies of his parents and his sister at the hands of Lord Loss... and tapped into his magical abilities to escape. He'd been locked in an asylum for crazy people for months... then his uncle came and saved him. He's faced demons more time than he wishes were true... but he's al...more
1berita buruk :
sori untuk 2 bintangnya..
tapi buku ini sangat mengecewakan, setelah buku sebelumnya yang begitu bagus, sangat bagus-- tentunya aku mengharapkan kalau seri selanjutnya juga akan mempertahankan kegilaannya, tapi yang terjadi malah penurunan yang gila-gilaan.
membaca buku ini malah seperti melewati kekosongan yang sia-sia. Banyak hal-hal pointless yang diceritakan, seakan-akan penting banget mengisahkan kehidupan Grubbs yang begitu-begitu sa...more
-Grubbs. I love Grubbs. I feel like he grows exponentially each book, and he becomes more like a man, and less like a boy-child. He’s learning to deal with his problems, and he’s trying to get his life back on track. Plus, he’s just so authentic and real, not like a lot of other teenage boys that narrate Young Adult stories.
-Gore. I love how twisted Darren Shan’s mind must be to come up with the stuff that he does. It is so over the top and bloody and terrifying that it keeps me hoo...more
