Demon Apocalypse: book 6 in Demonata
By Darren Shan
Demon Apocalypse resumes where book five in the Demonata series, Blood Beast, leaves off –soaring through the sky in a jumbo jet plagued by bloodthirsty demons. And, the scenes here are Shan’s most ghoulish work yet. However, it is the decision that Grubbs must make that lies at the beating heart of this novel, and as Shan readers know, when the Demonata are around hearts are often ripped out. This is a transitional novel less driven by plot and character development than by the need to answer questions and unite the action and characters of previous books. Characters like Beranabus, Kernel Fleck, Juni Swan and Bec are all key players in the story. Yet, from the start, the battle scenes seem repetitive, and the timelines and Kah-Gash are a bit confusing. Yet Grubbs makes the most momentous decision of his life and therefore becomes the tragic hero—a hero that despite the tedium in this novel you will want to learn more about in book seven.

Daniel Whittaker why such a low rating?


Erin Forson Love Darren Shan, but this was not his best work. I think the reason I felt this way is best stated below...

Daniel Whittaker fair enough, as a would be writer i am always torn between which to do next, demon apocalaypse was more about action and hopeless (lord!) loss than the other books which were more about setting the scene, thanks for replying, justifies the rating :) at the end of the book i felt it was such a hopeless story that i stopped reading the series altogether- mainly because grubbs left reni behind, i like those sorts of friendships- but picked it up again and am on my way to finishing the series, are the rest of the books better? I've read up to deaths shadow but no further.


Erin Forson It's been a while since I read them, but as I recall they really do get strong again towards the end. You may not see Grubbs in every book!
