Death's Shadow (The Demonata #7)
Fresh hell from the Demonata – you can’t cheat death…
The apocalypse came and the world burned. But it wasn't the end, and out of the destruction, new life has emerged. Bec is back to face the Demonata. After centuries of imprisonment, she's more powerful than ever, but the demons no longer stand alone.
Something else has crawled out of the darkness with her. Lord Loss is no...more
I LOVED the Saga of Darren Shan series when I was a kid and it was first coming out. My brother and I would count the days till the next one was released and then go buy it together and both devour it immediately. I left like there was a hole in my life when that series finished, ha. So of course when he started writing a new series, I started reading that immediately too.
I was 12-14 at this point - 12 when the first one, Lord Loss, came out ...more

Death's Shadow is a tough book for me to say that I love. It is simply far too depressing of a story filled with many bad things for the heroes that we love. I am a huge fan of the series and love Darren Shan's writing style. This is a fabulous world filled with great protagonists and scary monsters and demons. Bec is wonderful in this story but dialed down. All other characters take some scary steps. Death's Shadow clearly lays down the ground work for the upcoming novels.

As always, thrills and chills are felt in this next installment in the horrifying and gripping THE DEMONATA series.
Bec has returned, and what aches her the most, besides adapting to the newest technology of the always-changing world, is having to deal with Dervish and the miles of questions surrounding his deceased nephew, Bill-E.
Although this does frustrate Bec extremely, no time is to waste as werewolves and demons attack the ...more
As with the previous book in the series this one works to give the reader a lot of information about the bigger picture – telling them more about the characters (both the good and the bad) and the magic that is at work in the universe. As a whole it is a very useful book when it comes to gaining knowledge on the universe that exists in the books.

And the gut-wrenching revelations continue. I remember my initial journey through this series, the way I desperately tried to predict the trajectory of Mr Shan's novels, and how I failed. Although the end result is above thrilling, so not being able to predict anything just made it that much sweeter. But it's that memory that stays with me, and how, even having read Death's Shadow before, I'm still amazed. It might not be an entry that has an active apocalypse, but its st ...more
Darren Shan is and always will be one of my favourite authors. I took me a long time to continue in his "Demonata-Series", because I just recently got my hands on a copy of "Death's Shadow", book #7 in the series. I read the books 1-6 in German when I was younger, but they stopped publishing the books in German after that what is really sad. But here I am, having a copy with the good old cover and am happy, because I like Shan's stories so much.
This creepy-ass cover houses one of the best - and saddest - of the series.
While the first books dealt with Lord Loss and the dangers of the demonata (such a wicked yet cool word), we have now realized there is an even greater foe to face. Finally this book reveals who is under the mask and it's not someone I was guessing. It's a big game changer since it completely changes the focus and aims of not just the demons, but now of those who fight them off. Stakes were already grim enough when it was ...more
So after that explosive ending in the previous book I wasn't sure what to expect from this one, and I was quite pleased as this is told from Bec's point of view again, and I really like her as a character, not that I don't like Grubbs because I really do, but there is just something about Bec and I was glad to get her voice back, however bizarrely that came about.
A giant shadow was spotted trying to come through ...more

The demon-fighting heroes have so far delayed the crossings of the dreaded demons. Could they hold for long? Could one last and final obstacle be their most triumphant success or devastating end? How far would you go to fight for a cause that is only pricked with little success and 99.99% failure? How can you kill something that is technically...not eve ...more
“It's the darkness when a light is quenched, the silence when a sound fades. It takes the final breath from the smallest insect and the mightiest king. It knows us all, stalks us all, and in the end claims us all.”
Death's Shadow is the seventh book in the Demonata series.
Bec is back from the dead, and is finally reunited with her childhood friend, but he doesn't stay there for long. His love for her forces him to sacrifice his life to save her. What's worse is that their only ticket out of th ...more
Death's Shadow is my favorite of the books so far (read up to 7). In this book we are reading from Bec's prospective. In the beginning of this book Bec explains her relationship with Dervish. She explains on how Dervish doesn't actually talk to her but asks her about Bill-E. She can read all of his memories so tells him. Once Bec confronts him about it then her and Dervish become better friends then before. Soon after a werewolf attack begins at his mansion. Werewolves and an unknown hu ...more
