About this deal

While Shan’s over-use of gore and violence can be immature and tactless he is also occasionally capable of writing moments of true poignancy. He leads her through his castle and encourages her, showing her torture rooms and the contained victims, whom he tortures with great care and affection.

Though they are his bitter enemies, Lord Loss allowed Disciples to live on multiple occasions, seeing greater sorrow in their futures.He has little choice, considering what shocking events take over his everyday life but he manages to deal with these horrors and even fight back. Lord Loss is seen again at the final battle, where he is blasted and temporarily paralysed by Grubbs. Stephen King for kids … Darren Shan has brought his own brand of vampire mythology into the heads and hearts of thousands of children with his vivid and compelling series The Saga of Darren Shan, about one boy's journey from ordinary lad to vampire prince. He also has the ability to feed on a persons pain, which he needs the way a human needs food and water.

I won't spoil anymore and just say that the last half of the book is as good as the first half, and the climax is delightfully unique.At Books2Door, we believe that reading is a fundamental skill that every child should have to help improve their vocabulary, grammar, and critical thinking skills. I still remember a particular scene where the heroes discover the remains of a small band of humans had been trapped by demons in a shrine in the middle of a forest. There was this spoiled kid Grubbs who was always bothering his sister Gret, and was trying to be a rebel smoking against his parents concerns. If his behavior is only a trick to make the reader be surprised that they will learn to like Grubs, it's kind of a cheap one. A big film buff, with a collection of more than four thousand movies at home, Darren also reads lots of comics and books, and likes to study and collect original artwork, especially comic art and impressionist and post-impressionist art.

Furthermore he confessed that he liked Bec McConn and while she was his prisoner he actually treated her with the same kind of affection he had shown Juni while she was alive. Grubitsch "Grubbs" Grady, the younger child of chess-obsessed parents, grows increasingly uneasy with the recent strange, nervous behavior of his parents and sister. Because of Grubbs' insults to both the game of Chess and Lord Loss himself, Lord Loss vows to make the Gradys suffer, a vow that intensifies in venom as the series progresses. Dervish explains to Grubbs that using magic is possible as Grubbs himself used magic to flee from Lord Loss and his minions.I went into this book without really knowing what it was about and enjoyed the suspense so I will tell no more about it. Kernel was responsible for turning Lord Loss's familiar (Artery) into a human (Art), which led to Kernel discovering his powers.

Grubbs narrowly escapes death, but suffers from PTSD and is hospitalised due to his poor mental state. It’s been over twelve years since I last read this book, coming back to it, I’m filled with so much nostalgia.

But then, by the very end of the book, Grubbs has another great growth of maturity and becomes responsible and interesting again. It seems poised to snag whatever parts of the YA demographic that have not been sucked into the Twilight vortex. Though he does have a natural sadistic streak that is ingrained in his personality, his cruelty largely comes from the fact that he literally feeds on suffering.

I read this a long time ago, back in my early teens, and even met Darren Shan at a book signing at my school.
